Rodent Types Commonly Seen Around Sydney
Australia has over 60 indigenous rodent species, as well as three introduced species. Their ability to eat different types of foods, their small size, and a quick breeding cycle is why these mammals easily thrive.
The following pest rodent species are commonly seen throughout New South Wales:
Norway rat – These are brown coloured rats that come out at night and usually live between 9-12 months. They can be over 30cm long and weigh up to 0.5 kilos.
Roof rat – These black coloured rats are excellent climbers and create their nests inside roof voids and other safe spots in buildings. On average, they live for 9-12 months and are around 20cm long.
House mouse – These grey or brown coloured rats live both indoors and outdoors and close to where humans live. Their average lifespan is around 12 months and they grow up to around 10cm in length.
The Importance Of Rodent Pest Control
Many people and pets have experienced health issues due to rodent infestation. In fact, rodents were responsible for the Black Plague that devasted Europe all those years ago and have caused millions of people to die throughout history.
This is why rat removal and mice control have always been a necessary endeavour. Below are more specific reasons as to why these pests must be swiftly dealt with. These are all very serious health risks that should not be overlooked or underestimated.
Rodent droppings found in food will contaminate it and cause anyone who eats it to contract mouse typhoid or mild meningitis.
People may become infected by leptospirosis from being in direct contact with rodent droppings.
Rickettsia typhi bacteria gets transmitted to humans through blood-sucking fleas that infest rats. This can lead to people getting sick from Murine Typhus fever.
Rats and mouses sometimes bite humans, causing rat-bite fever.
Rodents often introduce allergens into homes that trigger asthma symptoms.
Many mice carry ticks, and these ticks can cause Lyme disease.
Rodents tend to damage personal property, including electrical wirings.
