Rodents Pest Control & Treatment Methods

Rats & mice are very successful in their survival capabilities and adaptability in our environment. They are not only feared for their destruction to human properties such as household items, equipment, wires & cables by their constant gnawing but also the transmission of many human diseases such as plague, leptospirosis, murine typhus, rat-bite fever & salmonellosis.

In Singapore, the common rodent species are:

  • Norway or Sewer Rats (Rattus Norvegicus)
  • Roof Rat (Rattus Rattus Diardii)
  • Little Mouse Rat (Rattus Exulans)
  • House Mouse (Mus Musculus)
Rodents


Rodents are primary nocturnal creatures, meaning they are active at night. Their poor vision is adapted for night vision. They have sensitive whiskers (vibrissae) & guard (tactile)hairs that give them a keen sense of touch and thus, they prefer to run along walls or between things. Agile & extremely sensitive to sound, especially any sudden ones will cause them to attempt escape immediately.

They like the odour of most food eaten by men and prefer fresh over decayed ones. Very accustom to the smell of men, our odour on baits or traps does not repel them. However, due to bait shyness, they will not enter them immediately but instead only few days later when they become familiar with these new items in their environment.
