The south west is home to many popular towns and cities including Gloucester, Oxford, Cheltenham and Swindon. Each area has plenty to offer in the form of restaurants, bars, cathedrals, boat trips, horse racing and more. With so much going on, rodents are unfortunately some of the lesser desired visitors to these areas.
Why pests can be such a problem in the south west
The south west has the perfect combination of old buildings, food supplies and lots of countryside. All these factors make it the ideal location for rodents to thrive.
• Old buildings don’t tend to be as well insulated which makes it easier for rats and mice to chew their way inside. Cracks forming in walls over the years and the foundations of buildings weakening also make entry into homes and buildings much more straightforward.
• The south west is a popular place to live and areas such as Oxford and Cheltenham attract thousands of additional visitors every week. With amenities such as pubs, restaurants, cafes and hotels on every street corner, it means that there are plenty of food sources for hungry rodents. If there’s one thing you can guarantee will lure rodents in, it’s the promise of an easy meal.
• Although far more remote than a busy town or city, the countryside also makes a nice comfortable home for rodents. With trees and shrubs aplenty, there are many places for them to seek cover. Field mice will also happily eat seeds, nuts, berries, vegetation and small insects so there’s plenty of food available. The big problem with rodents in the countryside is that they’re more exposed to the elements so they’re likely to work even harder to make their way into homes and buildings.
