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 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 instance, with rat urine, it can lead to 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 causes acute damage to young trees. Grey squirrels also have a tendency to get into lofts in residential properties where they will create much damage, including to power cables.
Rabbits aren’t strictly speaking vermin, but they do cause various issues for the farming sector. It’s estimated that wild rabbits caused upwards of £50millon in damage to agricultural crops in the UK each year, and at times there is no choice but to control them either through exclusion to extermination methods. Indeed UK landowners have a legal obligation 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.
