The key signs of rat mites infestation

Biting mites, including rat mites, can be extremely harmful to people, even though they don’t usually carry dangerous pathogens, like chigger mites, for instance. Still, rat mites’ bites on human skin can inflame it and cause unbearable itchiness. Let’s see a list of signs that indicate that your home is under rat mites attack:

  • Itchy bites all over your skin and that of your family members;
  • Skin irritation and similar-to-the-above symptoms in your pet rats or hamsters;
  • Indications of pest rats activity or mice presence on your property;
  • A full-blown rodent infestation, which can easily cause a rat mites problem.

How the rat mites treatment goes

We follow proven pest control practices that involve several steps. The Fantastic exterminators have the expertise and experience to eliminate both the nuisance biting mites and their host, no matter the type of rodent (most likely rats) and the level of the initial infestation. See what to expect on the day of your rat mites treatment session:

Professional inspection

The pest technician will inspect your property and discuss with you any signs of infestation that you have noticed or suspected. As rat mites are often considered a secondary pest issue, caused by the presence of rodents, surely, the Fantastic exterminator will be on the lookout for signs of rat activity, too.

Rat mites treatment

We use industry-grade insecticidal sprays against biting mites, including rat mites, which will effectively eradicate the harmful bugs. The pest controller will advise you on whether you need to leave the premises along with any pets during the treatment. The technician will also provide you with a written report, as well as information on what to avoid doing post-service (ex: not vacuum cleaning for a few days).

Follow-up monitoring

We offer multi-visit services that come with a guarantee of the complete elimination of your pest problem. The option includes further observation and 1 or 2 visits and treatments, upon request, in a space of 1 or 3 months, should you feel that the issue persists. Note that even if the rodents are no longer present on your property because you’ve dealt with them one way or another, the rat mites can still remain active for weeks.

Prevention and proofing

Prevention is important, of course, and in this case, deterring rodents from entering your property in the first place is crucial to avoid a rat mites infestation. The pest exterminator will share with you their expert tips on how to protect your home against pest rats and mice, in order to eliminate the risk of a secondary infestation with biting mites.

Frequently asked questions

  • Q: Do rat mites transmit diseases to humans?

    A: Not really, unlike scabies mites and chigger mites, however, they do bite and can cause skin itchiness and irritation.

  • Q: Can rat mites survive without their host?

    A: Unfortunately, yes. A rat mites infestation can linger for about 6 weeks, even if the pest rodents have been eliminated. Still, a mice or rat control treatment remains the best course of action to eradicate rodent mites, along with spraying the affected areas against the bugs.

  • Q: Are rat mites able to travel far to find a blood source?

    A: To our regret, yes. Firstly, rat mites can go without food for a few weeks and can travel hundreds of feet, despite their minuscule size (1mm), in search of fresh rodent blood.

  • Q: Do rodent mites cause asthma?

    A: Well, dust mites are usually the culprits behind severe allergic reactions and asthma attacks in sensitive people. Rat mites simply bite and cause skin inflammation problems and itchiness.

  • Q: So, can I order both the rat removal and rat mite control services for best results?

    A: Absolutely. We actually recommend this, as rodents are the host of rat mites.

  • Q: What is your coverage?

    A: We provide pest control services in many cities across Australia, including Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth.
