WHY are these little fury critters considered pests?
There are a number of reasons WHY. Let’s take a quick look at two of these reasons WHY we should consider someone like cphservices.com.au to remove rodents from your property.
1. First and foremost RATS and MICE have the potential to transmit serious diseases to us humans. For example: Salmonella food poisoning, gastro-intestinal diseases, mild meningitis (virus carried by mice), tapeworm and infectious jaundice (bacteria). HOW do rats and mice transmit diseases? There are many ways for rodents to transmit disease and the following is a short list of the most common means; Contamination of food or utensils with their faeces, urine and even via pets to humans; for example, favus (skin disease) which is a fungus transmitted from mice to pets to humans!
2. Rodents can genuinely cause physical damage to your property – irrespective of it being a residential or commercial property (Rodents don’t discriminate). Rats and mice need to continually gnaw (that noise you sometimes hear in your wall cavities or in your roof) can be rodents gnawing. Put simply they must gnaw (chew) in order to prevent their incisor teeth from growing too long (they just keep on growing if they don’t). They may also gnaw to gain access to food containers and nesting sites.
Why is this a problem? Well the major concern with rodents continual chewing habits, is that it can be the cause of fires and electrical short circuits (as they eat through electrical cabling). This is turn can put peoples lives at risk and then there is also an obvious cost to repair damaged property.
