Combating rodent menace in your food business

One of the worst nightmares for guests has been an experience of food poisoning after eating in a restaurant or some other hospitality facility. The price a restaurateur pays for not taking care of hygiene and cleanliness of a hospitality facility is very expensive.

Food hygiene ratings have a greater impact over a diner’s choice of venue than customer service.

Shiny cooker hoods, stain-free carpets, clean kitchen areas, eating and dining areas, washrooms, and beautiful exteriors – a lot goes into maintaining a hygienic restaurant that’s always busy with customers and staff.

An abundant amount of food availability, improper sanitation, leftover food, are the reasons why the pests enter a restaurant.

It’s the duty of the restaurant manager to ensure the health and wellbeing of both customers and staff. Without proper hygiene and cleanliness policy in place, a restaurant runs the risk of failing health and safety inspections, contravening compliance laws and falling out of favor with its patrons.

There are numerous instances where restaurants have been closed due to pest infestations and failure to health and safety inspections..

Let us have a look at the news reported for same.

DIRTY DINING: Suburban Delray Beach restaurant temporarily closed for rodents, insects

Sam Smink │ wptv.com │November  28, 2018

A restaurant in western Delray Beach is on this week’s dirty dining list.

State inspectors on Nov. 20 say they found employees touching ready to eat food with their bare hands at the Bagel Tree Restaurant located at 6580 W Atlantic Ave.

More than 35 dry rodent droppings and about 15 fresh rodent droppings were found underneath a bread shelf by the water heater at a bagel station. Fresh rodent droppings were also found beneath a dry storage shelf.

Rat in hotpot shocks pregnant woman, shuts down restaurant in eastern China

South China Mornig Post │September 10, 2018

A man from Weifang surnamed Ma said he and his family were eating at the restaurant on Thursday night when, after a few bites, his wife found a dead rat in the soup.

Shanghai-based Kankan News quoted Ma as saying that restaurant staff had told him: “If you are worried about the baby, then we’ll give you 20,000 yuan (US$3,000) to abort it.”

The woman said she was halfway through her dinner when she found quite a few white worms in the soup. She immediately called restaurant staff who told her they were high protein and swallowed a worm to show her. There were no reports on whether authorities had intervened.

Use of mechanical traps and glue boards is common. But are they effective? The mechanical trap no longer works after an occurrence of mechanical error, while the glue boards are more dangerous when humans and pets are around. Pest control is absolutely dangerous due to their side effects. The toxic chemicals are extremely hazardous to be used near food preparation areas.

So what can be an effective remedy to keep the rodents and other pests away from the restaurants?

How to prevent squirrels from causing power outages?

Electrical disruptions caused by squirrels are common and widespread and can involve the disruption of power grids. It has been supposed that the threat to the internet, infrastructure and services posed by squirrels may exceed that posed by terrorists

A squirrel can disrupt a power system if its body becomes a current path between electrical conductors. Such incidents are result in power outages and are not good for the squirrel either.

A squirrel can disrupt a power system if its body becomes a current path between electrical conductors. Such incidents are result in power outages and are not good for the squirrel either.

Squirrels damage electrical distribution facilities by tunneling, by chewing through electrical insulation, or by simultaneously coming into contact with two conductors at different electrical potentials.

Squirrels have four teeth in the front of their mouth that constantly grow throughout their lives. This ensures that their teeth don’t wear down to nubs from gnawing on nuts and other objects.

The Washington Post reported in 2015 that the squirrels cause anywhere from 10 to 20 % of all outages.

The small animals are responsible for up to 2/3rd of the power outages at some utilities.

Recent news reported are:

Madison County squirrels caused 260 power outages in 2018

By Chris Joseph | December 18, 2018

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) – Squirrels are one of the biggest threats to the Valley’s electrical infrastructure.

Huntsville Utilities director of communications Joe Gehrdes said there were 260 power outages caused by squirrels, 54 caused by birds, and eight caused by “other wildlife” in 2018.

Gehrdes estimated there were 1,200 outages for the year in total, meaning animals (with 322 outages) made up roughly a fourth of the damage.

“Animals aren’t really a surprising nuisance for us, it’s just a fact of doing business in the electric industry,” he said.

Gehrdes said squirrels will climb up power poles and come in contact with two pieces of electric equipment. The squirrels body would then become a conductor for the energy, electrocuting the squirrel and damaging the components.

Squirrel causes power outage, traps people in elevators

By Ben Hooper │November 26, 2018

Nov. 26 (UPI) — A squirrel was blamed for a power outage in Virginia that left nearly 600 customers without power and trapped several people in elevators.

Appalachian Power said the outage, which began about 9:20 a.m. Monday, was caused when a squirrel came into contact with equipment at the 7th Street substation in Roanoke.

The incident knocked out power to nearly 600 customers and emergency workers said several people were subsequently rescued from elevators, including one person stranded near the sixth floor of a building.

All four front teeth of a squirrel never stop growing; if they did, they would be gnawed down to nothingness.

What can be the effective steps taking to keep them away from the applications.

Flying Squirrel – A great nuisance

Flying squirrel is the type of rodent which can be more appropriately called as gliding squirrels, although their name is flying squirrel in real they don’t fly but glide. They glide using a thin skin between their front leg and back leg that allows them to glide through the air from one tree to another tree. In a single glide, a flying squirrel can cover more than 150 feet. They have originated around 19 to 20 million years ago. The life expectancy of the flying squirrel is about 6 years.

Flying squirrels are nocturnal and are known to make huge noise especially during the night between the sunsets and have a high sense of smell. They can enter the attics through small cracks and crevices by chewing up the area for wide and large entry point as they are smaller than the gray squirrel. The typical habitat of the flying squirrel is inside hardwoods.

 Let’s have look at some of the evidence,

Students report flying squirrel infestation in Terraces

The Office of Facilities is working to address student reports that flying squirrels have been scurrying around in the Terraces Residence Halls at Ithaca College.

 The reports of flying squirrels were in Terraces 6 and 9. Facilities addressed the problem by sealing off where the squirrels had entered, said Ernie McClatchie, executive director in the Department of Facilities, Grounds and Transportation. Facilities first received reports of flying squirrels in Terrace 9 in mid-November and from Terrace 6 in early December. McClatchie said this is the first time he is aware that squirrels have accessed the dorms and were reported to Facilities.

 One of the students who filed a report to Facilities, sophomore Zachary Ashcraft, said the issue first arose Nov. 26 when he heard a rustling noise coming from under his bed. Two weeks later, he heard the same sound again, and Ashcraft and a friend used a granola bar to lure out and catch a glimpse of what he thought was a mouse.

 Ashcraft’s friend called the Office of Public Safety and Emergency Management, who told Ashcraft that there had been issues of flying squirrels in Terrace 6. Ashcraft was told by Public Safety to put in a work order with Facilities. Facilities put a trap in Ashcraft’s room three days later, and the trap failed to catch the squirrel, Ashcraft said. Facilities came back a day later to fill in the hole the squirrels were entering in from, and Ashcraft has not had issues with flying squirrels since.

Sophomore Julia Driscoll also said she experienced issues with flying squirrels; though, for her, the response from Facilities was not as fast. Driscoll said that the Sunday after Thanksgiving break, Nov.

Atkins’ roommate saw four squirrels in his room at one time Dec. 3, and Atkins said he was told by maintenance that the squirrels got in through the area surrounding the pipes in the walls. 25, she heard what sounded like a mouse, which was caught the day after. That same day, however, while she was at her desk, a flying squirrel jumped onto it and ran off.

Hungry flying squirrels strip, eat bark from pecan trees
Lenny Wells

Many growers have recently called about the bark being stripped from their trees. This normally occurs on smooth-barked limbs or central leaders 3 inches or less in diameter. The culprits here are flying squirrels.
When food sources become scarce, flying squirrels will strip the bark off smooth barked branches to feed on the tree’s cambium. If they completely girdle the limb or central leader at any point on the tree, the limb or leader will die from that point upward. If the damage does not completely girdle the limb or tree, the wound normally heals over with time. Flying squirrels are nocturnal. Their home range is usually no more than an acre so damage tends to be isolated to certain spots in the orchard.

We at C Tech Corporation make use of Mother Nature’s  gift of senses given to these pests.

 RodrepelTM is the best solution to keep rodents away from human contact.

RodrepelTMis a low-toxic, and low hazard rodent aversive. This product works on the mechanism of repellence. It does not harm or kill the target species but generate fear or trigger temporary discomfort within the pests that keeps the pests away from the application.

RodrepelTM is available in liquid concentrate which can be diluted in paints and can be applied on the surface. It is easy to apply and dries quickly and does not volatilize.

The product is available in lacquer form which is a direct application. The lacquer can be applied on the furniture and other wooden accessories. It can be applied on already installed wires and cables, polymeric utility pipes and equipment. The product is compatible with most of the surfaces like metal, wood, concrete, polymer; ceramic etc.

The product available in the form of masterbatch can be incorporated into the polymeric applications like wires and cables, pipes, equipment and accessories while they are manufactured.

Our newly developed product is in the form of a spray, RodrepelTM rodent repellent spray can be used by anyone and sprayed on the infected area. The product dries quickly and hence does not require much time to deliver the results.

Hospitals riddled with rats

A hospital is a healthcare institution providing a patient with medical treatment. Hospital is a place expected to be with utmost hygiene. But with recent news, it is evident that these places are not properly looked upon and the hygiene at these places is totally ignored.

Pest menace in hospitals has become a common sight in most of the hospitals across the country. From rats biting patients in ICU and dead bodies in the mortuary to bed bug infestations and food contamination through dead insects, the complaints about pest menace in areas of hospitals are on the rise.

Because pests pose a number of health threats through the spread of bacteria and contamination of surfaces, medical supplies, and equipment, ensuring that the facility remains pest-free is one of the major precautions needed to be taken by the hospital authorities.

Rodents in hospitals are a common sight these days. Rodents can enter buildings through almost any opening or crack larger than a dime. Once inside, rodents can cause structural damage as they are able to chew through wallboards, cardboard, wood, and plaster and through electrical wiring, increasing the potential risk of fire. Additionally, rodents defecate constantly and can easily contaminate any and all food and food preparation surfaces.

Let us have a look at some news articles pertaining to rodent menace in hospitals,

Rats nibble off corpse’s nose in Tamil Nadu hospital mortuary

Chidambaram: Repeated incidents corpses being eaten by rats, cats and rodents are reported from government hospitals in Tamil Nadu. In a latest report, it was claimed that a corpse kept inside the mortuary was bitten off by a rat.

Now, a 22-year-old Vaitheeswaran had allegedly committed suicide and his mortal remains were brought to Kamaraj Government Hospital in Chidambaram for post mortem. The corpse was kept in the mortuary after the post mortem. When Vaitheeswaran’s friends arrived at the hospital to take the body, they were shocked to see that his nose was bitten off.

When informed about the same to the doctor, they inspected the freezer where Vaitheeswaran’s body was kept. There was a hole in the freezer, defeating the very purpose. 

Just a month ago, at Coimbatore Medical College (government) Hospital, a video of cat nibbling woman’s corpse lying in the corner of the hospital ward had gone viral. 

Infant dies of ‘rat bite’ in Bihar hospital

Amarnath Tewary; THE HINDU │October 30, 2018

A nine-day-old boy died on Tuesday at a government hospital in Darbhanga district of Bihar allegedly after being bitten by rats. The district administration has ordered a probe.

“When we reached the hospital early in the morning, no nurse or doctor was around… we found that rats had bitten the baby’s hands and legs at several places… we immediately informed the authorities who told us that the baby was dead,” Phuran Chaupal, the father told local journalists in Darbhanga.

The hospital authorities said when the baby was admitted he was in a serious condition. “We admit that the hospital is infested with rats which we cannot control but there were no signs of rat bites on the baby’s body”, said a doctor posted at the hospital.

SHOCKING Hospital Apathy: Dead Body Bitten By Rats In ICU

timesnownews.com │August 9, 2018

A family from Damua in Madhya Pradesh was shocked when they found out that their dead 70-year-old relative who was a patient at a hospital had rat bite marks on the left eye. The family claims that the rat has bitten the patient in the ICU.

To keep rodents away from hospitals many ineffective control measures are used traditionally. These methods include use of rat traps which do not work once mechanical damage is caused to them. The hospitals are fumigated, which is a most dangerous method of pest control. Glue boards are used that can be dangerous if a patient accidently sticks to it. Rat poisons are used which are potential of killing the rodents and spreading the death diseases.

In a place like hospital effective and eco-friendly measures are necessary to keep these pests at a bay.

Is there such a solution available?

The Nutria Nuisance

They are back!

And this time they are huge in numbers!!

The nutria which has been especially damaging to the marshland ecology once thought to be eradicated from California is making a comeback and posing a threat to agriculture in the state, according to FERN’s latest story with KQED’s The California Report.

If you wonder about their nuisance causing habits, let me first explain you the menace they cause.

On the banks of rivers, the digging of the long burrows of the nutria often leads to destabilization and erosion of these, or an accelerated filling when it comes to ditches or canals. The network of tunnels can even, when the population is large, even weaken hydraulic structures.

Nutria feed primarily on marsh vegetation that extends above the waterline.   Nutria uses their beaver-sized incisors and powerful forefeet to dig under the marsh surface to feed directly on the root mat, leaving the marsh pitted with holes causing erosion and convert healthy marsh into open water habitat. Also a favorite with corn, wheat and all kinds of vegetables, it can do considerable damage to crops if they are close to its habitat.

It destabilizes the aquatic ecosystem by over-consuming aquatic plants and destroying aquatic bird nests.

Nutria are highly prolific and breed all year. One female nutria can lead to 200 offsprings in just a year! Imagine how rapidly their population increases within a year!!

Nutria, sometimes call coypu, are hosts for several pathogens and parasites that can infect people, pets, and livestock. This rather repulsive animal may carry diseases such as leptospirosis or liver fluke.

 An invasive, elusive 20-pound rodent threatens California agriculture

By Lisa Morehouse and Angela Johnston, Food & Environment Reporting Network │ December 2, 2018

Wearing chest-high waders, biologist Sean McCain tries to tiptoe to the edge of a marsh in California’s Central Valley. A biologist with the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, McCain squints as he searches the shoreline.

Sweet potato farmer Stan Silva hadn’t even heard the word “nutria” until a few months ago. He’s still never seen one, but he’s worried about the damage nutria could do if they aren’t eradicated.

“It would be devastating,” Silva says. “They can basically ruin the ag industry here — they get in your fields, burrow into your canal ways, your waterways. They’re just a menace.”

Rodents of Unusual Size Invading U.S. Wetlands

By Sarah Gibbens│ February 16, 2018

TWO HUNDRED YEARS ago, you probably wouldn’t have been able to find them outside of South America.

But since then, nutria, a giant rodent that can grow larger than 20 pounds, has taken hold in the U.S.

California is the latest region to be plagued by the large, buck-toothed, web-footed rodent. Earlier this month, the state’s fish and wildlife department issued a warning about the influx of nutria.

Breeding populations have recently taken hold in the San Joaquin Valley, just east of San Francisco.

It’s a very frightening situation in terms of impact.”

Use of traps is not a feasible way to combat the menace caused by the nutria. Rodenticides inhibit the coagulation of blood. Thus the logistics of using traps or rodenticides is not at all a solution to this menace.

What can be an effective and efficient way to keep this nutria away from the marshlands?

We at C Tech Corporation manufacture a product RodrepelTM which is developed by using green technology. It is an extremely low concern, low toxic, low hazard and non-mutagenic animal aversive. It is durable under extreme climatic conditions.

Our product works on the mechanism of repellency. The product does not kill the target species but merely repels them.

Our product is ROHS, ROHS2, EU-BPR, ISO 9001:2000, ISO 14001:1996, APVMA, NEA complaint, and FIFRA exempted.

RodrepelTM is available in the forms of a masterbatch, liquid concentrate, and lacquer.

Masterbatch can be incorporated into polymeric applications like fencing, water pipes, irrigation tubing, agricultural films, polymeric tree guards, wires, cables, tires, agricultural equipment, etc. This would result in the final application being rodent repellent.

Liquid concentrate can be mixed in paints in a pre-determined ratio and be applied to the interior and exterior of farms, gardens, etc. to repel nutria from the area required.

Lacquer form can be directly applied to the already installed application such as farm fences, tree guards, pipes, wires, cables, etc. The lacquer is compatible with most of the surfaces like metal, wood, concrete, polymer, ceramic etc.

Hence by using RodrepelTM the farms and marshlands can be prevented from nutria damage effectively and considerably.

Not VIP’s but still managed to cancel the flights: The rats!

Aviation is one of the most ‘global’ industries: connecting people, cultures and businesses across continents. Aviation has continued to expand. Aviation provides a rapid worldwide transportation network, which makes it essential for global business.

Another species which is making the most of this means of transport is the rodents!! Contrary to popular belief they are making these huge carriers their home. In the recent years, there have been numerable incidents of rodent sightings on planes domestic as well as international. So why do these creatures want to be airborne?

Airports often provide good year-round habitat for rodent populations. Rodents at airports can cause damage directly by gnawing and burrowing activities.

Recently Germany’s Federal Finance Minister Olaf Scholz’s travel through his jet was canceled not due to bad weather or mechanical problems, but because the rodents had bitten through the electrical cables.

News reported was:

Travel stress in Bali: rodents paralyze Olaf Scholz government plane

October 13, 2018

Olaf Scholz actually wanted to return home quickly from the IMF meeting in Bali – just in time for the Bavarian election. But the Vice Chancellor’s jet was not ready to go. The reason: damage caused by hungry rodents.

A rather unusual case of damage has caused travel stress for Federal Finance Minister Olaf Scholz. Because of a broken government plane, the SPD politician had to reschedule his return from the IMF meeting in Bali.

The Airbus “Konrad Adenauer” was damaged in Indonesia by rodents, which apparently have bitten through electrical cables. This was announced on Saturday on the sidelines of the annual meeting of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) from delegation circles. Vice Chancellor Scholz was rebooked on a scheduled flight to Germany.

Since he had to go to the airport immediately to be back in Germany because of the eagerly awaited state election in Bavaria, Scholz could not also deny the traditional final press conference with Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann.

Earlier a news was reported as:

MOUSE SPOTTED ON PLANE COSTS BRITISH AIRWAYS QUARTER OF A MILLION POUNDS

Roaming rodent triggers £250,000 bill for passenger care and compensation

By Simon Calder │March 1, 2017

British Airways faces a massive bill to compensate passengers after a mouse was spotted on a Boeing 777 about to depart from Heathrow to San Francisco.

Flight BA285 was due to leave Terminal 5 at 10.40am, but the presence of a roaming rodent meant the original aircraft could not be dispatched. Because mice have been known to gnaw through wiring on planes, wide-ranging checks must be made to ferret out any problems.

A chewed cable could be located anywhere between the tail and the ram air turbine (RAT).

Periodic fumigation for pest control is done by airlines to tackle the menace. Use of rat baits, mechanical traps, and glue boards have already proved to be ineffective. But the growing number of incidences reported clearly states the ineffectiveness of these methods.

Rats on board an aircraft can lead to a catastrophe if they start chewing up electric wires and if that happens, pilots will have no control over the system on board leading to a disaster.

What effective measures can be implemented to avoid this menace?

Rodrepel™ is a product manufactured by C Tech Corporation which is an extremely low toxic and extremely low hazard, and environmentally safe anti-rodent additive specially developed for a range of polymeric and coating applications including films, wires, and cables, etc. It is also effective in case the target species are other animals.

The wires and cables used in the airplanes for radar, communication, control, signaling, data transmission, lighting, surveillance etc. can be incorporated with Rodrepel™ masterbatch to prevent them from pest attack and ultimately avoid any signaling loss, communication disruption or fire hazard. Different types of polymeric seats can be manufactured by incorporating our masterbatch in them.

Rodrepel™ is also available in lacquer and liquid concentrate form and can be easily coated onto an application to repel the rodents.

The liquid concentrate can be blended with paints and applied to the interior and exterior of the airplanes to prevent the entry of pest in them. The liquid concentrate can be applied to the interior and exterior of the airports and the offices. The storage areas from the airports can be coated with our liquid concentrate to keep those places safe from pest menace. The liquid concentrate can be used in accommodation areas of pilots and crew members. The liquid concentrate is compatible with all types of paints and it dries off easily.

The lacquer can be applied on already installed wires and cables, utility pipes, polymeric and metallic racks, pallets. The already installed arrestor cables can be coated using our Rodrepel™ lacquer which will prevent the rodents from chewing them. The lacquer can be applied to metallic components from the equipment. The lacquer is an easy application which is compatible with most of the surfaces like wood, concrete, polymer, ceramics, concrete etc.

Our product CombirepelTM bird repellent lacquer can be used in the airport premises to prevent the nuisance caused by birds.

We have developed our product in the form of a spray, the RodrepelTM rodent repellent spray which is an easy to use product. The product can be sprayed on components from airplanes, offices, kitchen and canteen areas, storage areas, food carts, trolley cars, etc. after clearing the dust and waste from components. It can be sprayed on the wires and cables, seat cushions, doors, and windows of airplanes. It can be sprayed on infested areas and entry points. The product when applied properly repels the pests and protects the components from damage.
