New Years Pest Issues 


Over the winter holiday months, a lot of people take time of work to spend time with family. These people include public service workers like bin collectors, bus drivers and others. These type of people provide services all year round but often if they take a few days off, it can result in a backlog of work.


Bin men are the ones who take this up especially over christmas as over christmas they will have to deal with all the christmas rubbish that is left and piled up. but when this happens it will start to attract rats and mice. This will then result in you needing a rodent control company in January.


Over the christmas period, if you leave your rubbish to pile up or you have missed just one bin man collection your waste could pile up very quickly. This would mean that you have to take your rubbish to a local tip to dispose it personally.


Pests in your bins


If you leave your rubbish bags out over night, they will be left there for rodents to come and break into for food. They will rip the bags open and leave all the rubbish everywhere. Rodents are one of the worst for this problem but they aren't the only pest that will scavenge into your bin bags. Foxes also have a common reputation for being “urban pests”.  But rats and mice are the pests you need to mainly look out for as they breed a lot.  Your garden could soon be a home to hundreds of rats making you have a desperate need of pest control.
