We may live in sub-tropical South East Queensland, but you can’t blame us for rugging up in winter! Unfortunately, neither can whiskered pests like rats and mice!

While having a messy home will significantly increase the chance you find rats and mice. Any home is at risk. This is because what these rodents are looking for is somewhere warm to shack up for the winter, somewhere just like your home.

You’ll be surprised the lengths rats and mice will go to sneak into somewhere cozy, and they’re pretty clever in finding small gaps and openings to enter into. Whether it’s between a pair of bricks, under a doorway, or a hole in your roof, these guys are sure to discover ways into your home.
