As Gold Coast’s leading rodent and pest control provider, we take care of any pest infestation or problems affecting your home or business.
Gold Coast’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 the Gold Coast. 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.
On the Gold Coast, we get reports of brown rats in houses from Coomera to Coolangatta. 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 (07) 5515 7980.
A mousetrap may lure one mouse. But, the Gold Coast has many native rodents, such as the antechinus and bush rat, which are best not to harm. Also, if you have a brown rat loose in the house, a mousetrap may be too small to catch it.
Brown rats nest in burrows under houses, in compost heaps or in rubble and a dominant male can roam 100m at night in search of food.
If you suspect you have a rodent problem, book an inspection with Flick to catch all the rodents once and for all.
Brown rats, also called Norway rats, are common in coastal, urban areas such as the Gold Coast. They’re bigger than other introduced rodents, like the house mouse or black rat and love waterways, earning their other common name, the water rat. Brown rats can become aggressive if provoked, so if you see a live one, call us immediately.
Females have an average of 3 to 7 litters per year. Brown rats can squeeze through a hole smaller than 2cm in diameter and can climb up pipes, jumping as high as a metre.
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 brown 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 (07) 5515 7980 and get your home inspected by a professional now before it’s too late.
