Warehouses: Susceptible to harboring unwanted guests

 

The Norway rat, roof rat, and house mouse are destructive rodent pests in and around farm facilities. This can be especially true during the winter months, as they seek food and refuge indoors. Rats and mice consume and contaminate food, gnaw on structural, mechanical, and electrical components, and weaken concrete slabs and walkways with their burrowing activities. They can also potentially carry diseases such as bubonic plague, leptospirosis, rabies, and bacterial food poisoning.

Usually, the first signs of rodent infestation are droppings or urine stains in and around buildings, because rats and mice are most active at night. If rodents are seen repeatedly during the day, it is an indication of an established population. It is estimated that for every rodent seen during the day around barns and poultry houses, there are likely 20 to 50 that are unseen.

Effective rodent control involves a three-step process. The first step is to “rodent-proof” the structure. This is very difficult because rats and mice can squeeze through holes just large enough to pass their heads through, as small as ¼ for mice and ½ inch for rats. They can climb through pipes; jump vertically three feet, horizontally four feet, and climb wires, cables, vines, and trees to enter a building.

Rats and mice have long been a problem on farms where food and nesting sites are plentiful. They are carriers of some 45 diseases and are capable of contaminating farm feed and water supplies helping to spread disease from contaminated to uncontaminated areas and from animal to animal. Many of these diseases are harmful to livestock and humans.

 

Evidence for pest menace,

SLO Food Bank: Health inspectors found rodent droppings at the warehouse

By KSBY | Dec 05, 2017

The Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County released more information Monday related to the unsanitary conditions health inspectors say were found at the organization’s warehouse last month.

Food Bank CEO Kevin Drabinski says after staff failed to renew its processed food registration license at its new San Luis Obispo warehouse, state health inspectors came out November 27 to check out the facility.

It was at that time Drabinski says evidence of rodent droppings were discovered at various locations throughout the warehouse. The food bank was then told no products could be moved in or out of the facility until further notice.

Poor storage eats up 48k tonne grain

TNN | Oct 26, 2015

PUNE: If only thousands of tonnes of food grain was stored properly in warehouses across India in the last three-and-a-half years, the country would not have run into such a severe shortage spiraling into a price rise in the essentials this year.

Country-wide data from the ministry of consumer affairs, food, and public distribution showed that of the total grain production in India, close to 48,900 tonnes was damaged in storage. Stocks usually come to the godowns after the Kharif or rabi seasons.

Experts said if India had not lost grain in this manner, more than sufficient quantity would have now been available to meet the consumption demand in the country.

Pest attacks, leakages in godowns, procurement of poor quality stocks, exposure to rains, floods and negligence cause losses.

RodrepelTM is a low-toxic, non-hazardous rodent aversive. RodrepelTM is a perfect blend of smart technology and green chemistry. This product acts through a series of highly developed intricate mechanism ensuring that the rodents are kept away from the application.

 

The product triggers a fear response in rodents thus protecting the application. It causes severe temporary distress to the mucous membrane of the rodents due to which the pest stays away from the application. The product triggers an unpleasant reaction in case if the pest tries to gnaw away the application. After encountering the above-mentioned emotions, the animal instinctively perceives it with something it should stay away from and stores this information for future reference. The fact that certain rodents are repelled is mimicked by other rodents as well. Thus, the other rodents too stay away from the applications. The unpleasant experience is imprinted within the animal’s memory and passed on to its progeny.

The product is compliant with RoHS, RoHS2, and REACH, APVM, BPR and is FIFRA exempted. Our eco-friendly products do not kill the target species but only repel them.
