Hospitality Pest Control for rodents (rats and mice) in North Western Sydney
Do you have a rodent (rats and mice) problem in your hospitality business premises?
EVO Pest Control can safely and effectively get rid of rodents (rats and mice) in your restaurant, café, bar, hotel, motel, hostel, resort, bed and breakfast, serviced apartment or nightclub.
In a hospitality 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 around business premises or buildings.
Types of rats and mice commonly found in Australian hospitality premises and external buildings such as garages and sheds are the Ground Rat (also called the Norway Rat), the Roof Rat (also called the Climbing Rat or Black Rat) and 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.

The Roof Rat varies from black to brownish-grey, with a slender body, a pointed nose and large prominent eyes.

The Field Mouse has sandy/orange-brown fur on the head and back and yellowish fur on the flanks and white on the belly, and generally a small yellow streak on the chest.

How can you tell if you have a rodent infestation in your hospitality premises or business?
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.
