The rise of rats during the COVID-19 lockdown


At a time when governments around the world are implementing a shutdown of non-critical services to reduce the spread of the coronavirus and protect the population, rats are taking the opportunity to move into the perfect habitats that empty buildings provide.

As operations for a range of business sectors are currently on pause, it’s critical that you ensure your premises are safeguarded in preparation for when normal operations resume and keep unnecessary visits to hospitals to a minimum.

I joined the Marketing and Innovation team at Rentokil in 2015, and my mind has quickly become accustomed to the weird and wonderful world of pests. Outside of work my main hobby is music, being a huge fan of bands such as Queen and Led Zeppelin as well as being an avid drummer.
