Viking Pest Control have signed up support the Campaign for Responsible Rodenticides Use code of best practice in the UK under the banner Think Wildlife. The CRRU promotes best practice and responsible rodent control, thereby protecting wildlife from rodenticide exposure.
In the UK results gained from the Predatory Birds Monitoring Scheme have shown that approximately 84% of Barn Owl’s 94% of Red Kites and up to 100% of Kestrel’s have low level residues of Second Generation Anticoagulant Rodenticies (SGAR’s) in their bodies and this is why risk mitigation is essential for pest controllers.
The CRUU sets out best practice guidance for pest controllers and landowners to mitigate the risks to wildlife associated with pest control. The guidance offers advice on rodent control strategy and sets out the primary steps which should be taken before placing SGAR’s. In addition to this the CRUU also sets out steps for post treatment using SGAR’s and how to avoid future infestations.
“Signing up to support this accord with CRRU really puts wildlife at the heart of what we do and this is important not just for me but for future generations who should be able to go out to enjoy our UK wildlife and continue to see healthy populations of our impressive predatory bird species”.
If you are in any doubt about the methods used by pest controllers a copy of the CRRU code of practice can be obtained by following the link to the Think Wildlife website here www.thinkwildlife.org/about-crru-uk/
