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 people 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 through contact with surfaces of water contaminated, for instance, with rat urine, it can lead to the sometimes 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 severe damage to young trees. Grey squirrels also have a tendency to get into loft spaces in residential properties where they will cause much damage, including to power cables.
Rabbits aren’t strictly speaking vermin, but they do create all manner of problems 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 every year, and sometimes 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 totally free, no obligation discussion.
