Rodents breed at an accelerated speed. As a yardstick it is estimated that if two mice were left in a building with a food source for twelve months their population would grow to over 2000.
With many insurance companies no longer insuring against rodent damage, it is important that this pest is excluded from premises with the latest rodent control techniques before they cause damage. And it needs expert parties and modern techniques. Experts take time to identify the type of rodents your place has and then they take necessary actions.
Rodents prominent incisor teeth grow continuously. ‘Rodent’ is derived from the Latin ‘rodere’ which means ‘to gnaw’. Gnawing is a natural and necessary survival behaviour of the rat and mouse. Rats and mice enjoy gnawing wires – a potential cause of fires in houses.
Rodents contaminate our environment with their urine and droppings and by spreading disease. Rodents are known to be vectors of over fifty disease organisms including the causes of plague, leptospirosis, murine typhus and food poisoning.
An adult house mouse produces 50 to 100 droppings and up to 3,000 micro-droplets of urine per day, a rat about 40 to 50 droppings per day or 15,000 droppings and 15 litres of urine per year.
Rodents may die in inaccessible places such as wall cavities. Odours from dead mice are seldom a problem but rats, because of their larger body weight may cause a problem. Your Pest Manager may be able to find and remove the carcass or apply odour absorbing products.
