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 affects people by spreading diseases or harming 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 acute harm to young trees. Grey squirrels also tend to get into loft spaces in houses where they will create much damage, including to power cables.
Rabbits aren’t strictly speaking vermin, but they do create all manner of issues for the farming industry. It’s estimated that wild rabbits caused upwards of Ã¢ï¿½Â¤ 50millon in damage to agricultural crops in the UK each year, and at times there is no choice but to control them either with exclusion to extermination techniques. Indeed UK landowners have a legal liability to control them.
