From Preparation to Treatment


How do I need to prepare my home for a rodent service?

For families with unborn or newborn babies, we recommend minimising exposure to any pesticide that you may come into contact with.

For pet owners, we recommend removing the animal/s from the area being treated. If there is a treatment to be carried out to the exterior of the home, the ideal would be if the animal can be moved to a neighbour or friends property whilst the treatment is being carried out, if that is not possible then place the animal in the garage or laundry whilst the exterior is being treated. The animal can be returned outside according to the recommendation given by your technician. For more information in regards to other pets (reptiles, fish, rodents etc.), please visit our FAQ page.



How do rodent inspections work?

Rodent inspections are pivotal to tailoring your Integrated Pest Management System (IPM). To determine the most effective treatment, our technicians must first analyse:

  • Nesting sites;
  • Behavioural patterns;
  • Environmental conditions; and
  • Structure of your property.

What methods are used to control rodents?

Rats and mice must be monitored very carefully in order to keep them under control and ensure they do not wreck your property or harm the health of your family. A large amount of the world’s food loss and spoilage is caused by contamination or physical destruction and consumption by rodents. About a fifth to a third of food in the world does not get eaten by humans thanks to rodents. Our four approaches include:

  1. Sanitation by reducing the food and shelter available for rodent activity
  2. Rodent-proofing which involves altering the building structurally so that rodents cannot gain entry.
  3. Trapping and captures the rodents using traps.
  4. Chemical Control which covers a wide variety of techniques including baiting, use of tracking powders and gels and in extreme cases, fumigants.

Flick Anticimex uses rodent baiting stations which are highly secure and designed to ensure the rodents are unable to get away with the Rodenticide baits. This is crucial in places where food is being handled, as it prevents cross contamination. Secure bait stations enable you to set your mind at rest since you need not worry about the Rodenticide being moved by the rodent from the station and harming any another animals or people.

All of Flick Anticimex’s rodent bait stations are located in strategically chosen spots based on the specifics of your property, your rodent treatment programme and your requirements, and then securely installed. They are typically placed around your property’s perimeter, close to entrances and in places likely to be breeding grounds, hiding places or food sources for rodents. Each rodent station is assigned a number and clearly marked out on a plan which is then stored in the service register.


Professional versus DIY pest Control

Homeowners tend to try DIY solutions when trying to deal with rodent issues. Some homemade remedies include essential oils and mothballs. Unfortunately, these are rarely effective when dealing with serious infestations. The wisest move on the part of anyone facing rodent problems is to immediately contact a pest control specialist and arrange for an inspection. Professionals can not only get rid of infestations quickly but can also help to deter rodents from returning.

Rodent control tips to complement your IPM

If you live in a densely populated neighbourhood or in an apartment complex, it may be wise to coordinate activities with neighbours, aimed at preventing infestations, such as cleaning up the area or changing the landscape. Individual homes can also be made more rodent-resistant by finding and sealing points that rodents may be able to exploit to enter the property.
