Rodent and Rat Control

Being social animals, rodents are well adapted to living in close proximity to humans, sharing food and shelter. Rodents are one of the pests the food and warehousing industry has to deal with the most. They are very good at hiding and look for places that people won’t easily see, to build their nests. Sheds, roof voids, gaps between piles of stock or piles of debris are some of their favourite places for nesting. Outdoors they may nest in burrows, under buildings, in rubbish heaps and other places where food and shelter are within their reach.

Rodents or Rats can cause major damage by gnawing their way through whatever they can find. Rats and mice are constantly leaving droppings behind and are notoriously incontinent. Therefore they carry obvious health risks. This will cause them to physically contaminate food, stock, equipment and surfaces they come in direct contact with. Due to their ability to transmit diseases to humans, they have caused losses of human life.
