Rats are the most problematic and damaging rodents in Cyprus. They consume and contaminate food, damage structures and property, and transmit parasites and diseases to other animals and humans.
Rats live and thrive under a wide variety of climates and conditions; they are often found in and around homes and other buildings, farms, gardens, and open fields. People do not often see rats, but signs of their presence are easy to detect. It is important to know which species of rat is present in order to place traps or baits in the most effective locations.
The two species of rat in Cyprus are the Black Rat or Ship Rat (Rattus Rattus) and the Brown Rat (Rattus Norvegicus).
Our technicians place specially designed rat stations in critical areas, and a chemical bait is inserted in the rat stations, which lock for extra safety. We also spray the area for fleas with chemicals (as rats carry fleas.)
The house mouse (Mus musculus) is one of the most bothersome and economically important pests in Cyprus. House mice thrive under a variety of conditions; they are found in and around homes and commercial structures as well as in open fields and agricultural lands.
Mice consume and contaminate food meant for humans, pets, livestock, or other animals. In addition, they cause considerable damage to structures and property, and they can transmit pathogens that cause diseases such as salmonellosis, a form of food poisoning.
Mice are small rodents with relatively large ears and small black eyes and usually are light brownish to gray in color. An adult is about 5-1/2 to 7-1/2 inches long, including the 3- to 4-inch tail.
