Jim’s targeted rat control and removal

Getting rid of rats requires a combination of patience and professional targeted treatment involving the following steps:


Our technician will conduct a survey of your site, and note down findings and report back to you with a proposed treatment plan.

Rat baits

Strategically positioned bait stations which contain a bait that is treated with rodenticide are used to attract and poison rats, while other animals are unaffected.

Rat traps

For severe outbreaks and situations where baits cannot be used, we’ll use traps to lure and immobilise rodents. These traps are specifically designed for rats being larger in size.

Tracking powders and tracking gel

In some outbreaks, we may need to apply powder or fluorescent gel to get an idea of rat movement patterns and help us to better position traps and baits.

Problems caused by rats

Not to be mistaken for mice, rats have been known to be equally troublesome around homes and businesses across Toowoomba. Their larger size, heavier weight and larger teeth makes them stronger and powerful so they are capable of causing more physical damage than mice.
