PGM & SON; The Breeding Cycle of Rats, Mice, Cockroaches & Flies

Pests – what’s in a number? Pests can breed rapidly, some more than others.

It’s important to address a pest problem before it gets out of control. It doesn’t take long for pests to thrive in the right conditions and to cause a significant infestation and very large problem which can be much harder and take much longer to deal with.

This week we look at the average breeding cycle of some common pests we encounter across Herefordshire and how a small pest problem can very soon spiral out of control.

At PGM & Son Pest Control Hereford, we have seen a significant rise in rodent problems over the last few months almost certainly worsened by the fact businesses have been forced to close their doors for months on end.

Let’s take a look at the breeding cycle of rats, mice, cockroaches and flies.

Having the foresight to pest proof your home or business can have significant benefits. It is a preventative measure, designed to save on costs and reputational damage that could come in the future if steps aren’t taken.

Commercial property owners, facilities managers and particularly anyone responsible for hygiene compliance in a hospitality business need to know how to pest-proof their properties, in order to reduce the likelihood of unwanted visitors making a new home.
