Rodents (rats & mice) are a serious issue that affect many Australian homes. Our homes are very attractive to them, as they provide them with everything they need: food, water and shelter.

Rodents do not only spread diseases and contaminate food, they also cause damage to your home. Rodents have to continually gnaw on their teeth to keep them from growing too long. They will gnaw on anything, so when you hear noises in your roof, walls or under your home they are not only nesting, but they may be gnawing on your water pipes, plaster, ducting for you heater and air-conditioning, and electrical cables and conduits. Every year homes are water damaged and fires are caused by rodent infestations.


The first sign that you have a mouse problem is often scurrying sounds when you’re trying to sleep. Spoiled food in the kitchen or mouse droppings on the floor are other telltale signs you have an infestation on your hands.

You rarely see mice during the day. Rodents are more active during the night and small enough to fit between the cavities in your walls and under the floorboards. Just because you haven’t seen a mouse, though, doesn’t mean that your property is safe and your health is not at risk. If you notice any of the above problems, call us immediately.


The four most common situations that mice are potentially a problem in Albury Wodonga homes:

  • Food is spoiled and droppings are found in food cupboards pantry area, or cupboards under sink. These are the most common places for mice.
  • Physical activity such as a mouse being seen darting across a room and disappearing into a small gap, behind furniture or an appliance is also a clear indication.
  • When items and personal belongings are in storage areas, sub-floors, garages and sheds can become infested by mice, often shredding the contents for nesting materials and staining areas leaving an obnoxious smell.
  • Noises and scratching heard in roof areas, in walls, and often from beneath the floor, can often indicate a fairly substantial mouse infestation.

In all these situations Pest to Kill Albury can provide a fast, safe and effective solution to quickly and effectively eliminate the existing problem and give ongoing protection against future infestations. All treatments and products used are either safe for family and pets or placed in areas only accessible only by the rodents themselves and not to pets or children.
