Rodent Control – What’s Your Problem?
The Australian dream; the house, a big backyard, plenty of space for the kids. We all want it, but that space sometimes hides more than discard frisbees; backyards are the perfect habitat for rodents to hide in.
We’ve all had that dreaded moment. You pick up a nibbled box from the back of the pantry, you spot a scarpering movement along the back fence, or you may have been lucky enough to find one of the ‘presents’ rodents often leave behind. It’s the dreaded moment you realise you have a pest control problem.
How bad can rodents be?
Whilst unpleasant, spotting the markers of a rodent invasion could be the best thing you do all year. If you do have a rodent problem, it’s important to be able to tell the difference between them, as they can pose very different threats to your family, pets or workplace.
Mice are known to sneak around pantries, nibbling at.. Read More
Rodent Control: When Rats Come to Visit
We all love West Australia’s wide open spaces - backyards, parks, even industrial areas – and one thing these all have in common is a vulnerability to rat invasions. Rat populations create nests in quiet, out-of-the-way spaces that are all too common in the typical Perth landscape. In addition to creating smells, agitating pets and being known for disease, what do we really know about these critters?
What damage do rats cause?
More imposing than mice, having a rat problem can be the cause of extensive damage to your property. The issue is two-fold; rats need to gnaw constantly to keep their teeth short, and as larger members of the rodent family they’re particularly strong and resilient. They’ll chew through food and wiring, tread water for 3 days, gnaw through aluminium sheeting, and they’re even known to produce up to 15,000 descendants in one year! Ignoring the.. Read More
So, It’s Time For Mouse Control?
Tap tap, scratch rattle
Do those noises sound familiar? Perhaps you’ve heard them at night but turned the light on to find nothing. Were you dreaming? You may have some uninvited house guests lodging in the backyard or roof; you may have discovered a family of mice.
What’s the big deal? They’re cute!
While many a cartoon mouse has delighted us on TV, discovering a mouse nest on your property can be indicative of a severe problem. WA’s Department of Health warns that mice and rats can bring diseases or parasites in your home, in additional to the superficial damage they can cause to residential and commercial property.
How can you tell if you have a mouse control problem?
Firstly, mice can colonise anywhere in the Perth Metro Area, so it pays to always stay on the lookout. Signs you have mice can include:
Gnawing marks on walls and / or furniture

Watch out: it’s Millipede Infestation Season!
While it may sound like the plotline of a B-grade horror movie, many home owners around Perth are all-too-familiar with what happens when Portuguese millipedes come marching out of the garden and into the house, making a new home for themselves in pantries, wardrobes and even bedding.
Realising you’re sharing your bed with creepy-crawly uninvited houseguests isn’t a very pleasant way to wake up, but that’s not the only problem: millipedes can excrete a pungent liquid which stain skin, clothes, carpets and floors.
These particular guests don’t just share your bed and get into your food: they’re also awfully hard to get rid of, which is where The Pest Guys come in!
‘Tis the Season for Millipede Infestation
Millipedes tend to be most prolific during the rainy periods of the year - spring and autumn. Of these seasons, autumn is the worst time for millipede invasions, but.. Read More
