What Pests Are Found On Farms?
Pests are found anywhere and everywhere these days. So it’s no surprise that you can find pests on farms, and that farms are actually one of the most vulnerable places for an infestation.
Here are the reasons why farms are so at risk from pests…
– Pests love manure, particularly flies. Flies can cause problems for farm animals like horses. Some flies like to bite, which spreads diseases amongst the animals. On a farm, this is even more dangerous because of the diseases spreading easily. Farmers often tend to use or sell the manure to help fertilise crops and plants, containing the infestation and not allowing the flies near the animals.
– Pests have been known to destroy crops in a very serious way. This has affected the food across the UK in the past. Not only can it affect the country’s food supply, but it also has a huge impact on the farmers’ profits. Routine inspections to look for the signs of pests prevents this from happening.
– Larger pests like foxes, tend to attack small farm animals. It’s hard to keep larger pests off farms, as they’re normally in the countryside and roam over large areas. Large pests are incredibly hard to handle without the help of a professional pest controller. If you suspect you have a large pest problem, get in touch with us for advice, support and treatment of the issue.
Pests can pose many more risks to a farm. Just one pest infestation can affect a farmer’s livelihood for many years, which in turn affects their lifestyle. This is why it’s so important to have a professional pest control contract in place to help you with any pest problems. Implementing a solid pest prevention routine could save you a lot of money and stress in the future.
