Hygiene problems and the damage caused by pests are our key concerns. Rodents carry diseases that can be transmitted to man (around forty) including some that can be fatal.
In 2008, the WHO estimated that rodents consume and soil from 5 to 15% of world cereal resources. This represents an annual loss of 20 million tonnes of cereals. They are also responsible for much damage in homes, professional buildings and warehouses. It is estimated that one fire out of four is linked to short circuits generated by an electrical network that has been damaged by rodents.
Our society is faced with a crucial challenge - a world population of 3 billion people in 1960,
6 billion in 2000, and an estimated 9 billion for 2050. We must protect not only people but also food production. This is all the more important since everything in the rodents' environment contributes to their expansion - an abundance of food, developing vegetation and shelter, ageing sewers and infrastructures, continued growth of world freight, burgeoning suburbs...
An adapted pest control programme is one of the keys to preserving the environment.
