In the treatment of rodents, it is advisable to avoid, as far as possible, the use of biocides as recommended by the UNE 171210 standard, of good practices in disinfection, disinfection and deratification plans. This requires extensive experience in the target species and knowledge of European regulations.

Characteristics of the pest:

There are three rodents that we usually treat as urban pests:

  • number one feature of the urban pest
    The Gray or sewer rat (Rattus norvegicus):

    The gray rat has a robust appearance and a weight of between 200-500 g. Adults have a gray-brown coloration in the dorsal part and gray-whitish in the ventral part. In older individuals, the dorsal part becomes reddish. This rat, unlike the black rat (rattus rattus), has excavating habits, so outside, the common rat prefers to nest by making nests in the ground, along embankments (rivers, railways, etc.). rune, under concrete slabs or plates, etc.

    The nests have at least one “emergency” entrance and one exit exit, which is normally hidden in grass, rubble, etc. As they are social animals, it is common to find different nests in a specific area.

    SANITARY PROBLEMS

    The gray rat is a vector of various infectious organisms, which, if transmitted to humans or to populations of domestic animals, can cause various diseases (hantaviruses, toxoplasmosis, salmonellosis, etc.)

  • Brown rat (Rattus Rattus):

    The brown rat has a more graceful appearance than the gray rat, with an elongated body and a weight of between 135-240 g. Adults have a variable coloration: the dorsal region can have a strong gray color almost black to reddish gray, and the ventral region a more or less light gray color with yellowish tones.

    In order for this rat to pass into the buildings, it needs openings; at least 12 mm. Inside, the black rat will prefer to nest in the upper parts of the structures (attics, holes in roofs and walls, in beams of the building, etc.), but we can also find it in the lower parts of buildings, as well as in Occasionally, in underground areas and sewers.

    SANITARY PROBLEMS

    The brown rat; like the rest of rodents, they are vectors of innumerable infectious organisms. The black rat is a vector of various infectious organisms, which, if transmitted to humans or populations of domestic animals, can cause various diseases (hantaviruses, toxoplasmosis, salmonellosis, etc.).

  • Common Mouse (Mus musculus):

    The house mouse is the most common rodent in the interior of the houses and one of the most numerous in the old quarters of the cities along with the gray rat. It is a rodent of small size and graceful appearance, weighing between 12,5 and 29 grams.

    Mice tend to nest inside buildings; they can go through openings greater than 6 mm. They prefer to nest in dark, quiet and solitary places where they have enough food and materials to make the nest (clothing, cardboard and paper, cotton, insulating construction materials, etc.) and are not disturbed.

    In optimal conditions, mice will not move more than 1,2 to 1,5 meters from the nest and normally do not go beyond 15 meters. They are very curious and are continually exploring.

    SANITARY PROBLEMS

    The common mouse does not generate a health problem as important as that of other rodents such as the common rat (rattus norvegicus) or the black rat (rattus rattus); However, like the rest of rodents, they are vectors of various infectious organisms, which, if transmitted to humans or populations of domestic animals, can cause various diseases (hantaviruses, toxoplasmosis, salmonellosis, etc.).

  • feature number four of the urban plague
    Field Mouse (Apodemus sylvaticus):

    The field mouse is a small rodent in the family Muridae. They are generally brownish or greyish brown in color, about 80-100mm (including the tail) in adulthood. They are preferably nocturnal and eat almost everything, although their main diet is based on fruits, berries and small invertebrates (their diet could be considered omnivorous). Their average life is between 18-24 months and throughout the year they tend to have 2 litters, although if the conditions are favorable they may be more (depending on the availability of food).

    In Spain it can be found in multiple settings since it is one of the most abundant mammals. It can be found from sea level to 2000-2500 meters (Pyrenees). As a pest that affects homes, it is often found in single-family houses with gardens or close to wooded areas.

    SANITARY PROBLEMS

    Field mice do not generate a health problem as important as that of other rodents such as the common rat (rattus norvegicus) or the black rat (rattus rattus); However, like the rest of rodents, they are vectors of various infectious organisms, which, if transmitted to humans or populations of domestic animals, can cause various diseases (hantaviruses, toxoplasmosis, salmonellosis, etc.).
