In your home or garden, rodents - or any other wildlife – are not only serious risk
to your health; they can also damage the fabric and structure of buildings and destroy
crops, plants and flowers.
Rodents need to gnaw constantly as their teeth grow at a highly paced rate throughout
their lives. This can lead to damage to pipe work, electrical cables and actual buildings,
causing fires, floods and expensive repair bills – hence the need for rodent control.
Rodents carry an alarming number of serious diseases such as tuberculosis, salmonella,
gastro- enteritis, rat bite fever, leptospirosis and numerous others, all of which
can have serious health implications. Their droppings and fur will also contaminate
food preparation surfaces and foodstuffs.
Rodents are incontinent and consequently foul and spread disease wherever they travel.
Rodents also breed at an accelerated speed. As a rule of thumb, it is estimated that
if a breeding pair of mice were left in a building with an unlimited food source
for twelve months their population would grow to over 2000!
With many insurance companies no longer insuring against rodent damage, it is important
that this pest is excluded from premises with the latest rodent control techniques
before they cause damage.
