Homeowners in Sydney are urged to make sure that their homes as well as their businesses have been rodent-proof. For the past century, rodents are considered to be pests to humans and many are scared of them. Businesses have cropped up against their furry creatures. There are products and pest control in Sydney developed to put an end to their population. The plague has also been pinpointed to be brought by these vermin.
It has been a part of human lives despite the endless effort to exterminate them. They continue to survive and they are currently thriving in Cape Breton.
In a statistics that was recently published by Orkin Canada, Sydney was found out to be the community with the least rat problem compared to other communities located within Atlantic Canada. The data is based on the amount of calls that the rat exterminator company receives.
After the claim was released into the public, rats became the focus of many discussions. It even started a little controversy because many believe that there is no accurate method which can be used in order to determine the exact number of rats that are living in a certain community.
According to the owner of a pest control based in Sydney, Stephen McLaughlin, in his business they have been dealing with the rodents for approximately four decades. In terms of rat extermination, the last several years has been a record for his business because of how busy they are.
McLaughlin said that their schedules are always full because homeowners are calling to hire their services claiming that they have seen a rat in their property. They are having a hard time keeping up because it is not only dominant in Sydney but in Cape Breton as well.
He found out while in the business that people are more wary towards rat compared to mouse because of the difference in size and how scary looking they are.
The owner of the pest control in Sydney said that prevention is essential to avoid rats from nesting in your property. Make sure to use bait traps, poison and other traps that could prevent them from entering your property.
