The most prevalent agricultural pests include rodents, moles, birds and flies. They can indirectly cause a loss of revenue for the farmer, either by the reduction of crop yields, contamination of foodstuffs with disease causing bacteria and / or the increase of veterinary costs caused by the transmission of diseases. Rodents can also cause structural damage to buildings and electrical farm equipment and increase fire risks.
We provide professional, reliable and safe pest control services for the agricultural sector. This not only includes eradication of existing infestations, but also advice on hygiene legislation, housekeeping, storage, harbourage reduction and proofing to prevent re-infestations of pests.
Rats and mice
Rodent numbers in an agricultural setting can quickly reach enormous proportions, when an abundance of food and harbourage sites are available. Grain that has been tainted by rodents is unsuitable for human consumption.
Moles not only present a trip hazard for rudiments and horses but contamination of haylage with soil from mole hills makes it less palatable for livestock and increases the risk of disease (i.e. listeriosis).
An abundance of flies not only causes intense distress to lifestock, but they can carry an array of diseases. Maggots can cause myiasis in sheep (invasion of living tissue).
