The Control of Vermin
Many of us think of rats when we hear the term ‘vermin’, however in actual fact it applies to any pest or nuisance wild animal that impacts on people by spreading diseases or harming 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 instance, with rat urine, it can cause 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 significant 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 cause much damage, including to electrical cables.
Rabbits aren’t strictly speaking vermin, but they do create various problems for the agricultural sector. It’s estimated that wild rabbits caused upwards of £50millon in damages to crops in the UK every year, and at times there is no choice but to control them either with exclusion or 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 free, no obligation discussion.
