Construction, refurbishment and demolition at local, regional or nationwide levels can bring all inherent pest control problems.
Rats and mice
Rats and micegnawing through the insulation on electrical cables not only causes damage, it may also result in fires. Similarly, puncturing water pipes can lead to flooding, or in extreme cases, explosions, when gas pipes are damaged.
The acidic droppings of pigeons harbour insects which can cause an infestation. Additionally, their droppings may block drains and guttering, and damage stonework.
Gulls bring with them a riot of noise and aggressive behaviour during their nesting season of March to September, which can prove a menace to humans. Their roof-top nesting behaviour can lead to increased maintenance and cleaning costs, especially when nests are sited near ventilation and plant machinery.
The UK’s resident starling population increases each year during the Autumn months with migrants arriving from the Continent. Attracted to urban conurbations, the Starlings roost on buildings and available ledges across the skyline, corroding stonework and turning pavements into treacherous surfaces.
Pallets and Packaging
Inferior construction packaging materials from exporting countries can harbour pests within construction materials, which may have far-reaching consequences for the countryside and urban areas.
