AsIf you live in City, you might find that--There are so many rats recently!

These little guys can be seen not only at home, but also in many restaurants and shops on the first floor.

Following the mosquito disaster last year, this year Melbourne City began to be infested by rodents.

But do you know the cause of this rat disaster? It's Melbournesubway!

It turns out that because City is building a subway, many mouse homes have collapsed...

Coupled with the recent cold weather, the rats who had left their homes had to start to escape into the building. As a result, there has been a phenomenon that rats frequently appear recently.

This also caused a headache for the people at the Pest Management Center. The employees complained that the Melbourne Metro Company recently recruited them to hunt rats, and they were simply too busy to use rodenticide.

"Usually at this time we are focusing on pest control, but this year there will be a lot of rats."

"I have never seen so many mice, because they have no home to go back, so they have to run out."

"Although we are already working hard to eradicate rodents, this situation may continue for some time."

And the rate of reproduction of mice is beyond imagination:

Female rats can breed once every 3-4 weeks, and can produce 6-8 pups at a time.

At this rate, within a month, whether you live on the 1st floor or the 33rd floor, rats will knock on your door.

People from the pest control department said that in this November, you will still see rats often.

After all, spring is here, and it's time for the little animals to mate.

But they are already working hard, and now there are still several large rodent traps located inFlagstaff Gardens, Batman Park, Carlton Gardens and Fitzroy Gardens.

Those who want to watch the large-scale rat-catching revelry can go to the scene to observe, otherwise these places should go around.

It’s not just a mouse,Melbourne snakes, insects, spiders and ants are beginning to appear:

Xiaoqiang began to appear on the toilet floor, mosquitoes began to surround sound, spiders began to make holes in your house, and all kinds of bugs, termites, mice... Without paying the rent, let alone Australia, it's the season of going out and stepping on snakes.

Previously, according to data from the service trading website HiPages, the animals abound in various districts of Melbourne are still different. For example, Brighton's ants are flooded, Werribbee has become a world of rats, Craigieburn has been "conquered" by spiders, and cockroaches and bugs in Melbourne CBD area , Tarneit area is "rich" pests, Richmond has a lot of termites, and the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, especially Berwick and Wantirna areas, produce hives...

Don't shake it left or right to prevent the mouthparts from breaking. Then, wash your wounds and hands with alcohol or soapy water.

If you find itchy skin in your family, these things are probably the cause.

Australia has a huge army of ants. It is easy for you to kill the ants.

After the ants crawled over, they were poisoned and brought the toxins back to the ant nest, causing the entire ant nest to have a plague, the queen died, and the whole nest was considered extinct.

Indoor use of Phantom from BASF Pharmaceuticals is a safe drug certified by the Australian HACCP agency. It is also contagious, allowing the ants to return to the nest with the drug, and then the queen dies.
