The Problem - Rats and Mice

Rodents, especially mice and rats, are exceptionally adaptable animals and are able to quickly adjust to their environment. This is why you can find rodents practically in all corners of the globe. However, the rash expansion of rodent populations is not solely based on their adaptability. These animals are also extremely fertile.

Their diet is quite varied and includes a broad range of plant and animal food stuffs as well as waste and refuse. Mice and rats destroy a large portion of the world’s food reserves by either directly consuming the stored food stuffs or by fouling them with their excrements and germs.

Rodents cause serious material damage – they gnaw on cables and wires, packaging and other materials as well as contaminate raw materials. Gnawing on cables can lead to shortcircuits in electrical plants and interruptions of entire production procedures. Such interruptions represent immense economic damage.

In addition these animals are essential in communicating a range of grave diseases: the plague, Weil’s disease, Lyme borreliosis, typhoid fever, foot and-mouth disease and rabies are just a few examples of the diseases that can be caused by the causative organisms excreted or transmitted by rodents. From that point of view, an effective and intransigent vermin control is indispensable.
