It is imperative to keep your living and working space rodent-free for a variety of reasons. Not only do rats bring disease but they can cause havoc all round in offices, homes, factories, shops and restaurants, to name a few examples of where they breed and live.
The best way to tackle your rodent control is by finding a rodent control specialist near you, instead of trying to eradicate this problem on your own.
Therefore, when it comes to rat infestations we are dealing with a problem that is far more than just annoying.
Did you know that rats can eat as much as ten to 15% of their body weight every day in food? Additionally, rats need to feed between 15 and 25 times every day.
Rats are able to live to the age of two – brown rats will eat absolutely anything, often leaving their food strewn on surfaces and urinating on the food to mark their territory! Not a very appetising thought, whereas black rats, on the other hand, are a little fussier and choose what they will and will not eat.
Rats chew electricals and increase the risk of electrical challenges and fires, costing thousands.
Because rats have a nasty habit of defecating and urinating numerous times every day, this could cause disease and attract other rodents.
Even though rats are less fussy when it comes to what they eat, they can still cause untold problems and can ruin the eaves of roofs.
Rats can damage both the inside and the outside of roofing. Because black rats prefer chewing on roof leaves, these often create holes that permit other rodents and even rain to get inside your home.
Hungry rats that don’t live inside will venture outside and start eating vegetation, resulting in ruined gardens.
Find a rodent control specialist near you to get to the root of the problem and eradicate it entirely.
Peace of mind is what we all strive towards, particularly when it comes to keeping the bugs at bay in our place of work, play and where we sleep and eat.
It is never a pleasant thought that a four, six or eight-legged creature will make its presence known at the most unexpected of times – such as a cockroach appearing when you are having a meal. Nothing could be more off-putting.
Purge your environment by using pest control specialists near you to rid yourself of the problem forever.
Bugs of every description, rodents and more carry disease, cause havoc and are unpleasant to have around in any shape or form.
Using a can of Doom or putting down rat pellets might seem like the right thing to do – but the pressing question here is – will it work and for how long. Something else you will need to consider is whether you have children, pets and birds, and the safety of using home methods to eradicate your environment of creepy crawlies.
Are you tired of waking up in the morning, only to find that your entire kitchen is covered in ants? These pesky little creatures can make your life a misery once they make nests and take over your entire home or office; they are resilient and extremely difficult to get rid of. This is definitely a job for the experts.
Find a pest control specialist near you to ensure you are able to keep both little and big creatures at bay. We live in Africa where it is either hot or dry or wet – the ideal breeding ground for all types of creatures.
Although it is important to respect nature, there are limits when it comes to our health and that of our families.
A can of insecticide simply won’t get to the root of the problem where infestations could become extremely problematic, especially if you are in the food and hospitality industry.
Here are six real reasons why the expertise of a pest control company is necessary:
- Rodents and pests carry multitude diseases and can easily infest even the cleanest of kitchens, causing harm to pets and humans.
- Getting rid of pests will ensure safe and clean environments – rodents can leave faeces on or near food, and other vermin and pests can carry a wide range of bacteria and viruses, infecting food and contaminating the surfaces that they come into contact with, which is a massive problem and can cause health issues.
- The sighting of pests in restaurants and eateries are off-putting and can result in complaints as well as loss of business.
- Some pests are the direct cause of or aggravation of existing medical conditions such as asthma and other lung-related health challenges.
- Did you know that rats and mice are often responsible for extensive damage to property? Let a professional pest control company assist with eliminating this problem.
- Rodents carry the Hantavirus as well as Tularaemia, Salmonella and even Bubonic Plague!! Because they gather fleas and other microscopic organisms, these can prove to be extremely harmful to one’s health.
Whether you have a wasp, bee, mouse, cockroach, ant, spider, bat or other infestations, we are well-versed in getting right to the root of the problem.
Bear in mind that controlling bugs and pests is essential to keep your family safe and sound at all times. In a hot climate it takes only one or two pests to start an entire colony and before you know it, you, your office, premises or garden will be subjected to an invasion of unwanted visitors.
The elderly, children and pets need the most protection from stings and bites. Furthermore, individuals that suffer serious health conditions such as those with cardiovascular disease or are prone to allergies, need to be cautious regarding summer bites and stings.
The most dangerous exposure is neurotoxic which attacks the central nervous system. When the victim is bitten, the victim will experience numerous symptoms which could include:
- Swelling of the lymph nodes.
- Muscular pain and cramping, especially in the chest, thighs, back and abdomen.
- As the symptoms progress, there will be a distinct weakness experienced in the legs and an increase in pulse rate and weakness in the legs.
When this happens it might be a good idea to take the patient to the emergency rooms right away.
The most notorious neurotoxic creature is the Black Widow Spider, often found in dark corners, under windowsills, in woodpiles, in outside toilets, and has a venom that can kill a small child.
Tackle pest problems right away to avoid nasty outcomes, especially as the weather starts warming up.
The brown widow is a lot less venomous and smaller in size and is found behind drain pipes, under garden furniture and post boxes.
Baboon spiders can also administer a nasty bite, and although not fatal, the bite can cause dizziness, weakness and vomiting.
During the months of March through to October, scorpions can be found in certain localities – bear in mind, they will come inside if doors and windows are left open.
Localised damage is caused by a bite that is cytotoxic such as bites from Violin and Sac Spiders.
Other pests to avoid are ticks, mosquitos and bees.
In many instances, it is best to leave well alone and not to antagonise spiders and bees, but if you are experiencing an influx of critters, tackle your pest problems this summer by calling in the experts.
