The Control of Vermin
Many of us picture rats when we hear the word ‘vermin’, however in actual fact it applies to any pest or nuisance wild animal that impacts on 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 by means of 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 significant pest on tree plantations, where it strips back bark and creates acute harm 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 electrical cables.
Rabbits aren’t strictly speaking vermin, but they do create various difficulties for the agricultural industry. It’s estimated that wild rabbits caused in excess of Ã¢ï¿½Â¤ 50millon in damage to agricultural crops in the UK each 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.
