With the Beast from The East and Storm Emma upon us, also think about the Beasts Within!
When the weather turns to temperatures like we are currently experiencing, it will drive rodents into buildings such as sheds, factories, schools, workshops, houses and garages. You name it and they will find a way in.
This week is ‘Pest Awareness Week’ and it was reported by the British Pest Control Authority (BPCA) that the insurance sector has estimated rodent damage to wiring is responsible for 25% of all electrical fires in buildings.
If this is not a big enough concern on its own, think about the opportunity you will give them to share your food stocks, probably without you even noticing it.
Make sure you check for all entry points, broken drain covers, poorly maintained brickwork and get the maintenance completed.
When the thaw arrives over the next few days we will be inundated with a surge of calls and the Abate team will be ready with all hands-on deck.
For Health & Safety reasons for all Abate staff, they have been told to stay at home for the third day running, but will be ready when needed?
