Major Rodent Species Seen in Australia

Australia is home to more than 60 native species of rodents as well as three that have been introduced. With the ability to eat a wide variety of foods, their small size, and their short reproductive cycle, they are a very successful mammal. In Victoria, you'll often see the following types of common pest rodents:

  • Norwegian Rat - These brown rats are active at night and have a lifespan of 9-12 months.
  • Roof rat - Black rat has excellent ability to climb and nest in rooftop spaces and buildings. Their average lifespan is 9-12 months.
  • Domestic Mouse - These brown or gray mice live indoors or outdoors but in close proximity to humans. Their average lifespan is 12 months.

A rodent infestation causes a number of health issues in humans and pets, and rat removal and control is a must for every home and business in Melbourne.

The importance of rodent pest control in Australia

The damage associated with a rodent infestation is often beyond your imagination. It is known to transmit a number of diseases to humans and has claimed millions of lives throughout history.

  • Contamination of rodent droppings in food, causing typhoid and mild meningitis.
  • People may get leptospirosis due to direct contact with rodent feces.
  • Through the blood-sucking fleas that infect mice, the Rickettsia typhi bacteria may be transmitted to humans and lead to infection with typhus fever.
  • In some cases, rats and mice may bite humans, and this can lead to rat fever.
  • Rodents often introduce allergens into the home environment and can trigger asthma symptoms in humans.
  • Mice often carry ticks, which can lead to Lyme disease - a very serious health condition with long-term consequences.
  • Rodents inside the property can damage personal property, including electrical wires.

Because of these risks, you cannot wait until you see signs of rodents in your home. Call same-day pest control for immediate rat pest control and rat protection services to protect yourself, your family or workforce.
