Our Control Methods


Urban Pest Management has a variety of control measures available at our disposal. For rodent control we use baiting as its very effective as rats don't tend to be suspicious of new food, sticky boards to enable numerous rats or mice to trapped at once, live trapping for native rodents / clients who don't want to wish harm to their guest, and live trapping is useful where inaccessible dead rats cannot be tolerated or for cleaning up "bait shy" individuals after a baiting program.

Our office provides free quotations for treatment tailored to suit your budget.
