The Control of Vermin
Many of us think of rats when we hear the word ‘vermin’, however in actual fact it applies to any pest or nuisance animal that impacts on humans 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 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 acute damage to young trees. Grey squirrels also tend to get into loft spaces in residential properties where they will create much damage, including to electrical cables.
Rabbits aren’t strictly speaking vermin, but they do cause various issues for the farming industry. It’s estimated that wild rabbits caused in excess 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 through exclusion or extermination methods. Indeed UK landowners have a legal requirement to control them.
There are many approaches to vermin control, each of which is bespoke to the problem pest. Call one of our Pest Professionals for a free, no obligation consultation.
