Eco Pest Control Warns Brisbane Homeowners of Increased Rodent Populations

 Queensland and New South Wales see a record mouse plague in rural and urban areas.

Eco Pest Control Brisbane along with many other pest control experts, are issuing a warning to all Brisbane homeowners against the rising rodent population throughout the city.

Due to favourable climate conditions throughout Queensland and some parts of New South Wales, the number of rodents in the area and their overactive breeding have brought on issues for farmers and city dwellers alike.

According to experts at CSIRO, Australia’s National Science Agency, mouse plagues similar to this one happen once every ten years or so. Because of the abundance of rain after a long drought, food and shelter sources are more widely available to these pests. To add to that, mice can begin the breeding process as early as six weeks. Once they’ve birthed a litter of pups, they can get pregnant again immediately.

Although mice aren’t migratory animals, they can travel up to 100m and are found in places all over Australia. These small creatures can easily go undetected and are becoming more common in urban areas. This is likely due to a few reasons:

Established populations have more access to food and shelter.

When the weather cools, mice seek shelter inside of homes and businesses.

During the breeding season, mice are found in large numbers and new mice disperse to a widespread area.

The best way to prevent mice from infesting your home or business is to make sure doors and windows are shut, cracks in the walls are sealed, and all garbage is secured in a bin with a tight-fitting lid. Homes and businesses with a lot of clutter are also more susceptible to pest issues. It’s important to keep your space tidy to avoid this from happening.

When filling any holes in your walls or foundation, it’s best to use copper wool. Mice and rats have a habit of chewing right through foam and caulk, so copper wool is going to last you far longer.

It’s important to take preventative measures in your home as mice can cause significant property damage, health issues, and food contamination too. If you’re worried about whether or not you may have mice, here are some good indicators:

Seeing rodents in your home: This is your surefire sign that you’re dealing with a problem. If you spot one mouse, it’s likely that there’s an entire nest somewhere.

Squeaking sounds and feet running across your ceiling or in your walls: The sounds of their feet will make a distinct light tapping sound.

A pungent smell near their dwellings: Mice tend to leave a strong smell near their territory.

Dark or greasy run marks where they’ve been: A mouse’s skin secretes a greasy substance that is used to help them climb through extremely tight spaces.

Food or packaging with chew marks: Mice love getting into human food. Watch your packaging for bite marks and make sure your food is stored properly.

Nesting material in certain areas (shredded paper, old wrappers, etc.): Like birds, mice make their home as a nest. They’ll use whatever soft and cushiony material they can find.

Mouse droppings on the floor near walls: Second to actually seeing a mouse, finding small brown pellets are a solid indicator that you have mice in your home or business.

Small urine streaks on carpeting or wood floors: Mouse urine looks like a small streak on any floor.

However, sometimes all efforts will fail. Mice are sneaky creatures, so there may be instances where you need to call in an expert.

Its patented Liquid Natural Clay (LNC) enables sustainable ecosystem management by restoring and protecting soil’s ability to preserve water and increase yields for agriculture, forests and green landscapes.

In December 2021, Desert Control Americas was established to bring LNC to the U.S. to combat water scarcity and enable climate-resilient agriculture and sustainable ecosystem management in states like California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and Texas. Michael Davidson joins to spearhead the company’s mission in the U.S. as of January 6, 2022. His first weeks are spent at the group headquarters in Norway and visiting the company’s operation in the United Arab Emirates.

Michael Davidson has 30 years of experience within the agriculture sector in the U.S. with a track record that includes senior leadership positions for start-up companies as well as growing established organizations in the agricultural industry with a focus on irrigation solutions and water management. He also built a consultancy firm specializing in Climate-Smart Agriculture and has served as a consultant and advisor to organizations such as the International Finance Corporation (IFC) of the World Bank, the Sustainable Trade Initiative, the Inter-American Development Bank and a host of NGOs.

About Desert Control:

Desert Control specializes in climate-smart Agri-tech solutions to combat desertification, soil degradation and water scarcity. Its patented Liquid Natural Clay (LNC) enables sustainable ecosystem management by restoring and protecting soil’s ability to preserve water and increase yields for agriculture, forests and green landscapes.

LNC enables sand and degraded soil to retain water and nutrients, thus increasing crop yields and ecosystem resilience while preserving water resources by up to 50%.

Agriculture and food production already consume more than 70% of all available freshwater. Desertification and soil degradation further increases water consumption in a negative spiral. Our growing global population will require more food in the next 40 years than was produced over the last 500 years, putting even more pressure on vital resources such as water. This is the problem Desert Control is determined to solve. According to the United Nations, twelve million hectares of fertile land perish to desertification, representing an annual $490 billion loss to the global economy.

Desert Control’s vision is making earth green again.
