Rats and mice are the largest of the pests you will probably experience in commercial, warehouse, factory or office facilities and are generally the ones that do the most damage. For example: the world loses 10% of its foodstuffs through the activities of rats and mice.
Because their large incisor teeth constantly grow, there is a need to keep them at a manageable length, so they must constantly chew on hard materials such as wood, concrete, electrical wiring, water pipes, computer cables, fabrics etc, to stay alive.
The consequence of this constant gnawing can cause water pipes to leak, electrical short circuits, computer failures and damage to packaging especially packaged food.
Rat or mouse activity in food storage, commercial storage or canteen/tearoom areas inevitably leads to contamination by way of constant urination or by way of excreta as they transverse over varying surfaces. In addition to the damage rodents cause to storage they are also responsible for food-borne diseases such as salmonella.
An effective Rodent control program is essential to protect you company's reputation and to prevent stock from being ruined due to damage and contamination. Regular management is required if you have a site that is susceptible to rodent attack.
