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 amount of diseases such as tuberculosis, salmonella, gastro- enteritis, rat bite fever, leptospirosis and numerous others, all of which have serious health implications. Their droppings and fur will also contaminate food preparation surfaces and foodstuffs. Rodents are incontinent and consequently foul wherever they travel.
Rodents also breed at an accelerated speed. As a yardstick it is estimated that if two mice were left in a building with a food source for twelve months their population would grow to 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.
