What Type Of Rodents Live In Australia?

The most common rodents found in Australia include:

House Mouse

The House Mouse typically lives in dry, sheltered areas, such as the roof or ceiling, furniture and walls. Abundant in Australia, this species is omnivorous and feeds on grains. Their long, slender body enables them to slip easily through small openings.

Norway Rat

Also known as a ‘Water Rat’, this species is the largest out of the rodents and dwells in sewers, near rivers and even in underground burrows. They have a hostile nature when provoked.

Roof Rat

Roof Rats are small with a slender, black body that typically live in roof spaces. They’re shy in nature, good climbers and avoid the water. Their size makes it simple to slide through openings with ease.

When Are Rodents Most Active?

As warm-blooded mammals, rodents are winter pests that come inside in search of warmth, shelter and food when it’s cold. They’re most active during the night.

Where Do Rodents Live?

Rodents live in residential homes in the walls, roofs, cupboards, furniture and storage boxes. They can also infest commercial spaces, specifically food production and manufacturing companies.

Are Rodents A Health Hazard?

Rodents pose a major health hazard to people and pets, capable of spreading over 35 diseases worldwide through their urine and droppings. They can pollute food with salmonella, as well as cause serious conditions such as typhus, leptospirosis, rickettsial infections and Hantavirus.

Rodents can also spread diseases to humans indirectly through ticks, fleas and mites that may have fed on an infected rodent.

A professional pest controller will have access to stronger ant products with special active ingredients that aren’t available for purchase in supermarkets or retailers.

If you’ve tried everything you can to get rid of an ant infestation in your home or business and seen no results, it’s time to call us in.
