National restaurant a food retail chains are turning to SUPEPROOF to provide them with rodent proofing protection that is transforming their sites pest control performance. The London-based proofing specialist has won significant contracts with national chains during 2018 as facilities and property managers see the benefit of preventing rodent infestations over simply supressing them.
A couple spent over £30,000 on house renovations to try to get rid of mice and had been considering moving home before SUPERPROOF solved a mouse problem that had lasted nearly two decades. Mick and Janet Eden had been experiencing mouse infestations in their three-bed terraced home in South London since the early 2000s.
Restaurants and food outlets that tolerate mice activity in their premises have been sent a warning by scientists – the rodents might kill their customers.
Research has shown that common house mice carry potentially fatal diseases that are resistant to antibiotics and could be passed on to humans. A SUPERPROOF expert said that this should be of particular concern for food businesses which should be setting the highest hygiene standards to protect customers.
Nick Heal and Jessica Vaughan found out the hard way that trying to get rid of mice in their home with poisons does not work – now they’re urging others not to make the same mistake. The couple suffered a mouse infestation in their maisonette in South London for six months – and like many home owners first took a conventional route in trying to remove the mice. Their rodent problem was only solved when they turned to SUPERPROOF for a comprehensive programme of mouse proofing.
American first-time parents wanted just one thing when mice appeared in their home at the same time as their new-born baby – a method to achieve permanent mice removal. They were worried about mice poison and mouse traps. So what should they do?
You’d think it would be an unequal contest – Man vs Mouse – but mice removal is not so easy. They might be weigh in at less than 30g, are all but blind, and notoriously shy (most of the time), but try to get rid of mice, and they can dig in their tiny heels.
People who want to get rid of mice can now buy a range of ultrasonic mouse repellent devices and electronic mice repellent equipment, as well as mice repellent sprays, which claim to deter and get rid of mice. But do any of these mice repellent products work? What is the evidence that they have any effect on mice infestations in homes? And are they worth the money, given that some can cost up to £50?
They have been known to make a grown man cry, and both men and women to abandon their homes. They make otherwise sensible and peace-loving people lash out with extreme violence, and fill others with shame, fearing neighbours and friends will hate them for ever. Yes, the humble house mouse has a lot of answer for.
Veganuary is drawing to an end with more than 160,000 people in the UK having pledged to go vegan for January. There may be meat, fish and dairy eaters who still scoff at veganism. But many others who have a growing awareness of, and respect for, the principled stand vegans take. And the huge rise in the number of people becoming vegan, and celebrity chefs creating vegan dishes, and restaurants offering vegan food, cannot be ignored.
Christmas is the time to be jolly, and to be worried about mice in the house. There is a widespread belief that mouse control problems get worse in winter because the mice come in from the cold. That idea, that mice move in to shelter in our homes when it gets colder, is a myth. The reason? The rodent that lives in our home is House Mouse. It has evolved to live with us humans.
