Rat Control Melbourne

Rats are seeking food and shelter and will take up residence in your home if they find easy access points. Coming in through gaps in door and window frames or under the floorboards, they will quickly make themselves comfortable right under your nose.

During winter rats will persist in finding shelter more than other seasons, to protect themselves and their pups from the cold. It’s important to prepare your home and ensure you’re not inviting an infestation during winter.

A regular pest inspection will ensure that any access points or conditions that attract rats are eliminated. Preventive routine inspections are recommended if you’ve had problems with rats in the past. If you do happen to have an infestation, our professional technicians have a good handle on the behaviours of these clever little rodents and will identify and locate any access points and nests. They will also immediately get to work with a treatment plan to remove rats from your home and prevent future infestations through proofing recommendations.

We use environmentally friendly pest treatments, using human-safe, pet-safe and humane processes to remove rats from your home. All our work comes with a warranty providing proofing recommendations have been implemented.

Did you know?

A female rat will give birth to four to six litters a year, with each litter containing five to ten young rodents. These young can reproduce three months after birth, so within one year, a single pair of rodents can be responsible for as many 400 – 700 little pests.

Let us do the dirty work and remove rats from your property

Our experts delivering rats control services in Melbourne know that nests are often found close to where they scavenge for food and water. Rats are active at night and therefore trying to find the nest yourself is difficult. We know where to find them and will have them identified and removed from your property in no time.

With many years of experience in rat pest control, our expert onsite team will identify the extent of rat infestation, access points and scope of the problem. We’ll recommend the right solution for you on the day and immediately get to work.

Rat control treatment includes:

Identification of the type of rodent and recommended actions
Baiting the roof void and subfloor area with professional treatments
The use of rat lockable tamper proof boxes externally where safe to do so
Professional analysis, treatment, and a report to eradicate the rats and proof measure requirements to prevent them from returning.

A small investment for a large return – your peace of mind.

The service was held in professional way. I wasn't though asked and I didn't give any permission for the pictures taken from my place and see those pictures at a later stage on the inspection report. I do understand that the technician use these as a proof that he conducted the place and did the inspection finally but it should get my permission first.

Pest Police were efficient throughout the entire process of having termites removed from our home. They are excellent communicators - replied back extremely quickly and even followed up when we forgot to call or reply. They have excellent attention to detail and ensured all termites were removed before they cleared us for further work. We highly recommend them for their professional and thorough service.

Well, I will probably echo what several other customers have said but since the minute we established communication, Pest Police have been great when looking after our rodent issues. Communication with Lily was very easy and accessible but thorough. Steven is a very knowledgable and experienced professional and the type of guy who loves his job and explains the dos and don'ts in simple words. I highly recommend Pest Police and actually, will call them back for more at any time. Cheers! 2 years already.....well, PP are now the 'go to' for our yearly pest checkups and recently helped me out with a Wasp problem. Same communication level and results, great service of course.
