Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use (CRRU)

The Purpose of CRRU

The rodenticide industry, as a whole, has recognised the need to address the concerns surrounding the responsible use of rodenticides and the need to ensure that rodenticides are used correctly and in ways that will minimise the exposure to wildlife.

The industry has therefore initiated the Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use (CRRU).

Key to the campaign is a code of good practice for the responsible use of rodenticides in rural areas.  Hinton Pest Control Limited is a CRRU Supporter.

Fly Management

Since April 2006, local authorities respond to fly complaints under The Clean Neighbourhood and Environment Act 2005.  This enables investigations of relevant premises and can be judged if these flies are “being prejudicial to health or a nuisance”.  It can be difficult for local environmental health offices to identify the precise source of flies.

Fly control on farms is best achieved using an integrated programme involving, not only use of insecticides but also adult fly monitoring, good hygiene and manure management.

Within our contracts, Hinton Pest Control Limited can offer not only advice, use of insecticides but also servicing of electronic fly killers (EFK).  Servicing will only take place if safe to do so – any unsafe units will be noted in the report.

A full service includes:

  • Check HT output
  • Empty catch tray
  • Fit new UVL tubes
  • Deep clean
  • Fit new starter(s)
  • Re-assemble and test unit
  • Affix date service label
  • Exchange glue board (glue board units only)

A partial service includes:

  • Check HT output
  • Brush clean grid
  • Empty catch tray
  • Affix date service label
  • Exchange glue board (glue board units only)

No guarantee can be given for the life of the UVL tubes or starters.
