Rodents are smart and incredibly intelligent animals. They are cautious and curious in nature and often shy of new objects. They neither eat nor touch anything new for 4-6 days when enter into new territory. A Rodents incisors (4 front teeth) grow Continuously throughout life like Human nails. This constant growth enables rats to spend their lives gnawing on things without wearing their teeth down to the gum , But it also means that rats must use their teeth continually to rub on semi hard surfaces to keep them from growing too long .
Following activities shall be undertaken for effective rodent Control.
All the burrows in the near vicinity of buildings will be properly identified and close down after treating with fumigants. It has a gas effect and rodents will die in the ground itself. The basic principle is that the burrow should retain the gas for sufficient time to be lethal enough to kill all the rats and rodents present inside
We shall place in the periphery of all the buildings temper proof bait stations at strategic locations. These stations shall have poison baits which shall be checked fortnightly. Location of these bait stations is such that the possibility of rodents getting trapped by these is maximum. Rodents will consume these baits and die outside.
Internal Rodent Trap stations shall be strategically placed within buildings at various locations adjacent to walls. These stations will have Non-toxic glue pads inside. If some rodent find entry in building will get caught in this. Glue Pads would be replaced fortnightly or when rodents are get trapped.
Any type of opening in any establishments provide the most favorable conditions for rats to hide, freely move from one place to another and also for breeding purpose because of undisturbed conditions. The migration of rodents from infested areas to non-infested takes due to these conditions. Thus it is very important to keeping the entry points shut with the help of fixing automatic door closure device. This helps to prevent entry of new rodents entering into the premises. We shall keep inspecting the site closely to identify the places where rodents may seek entry such as any holes in walls, broken drain caps, space beneath external doors, open cable ducts etc. All such place observed shall be intimated to you and plugged by you to further reduce possibility of infestation.
