About Rodents

Rodents in Australia

There are a wide variety of native and invasive species of rodents in Australia. There are some key identifiers that separate the natives from invasive species.


For rats, it is their courage and eating habits. Native rats eat mostly foliage and roots, and will run away from humans, whereas black and brown rats (invasive) will not be too worried by humans and even sometimes eat out of people's hands. They will eat almost anything, and are often caught in the act of dumpster diving. Find out more about native vs invasive rats here.


Mice are possibly the most invasive and damaging pest in Australia. The common house mouse is native to parts of Asia, but have spread throughout the world. They can breed incredibly quickly, turning into a plague very quickly in the right conditions. There are a few other native rodents that may look similar, but like the native rats, feed on mostly plants, insects and even other mice. Find out more about native vs invasive mice here.

To identify if you have a native rodent or an invasive one, it is good to book a pest inspection to know for sure.

Telltale signs are food scattered about in pieces like the picture above, wires, wood or other items with tiny chew marks.

Rats and mice also leave cylindrical brown droppings on areas that they have been sitting. These can carry diseases, so it is best to dispose of them in a hygenic manner.
