MICE MANAGEMENT           Seasonal

Mice are known to spread disease in their search of food and shelter. This poses great health risks particularly in kitchens or the catering / food industry, as they contaminate food, and leave droppings behind. The natural and constant gnawing habit of mice means they can also cause damage to your property, furnishings and equipment.

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR:
Droppings – often in cupboards under sinks and along walls.
Smudges – mice fur brushing against walls & cornices can leave dark smears.
Urine Pillars – heavily infested areas will show urine build-ups of up to 4cm high.
Nesting – mice use shred able materials to nest.

REPRODUCTIVE RATE:
80 MICE vs 1 HUMAN (per year)

 

RATS           Seasonal

Rats are associated with at least a dozen diseases and can cause numerous long and short term health hazards like
Murine typhus, salmonellosis, ratbite fever etc.

Rats colonize rapidly and can cause severe damage to your building, as they chew through the floor joist and wall, and can cause fires by chewing on electric cables.

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR:
Droppings – resemble a large grain of rice.
Scratching noises – specifically at night.
Nests – build nests in warm hidden places using shredded materials.

REPRODUCTIVE RATE:
144 RATS vs 1 HUMAN (per year)
