    Cockroaches

    Cockroaches are primitive and highly successful animals; their general body form has changed little in the past 300 million years. They have adapted well to human habitations and live in most human communities around the world.

    The cockroach is believed to spread a range of disease-producing organisms to humans including salmonella, staphylococcus and streptococcus. Cockroaches prefer warm, humid conditions with a ready food source so your kitchen cupboard is an ideal breeding ground for them. MRP has a very effective and unobtrusive method of controlling these pests which is safe to you, your family and the environment.

    Rats and Mice

    Rats and mice have been a persistent problem to humans ever since people learned to store seeds and other foods. Many disease organisms are carried by rodents and spread through the rodent’s constant uncontrolled urination and droppings.

    Rats and mice gain access to buildings, offices and homes via small holes or gaps in walls and roof. Once in, they roam, urinating in your ceiling and wall cavities and will chew through electrical cables which can cause fires. MRP not only removes these pests, but they can also set up tamper-proof bait stations around the perimeter of your property to catch them before they get inside. For more information on rats and rodents, download a copy of the MRP Rodent Control Guide.
