The pests I have dealt with are many and varied but recent examples have included:
Rats – a massive problems in all areas, not just the West End. The way we live, the rubbish that is a welcome food source to rats, all contribute to their numbers swelling. Prolific breeders, their numbers can swell within weeks! But, as well as being a nuisance they also carry a bacteria that when humans come into contact with it, can make us very ill.
Pigeons – they can cause a huge amount of damage to buildings when the roost and nest. Rather than having expensive repair bills on a regular basis, why not invest in bird proofing equipment instead? These methods effectively and humanely stop birds from roosting on buildings.
Insect infestations – more common than you think, many people find that they homes are under attack from small, tiny, almost-too-small-to-see insects! These pesky little creatures find their way into our homes in a variety of ways – on our pets, our clothes, bags or simply blown in through an open window. Either way, our warm, well-insulated homes provide a perfect place for them to multiply and live.
What is a pest?
A pest is often defined as ‘a plant or animal that is detrimental to humans or our concerns, such as crops and livestock’. Pests can also cause nuisance and carry disease. All animals, birds, rodents and insects can become a pest when they become invasive, detrimental, troublesome and destructive or a nuisance. Many people use the term pest alongside the term vermin.
In some cases, some of these animals can be beneficial – for example, as part of the food chain – but in other situations and settings, they can be a nuisance, therefore a pest.
