The Control of Vermin
Many of us picture rats when we hear the term ‘vermin’, but in actual fact it applies to any pest or nuisance wild animal that affects humans by spreading diseases or destroying crops and livestock.
Rats were of course responsible for the Black Death or bubonic plague, or to be precise 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 result in 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 acute harm 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 various difficulties for the farming sector. It’s estimated that wild rabbits caused in excess of £50millon in damage to agricultural crops in the UK every year, and sometimes there is no choice but to control them either with exclusion to extermination methods. Indeed UK landowners have a legal liability to control them.
There are many approaches to vermin control, each of which is unique to the problem pest. Call one of our Pest Professionals for a totally free, no obligation consultation.
