The Control of Vermin
Many of us think of rats when we hear the word ‘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 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 example, 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 serious pest on tree plantations, where it strips back bark and creates severe harm to young trees. Grey squirrels also tend to get into loft spaces in homes where they will cause all manner of 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 in excess of Ã¢ï¿½Â¤ 50millon in damage to crops in the UK each year, and at times there is no choice but to control them either through 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 consultation.
