The Control of Vermin
Many of us think of 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 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 result in 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 significant pest on tree plantations, where it strips back bark and causes acute harm to young trees. Grey squirrels also tend to get into loft spaces in residential properties where they will cause all manner of damage, including to electrical cables.
Rabbits aren’t strictly speaking vermin, but they do cause all manner of problems for the agricultural industry. It’s estimated that wild rabbits caused upwards of Ã¢ï¿½Â¤ 50millon in damages to agricultural crops in the UK every year, and sometimes there is no choice but to control them either with exclusion to extermination techniques. 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.
