As Darwin’s leading rodent and pest control provider, we take care of any pest infestation or problems affecting your home or business.
Darwin’s tropical climate and leafy surroundings are an ideal breeding ground for rodents and other pests. Our professionally trained rodent and pest technicians provide safe and effective treatments targeting affected areas of your property.
We offer preventative rat and mice inspections along with a selection of rodent solutions to suit your home or business.
Mice and rats love homes in and around Darwin. Rodents carry disease, spoil food and can damage belongings and infrastructure. Your home provides shelter, food and water. And, if a male and female move into your house, you’ll also provide the perfect breeding ground.
In Darwin, we get reports of black rats in houses from Palmerston to Casuarina. If you see nibble marks in fruit or even through your plastic bread bag, don’t hesitate to treat the problem before it becomes an infestation.
A Flick technician will perform a site analysis to determine the extent of the problem, locate nesting sites and consider environmental conditions. Call (08) 8911 0729.
A mousetrap may lure one mouse. But, Darwin has many native rodents, such as the antechinus and bush rat, which are best not to harm. Also, if you have a black rat loose in the house, a mousetrap may be too small to catch it.
Black rats are excellent climbers, which is why they’re also called roof rats. They nest in wall cavities, trees and burrows around farms. More than one rat can hide well in the roof or walls of your house.
If you suspect you have a rodent problem, book an inspection with Flick to catch all the rodents once and for all.
Black rats arrived in Australia with the First Fleet and spread across the country, as far north as Darwin. They thrive in urban environments. Black rats easily climb up and into elevated troppo houses or walk straight into one storey homes. Once there, they invade wall cavities or the roof and make nests out of shredded material.
Black rats are actually a brown or grey colour with a tail longer than their body. Females have litters of about five to ten young and may have up to six litters per year.
Rats spread diseases through their urine and faeces, including leptospirosis (Weil’s disease), salmonella, and E. coli. They also carry ticks that transmit bacterial infections and cause allergic reactions.
How do pest controllers eliminate black rats from homes?
A Flick technician will inspect your house for signs of infestation, such as rodent faeces, greasy marks along skirting boards or teeth marks. They’ll also look around your home for pet food or stacked paper or wood. The technician will give you advice on how to manage the situation.
Then they’ll advise sanitation, baits or traps to target the nests and adult rodents.
If you suspect you have rodents, don’t disturb them. Call (08) 8911 0729 and get your home inspected by a professional now before it’s too late.

This treatment was an annual residential treatment but Kris went over the pests to be treated and the warranty and explained what was going to happen. He asked about any specifics and how many pests I had seen and went about the job.Thanks Flick, I will be recommending you.read more
After an initial bad start ( I got an inspection and treatment special just over month ago, which the tech finished... everything in just over 1/2 hr and was not thorough at all and seemed more interested in leaving as quick as he could. Still had cockroaches after a month ) Kris the new tech was very friendly and professional. He thoroughly reapplied in all the areas that was missed and did extra applications around the house. Obviously this was done at no charge and done with no questions asked by the office staff. This review is solely on the second visit!read more
