Why it is better to contact the rodent extermination service

To eliminate pests, specialists of Pest Control Walthamstow use dangerous substances – rodenticides. As a general rule, chemicals are prohibited from being issued to persons without professional training in the handling of toxic substances. If the funds are used improperly, there is a high risk of getting toxic poisoning. The most common victims of chemicals are dogs and cats that prey on rodents or eat the bait. It is not easy for doctors to make a diagnosis, because signs of poisoning may not appear immediately. In this case, an antidote is required to treat the disease.

The problem of using rodenticides

 The difficulty with using chemicals lies in their toxicity. Substances are laid out, applied to surfaces in hard-to-reach places for people and pets.
