Rodents

Rats pose a major risk to human health as they assist in the transmission of serious diseases.

There are measures that may be taken in order to minimise the likelihood of harbouring rats.

Store firewood away from the sides of sheds and fences and keep it off the ground.

Keep your yard clean and tidy

Remove fruits and vegetables from trees/brushes/vines as they ripen.

Block all potential access points around the building.

Keep pet food dishes clean and keep pet food containers sealed.

If there are a large number of rats/rodents on your property it is advised that baits be used in conjunction with the methods listed above.
