Rodents

  • Three common rodent species are found in Singapore: Norway Rat/Sewer Rat (Rattus norvegicus), Roof Rat (Rattus rattus diardii) and House mouse (Mus musculus).
  • The three species have different characteristics and therefore the approaches to control them.
  • Of these, the Norway rat is the most commonly-found species found at food centres, wet markets and bin centres.
  • The roof rat prefers the upper parts of dwellings whereas the Norway rat prefers the lower parts or burrows in the ground outside the building.
  • Birthrate is about 4-8 litters per year, with 5-12 youngs per litter. Sexual maturity is attained in 2-3 months.
  • Their avarage lifespan is about 1 year.
  • A pair of rodents are capable of reproducing about 2,000 offspring in a year!

Signs of infestation: burrows, droppings, runways, gnawing marks, rub marks, sighting of live or dead rodents, rodent sounds, urine stains and rodent odour.

Why Control Them?

  • Transmit many human diseases such as plague, leptospirosis, murine typhus, rat-bite fever, salmonellosis, etc.
  • Consume and contaminate stored food.
  • Damage expensive furniture, computers, equipment, machinery parts... etc and cause fire through biting the insulation of electric wire.
  • Unhealthy living conditions.
  • Devastating to businesses and industries.
  • Violation of laws

What we do:

  • Conduct systematic inspection to detect rodent infestation.
  • A combination of trapping and baiting will be used to reduce rodent infestation.
  • Advise client on rodent proofing against infestation and good environmental sanitation, where possible.
