Plague of Mouse Household and Small Business Discounts Now Available Online


Deputy Prime Minister John Barilaro said eligible households can claim up to $ 500 and small businesses up to $ 1,000 to help cover the cost of mouse baits, traps and cleaning supplies purchased after February 1, 2021.

“These rodents have not only had an impact on farmers and crops, they have also been a plague on homes and businesses in all regions,” said Barilaro.

“Tackling this scourge comes at a financial cost and this rebate puts money back in the pockets of hardworking families and business owners.

“Claiming discounts is simple, but you can only apply once, so I encourage residents and small business owners who have spent near the maximum amount available to visit the Service NSW website today. “

Agriculture Minister Adam Marshall said primary producers who live where they work can apply for a one-time rebate of up to $ 1,000 to help cover the cost of protecting their premises.

“Farmers know how to protect their crops and are well prepared to deal with a possible wave of mice as the spring harvest approaches and this shed will also help them protect their homes,” Marshall said.

“By the end of the month, primary producers will also be able to claim a 50% rebate on purchases of zinc phosphide bait, up to a maximum of $ 10,000, through Rural Assistance Authority. “

Eligible customers can apply for a household or small business reimbursement through the Service NSW website, where they can download receipts for purchases of bait, trap and mouse cleaning dating back to February 1, 2021.

Customers who wish to claim the rebate by calling the Service NSW hotline should expect longer-than-usual call wait times, due to the current COVID-19 situation.
