The Control of Vermin
Many of us picture rats when we hear the word ‘vermin’, however in actual fact it applies to any pest or nuisance animal that impacts on humans by spreading diseases or destroying crops and livestock.
Rats were of course responsible for the Black Death or bubonic plague, or to be exact it was in fact the rat flea that initially transmitted it. To this day rodents carry a micro-organism that causes leptospirosis. The micro-organism lives in the rat without causing illness, but if passed onto humans either by direct contact or by means of contact with surfaces of water contaminated, for example, with rat urine, it can bring about the potentially fatal form of leptospirosis known at Weil’s Disease.
The introduced North American grey squirrel is in fact a rodent and is a serious pest on tree plantations, where it strips back bark and creates severe damage to young trees. Grey squirrels also tend to get into loft spaces in houses where they will create all manner of damage, including to power cables.
Rabbits aren’t strictly speaking vermin, but they do create all manner of problems for the agricultural industry. It’s estimated that wild rabbits caused in excess of Ã¢ï¿½Â¤ 50millon in damage to agricultural crops in the UK each year, and sometimes there is no choice but to control them either through exclusion to extermination techniques. Indeed UK landowners have a legal liability to control them.
