In Kent, pest control is a common problem and one that needs to be dealt with as soon as possible. Mice, rats, pigeons, cockroaches and bed bugs can all find their way into your business or home, causing damage and stress.
As soon as you spot the signs of pests, it’s important that you call a professional pest control company immediately to resolve the issue. Rats and mice in particular carry harmful viruses that can be transmitted to people. Many think pests only look for a place to nest in lofts, garages and basements, but the reality is they will make themselves at home in anywhere from your office to your favourite restaurant. Kent is not known for its sunny or tropical temperatures, much like the rest of the UK. That means pests are constantly looking for warmth and shelter from the rain, wind or snow. Once they’re in, they can multiply quickly, which is just one of the reasons you need to deal with infestations fast. Mice breed every three months and have approximately 12 offspring each time. In addition, mice start reproducing once they reach just two months old. This makes controlling an infestation of mice impossible without the help of a professional and means where there is one, there will soon be many more.
It’s not only your home that is at risk from pests, if you own a business in Kent, just the sight of a rat, mouse or cockroach can cause irreparable damage to your company and reputation. Investigations into the health and safety of your commercial premises can lead to closure, threatening your livelihood. So be sure to take proper precautions to prevent pests invading your workplace and ensure the matter is dealt with swiftly. It’s also important that you look out for signs of pests outside premises, too. Pigeons, rats and squirrels will all scavenge for food and waste you may have thrown away in areas such as bin stores or car parks. Avoid this by disposing of waste carefully and securely.
