Reliable Rodent Pest Control

Rodent Icon

The most common nuisance rodents found around the gold Coast, Tweed and Byron are the Black Rat, the Brown Rat and the House Mouse. These vermin typically live in groups, in nests, constructed of soft materials such as paper, fabrics and insulation. Their nests can be found in wall and roof voids, under floors and in and around stored goods, typically near a source of water.

In addition to their ability to cause significant property damage, rodent infestations pose a serious health risk to humans due to their ability to transmit diseases to humans by a variety of means.

Surekil Pest Control’s expert technicians manage rodents for industrial plant, construction sites, shopping centres, schools, aged care facilities, cafes, restaurants and homes across Southeast QLD and Northern NSW.
