In a medical, aged care residential or child care environment, rodents pose a particular danger, with an infestation having the potential to harm your business, your reputation, your clients and your health.
Rats and mice, like other animals which live in rubbish tips, drains, sewers and other unhygienic places, pick up disease-causing germs from their environment. They then spread dangerous diseases by entering buildings and transferring germs to food, walls and floors, counters, tables, amenities, cupboards, kitchens, storage areas and utensils and other places where people can come in contact with them.
Rats and mice may also pass disease-causing germs to humans by depositing infected urine or faeces throughout a premises on flat surfaces, fabrics and carpets, or by biting humans.
In addition to being major pests because they spread disease, rats and mice can also cause significant damage to furnishings, doors, skirtings, upholstery, books, food and other packaging, stored goods, wires, cables and pipes. Diseases caused by germs carried by rodents include leptospirosis, rat-bite fever and salmonellosis.
Rats and mice differ in size, mice being much smaller than rats. Ground and Roof rats are similar in size. In Australia, there are a number of introduced (feral) rodents which are pests in and around buildings.
Types of rats and mice commonly found inside properties and externally in outbuildings are the Ground Rat (also called the Norway Rat), the Roof Rat (also called the climbing or black rat) and the House Mouse (also called the Field Mouse).
The Norway Rat is usually greyish-brown, but colour varies from a pure grey to a reddish brown. It has a thick body and blunt nose, with small ears that are close to the body.

How can you tell if you have a rodent infestation in your hospital, aged care or child care premises?
Rodents are often not seen by humans when populations are low, and so may not become visible until an infestation is present. The most obvious sign of a rodent infestation is the presence of dead or living rats.
Rodents prefer to hide, so if live animals are sighted, it is probable that a full-blown infestation exists.
Other signs of rodent infestation include droppings, gnawed plastic or furniture, rodent ‘tracks’ and rodent sightings. Rodent nests made from shredded fibres, paper and other materials may be uncovered in storage crates and other dark areas.
