Rodent Control in Singapore
Unlike what we see in movies and cartoon programmes, there is nothing fun in finding rodents on your property. Rats and mouse belong to the rodent pest family. Besides damages to your property, rats and mice bring about health risks as they carry harmful bacteria that lead to the spread of diseases such as Salmonellosis, Rat Bite Fever and hantavirus.
Rodents in Singapore are a common concern in homes and businesses including shopping malls, restaurants, cafes, hotels and supermarkets. A rat infestation may result in food contamination and can result in serious consequences that negatively impact the brand image and reputation of businesses. Rats and mice reproduce rapidly and the presence of a sole rodent may soon multiply and turn into a potential infestation. This is why it is essential to establish a rodent control programme to contain and resolve a rat infestation on your property.

Rodent Control Solutions
Typically, rodents can enter a property from outside. Hence, a comprehensive rat extermination treatment that targets both indoor and outdoor areas is necessary to get rid of rats and mice infestation. Rat control and mice control may work differently as these rodents have different habits. Therefore, a rodent elimination and extermination programme may include a variety of rodent treatment methods depending on the type of infestation. Here are some common rodent infestation solutions that are widely used in Singapore:
To treat a rodent issue outdoor, a variety of baits are placed in a tamper-resistance box. These baits mimic the food scent including that of peanut butter. The tamper-resistance boxes are then strategically positioned along the perimeter of your premise.
In food-sensitive environments including kitchens and food preparation areas, food-grade baits will be used in place of the usual bait in a tamper-resistance box to adhere to your stringent requirements. It enhances the health and safety of your business while ensuring effective rodent control.
Rodent glue boards are highly effective in eliminating rodents indoors and outdoors. These glue boards are placed on strategic areas with rodent activities upon inspection by our skilled pest specialist.

Therefore, it is recommended to carry out cleaning daily to get rid of contaminants that may land on the surfaces. Besides cleaning, you may consider a professional sanitisation and disinfection misting treatment to thoroughly cleanse your property.
