Bonnington Plastics Release Advice On Their Pest Control Range
Rodent infestations pose a major problem over winter, as they move indoors to find food and warmth. With this in mind Bonnington Plastics have released advice based on their range of pest control products.
Nottingham (I-Newswire) January 14, 2013 - For both urban and rural households, winter brings with it a host of problems, one of which is the sudden influx of rodents and pests into homes. Food becomes increasingly scarce outside, and rodents seek cracks and entrances into human habitations to keep warm and fed over the colder months.
Rodent infestations are a genuine danger. Their droppings and urine carry disease, as do their bites if they become threatened. They eat unsecured food, passing on disease and rendering it useless. In addition to these risks they’re known to create fire hazards, chewing through electrical cables and leading to an eventual cost of repair. Because of this risk Bonnington Plastics have released advice to deal with rodents.
Traps should be put down around the borders of the room, where rats prefer to travel. They can be detected by the urine and droppings left around skirting boards. Spring-loaded traps will usually break their spine, though are sometimes considered to be messy. Glue traps starve them on a pad instead, though are considered by some to be inhumane. Cage traps are effective, though they require the rodent to then be killed.
A representative commented on the company’s advice, “Rodents are classified as vermin, particularly rats. It’s actually considered a legal offense to release vermin after catching them alive, which is an issue with finding non-lethal methods of pest control. Many purchase poison with their cage traps to avoid the issue, or start off with a lethal trap.”
Rodents can be deterred without contact. Powder placed along room borders identifies entry points, and leaving cat hair there stops rodents from using the entrance until it’s been secured, for instance with insulation foam. Leaving rodent bait in areas there may be a suspected infestation is an effective way of testing to see if any rodents remain, confirming any suspicions if the bait is taken.
Unlike rats, mice can often be released after capture, making bait and cage traps a popular option. They must be set free a good distance away, or their excellent sense of direction will lead them back to the nest in your home. Bear in mind they’re likely to die in the wild as a result of predation or exposure, so a quick poison or trap can sometimes be more humane.
