For rodents outside we primarily use mouse or rat traps as these do not pose a risk to non-target animals such as voles and shrews and also ensures that rodenticides do not enter the food chain. If we need to use baits then all of these will be removed once we have cleared the problem and the amount removed is recorded and disposed of via a specialist pest control waste disposal company. We record on a COSHH form all materials used and this form is left on site but also saved digitally for easy access from any computer.
We believe we are very successful with our green credentials at limiting the use of paper and do not use aerosols that contain CFCs. We are very organised at recycling all packaging, electronic fly unit tubes, strip lights and paper that is used. We provide various types of eco vehicles to the staff that need them and two of our technicians solely use public transport. For effectiveness we need to use the most efficient pest control products but this generally means that less of the product is required. If we have an option then environmental sustainability questions are raised about the product before price.
