Mice And Rat Extermination

Canberra is home to the Brown Rat, Black Rat and the House Mouse to name a few and these pesky critters are no laughing matter.

About Our Mice & Rat Control

In the Canberra region, it’s common for mice and rats to be more active during the colder months of winter; whilst they seek warmth.

Mice and Rats can be a serious problem in your home as their carriers of disease, can often contaminate your food and can cause serious damage electrical wiring. The later has, in rare cases, led to house fires!

Armageddon Pest Control employs lockable boxes to trap the rodents in areas accessible by children or pets.
