Flooding creates many problems and brings with it a host of health and pest-related risks.
Rodents that are displaced from their natural habitat are forced to seek alternative foodsources and shelter.
Flood damaged properties provide an easily accessible and attractive harbourage for rodents who can cause damage by gnawing and spread disease through their faeces and urine. The bacterium responsible for leptospirosis that is typically found in Rat urine may be introduced into floodwater thus increasing the possibilities of infection. Other diseases that are spread by rodents include E.coli and salmonella.
Standing water,waste and sewage that remain after the flood water subsides provide an ideal breeding environment for mosquitoes and flies which can be responsible for further risks to human health.
If you have any pest related problems due to flooding, it is advisable to contact a professional pest management company such as Cavalry Pest Solutions.
Always ask if the company is a member of a trade organisation such as The NPTA (National Pest Technicians Association) and if their Pest Control Officers are members of a registered scheme such as The BASIS-PROMPT Professional register for Pest Controllers.
Cavalry Pest Solutions can also offer specialist cleaning and sanitisation services following a flood, making sure that the bacteria and viruses that are left behind are dealt with promptly, efficiently and safely.
At 2 am GMT on the last Sunday in October, clocks move back by one hour for the end of British Summer Time and as the nights start drawing in and winters approach starts to bring a drop in temperatures,many of you will discover the rodent problem that you didn’t know you had!
Summer may have been a total washout in some respects but Rat numbers have been on the rise thanks to favourable conditions such as moderate temperatures from early spring and plentiful food sources.
During the summer months, Rodent colonies can increase in size almost right under our feet, taking advantage of cover provided by summer foliage but it’s the seasonal drop in temperatures that force rodent populations to seek shelter and warmth, leading to infestations that seem to have appeared overnight!
The economic situation has influenced rodent population increases as well and there has been a rise in DIY rodent treatments which in most cases only serves to make the problem worse.
If you have Rat or Mice problems, obtain the services of a professional Pest Control Company such as Cavalry Pest Solutions. Experience, knowledge and an understanding of rodent biology and behaviour is essential in getting to the root of these types of infestations and dealing with them effectively.
