Impact of Rats on Rice Production

Rats are the major agricultural pest across Asia. Rats are found in the irrigated rice crops, all seasons are favorable for rat’s reproduction as well as crop damage. Easy availability of food, water, shelter, and safety are the factors which provide them with optimum breeding conditions.

The rice field rats feed at night with the highest activity and at day time they are found among vegetation, maturing fields etc. The rice field rats pull the transplanted plants and they also chop down the young seedlings. At the heading stage when the panicles are visible, the rats feed on them and during ripening stage; they feed on developing rice grains.

Rat damage in the crops can be observed by the following sypmtoms:

  • Missing germinating seeds
  • Damaged young seedlings
  • Missing of plants
  • Irregular cuttings of stem
  • Chewed ripening grains
  •  Grain maturity delay
  • Missing of  grains
  • Missing of  panicles

In the traditional farming system, the rats generally cause chronic losses to production in the order of 5-10% per annum. Today it is not unusual for the farmers with smallholder rice farm to report chronic yield losses of 25-30% per annum. In many areas, farmers refuse from planting the second rice crop because of the damage done by rats.

In Asia, there is 5% of rice production loss which amounts to approximately 30 million; enough to feed about 200 million people each year. Post-harvest and pre-harvest losses are probably similar; from this it is clear that rats play an important role in influencing food security and poverty alleviation programs for the poor.  Rodent also causes some dangerous diseases which can affect human health badly.

Let’s have a look at some of the evidence,

 ‘Di lang leptospirosis! Rat damages Negos rice farms

Farmers in Negros Occidental lost some P8.4 million to rats that infested some 703 hectares of rice farms there from July to August, the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist said.

Provincial Agriculturist Japhet Masculino said crop damage was monitored in four barangays in San Enrique, 11 in Valladolid, and three in Bago City in southern Negros Occidental; and four barangays of Cadiz City in the north.

This affected 507 farmers with a combined rice field area of 703.66 hectares, the OPA said.

Bago City, considered the rice bowl of Negros Occidental, sustained the highest losses at P6.06 million, with 344 farmers and 467.24 hectares affected.

In Valladolid, 89 farmers with 113 hectares of rice farms sustained P1.6 million in losses while in San Enrique, 61 farmers with 112.45 hectares lost P473, 514.

Meanwhile, in Cadiz, 13 farmers with 10.97 hectares sustained P226, 830 in losses.

 Oh rats! They’re eating away at our rice

 KEPALA BATAS: Penang’s padi fields are facing a growing and gnawing rat menace that began after the disastrous flooding of the mainland last November.

The ricefield rat (Rattus argentiventer), which can produce five to 10 offspring each month, has been ravaging padi fields in Kepala Batas.

To date, these rats have decimated crops in nearly 29ha in Paya Keladi belonging to 50 farmers, said Integrated Agriculture Development Area (IADA) Penang director Mohd Nazri Abu Seman.

Traditional approaches to rodent population and damage management have relied on direct reduction of populations using fumigation, rodenticide baits, rodent traps which is of no use.

We need to come up with the solution to increase agricultural need.

We, at C Tech Corporation, manufacture a range of extremely low toxicity, extremely low hazard, and environment-friendly pest repellent products.

Our products are a blend of green chemistry and smart technology.

Our product Rodrepel™ is an extremely low toxic, low hazard 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 a solid masterbatch, liquid concentrate, lacquer, and wood polish additive.

Our   Rodrepel™ masterbatch can be incorporated in the agricultural films, polymer mulches, greenhouse films, polymer sprinklers, irrigation pipes, plastic parts from pumps and tractors used in the fields.

The product available in liquid concentrate can be diluted in paints and can be applied to already installed cables and wires, fence and tree guards, the coating of walls and other entry points. The liquid concentrate is compatible with all kinds of paints and solvents.

The already installed cables, pipes, and other application can be coated with our lacquer to protect them from the pests gnawing on this application and thus preventing the damage. The lacquer is a transparent product and it does not wear off easily.

The wood polish additive can be blended with wood polish and applied on the wooden articles and furniture.

Our newly developed product is in the form of a spray which is easy to use the product. It can be sprayed on the infested area to repel the rodents and prevent them from entering.

By using our products, you can get an effective and long-lasting solution against rodent nuisance.

Rodent nuisance in offices

Your office provides an exceptional shelter for mice; it hides them from the cold weather and protects them from predators. To add to this with all the food you leave behind, your office is like a giant all-you-can-eat buffet.

There are many ways in which a mouse, or rat, can get into your office. Mice are very flexible creatures, able to run and jump at great lengths, as well as climb almost any surface. A young mouse can squeeze through a gap as small as a finger ring.

One way in which mice can navigate their way into your workplace is through connections between different buildings such as water pipes, cables, and other underground methods. This allows rats and mice to quickly move between different buildings with ease.

If a mouse/rat can’t fit through a hole they will gnaw at it with their teeth until they can. Their teeth are very sharp and strong and can gnaw through almost anything and it needs to be kept in check failing to which their jaw might get stuck. This can include some metals, especially when it’s old and weak such as water pipes.

Once inside, mice can find their way around using ‘mouse motorways’ we have created like cable risers, false ceilings, false floors, lift shafts – quick ways to travel long distances in search for food.

Another way mice navigate their way into your office is through food pallets. If a food preparation plant has an infestation of rats or mice then this can quickly spread to other areas. If a mouse finds its way onto a truck transporting food, it will no doubt explore the environment of the new area they have traveled to. All mice need to survive is shelter and minimal food and water, plus they can multiply within months.

Rodents such as rats and mice can spread diseases through their droppings. They leave a mess anywhere and everywhere, including your keyboard and phone. You don’t want to be touching that first thing on a Monday morning. On top of this mice and rat urine is also one of the main instigators of the spread of rodent-borne diseases.

Mice are very neophilic creatures; it is in their nature to explore – especially with their teeth. They gnaw at items in search of food, gain passage, or just to keep their teeth in check.

Being in an office environment this curiosity can lead to rats and mice chewing on the billions of cables in your office. This can be anywhere from keyboard and phone wires to internet and server cables.

One of the potential downfalls of rodents gnawing at the wires in your office is the potential to start fires.  By chewing on the wires, the mice leave the rubber casing open, which can lead to the short-circuiting and catching alight.

On top of the potential fire hazard having mice in your office create a risk of losing work.  Nowadays everything is done on computers, having a mouse gnawing its way through the power cables can result in computer failure leading to loss of work.

Let us look at look at some of the evidences:

Rats Sack Buhari from Office, Now Works From Home

August 22, 2017, PM News

President Muhammadu Buhari will work from home after rodents damaged his official office during a more than 100-day overseas medical absence, a presidential spokesman disclosed on Tuesday.

The rodents damaged furniture and air conditioning fittings in the president’s official Abuja office while he was in London receiving treatment

But government spokesman Garba Shehu said the office required renovation after damage was done to the furniture and air conditioning in his absence.

He told the BBC the president had a “well-equipped” office at home that he could work “perfectly” from.

Manhattan post office overrun by RATS as rodents devour parcels

By  Nina Golgowski , 22 December 2011

With 16.5 billion letters, packages and cards expected through the U.S. Postal Service this holiday season, the last obstacle senders might expect their packages to face, are thieving rats.

A post office in Manhattan is fighting a rat infestation leaving chewed boxes and envelopes that carries any item found edible, by both human and rodent taste. 

Packages found deliverable despite their outside damage of visible gnawing and gaping holes are showing up in the hands of their recipients as mere shells.

The little animals can smell the chocolate and goodies,’ Maureen Marion, a USPS spokeswoman for the North East told the New York Times, whose office has found the most reported damaged packages.

On Monday the post office changed its usual visitation by an exterminator from every two weeks to once a week.

Ms Marion says that for items ‘damaged in handling,’ unless they were insured, there is no ability for compensation, ‘regardless of the nature of the damage.’

It is a high time that we take appropriate action to control the rodent menace in offices.

Seemingly innocuous attacks by mice 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 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, ecofriendly and long lasting solution.

A solution involving using the mechanism of repellence will be the best way to go about this as it will mean that the rodents are kept away from the application in the long run.

We at C Tech Corporation are in a unique position to provide solutions to the problems caused by these creatures.

At C Tech Corporation we make use of Mother Nature’s gift of senses to these rodents in developing an extremely low toxic and low hazard formulation!

RodrepelTM is an extremely low-toxic, and low hazard rodent aversive repellent. 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 is compliant with RoHS, RoHS2, RoHS3, REACH, NEA, EU BPR and is FIFRA exempted. Our ecofriendly products do not kill the target species but only repel them.

The products are available in the form of masterbatch which can be incorporated in pipes, films, cables etc while manufacturing. This would result in the final cable or wire being rodent repellent. This would be an efficient way of deterring the rodents from chewing the cables and wires and thus negate the possibility of a short circuit. While the RodrepelTM liquid concentrate (diluted in paints) and RodrepelTM lacquer solution can be coated over the applications which need protection.

The RodrepelTM rodent repellent spray can be used by anyone and is an easy to use product. It can be sprayed in the offices, canteens, storage rooms, washrooms, even on the electrical components and devices from offices, etc. to keep the rodents away from office premises.

Our products provide a safe and environmentally friendly solution to avoid rodent infestation in office.

Rodents: The unwelcome visitors in garden

Rodents are known as the scourge of many gardens. Mice, rats, and many other rodents not only cause damage from tunneling through the lawn and garden, but they can also eventually enter your home after colonizing the garden.

Rodents are the unwelcome visitors in the garden. Like any other living creature, rodents are in search of food, water and shelter, garden simply appears to be the best place for rodents to multiply and thrive.

Do Rodents eat plants?

Yes, rodents eat garden plants and they are especially fond of seeds, therefore a newly planted garden seeds are a favorite target for them.

Rodents not only destroy the hard work by eating the plant in the garden but they can also infect the garden with many serious diseases and pathogens. Disease like the salmonellosis can be spread by rat’s droppings including Leptospirosis disease. Once the garden is infected by the rat’s droppings, watering the plant can spread the bacteria from the ground and can further spread onto leaves and fruit

The specific areas of the garden to check for rodent infestations are:

  • Sheds: Rats and gophers tunnel under sheds and set up home for them.
  • Garbage bins: Garbage bins are the most attractive place for the rodents as it provides them waste food.
  •  Wood Piles: Wood piles are the most attractive places for rodents to build their nests.
  • Bird feeders: Birds drop seeds in the garden, which can attract the rodents. The seeds which are stored can be attractive to many rodents.

Let us have a look at some of the evidence for rodent’s nuisance in garden,

Hundreds of rats swarm Cork woman’s garden leaving her family in fear

Amanda Feeney from Killala Gardens in Knocknaheeny, Cork, said that she can’t even hang her laundry out as the rodents have taken over.

The mum of three children under eight, claims that illegal dumping in the area is causing the problem with cars pulling up and chucking black bags full of rubbish into the estate.

The problem is so bad that she had to get rid of her two dogs as the rats would fight to get their food and frighten them off.

They have eaten through her wheelie bin, her garden shed, climbed her back wall and roam freely around her front and back gardens, leaving her terrified.

Rat problem forces community garden in Harlem to be shut down

HARLEM, Manhattan (WABC) —

Too many rats have forced community leaders to shut down a garden in Harlem.

People in the neighborhood say it all started when a building was being torn down, and that sent the rats over.

The rats are bold and unafraid because they definitely outnumber the farmers. The rats came over when an old abandoned church was demolished across the street.

“And at some point they start crossing the street and jumping into the garden,” said neighbor Alejandro Ibanez. “And I could see them digging and trying to find their way in.”

The rats have taken up residence and so the rare green space where children played, neighbors met and families barbecued, is closed.

Traditional approaches to rodent population and damage management have relied on direct reduction of populations using rodenticide baits or rodent traps which is of no use.

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 Sigmodonhispidis.

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. 

Notably, the cotton rat in the wild is now recognized as a primary host of hantavirus in the southeastern United States.

Cotton rats prefer dense cover 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. 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 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. They may damage a variety of crops, including 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.

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.

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 a 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 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, ecofriendly and long lasting solution.

These rodents play a vital role of our ecosystem. These cotton rats are useful as an important animal model for 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.

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

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

RodrepelTM is also available in form of liquid solution, lacquer, and sprays.

The RodrepelTM lacquer is a proper solution as a topical application to apply on fencing of trees and lawns. Lacquers do not interfere with the aesthetic properties of the application.

Liquid concentrate can be diluted in paints and applied on surfaces while sprays are an easy to use products.

Rodrepel™ 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, EU BPR, NEA, REACH compliant and FIFRA exempted.

Car damage: Blame the rodents!

Woodchucks occasionally eat garden or field crops and can cause considerable damage in a very short period. But have you seen woodchucks damaging vehicles??

Surprised?? Well, it seems they have developed a taste towards the car components besides seeking shelter under the hood.

The groundhog, also known as a woodchuck, is a rodent belonging to the group of large ground squirrels known as marmots.

They are usually seen in our fields and gardens burrowing and making tunnels but apparently, they are found under the hoods biting our car components.

The automotive wirings are made of food-grade plastic for a long time now. These make the parts easier to recycle and to meet sustainability targets set by the different government policies. Though ‘green’, these wirings give off a faint smell when warm, which attracts the rodents and they chew up cars.

The soy-based content on wiring and fuel lines attract the pests turning vehicles into a moveable feast for pests.

News reported were:

Woodchucks Destroyed Paul Ryan’s Chevy Suburban

July 19, 2018

While its common for rodents like mice, rats, and squirrels to chew on engine wiring, it’s less common to hear about woodchucks chowing down on this vehicular “delicacy.” Earlier this month, however, House Speaker Paul Ryan had a personal encounter with some destructive groundhogs.

During a speech to The Economic Club of Washington D.C., he expressed sadness over his Chevy Suburban’s demise. “My car was eaten by animals. It’s just dead.”

Ryan went on to articulate the woodchuck ordeal. He had parked his Suburban at his mother’s house in Wisconsin for the winter. when the engine wasn’t working, he towed it to the dealer. A closer investigation revealed chewed wiring as the cause of the vehicle’s death. Apparently a whole clan of woodchucks had been living in the Suburban’s underbody, to keep warm during the chilly season.

Woodchuck responsible for starting car fire in Steamboat Springs euthanized

Firefighters were worried the woodchuck would start another fire

By Matt Stensland | Steamboat Today │May 22, 2017 

The woodchuck had climbed into the engine compartment of a Toyota 4Runner that was being stored at a ranch.

After the new owner picked up the car, it caught fire while he was driving to the Department of Motor Vehicles to get it registered.

The driver pulled into the Steamboat Today parking lot, and the woodchuck was seen fleeing the scene.

What’s under the hood? A groundhog!

Lou Whitmire, Reporter | May 18, 2016

MANSFIELD – You can’t just chuck out a woodchuck.

That’s what Carolyn Cyrus learned after a groundhog decided to burrow into the engine compartment of her 2015 Honda CR-V on Tuesday evening.

She got into her car about 7 p.m. Tuesday to go to Drug Mart, and was backing up when she noticed she had no power steering.

She went back inside to get her husband, Roy, who came outside and confirmed the lack of power steering.

Her husband lifted the hood and found the culprit hiding in the engine: a huge groundhog.

“After prodding and poking that thing, he still wouldn’t come out,” Carolyn Cyrus said.

So they put a bowl of dog food outside the car, hoping to lure it out.

Wednesday morning, the dog food and groundhog were gone, Cyrus said.

That was the good news. The bad news?

Her car needs to be repaired. She found three pieces of chewed wire on the ground, and she doesn’t know how much it’s going to cost. She’s not sure if critters crawling up in the engine are covered under the warranty or insurance. The car was towed to the dealership where she purchased it, and she is concerned about when she will get it back.

You can buy the most dependable car on the earth and still face these problems. So what can you do to this?

Are these little critters taking over your attic?

Innocent and playful might be the words you associate with squirrels. But just as these critters can be cute 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. 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 into the attic space. Attics and soffit areas make ideal nesting location for squirrels. Their height provides protection from predators and humans and allows squirrels to remain warm and dry through inclement cold weather.

Squirrels will commonly cause damage to attic insulation or will 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.  Once inside, their nesting habits and fondness for gnawing down their incisors 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 innocuous 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 use of toxic chemical additives, trapping. Along the years each of these tried and tested methods have failed at some level due to a variety of reasons including 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 is ensuring that these rodents are kept away from our attics.

 A solution involving using the mechanism of repellence will be the best way to go about this as it will mean that the rodents are kept away from the attics in the long run.

RodrepelTM a rodent and animal repellant by C Tech Corporation is ideal.RodrepelTM is a low-toxic, low-hazard rodent repellant available in the form of masterbatch which can be incorporated in the cable sheathing during polymer processing. RodrepelTM in liquid form can be coated on the cable insulation to provide short-term protection from rodents. RodrepelTM lacquer can be applied as a topical application on the attics and also on the already installed cables. 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.

Our newly developed products,  Rodrepel™ Rodent Repellent Spray is an easy to use product which can be sprayed on wires and cables, electronic appliances, cabinets, so as to as avoid the rodents from entering them.

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

Notorious Beavers!!

Castor Canadensis commonly known as ‘Beaver’ is a semi-aquatic rodent. They spend most of their time in rivers and streams. Beavers are pure vegetarian; they live on fresh leaves, barks, stems, branches, and twigs. Cattail and water lily tubers are their favorite food. They have very sharp incisors which grow throughout their life.

Hence to keep them in check they chew on any kind of tree, wooden objects and sometimes on polymer pipes connected to swimming pools, sewer lines, drainage pipes etc.  

Beavers are well known for their dam building skills. They create dams to raise the water level to build their home or lodges in water. Because of this engineering skill they cause flooding to house, roads, athletic fields, yards, timberlands, croplands etc. They also cause blockages to dam canals, streams, drainage, pipes, sewer lines etc. Because of this many fish cannot reach their traditional spawning ground.  Also trees die because of this prolonged flooding.

Here are some incidences that show how beavers have affected our lives:

County Airport dealing with ongoing beaver problem

Jonathan Richie │December 21, 2018

BURNETT COUNTY–– “It’s been frustrating, so we had to bring in a guy to come in and do some beaver trapping,” Airport Manager Chuck Shultz told the infrastructure committee last week. “It’s a private trapper that the DNR in Grantsburg suggested.”

“This is a pretty common thing for Burnett County,” Rod said. “It’s hard to tell how many are left out there.”

Rod explained that the beavers live in a 30-40 acre area surrounding the airport. In that area, they have built five different dams.

Shultz said the dams create giant pools of water at the airport and the nuisance beavers are the main concern.

Homeowners and industry struggling with beaver dam flooding

‘If it wasn’t for people taking care of these beavers, these roads would be flooded constantly,’ says trapper

CBC News · August 7, 2017

‘They can cause real damage’

The situation is getting so bad, that even people who are used to dealing with nearby beavers are frustrated.

Rhonda Hall has lived on her property in Lively for 25 years. She says beaver dams have flooded her property to the point where her septic field and well water are at risk.

“People don’t understand it. They think beavers are cute and whatever,” she says.

“But they can cause real damage.”

Biologists classify beavers as ‘keystone species’. Beavers build dams in water and create wetlands upon which many species and endangered species depend. They purify and control water by filtering silt from water bodies in which they live. High water table, less erosion and cleaner water results from these beaver dams. They can also prevent forest fire from spreading in neighboring region. Beaver dams also protect downstream spawning areas from sedimentation and increase salmon and trout populations.

Hence to use conventional methods like electric fencing, exclusion fencing, frightening devices, toxicants, fumigants, toxic rodenticides would not be appropriate. As these methods directly harm beavers.

C Tech Corporation can offer a solution to overcome damage caused by beavers. Rodrepel™ is a low toxic, low hazard, non-carcinogenic and environmentally safe, anti rodent additive. The masterbatch of Rodrepel™ can be incorporated in polymer pipes, silage bags, agriculture films, mulches etc.

Rodrepel™ liquid concentrate can be added to paints which can be applied to fencing of trees, house, croplands etc.

Rodrepel™ lacquer can be directly applied to the fences, installed pipe, wires and cables, etc.

Rodrepel™ does not kill but repel. It is engineered using unique set of complex compounds. It follows 6 pronged strategy which is extremely effective on rodents like squirrel, rat, beaver, gopher, paca, marmot etc.

Rodrepel™ is cost effective, inert, 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, EU BPR, NEA compliant and FIFRA exempted.

Rats in hotels

People visit hotels to relax and rejuvenate. Hotel rooms have everything you need for a pleasant stay. However, the tiny notorious species commonly found in hotels and restaurants are enough to ruin your vacation leaving you with nothing but exasperation.

The species explore each and every room; mostly kitchens; and are responsible for damages. Yes, I am talking about the rodents like rats and mice.

People visit hotels to relax and rejuvenate. Hotel rooms have everything you need for a pleasant stay. However, the tiny notorious species commonly found in hotels and restaurants are enough to ruin your vacation leaving you with nothing but exasperation. The species explore each and every room; mostly kitchens; and are responsible for damages. Yes, I am talking about the rodents like rats and mice.

An encounter with a pest in a hotel can ruin a guest’s stay and result in negative comments spreading a bad reputation for the hotel, seriously affecting business. An infestation of pests can also result in authorities taking legal action to ensure public safety, especially if the kitchens, restaurants, and bars are affected.

Nearly 40% of the mammals species are Rodents. Rodents are characterized by two pairs of continuously growing incisors in the upper and lower jaws which need to be kept short by gnawing. Rats and mice are attracted by food supplies and do not venture far from their shelter or nesting sites. Rats and mice are capable of a rapid increase in population given an abundant food supply; due to the number of litters they are capable of producing and the time to maturity. They also are in constant search of places that would provide shelter from predators. They need dark and warm places to hide. This is the reason why they invade our hotels and restaurants.

Rodent presence in hotels can be indicated through the signs they leave. Droppings of various shapes and sizes; smudge marks along runs caused by their oily fur; small entry spots; gnawing on clothes, building materials, etc. are the signs which indicate rodent presence in hotels.

Rodents are the carriers for many diseases, including Salmonellosis, Leptospirosis, Toxoplasmosis, Lyme disease, rat-bite fever. They can transport bacteria, such as salmonella, on their bodies and contaminate food sources and kitchen surfaces.

Rodents usually enter the hotels through poorly sealed heating and cooling air conditioning ducts, laundry area, drainage pipe holes, etc. The spacious area like hotels is available for them to accommodate and requires great efforts to completely eradicate them.

Hotels have to suffer great economic losses due to rodent menace. Rodent sighting in hotels can badly affect the hotel’s name and reputation. Therefore hotels must pay special attention to maintaining hygiene and also eradicating the rodent infestation.

Rodent Caught On Camera At Disneyland

CBS Los Angeles │May 22, 2018

ANAHEIM (CBSLA) — Critter concerns at the Happiest Place on Earth. A visitor caught a rodent on camera scurrying across the floor of one of the Disneyland resort’s hotels.

As CBSLA’s Stacey Butler reports, Disneyland tonight is taking some serious action.

The cell phone video was taken by a guest Monday night inside the lobby of the Hearthstone Lounge at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.

“I think it’s pretty bad to get to that state that they have rodents running around in the main foyer,” said guest Raelynn Flatters.

Guests pouring out of Disneyland Tuesday night were shocked that rodents appeared to run around the popular lounge.

“That’s disgusting,” said a visitor. “And I bet they weren’t named Mickey either.”

The Hearthstone Lounge normally serves drinks and food all day and night but for now it’s shut down.

Lincoln man said he found rodent nest in hotel bed

By Carly Jensen | 1011now.com │January 23, 2018

A Lincoln man said he found a rat’s nest in his bed while staying at a hotel.

Russell Fletcher said he was driving back to Lincoln from DJaying a show in another town when he decided to stop at the Syracuse Inn and Suites.

But later that night, he said he awaken by something in the bed with him.

“I feel something started about my back neck area,” Fletcher said.  “And then by the time I fully woke up, I could feel it moving around.“

Russell said it was a mouse

He said he kicked the bedding off the bed and found a nest and rodent droppings in one of the bed’s corners.  He said he also found dried up insect parts on the other bed’s frame.

Hotels do need effective and durable repellents. Hence a permanent solution is available with   C Tech Corporation in the form of product called Rodrepel™. Rodrepel™ is an extremely low at toxicity, non-carcinogenic and non-mutagenic compound, low hazard, non-dangerous and environmentally safe rodent repellent.

Our product is available in the form of a masterbatch, which can be directly incorporated in the application while manufacturing and in the form of lacquer, paint additives, wood polish additives that can be directly applied as a top coat on the surface of application. Rodrepel™ does not kill but only keeps the rodents away by making use of the sensory mechanisms.

Liquid concentrate can be mixed in paints in a pre-determined ratio and be applied to the interior and exterior of hotels, ceilings, storage rooms, kitchens, guestrooms, washrooms, etc. to repel rodents from the area required.

Our product in the form of lacquer can be directly applied to the already installed application such as furniture, attics, wooden fences, sewage pipes, wires, cables, etc. The lacquer is compatible with most of the surfaces like metal, wood, concrete, polymer, ceramic etc.

Wood polish additive can be mixed with the wood polish and applied on the wooden articles and furniture from the hotels.

Masterbatch can be incorporated into polymeric applications like water pipes, wires, cables, polymeric equipment from hotels, etc. This would result in the final application being rodent repellent.

Our newly developed product is in the form of spray. The RodrepelTM rodent repellent spray can be used by anyone and easy to use.

The product functions from a distance due to the peculiar smell which generates a typical fear response in rodents. Rodents are further restricted from biting the applications treated with our products due to advanced mechanisms like sensory stimuli modification etc.

Further, they acquire a fear towards the Rodrepel™ containing products which make them stay away from the application. Thus, Rodrepel™ actually helps in modifying rodent behavior. Rodents being social animals also communicate the bad experience to their population in the vicinity. Thus using Rodrepel™ can give a long term relief to hotel businesses from rodents.

Rodrepel™ is a product resulting from smart technology and green chemistry. Hence doesn’t harm any target or non-target species in any way, just keeps rodents away. We are committed to our environment & we believe that no harm must be caused to animals or to the environment.

You can thus contribute to the environment by using our products.

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?

At C Tech Corporation we provide you with an effective solution. Our product RodrepelTM 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.

RodrepelTM is available in the form of a spray, liquid concentrate, lacquer, wood polish additive, masterbatch.

The RodrepelTM rodent repellent spray is an easy to use product and compatible with most of the surfaces. It can be used by anyone and since it is based on green technology, it is safe to be used around food products.

Liquid concentrate can be mixed in paints in a pre-determined ratio and be applied to the interior and exterior of restaurants, ceilings, storage rooms, washrooms, etc. to repel rodents from the area required.

Our product in the form of lacquer can be directly applied to the already installed application such as furniture, attics, wooden fences, sewage pipes, wires, cables, etc. The lacquer is compatible with most of the surfaces like metal, wood, concrete, polymer, ceramic etc.

Masterbatch can be incorporated into polymeric applications like water pipes, wires, cables, polymeric equipment from restaurants, etc. This would result in the final application being rodent repellent.

Hence by using RodrepelTM in the restaurants, rodent damage can be prevented effectively and considerably.

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.

C Tech Corporation can offer a solution to overcome the damage caused by squirrels. RodrepelTM  is an anti-rodent and animal aversive which is extremely low in toxicity and extremely low hazard, environmentally safe solution. It is engineered using a unique set of complex compounds.
