Don’t let rodents check in your hotel

Hotels and accommodation play a vital role in popularizing any tourist destination. Hotels are important globally as providing the facilities for recreation, entertainment, meeting, conferences and business transmission. Rodents are a problem not only because of the diseases they can carry like salmonella, typhus, plague, and Hantavirus etc. Rodent and insect sighting in a restaurant area or worse in a guestroom could severely damage your reputation and result in the loss of the customers. As the weather gets colder, pests start moving indoors seeking food and warmth. Rats and mice are among some of the biggest pest threats to hospitality businesses. From the warm laundry rooms creating a perfect nesting environment for kitchens full of tasty treats, hotels offer great respite for these pests. Rodent and insects infestations in the hotel can spell disaster for a number of reasons.

Rodents and insect cause costly damage to the property. Since rodent teeth are continuously growing, they are constantly gnawing on things. If these pests stumble upon some wiring, this can lead to a power outage and be replacing some electrical wires. Burrowing rodents can also cause extensive damage to sewer systems.

In the search for food, rodents may find their way to food cache. Rats and mice are attracted to hotels by the food supplies in kitchens, restaurants, and waste storage areas. Populations can quickly build up if there are poor food and waste handling practices.

It is not just guests’ reactions to rodents and insects that can damage a hotel business; rodents and insects can contaminate food and surfaces they run along with a range of diseases. Contamination from rodents can lead to transmission of a number of diseases including Salmonella and Hantavirus. These diseases can be spread through direct contacts like a bite, or contamination of any food or water with droppings or urine. In addition to the bacteria and disease rodents carry, they also carry parasites like ticks, fleas, and lice which come with their own list of transmissible diseases.

All rodents and insects need moisture to survive – rats need half to one fluid ounce of free-standing water each day, while mice can often glean enough water from the foods they eat. Rats find water sources around perspiring soda and ice machines, leaky pipes, and HVAC units and around water fountains.

Though windows and doors are common sites of entry, holes, and cracks around doors, windows, vents and utility penetrations are often overlooked as entry points. Rodents can squeeze through surprisingly small openings – rats can fit through holes, while mice only need a dime-sized space to enter. Since rodents can enlarge any size hole by gnawing.

Let us consider some news articles:

Rodent droppings shut down 4 San Fernando Valley restaurants

By Stephanie K. Baer, 20th July 2017, LA Daily News

Five restaurants in Los Angeles were temporarily closed last week due to major public health hazards.

Facilities had their health permits suspended for cockroach infestations, according to a report from the Los Angeles County Public Health Department.

Restaurants and markets whose permits are suspended must close until another inspection determines the problems have been fixed. Closures can occur during routine and owner-initiated inspections, complaint investigations, and reinspections.

The department did not provide details about the nature of the rodent and cockroach and rodent infestations — like the number of cockroaches or rodent droppings and wherein the facility they were found.

Rats and mice found in Adelphi hotel kitchens

By Alan Weston, 20 Jun 2017, Echo news

An environmental health expert who inspected the kitchens at Liverpool’s Adelphi hotel reported she had “never encountered a food business with such a persistent problem of pests.”

These inspections found live cockroaches in restaurant kitchens, unclean floor surfaces and evidence of rats and mice.

The findings were revealed during a hearing at Liverpool Magistrates’ Court, where Adelphi owners Britannia Hotels Ltd (BHL) were charged with a string of food safety breaches.

The case was initially listed for trial after BHL denied a total of 20 charges brought by Liverpool City Council.

The charges related to failing to have adequate procedures in place to control pests, failing to keep food premises clean, and failing to prevent pests from accessing food premises.

From the above evidence, it is clear that pests can be a huge problem to the hotel industry. How can such issues caused by rodents be handled?

C Tech Corporation has a solution to the nuisance rodents.

C Tech Corporation can offer a solution to this problem. Our product RodrepelTM low-toxic, non-hazardous and rodent aversive.  Our product works on the mechanism of repellence and they do not harm or kill the target species but generate fear or trigger temporary discomfort within the pests that keep the pests away from the application. The unpleasant experience with our products is imprinted within animals memory and passed on its progeny.

RodrepelTM is available in liquid concentrate which can be diluted in paints in a pre-determined ratio and be applied to the interior and exterior of the hotels. It can be applied to the guest room, storage room, kitchen, pantry, laundry room etc. from the hotels to keep pests away from these places. The product available in the form of bedbug repellent can be sprayed on the mattresses used in the hotels.

The product is available in lacquer form which is a direct application.
It can be applied directly to the applications like the wooden furniture, kitchen trolleys already installed cables and pipes, etc. from the hotels.

The product available in the form of the masterbatch can be incorporated in the polymeric application like cables, pipes, storage devices, racks, pallets, etc. while they are manufactured.

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, ISO, APVMA, NEA and REACH and is FIFRA exempted.

Rodents cost big bucks to homeowners!

The rodent can cause millions of dollars in damages to homes every year. Although you may feel overwhelmed when mice, rats, and other rodents start munching on your home without your permission. Because rodent teeth never stop growing, these critters need to constantly gnaw and chew to keep their teeth short. It’s a survival tactic. If their teeth grow too long, they won’t be able to eat.

For some reason, rodents really love to gnaw on electrical wiring. This is bad news for the homeowner. Rodents will be able to make their way to every part of your home, from your attic to inside your walls, and everywhere else you have electrical wiring. They’ll chew on the wires and make them bare. As you may know, bare wires increase the risk of a fire.

It’s suspected that up to a quarter of all fires attributed to unknown causes are actually started by wire-chewing rodents.

Rodents will cause damage to your possessions for a few different reasons. They’ll tear your clothing and make use of any other soft material in order to build their nests.

They can also easily chew through your wood furniture in order to get inside to hide. They’ve been known to make their way inside large appliances such as dishwashers and stoves to make their nests.

Both plastic and aluminum pipes are no match for rodents. Mice and other creatures can and will chew through your pipes whether as means to shorten their teeth or just to get through if the pipes are in the way.

Holes in pipes, such as your dishwasher pipes, can lead to costly flooding. If this occurs, you’ll not only have to replace the pipes, but also potentially replace the flooring, the drywall, and other ruined possessions, too.

Your air conditioning units, ductwork, and other building places may seem a very inviting place for rodents to set up their homes. Rats and mice love to live inside of ducts and air returns, chewing through insulation and generally causing damage wherever they go. Not only that, but the diseased rodents’ germs may then be blowing through your house.

Attics and crawlspaces act as an invitation to rats and mice who love to practice chewing on thermal insulation. Not only that but if they are nesting in your insulation then you’ll eventually find that your insulation will be less effective. If rodents chew through the insulation around your water heater, they may be creating a fire hazard in your home.

Mice and rats are disgusting creatures that carry germs and disease wherever they go. Hantavirus, Salmonella, and Leptospirosis are just some of the dangerous diseases carried by rodents. Urine, droppings, and saliva from rodents all contain disease-causing germs which can also make their way into the air, resulting in problems with asthma and other allergic reactions.

Let us look at some evidence where rodents have severely damaged the homes and which lead to great monetary loss

Baby snapped playing next to dead RAT as army of giant rodents invade home

17th February 2017, Daily star

Carla Hazlett, 41, claims they have chewed her possessions and left droppings and urine all over her children’s clothes.

Carla said: “There are hundreds of rats and they are into absolutely everything. I can hear them in the walls and ceilings and they have dug holes in the cellar.

“I have found rat droppings and urine on my kids’ clothes in the cupboards so I have had to throw everything out.

“The rats have chewed all my carpets and it has cost me thousands – I had carpeted the house for £1,000 and I had to put a £1,500 three-piece suite outside because there were rat droppings all in it.

“The first time I saw one of the rats, I froze – there was two of them on the worktop in the kitchen just eating the cereal left over from the kids’ breakfast in the morning.

“It has just got worse and worse – I have been sat on the bed before just watching them run around me.”

Berkeley Neighborhood Deals With Rodent Infestation

NBC Bay area, 6th September 2017

Residents of an East Bay neighborhood were not sleeping easy Wednesday night. They had rats on their mind.

The rodent infestation was so bad in North Berkeley that one woman had to temporarily move out of her home.

The rats are causing a lot of problems for Christine Simon and her next door neighbor.

“It started in May,” Simon said. “I got mysterious bites all over my body, very itchy.”

Simon’s dermatologist narrowed her problem down to rat mites. They are parasites that live on rats much like fleas.

“They take up to two months to die on their own,” Simon said. “Two months of going to bed every night and being eaten alive.”

The control of rodents is an integral step to safeguard health, lives, food, property, and economics. The use of conventional fumigants, rodenticides is no longer considered to be an effective solution to get rid of the rodent infestation as these rodents are becoming increasingly resistant to them, the traditional baits and traps are also proving to be useless in preventing rodents from invading our homes. Therefore, we require a long-term and sure shot solution that can help prevent the damaged caused by these rodents in our homes.

C Tech Corporation can offer a solution to overcome this damage. Rodrepel™ is a non-toxic, non-hazardous, non-carcinogenic and environmentally safe, anti-rodent additive.

The masterbatch of Rodrepel™ can be incorporated in wires and cables, gas pipelines and other polymeric applications used in-house to protect them from the rodent attacks.

The product available in the form of the liquid concentrate can be mixed in the paints in a pre-determined ratio and be applied to the interior and exterior of the houses. The liquid concentrate can be used in the kitchen, bedrooms, lavatory etc, to keep these places safe from pests.

The product available in the form of lacquer is a direct application and can be used directly on the furniture, kitchen trolly, metallic keepsakes etc. from houses. The lacquer is compatible with most of the surfaces like the wood, metal, polymer, ceramic, concrete. The lacquer gives a transparent finish when applied on an 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.

RodrepelTM is cost effective and has a very long shelf life. The product can effectively control the proliferation of these undesired pests! RodrepelTM is RoHS, RoHS2, ISO, APVMA, NEA and REACH compliant and FIFRA exempted.

Cotton rats: Threat to our crops

In particular mouse and rat genes are now being cloned at an ever-increasing rate providing a genetic framework for animal models of many human diseases. The cotton rat is technically known as Sigmodon hispidis (i.e. Sigmodon is Greek meaning “tooth”, in reference to the ridges of enamel on its molars, and hispidis is Latin meaning bristles or spines, in reference to its coat). Although it is a rodent, S. hispidis is neither a rat nor a mouse; its closest relatives are lemmings, voles, and muskrats. The cotton rat is the most common rodent in the southeastern United States as well as Mexico and Central America.

Notably, the cotton rat in the wild is now recognized as a primary reservoir of hantavirus in the southeastern United States, and thus it has acquired considerable standing in the epidemiological community.

Cotton rats prefer dense covers such as grassy fields, overgrown roadsides, or fencerow vegetation adjacent to cultivated fields. They also occupy meadows, marshy areas, cactus patches, and weedy ditch banks. Under the protective cover, the cotton rat will have well-defined runways radiating in all directions from the nest site.

They are active year round and do not hibernate although heavy rains and extreme cold weather will decrease its activities. Hispid cotton rats run and swim. Hispid cotton rats are territorial and usually solitary, showing aggression toward other rodents inhibiting the same fields. Cotton rats are normally herbivores, eating the roots, stems, leaves, and seeds of a wide variety of plants. They also feed on sugarcane, fruits, berries, and nuts. Cotton rats will cut tall plants off at the base and continue to cut them into shorter sections. They also eat insects, the eggs and young of ground-nesting birds (particularly quail), and the carcasses of dead animals. They are called cotton rats because they build their nests out of cotton, and can damage cotton crops.

Cotton rats are basically nocturnal but will venture out in the daytime and are active year-round. Cotton rat populations fluctuate greatly, ranging from 11 to 149 per acre (28 to 373/ha), and cause the most serious damage during population peaks. They may damage a variety of crops, including alfalfa, grains, grasses, vegetables, peanuts, fruit crops, sweet potatoes, and sugar beets. Cotton rats are especially troublesome in sugarcane and melons. Since these animals will eat quail eggs, a high cotton rat population may have a detrimental impact on quail nesting success. Cotton rats also compete with quail for the same foods. Cotton rats at moderate densities (<20 per ha) in old-field habitats consume 1-2% of standing crop biomass and destroy another 8% through harvesting of low-quality vegetation and construction of runways.

Hispid cotton rats are known to carry numerous diseases such as, hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, rat bite fever, salmonellosis and tularemia, which can be transmitted to humans, pets, and livestock.

Cyclical Population Explosion of Cotton Rats Causes Concern

October 25, 2005

CANYON  The Texas Panhandle and South Plains needed a pied piper this summer to deal with a population explosion of cotton rats.

An alarm was raised this year when the normally range-habitat rat started showing up in towns, getting the attention of homeowners, said Ken Cearley, Extension wildlife specialist in Canyon.

A pumpkin producer in Yoakum County reported up to 60 percent of his pumpkins were damaged by the rats gnawing on them. One homeowner reported trapping 10 in her home.

There was an article in “The Mammals of Texas – Online Edition.” where an incidence took place in Texas again where millions of cotton rodents caused serious losses to farm crops, particularly peas, peanuts, watermelons, and cauliflower.

“This thing exploded rather quickly and we didn’t know how broad and wide it would be,” Gilliland said. “It has been a fire drill for us.

Seemingly innocuous attacks by cotton rats can cost us dearly in terms of monetary value as well as human life. It is imperative that we take steps to control and contain this damage. Conventional methods of dealing with these creatures included the use of armored cable, use of glass roving, insecticidal baits, glue boards and use of toxic chemical additives. Along the years each of these tried and tested methods have failed at some levels due to many reasons including adaptability of rodents, development of immunity to traditional poisons etc.

The time has come to look for a better alternative which is effective, eco-friendly and long lasting solution.

These rodents play a vital role in our ecosystem. These cotton rats are used as an important animal model for the study of various pathogens, infections etc. Since these rodents are vital for our ecosystem, it is of extreme importance to find a safe and non-toxic solution for the cotton rats problem which would keep these insects at bay while not causing any harm.

C Tech Corporation can offer a solution to overcome the damage caused by cotton rats. Rodrepel™ is a non-toxic, non-hazardous, non-carcinogenic and environmentally safe, anti-rodent additive. It does not kill but repels. It is engineered using a unique set of complex compounds.

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.

Rodrepel™ masterbatch can be incorporated in polymer pipes, irrigation pipes, drip tapes, agriculture films, mulches, storage devices, racks, pallets etc.

RodrepelTM is available in liquid concentrate form can be mixed in paints in a pre-determined ratio and applied on the concrete fence around the cotton farms. The product can be used to paint the interior and exterior of the storehouses used to store cotton and other agricultural produce. This will prevent the pests from entering these areas.

RodrepelTM lacquer is a proper solution as a topical application to apply on fencing of trees and lawns. the lacquer can be used to coat the wooden racks and pallets in the storehouses. Lacquer does not interfere with the aesthetic properties of the application.

RodrepelTM is cost-effective, inert, and thermally stable and does not degrade on exposure to heat and sunlight. It does not volatilize and does not degrade in the soil. It is RoHS, RoHS2, REACH, ISO, APVMA, NEA compliant and FIFRA exempted.

Rodents menace on planes!

The sky is not the limit especially for those who wish to be there. Aviation happens to be the most dynamic industry. With the advent of affordable fares, it has become the new luxury that the middle and upper middle class can now afford. Numerous rat sightings have occurred on planes, and have not only been bad for business; they have also been posing serious health and safety concerns for all on board. Rodents at airports can cause damage directly by gnawing and burrowing activities.

Rodents and insects sometimes manage to hitch a ride on food catering trucks or luggage trollies to get inside planes. Unfortunately, rats on planes have become a distressingly common problem for planes.  Rodents on aircraft also pose biosecurity and health risks. Rodents may carry exotic zoonoses, and rodent feces have been found in aircraft where food is prepared. The rodent species itself and the diseases it carries may be exotic to the port and country of arrival.

Once the waste food gets exhausted the mice and rats are unable to escape from the aircraft when they are hungry they chew through cables and wires that the pilots need to control the aircraft.

Rats are known to carry multiple pathogens and diseases, and can even chew through cables and wires that the pilots need to control the aircraft.  Rodents have been causing great financial losses to several airplanes.

Let us have a look at some incidences where flights have been delayed due to rat spotting.

Rat delays Air India Delhi-San Francisco flight by 9 hours at Delhi airport

August 28, 2017

An Air India Boeing 777 had to delay its departure from Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport for nine hours after a rat was spotted aboard. The rat had been spotted on the aircraft as the plane was taxiing to the runway. The maximum flying time of the crew was over by the time the fumigation of the aircraft was completed. When a rodent is spotted on an aircraft as the rat can chew important wires or cables, which could leave the aircraft inoperable and may even result in a catastrophe.

Tiny Mouse Grounds International Flight From London to SFO

By Terry McSweeney, NBC Bay area, March 1, 2017

More than 300 passengers were delayed in London for more than four hours after the rodent was found on the British Airways jet. The passengers were onboard the plane at Heathrow Airport, about to pull back from the gate, when a flight attendant saw a mouse.

Someone saw a mouse under one of the doors,” said Chris Claeboe, a passenger from Fremont. “They kept us on the plane for about 15 minutes and told us we had to get off because it can’t fly with a mouse.”

Health inspectors find mother rodent and 10 pups flying business class on flight to China

By DANIEL MILLER, 17 October 2013

Health inspectors discovered 11 rats on an airliner after it arrived in China from Hong Kong, underneath a business class seat.

The find, at Xiamen Gaoqi International Airport in Fujian Province on September 30, is believed to be the largest number of rats ever discovered aboard a commercial flight.

The aircraft’s cabin was immediately closed while the airport launched a public health emergency plan.

Luckily tests showed no viruses had been left behind by the animals. The plane was later given the all-clear after confirming its wiring was intact.

It is imperative that we take steps to control this damage. To avoid this toxic solution are currently in play. Many times the airplanes are sprayed with certain pesticides which lead to several health problems ranging from nausea to convulsion to more severe ones like birth defects and other genetic damages in future. These pesticides lead to respiratory problems, skin reactions, nervous system damage, and endocrine disorder. Therefore the use of pesticides on planes or any other places with direct human contacts should be totally avoided.

So is there a solution for this rodent menace?

We at C Tech Corporation have come up with a viable solution for this problem. Our product Rodrepel™ is an extremely low toxic, non-hazardous rodent aversive. This product acts through a series of highly developed intricate mechanism ensuring that rodents are kept away from the target application. Our eco-friendly products do not kill the target species but only repel them.

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 products are available in the form of solid masterbatches which can be incorporated as a polymer additive in the sheathing of wires and cables used in various sensitive equipment in an airplane to make it rodent resistant.

The product available in the form of liquid concentrate can be mixed with the paints in a pre-determined ratio and be applied to the interior and exterior of the planes.  It can be applied in the pantry and kitchens from the planes.

Also, the food lockers and other vulnerable areas to damage can be coated with our lacquer based solutions.

Our products have a long shelf life. This product work on the mechanism of sustainability and green technology and therefore significant in today’s time and date as ecology salvation has become the prime focus.

Facing pest nuisance in RAILWAYS?

Railways are the most important means of transport in present day and Indian Railways is the third largest railway network in the world comprising 119,630 kilometers of total track and 92,081 km of running track over a route of 66,687 km with 7,216 stations at the end of 2015-16. In 2015-16, IR carried 8.107 billion passengers annually or more than 22 million passengers a day and 1.101 billion tons of freight annually.

These huge number of passengers travel through rail routes because they are provided with a cheap and convenient mode of transport by railways. But with this convenient mode of transport passengers are getting a bad experience nowadays, aren’t they?

They are facing the rodent and insect nuisance during their long travel journey via railways and following are the evidence:

IT’S PESTS OUT OF CONTROL IN PUNE RLY DVN’S TRAINS

By Dheeraj Bengrut, Pune Mirror | Updated: Aug 30, 2017, 02.30 AM IST

85 complaints in two months about cockroaches, mosquitoes and rats in trains, including AC coaches, as railways only manages temporary fixes

Over the last few months, there has been a rise in unpleasant complaints under Pune railway division, casting a spotlight on the menace of insects and other pests abounding inside long-distance trains, especially air-conditioned (AC) coaches. In fact, more than 85 such complaints have been lodged in the last two months by passengers traveling through, to and from Pune railway division.

Consider one of the passenger’s bad experience against the cockroaches in railways:

Take for instance the nightmare faced by passenger Jaipreet Chhatwal, who was traveling in an AC coach of the Amravati-Pune Express on August 28. His night journey was, unfortunately, a sleepless one, thanks to a large number of cockroaches crawling all around the coach. Ranting about the experience, Jaipreet told Mirror, “It was a sleepless, 12-hour night journey — I must have caught and killed at least 23 cockroaches that night, that too in an AC coach for which premium ticket rates were paid. This was an unforgettable trip — and not in a good way at all.

Southern Railway to pay Rs 27,350 for rat damaging bag on train

DECCAN CHRONICLE. | P ARUL

Published: Aug 19, 2017, 6:56 am IST

Chennai: A city consumer forum has directed Southern Railway to pay a compensation of Rs 27,350 to a passenger whose suitcase was damaged by a rodent.

The passenger has the below words to say about his experience on rodents in railways:

On reaching the destination, Devadas found his Samsonite suitcase was cut open in the bottom for almost 6 inches by rats during the travel.  “I purchased the suitcase for Rs 12,600 only recently. And, due to lack of maintenance of the compartments the rats caused damages to the suitcase”, he said.

There are many more complaints regarding the pest nuisance faced by passengers. Why do pests create such a nuisance in railways?

I will tell you the reason!

Railways are the attractive points to rodents and cockroaches. There are many reasons for this but let me tell you few. There is the availability of a large amount of food for eg. left-over food by passengers, open dustbins, pantry areas, etc. Next, the railways provide a natural habitat for rodents and insects to survive.

Rodents gnaw over the bags of passengers because they get attracted to them. Rodents have two pairs of incisors growing throughout their life. They need to gnaw continuously in order to keep them sharp.

The polymeric applications like wires and cables also attract rodents due to their bright colors, odor, and smooth texture. They gnaw at this applications and lead to a power failure which can lead to a disaster further.

Insects like bedbugs and cockroaches also create a great nuisance leading passengers for having sleepless nights. The number of insects goes on increasing rapidly within a suitable environment they get in railways.

The wood and sunmica sheets applied all over the railway interiors attract termites. Termites are the most destructive pest. They also gnaw over the polymeric applications. The formic acid produced by them can dissolve even strongest plastic.

Do you think railways are taking effective steps to stop this nuisance?

Pest control techniques used by railways are appreciable but not effective. Pesticides are hazardous and toxic to animals as well as humans. The pesticides are used in the railways weekly and sometimes monthly.

Though railways are trying to defend against pests, they need to find out a perfect and effective solution knowing the reasons how destructive the pests are and resulting damage so horrible.

Hence C Tech Corporation provides you the best solution to all the problems faced in railways due to pests. Our products viz. RODREPELTM, TERMIREPELTM, and COMBIREPELTM are the pest repellents developed on green technology.

RODREPELTM is an anti-rodent aversive effective against all the species under order Rodentia.

COMBIREPELTM is an anti-rodent as well as anti-insect aversive. It works on the combined mechanism of RODREPELTM and TERMIREPELTM.

Our products are extremely low toxic, non-hazardous, and non-mutagenic. It repels the rodents and insects from the application. They do not cause any harm to the environment as well as to humans and animals/insects. They are developed on the basis of green chemistry following the ancient ideology.

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.

Rodents Damage in Agricultural business!

Pest menace in the agricultural sector is one of the most significant issues today in India which needs to be addressed immediately. Apart from unpredictable rains, droughts and natural disasters insects are also the major contributors in lowering the agricultural yield every year. The damages can be categorized into two types, pre-harvest damages, and post-harvest damages. Harvest and post-harvest loss of India’s major agricultural production are estimated at Rs 92,651crore ($13 billion) according to data published by the Ministry of food processing industries on August 9, 2016. The loss is almost three times as high as the budget for the agriculture sector.

They will infest any premises; refuse tips, farms, rural dwellings and watercourses that provide food and shelter.

Rat populations have been rising steadily during the past 30 years, with premises in rural areas twice as likely to be infested as urban dwellings. Warmer winters have allowed rats to survive and to breed for longer periods. In some localities, there may also be control difficulties due to resistance to the early anti-coagulant rodenticides, such as warfarin.

Another possible cause of higher rat numbers in rural areas is the fact that stubble burning is no longer practiced and this leaves food in the fields for rats, such as spilled cereal grains.

Rats will travel to find food, water, shelter and a mate. This might be more than two miles a night in the countryside and at certain times of the year when immediate food supplies are not available or weather conditions are harsh.

The degree of movement can be an important factor in the spread of problems associated with rats – namely health problems, contamination and wastage and damage to property, equipment, and materials.

The demand for high-quality food and concern for the health and safety of farm employees and livestock make these problems highly significant and enforce the need for proper control. Lack of effective crop protection measures during the pre-harvest stages causes various types of pest and rusts to damage the quantity and quality of the crop. Improper storage and handling during the post-harvest period are the major reasons for the damages caused by rodents and insects in agriculture.

The quantitative loss is caused by the reduction in weight due to factors such as spillage and consumption by the pest. The qualitative loss can occur due to the incidence of insect pest, mites, rodents, and birds, or from handling, physical changes or chemical changes in fat, carbohydrates, and protein, and by contamination of mycotoxins, pesticide residues, insect fragments, or excreta of rodents and birds and their dead bodies. When this qualitative deterioration makes food unfit for human consumption and is rejected, this contributes to food loss.

Rodents as a part of their oral maintenance constantly gnaw on the various polymeric applications used in agriculture like agricultural films, storage bags, mulches, and even the drip irrigation pipes and tubing.

Apart from damaging the agricultural business they also carry 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.

Signs that rodents are present where grains are stored include:

  • feces droppings;
  • runs and tracks (dark, greasy stains) that can be found along the base of walls, fences or across rubble;
  • footprints and tail marks in the dust;
  • urine traces, which are fluorescent in ultraviolet light;
  • chewed grain kernels and gnaw marks on sacks, doors, cables and other materials; and
  • Nests in corners or roof areas or burrows just outside the building.
  • Rodents thrive in places where there is a sufficient food supply, protected places to build burrows and nests, hiding places and access to produce.

Let us look at some news articles.

Farmers’ crops destroyed with rat infestation.

December 13, 2016.

This article was published by Mr. McCullough in independent.ie

One farmer in Carlow says the infestation of rats in his tillage crop could prove a health and safety issue for local residents.

The planting of wild bird cover under GLAS has become the third most widespread cereals crop in the country, after barley and wheat.

However, while the bird cover has generally been very successful, some problems have been identified by both farmers and advisors.

Among the difficulties that have come to light, one of the more serious is rat infestation in the crop.

The farmer planted 1.3ha of the crop, which delivers a payment of up €900/ha/year under GLAS.

A mix of spring barley and linseed was sown and not harvested, as the GLAS measures specifies, with the crop left as a source of winter feed for wild birds.

However, a serious infestation of rats has taken hold in the plot and the farmer is fearful that the rodents could prove a health and safety threat to two nearby houses.

“The rats have really taken over in the crop,” he explained.

“They are burrowing into the hedgerows and they have tracks going through the crop, you’d think they were for sheep.”

He discounted suggestions that another food source could have attracted the rats to the site.

“It is the perfect cover for rats and an ideal food source when you think that there could be around six tonne of barley there to be eaten,” he said.

Under GLAS rules, bird cover must continue to be grown on the same parcel for five years.

Richard Hackett of the Irish Tillage Consultants Association (ITCA) said rat infestation of wild bird cover crops had not been noted as a widespread problem by advisors.

But he said there had been difficulties with the crop and “there were issues that needed to be ironed out.”

Officials confirmed that close to 8,000 farmers in GLAS 1 and GLAS 2 grow around 14,000ha of the crop.

Rodents pose one of the most serious threats to food production worldwide, but indiscriminately removing rodents from ecosystems is not always the best management option.

The magnitude of damage caused by pests in agriculture is huge. Thus there is an urgent need to address this problem.

At C Tech Corporation we offer a solution called Rodrepel™ which is a non-toxic, non-hazardous additive that helps us keep rodents at bay without causing any harm to the rodent or any other species that consumes or comes in contact with it.

It is an eco-friendly product that can be safely incorporated in polymers or coated on surfaces to repel rodents and other animals without killing them.

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 available in the form of masterbatch can be incorporated in the polymeric applications used for agriculture purposes. The masterbatch can be incorporated in the agricultural films and mulches, irrigation pipes, sprinklers, cables,  polymeric parts from the tractors, motors etc.

The liquid concentrate can be applied to the interior and exterior of the storage areas used to store the agricultural produce. The liquid concentrate can be mixed in the paints in a pre-determined ratio and be used a topical application. The liquid concentrate can be used to coat the agricultural equipment. This product is compatible with all types of paints and solvents. The product does not alter the properties of the paints.

The product available in the lacquer form can be used a direct application and can be applied to the racks and pallets used in the storage areas. The lacquer can be used on the wooden applications used for agricultural production. It can be applied to the already installed applications like the pipes and cables. The lacquer is compatible with most of the surfaces like wood, polymer, metal, concrete, ceramic, etc.

Rodrepel (TM): Your rescue against beaver


The beaver is a large, primarily nocturnal, semiaquatic rodent. They are the second-largest rodent in the world. They have a number of adaptations that make them adept swimmers including webbed feet and a broad, flat tail that is covered with scales. They also have an extra set of eyelids which are transparent and close over their eyes enabling beavers to see while underwater. Beavers also seem to use their tails to regulate their body temperature. The tail is not well insulated, so when a beaver is too hot it can offload excess body heat through its tail.

Beavers have very large teeth in proportion to their skull. The incisors have a structure that means they are self-sharpening. Their incisors grow at an angle towards the beaver’s left eye. The outer surface is coated in enamel and the inner surface coated in dentine. This enamel is orange to chestnut brown in color. The softer dentine erodes faster than the hard enamel, maintaining a sharp cutting edge as the beaver gnaws. Beaver’s incisors grow at the fairly nifty speed of almost 0.5 cm a month. The top and bottom teeth keep each other sharp. This is in large part down to its powerful jaw muscles, which give it a far larger bite force for its body size than most other rodents. Beavers’ teeth grow continuously throughout their lives. As beavers chew through tree trunks and bark, their teeth get worn down, so the continuous growth of their teeth ensures they always have a sharp set of teeth available to them. To further assist them in their chewing endeavors, beavers have strong jaw muscles and significant biting strength. Beavers can unleash nearly 180 pounds of biting force per square inch, compared to the human’s 88 pounds.

Beavers are well known for the thunderous warning slaps or splashes of their tails that alert other family members to the presence of intruders. A beaver colony marks an area by building mounds of mud near the lodge and dam near trails. On these mounds, which usually vary from 2-7 in numbers and are 5.0-7.5 cm.

Beaver Kills Belarus Man With Deadly Bite

11th April 2013

The below article is written by Mr. Daniel D. Snyder from outsideonline.com

A man in Belarus found out the hard way that beavers are not to be trifled with. The unidentified victim was on a fishing trip with two friends at Lake Shestakov when they spotted the massive rodent on the side of the road. The man approached the beaver intending to take its picture when the creature pounced and bit him in the thigh. The bite severed a main artery and the man bled to death.

Beaver attacks are a rarity, but the animals can become more aggressive at about two years of age when they leave their colony to find a mate. Beavers can unleash nearly 180 pounds of biting force per square inch, compared to the human’s 88 pounds.

Last July, two girls were attacked by a beaver by while swimming in a lake in Virginia. There were no fatalities, save for the beaver, who was shot. A month later, a boy scout leader was attacked while swimming in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. The beaver was brought down by a group of angry, rock-wielding boy scouts. Again, there were no fatalities, but the scout leader had to receive treatment for rabies.

Beaver knocks out power to thousands after chewing down pole near Prince Albert

Oct 30, 2017

The city of Prince Albert, Sask., and a large chunk of northern Saskatchewan lost power for about an hour after a beaver partially chewed through a power pole southeast of the city on Sunday.

SaskPower is calling this a very Canadian problem.

“This was one of our larger wooden power poles and there was ample evidence of beaver damage at the base of it, so beavers had been chewing away at it,” said spokesperson Jonathan Tremblay.

Animals account for roughly one-third of the power outages experienced by SaskPower customers.

“Usually, it’s birds flying into substations, or squirrels chewing at things they shouldn’t,” he said.

In May, the Crown utility had to repair another line after beavers gnawed through a pole in the southwest.

Beavers are more active this time of year, as young beaver kits are pushed out of lodges.

While SaskPower was able to reroute power around the area, people near the village of Weldon were without power for nearly five hours.

To deal with the problem of these beavers there is only one effective solution: Rodrepel™, a unique and non-toxic product of C Tech Corporation.

Rodrepel™ is a non-toxic, non-hazardous and environment-friendly rodent repellent. Rodrepel™ is available in three forms solid masterbatch, liquid concentrate, and lacquer.

Masterbatch can be used for various polymeric applications and can be incorporated while manufacturing. The polymeric applications like the pipes, cables, storage devices etc. can be manufactured using our masterbatch.

The product available in the form of the liquid concentrate can be mixed in the paints in a pre-determined ratio and be applied on the concrete surfaces.

Lacquer can be directly applied in the installed application. It can be used on the wooden fences, metallic surface, polymeric cables and pipes which are already installed etc.

The unique quality that makes Rodrepel™ different from the conventional methods is that it works on the mechanism of repellency.

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.

Are these little critters taking over your attic?

Innocent and playful might be the words you associate with squirrels. These critters can be cute but they can also be a menace. Squirrels are usually not harmful when they are living in your trees, but they can be very destructive and a health hazard once they invade your home.  As squirrels have litters of babies twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall, they are constantly looking for sheltered areas to build their nests. Attics and soffit areas make ideal nesting location for squirrels. Squirrels get into the attic by chewing holes from the outside, typically above gutters, or at construction gaps where dormers meet the roofline. They may also gain entry to attics by chewing corners of trim or any other weak area that allows them access to the attic space. Their heights provide protection from predators and humans and allow squirrels to remain warm and dry through inclement weather.

Squirrels commonly cause damage to attic insulation or chew wires in the attic. Squirrels chew on wires to sharpen, strengthen and control the growth of their teeth. And once they’ve chewed their way through, exposed wires become a major safety concern. Exposed wires can cause unexplained service interruptions, start fires or even electrocute anyone who touches them. As more litters of squirrels are born in or near the home, these squirrels will grow up, leave the nest and search for new areas within the attic to build their own nests.  They continuously gnaw on something in order to reduce their incisors that can cause thousands of dollars in building damage. As long as the squirrels continue to stay in the attics they will try to create more entry points.

Squirrels have also been known to chew through PVC piping. Imagine the destruction that could be caused by a damaged water line in your attic!

Let us look at some incidences where squirrel have severely damaged the attics and which lead to great financial loss:

Squirrels are £20 million menace to homeowners

01 Mar 2011, The telegraph

Squirrels have been blamed for causing more than £20 million of damage to homes in Britain, including gnawed roof beams and chewed wiring. Last year, Glen and Laura Borner’s three-bedroom home in Hertfordshire burned down after squirrels chewed through electrical wiring in the loft.

Besides the estimated £20 million of damage to properties, the Forestry Commission said that squirrels also caused more than £10 million.

Flying squirrels and indoor snow make life miserable for Edina condo owner

DECEMBER 12, 2015, Star tribune

When the flying-squirrel guy told Tina Nelson that it was snowing in her attic, she knew things were getting out of hand at her Edina condo.

That was almost two years ago. Since then, the squirrels infesting her attic have been removed and the openings that let them in, along with the snow, have been closed. But Nelson continues to complain of problems with her unit at the Village Homes of Edinborough complex.

Seemingly the attacks by squirrels can cost us dearly in terms of monetary value as well as human life. It is imperative that we take steps to control and contain this damage. Conventional methods of dealing with these creatures include the use of toxic chemical additives and trapping. Along the years each of these tried and tested methods have failed at some level due to a variety of reasons but not restricted to corrosion, adaptability of rodents, development of immunity to traditional poisons, etc.

They play a vital role in our ecosystem. They are great at planting trees. They bury their acorns but forget where they put them.

Hence to use toxic rodenticides to prevent damage caused by squirrels will not be an ideal solution. Also, rodenticides can harm target as well as non-targeted species.

The time has come to look for a better alternative; an effective and long-lasting solution. A sure shot and effective way of doing this are ensuring that these rodents are kept away from our attics for a long period of time.

Rodrepel™ a rodent and animal repellant manufactured by C Tech Corporation is ideal.

Rodrepel™ is a non-toxic, non-hazardous rodent repellant available in the form of the masterbatch which can be incorporated in the cable sheathing during polymer processing. It can be incorporated into the polymeric pipes, containers, roofs etc.

Rodrepel™ in liquid form can be mixed with the paints in a pre-determined ratio and can be applied on the interior and exterior of houses, hospitals, schools, warehouses etc. to keep the pests out of these areas. The liquid concentrate can be applied on the areas of the attic to prevent the pests entering this area.

RodrepelTM lacquer can be applied as a topical application on the wooden parts of the attics and also on the already installed cables.
The lacquer is compatible with most of the surfaces like wood, concrete, polymer, ceramic etc.

This product has been engineered with precision to work on multiple levels targeting the acutely developed sense of the rodents. It also targets the other olfactory senses causing temporary discomfort ensuring the rodent stays away from the end 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.

In our war against these four-legged terrorists, Rodrepel™ promises to be a reliable and promising weapon, making it our weapon of choice.

Bear menace can’t be borne!

One little bear
Wondering what to do
Along came another
Then there were two!

You never know when a couple of these wondering animals end up doing dreadful things!

Recently these bears were just wondering and they ended up visiting a pizza store in Colorado on a pizza eating spree, gobbling up the dough in the fridge before moving on to the salami.

Bears come in many different colors, shape, and sizes and they live all over the world, except Antarctica and Australia.  Their habitats range from the snowy northern tundra to dense rainforests and high mountains.  Most species of bears live to around 25 years of age. There are eight different species of bears.  They are Asiatic, Black, Brown, Polar, Panda, Sloth, Spectacled and Sun.  Some of these species have a few sub-species.

Common characteristics of modern bears include large bodies with stocky legs, long snouts, small rounded ears, shaggy hair; plant grade paws with five non-retractile claws, and short tails. While the polar bear is mostly carnivorous, and the giant panda feeds almost entirely on bamboo, the remaining six species are omnivorous with varied diets. With the exception of courting individuals and mothers with their young, bears are typically solitary animals.

As scavengers, bears will go through garbage cans and are often spotted at garbage dumps and campsites.  Insects, nuts, berries, sap, branches, and roots are a big part of a bear’s diet. Adults are solitary and usually avoid contact with humans; however, they may attack if starving or to protect cubs. Bears are large and can be quite intimidating so they don’t have many enemies.  Their biggest enemies are humans and each other.

Although clumsy in appearance, bears can move surprisingly fast, even through dense cover that would seriously impede a human or a horse.

If captured when young, bears can be tamed quite easily and are commonly used in circus animal acts. This has often caused people to consider bears as tame and harmless rather than as potentially dangerous creatures deserving wariness and respect. This mistake has frequently resulted in tragedy for both humans and bears.

Polar bears and grizzly bears can be dangerous to people, especially when they are sharing a habitat.

Bears Caught On Video In Estes Park Pizzaria: Owners Beg Police To Spare Them

By Jean Lotus (Patch Staff) – Updated Oct 10, 2017 – Across Colorado Patch

Mama bear opens the fridge and pulls out a tray of pizza dough balls for baby to feast on, then opens cabinet storing salami.
A mama black bear and two cubs were caught pawing through pizza dough on overnight surveillance video at Antonio’s Real New York Pizza in Estes Park Oct. 8. The restaurant’s owners posted the black and white video on Facebook Sunday with a note begging the Estes Park Police Dept. and Colorado Parks and Wildlife not to euthanize the animals.

“All they want is calories with which to hibernate,” owner Antonio DeSousa wrote. “We have to come up with a better set of deterrents than creating rules which ensure their euthanization based on the need to eat.”

Western Towns Try to Stop Hungry Bears from Causing Havoc

09/18/2017 – Huffpost

In bear country, cities and counties are trying to keep bears out of town by adopting ordinances that require residents to keep their trash secure.

BOULDER, Colo. —

On a recent morning that was chilly with the first nip of fall, Brenda Lee went looking for knocked-over trash cans. She drove her car slowly through alleyways on the west side of this Colorado city, close to where streets end and the Rocky Mountains begin. The damage wasn’t hard to find.

On every block, it seemed, at least one trash can was lying on its side, spewing its contents into the street. The mess was a telltale sign that a black bear had toppled the can and clawed through the garbage looking for scraps.

Conflicts between humans and bears are increasing here and across the Western U.S. as more people move to and vacation in the bear country. Climate change could make the situation worse by disrupting bear habitat.

Somehow the nuisance caused by bears needs to be stopped.

But how?

C Tech Corporation has got a solution to keep bears away from human dwellings.

At C Tech Corporation has developed non- toxic & non- hazardous formulation!

RodrepelTM is a low-toxic, non-hazardous aversive. RodrepelTM is a perfect blend of smart technology and green chemistry. This product helps to keep the bears away from the application.
