Buildings left vacant during a lockdown can become a haven for pests. They can take advantage of the absence of human disturbance and unmaintained buildings to gain entry through weak points in the building. Once inside, they can find harbourage in many places within the building fabric, causing damage as they spread around the property and contaminate surfaces with dirt and droppings.
Many types of pest are a threat to buildings, including rodents, flying and crawling insects, birds, squirrels, rabbits and other mammals. Rodents, especially, can cause significant gnawing damage to the building structure and equipment, such as electrical cables and fibre optic equipment. Rodents, birds, flies and cockroaches all pose a serious threat to health from the diseases and ectoparasites that they carry.
