Often kept by us, in their domesticated form, as pets, the Brown Rat and the House Mouse cause untold problems in homes and businesses throughout the country each year. Given favourable conditions, both rodent species can breed at an alarming rate, forcing their offspring to seek further refuge in other areas of an already infested building. If no control measures are put in place to prevent this, they can soon overrun any given territory. Mice are doubly incontinent, depositing urine and fecal matter everywhere they travel. Whilst rats often have organised toilet areas, a percentage do carry the Leptospirosis (Weil’s Disease) pathogen in their urine, a disease known to be fatal in humans should it not be treated early enough.
Rodents must gnaw to wear down their continually-growing incisor teeth and so become a fire hazard when active in areas where electrical cables are run. This, coupled with the disease they can potentially spread through contamination of work surfaces and foodstuffs make them a serious health and safety risk in any premises. All rodent infestations can be dealt with successfully using any of our RSPH Level 2 qualified field technicians.
