Rodent Control In Sewers

 
Price: £23  

This report assesses the extent of rats in sewers in UK, and the effectiveness of current eradication procedures being used by the water utilities. An examination of design, construction and maintenance of sewers, together with likely future changes in sewer systems is made with a view to minimising rodent presence, minimising damage and assisting control. The study utilises results from a study of sewer rate behaviour in an experimental sewer rig, and sewer baiting trials to support the findings. Cost effective service indicators are proposed to control rat populations in sewers to acceptable levels.
