Rodents and pests littering hotel business

The number of hotels infested by rodents is increasing day by day. The adverse impacts of such invasions by these notorious pests not only affect the hotel owners but also the travelers. Hotels have been facing problems due to rodents since long, but the use of appropriate measures to get rid of them is rarely seen.

One certainly visits the hotel recommendation websites for reviews about the desired hotel for a stay. Many complaints regarding rodents breeding in hotel rooms are found there. Less are the complaints about the room pricing, while more are about the pests and rodents enjoying their long vacations there. However negative customer reviews and feedbacks due to rodent encounters can seriously damage the hotel reputation which is highly undesirable in any hospitality industry.

You plan for a vacation stay in these hotels thinking you will rest and relax, but then you are offered with terrible nightmares due to pests like rodents and bedbugs.

Though this doesn’t mean one needs to stop vacationing. Instead, the hotels must implement methods to stop the occurrence of such scenarios.

A new research study reveals some interesting findings of the economic impact of rodents and bed bugs on the hotel industry.

The researchers put some hard numbers on the economic impact of online reports of bed bugs in the hotels, as well as the value of protective services. Results show that on average, a single report of a rodent or bed bug in recent travelers review lowers the value of a hotel room by $38 and $23 per room per night for business and leisure travelers respectively.

Rodents are one of the most widespread groups of mammals, found all over the world. One pair of rodent can give rise to about 2,000 in one year. Business in which food is stored or handled is especially prone to rodent invasion. Hotels are one of those. Rodents not only cause damage to food but also to the decors, electrical insulations, plumbing and structures in the hotels.

They obtain access to the hotels from windows and vent. Even utility pipes, electrical conduit, drains, water and gas lines, and communication cables generally have large openings that permit entry to these creatures.

From the moment they set their foot in a hotel, it never takes long before they invade every single room. Light, being their biggest enemy, rodents hide in dark places in the hotel rooms. They hide in the closets and attics.

In hotels, specific problem areas include poorly sealed heating and air conditioning ducts.

Hotel kitchens are equipped with several refrigerators. Mice and rats are sometimes found using freezer and refrigerator compressor areas for harborage and water.

Though carnivores, they tend to chew all kinds of materials so as to restrict the growth of their incisors.

Rodent-infested goods in hotel pantries commonly include cereals, flour and baking mixes, waxed carton drinks, dried fruits and nuts, paper goods, charcoal briquettes, and damaged goods. As rodents serve as vectors of a variety of diseases like leptospirosis, swine dysentery, brucellosis, sarcoptic mange, tuberculosis and many more, such contamination of food items by them is very dangerous.

In spacious structures like hotels, complete eradication of rodents can be an uphill task. In order to maintain the reputation of the hotel precautionary measures are must which would repel rats from entering the hotel territory.

Rodents Removed at Radisson, Kitchen Reopens After Infestation

January 13, 2017, Local news, Florida

The kitchen at the Raddison Riverside Hotel in downtown Rochester is back up and running after a rodent infestation there.

The Monroe County Health Department shut down the food operation after it said a routine inspection found a mouse problem.

The Department of Health required a pesticide company to come in a rid the rodents.

Rodent issues force closure at Wyndham Hotel in Deerfield Beach

September 28, 2015, TWC News, New York

Records show a roach issue at the Hotel Astor in South Beach and a rodent issue at the Wyndham Hotel in Deerfield Beach.

Both places had food service areas shut.

Young boy bitten by rat in hotel

A Lake District hotel faces legal notice after two members of a family, including a three year old, were bitten by rat.

May 20, 2006, England, BBC News

Steve Harris was with his wife and son Cameron at the scenic Windermere Hydro hotel, which overlooks Bowness. Mr. Harris, from Dudley, West Midlands, says he and his son required hospital treatment after the November incident. The hotel said it offered the family a full refund and had done all it could to control pests. The family said they had been traumatized by the incident, which left their son requiring steroid treatment.

Hotels do need effective and durable repellents. Then why not use RodrepelTM, an extremely low at toxicity, non-carcinogenic and non-mutagenic compounds, non-hazardous, 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 form of lacquer that can be directly applied as a top coat on the surface of application.

RodrepelTM does not kill but only keeps the rodents away by making use of the sensory mechanisms. 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 dermal irritation, extremely bitter taste, sensory stimuli modification etc. Further, they acquire a fear towards the RodrepelTM containing products which makes them stay away from the application. Thus, RodrepelTM 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 along-term relief to hotel businesses from rodents.

Rodent damage to cars

One often plans a lot before buying it, let it be the car model or the car type! After these all efforts made to buy a car, imagine the car being attacked by pest like rodents! Such a mishap isn’t it!

Nearly every car is susceptible to have small holes or gaps. But the rodents are able to make an entry when through such tiny holes.

Mice and rats do not hibernate, so they’re an all-season nuisance. And the longer and colder the winter nights get, the more attractive your home, garage, or workplace becomes to these rodents. Mice and rats are always looking for food, as well as somewhere warm and dry to nest. Since damage can be caused very quickly, you need to be on the lookout for early warning signs of a rodent infestation in your vehicle. Droppings under the hood are an obvious clue, but you should also watch for items that may have been dragged in, including twigs and leaves for building a nest and edibles like pet food or bird seed. If you suspect that you have a rodent issue, you can do a cursory inspection of your vehicle and its surrounding area. Check under and around your vehicle with a flashlight for droppings and small urine puddles, and look in your engine compartment for chew marks. You’ll soon notice if something isn’t quite right.

Vehicles possess the ideal attributes that attract rodents, including shelter and built-up warmth from commutes. With rodent populations well established in virtually every neighborhood it’s not just a matter of chance, but a matter of time, before a home encounters an infestation.

The rodents chew the wires and cables, fuel reservoirs, ducts, cable carriers, seats, etc. from the cars causing a nuisance. Replacement of these vital parts from the cars is expensive.

Many examples of rodent damage to the cars are available and a few can be seen below:

Class-Action Lawsuits: Car Wires Attract Rodents, Cause Thousands in Damage

By Susan Hogan and Meredith Royster
Published at 10:50 PM EDT on Apr 5, 2017

A class-action lawsuit was filed this week on behalf of thousands of Toyota owners who say rodents are eating car wires coated with soy-based materials, causing thousands of dollars in damage.

“Toyota incorporates soy- or bio-based ingredients in the wiring that bait rodents – including rats, squirrels and other animals,” the lawsuit says. Honda is facing a similar suit.

In an effort to reduce waste, some car manufacturers wrap wires in a soy-based material.

Rupert Welch of Falls Church, Virginia, was surprised to learn what caused his car trouble three times over the course of a few weeks. Rodents had a feast at his expense, causing $10,000 in damage.

“I took the car back, but the next day all the lights went on, and the car wouldn’t start, and I had to call a tow truck,” Welch said.

Some car owners want the auto manufacturers to foot the bill for the repairs.

Rat damaged car engine leads to $15K repair bill
Gnawing problem ‘the worst we’ve ever seen’

By Cathy Kearney · CBC News · Posted: Sep 29, 2017

Juan Recacarren has been fixing cars in his Richmond garage for more than 20 years, but in all that time he hadn’t seen the scale of damage rats could cause — until this spring.

The owner of a Porsche Panamera had stored his car in a garage over the winter — but when it didn’t start up in the spring, it was towed to Recacarren’s shop.

“We found lots of damage in the wiring and engine bay — there was a lot of damage in the suspension area, and some of the exhaust wiring,” said Recacarren. “Basically there was damage everywhere.”

The damage so extensive, the repair bill totaled $15,000.

Different ineffective methods are used to keep the pests away from the cars. Various sauces, electronic devices, mothballs etc. are used. But they have failed from preventing the rodents from gnawing the car wires and other components.

We at C Tech Corporation have come up with a viable solution to 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 is compliant with ROHS, ROHS2, ISO, REACH, APVMA, NEA, and FIFRA exempted.

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 cables used for various applications to make them rodent resistant. The masterbatch can be incorporated in polymeric wires and cables, electric switches and appliances while they are manufactured.

The already installed cables, electric junction boxes, cable carriers, and ducts, etc. from the cars can be coated with our lacquer to protect them from the pests gnawing these applications and thus preventing car accidents. The lacquer is a transparent product and it does not wear off easily.

The liquid concentrate can be used by mixing it with the paints in a pre-determined ratio and applying it over the interior and exterior of the cable rooms and control rooms.

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

You could thus contribute to us in using products which are eco-friendly thus causing no damage to the environment.

Power outages due to squirrel

How disgusting it would be if one is to attend an official meeting and cannot get his clothes pressed just for a squirrel disconnected the power supply in his area!

The squirrels are capable of troubling thousands of people at a time when it causes power outages. They are responsible for an impressive number of electrical issues each year.

Each marker represents a documented squirrel-induced power outage since 1987- Credits: The Washington Post

The cables made of polymers attract squirrels. The squirrels get attracted to the texture and smell of the cables. With the help of their incisors, the squirrels gnaw these applications and leave them for no use. They destroy the power cables, signaling cables, automotive cables etc.

Damaged electrical wires can split and cause power failures. A person who comes into contact with chewed electrical wires can be electrocuted, which can cause serious injuries or death. Damaged electrical wires can also spark a fire.

Squirrels also damage bird feeders, flowers and vegetable gardens in the process of foraging for food. Squirrels gain access to homes, and especially attics, through small openings and other structural weaknesses.

Squirrel Causes Power Outage
By Gillian Pomplun March 14, 2018 SW News

CRAWFORD COUNTY – Like many, the offices of the Crawford County Independent newspaper were without power for a time in the morning of Wednesday, Feb. 28.

“An evil squirrel got into the substation in Seneca and took out both circuits,” according to Scott Reigstad, an Alliant Energy spokesperson. “It wasn’t a planned outage on our part, and we’re not sure about the squirrel.”

The outage started at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 28, and lasted until 8:40 a.m. Gays Mills, Soldiers Grove, Ferryville, Mt. Sterling, Seneca, Eastman and Lynxville were without power during this time.

Squirrel takes out power in downtown Nashville

Natalie Allison, USA TODAY NETWORK – Tennessee Published 5:57 p.m. CT Jan. 22, 2018

Some residences and businesses lost power in downtown Nashville late Monday afternoon, thanks to the work of a squirrel.

Though it wasn’t immediately clear how many Nashville Electric Service customers were affected by the early evening outage, it appeared the Metro courthouse was among buildings that lost electricity, causing the city council to temporarily adjourn multiple times.

“Unfortunately, the outage was caused by a squirrel and it took out an entire circuit,” a representative from NES tweeted around 5:45 p.m.

By that time, power had been restored in most areas, though some repairs were still needed.

It also wasn’t immediately clear what NES suspects the squirrel did to cause the outage, though the company noted that “squirrels are one of the top causes for power outages” and “unfortunately wander into places they shouldn’t sometimes.”

Metal armored cables, cables with glass roving etc. were used to prevent the damage caused by rodents to the wires and cables. But since the rodents can easily chew through the metals, these protection methods do not work. Other methods for pest control involve use of mechanical traps which fail to work on a mechanical error. Fumigation of pesticides is done to keep rodents away from the applications. Glue boards are used which are dangerous when children and pets are around. Rodent baits are one of the most dangerous methods used to kill the rodents.

All these methods have proved ineffective and have given no results. A need for use of effective products has aroused.

Is there a solution for this rodent menace?

Nuisance causing invasive rodent: Nutria

There’s this rodent who is overtaking the wetlands. It’s just not dwelling in the wetlands but by its burrowing habits is causing a huge menace!

Scroll down to know more about it!

Nutria is the semi-aquatic rodent which is invading the wetland and is causing a nuisance. Nutria spends half of its life in the water. Nutria is an excellent swimmer that can spend 5 minutes under water without returning to the surface to breathe.

They are found in huge numbers in the wetlands which are a critical part of our natural environment. Wetlands protect shores from wave action and reduce the impacts of floods. Wetlands help keep river levels normal. They accept water during storms and whenever water levels are high. When water levels are low, wetlands slowly release water.

The wetlands absorb pollutants; thus, they filter and purify the surface water improving the water quality. They provide habitat for plants and may contain a wide diversity of life, supporting plants that are found nowhere else.

But these wetlands are threatened by invasive rodents such as nutria. This two-foot-long rodent can grow as large as 20 pounds. It can eat 25% of its own weight every day.

These raccoon-sized rodents from South America have invaded every continent except Antarctica and Australia, and have set up camp in at least 18 US states and are spreading all over rapidly.

Nutria has long incisors that are yellow to orange or orange to red in color.

Nutria can survive between 8 and 10 years in the wild. Nutria are known for devastating marshy ecosystems.  Nutria use their incisors and powerful forefeet to dig under the marsh surface to feed directly on the root mat, leaving the marsh pitted with holes and deep swim canals. They mow down the local vegetation, destroy flood control by burrowing through levees, and edge out native animals that don’t reproduce as quickly. Their burrowing habits weaken infrastructure, which is problematic for flood control systems. Nutria has a huge appetite. The headlines from few of the news is so horrifying that it clearly shows how troublesome these pests must be.

The Sacramento Bee says “Invasive swamp rodent known as nutria has California scrambling to come up with a battle plan”

Ryan Sabalow, The Sacramento Bee Published 2:05 p.m. PT Feb. 24, 2018

About the size of a beagle, they can quickly turn a lush green marsh to a wasteland. They use
their long orange teeth to gnaw through vegetation and reach the succulent bits they crave.
Females can have litters of a dozen or more and become pregnant within 48 hours after giving birth, their fertility adding to the speed with which this South American rodent can fan across alandscape, burrowing into levees and destroying wetlands along the way.

They are called nutria, and right now they’re starting to spread through the waterways leading into the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, the ecologically fragile network of sloughs and rivers that functions as the heart of California’s flood-control and water distribution system.

In other states, taxpayers have spent tens of millions of dollars fighting nutria infestations.

Second-ever nutria reported in Kentucky caught in McCracken

By STEVE VANTREESE Dec 23, 2017 –  The Paducah Sun

The nutria is an invasive rodent larger than a muskrat and smaller than a beaver that could be confused with either native animal. Its round, largely hairless “rat” tail is a giveaway.

The nutria is an invasive semi-aquatic rodent in America, an unwanted nuisance species that hails from South America. It has been found in at least 22 states, but it is recognized as having a foothold with a reproducing population in much less territory, mostly Gulf coastal areas of the Southeast.

The nutria is also known to enter the areas of human dwellings. The menace caused by Nutria has proved destructive to humans and as well to the eco-system. Conventional methods like rodent traps, fumigation, glue boards, rodent baits etc. have proved ineffective.

When the conventional methods have proved ineffective why not use methods which are effective and are of eco-friendly nature.

Rodrepel™ , a C Tech Corporation’s product is an anti-rodent aversive which repels rodents and thus prevents the nuisance caused by them. This product acts through a series of highly developed intricate mechanisms ensuring that rodents are kept away from the target application.

This innovative product is available in masterbatch form, which can be incorporated within the tubes, pipes, agricultural films, wires, and cables etc. The product does not leach out from the polymer matrix, thus preventing soil pollution.

The product in form of liquid concentrate can be mixed with paints and be applied on the interior and exterior of the houses, already installed wires and cables, pipes, house fencing etc. to keep nutria away from human areas.

Our product in lacquer can be coated over wooden fences around wetlands, tree guards, and on a variety of surfaces like metals, concrete, polymer, ceramic etc. which would ensure complete protection against these creatures.

Our product provides a safe and environmentally friendly solution to avoid rodent infestation!

Rodents in schools!

Have you ever heard the rats and the mice taking admission in school??

Shocking right? But yes, rats and mice do take admission in schools, not for the getting educated but to spread nuisance.

The schools have the responsibilities when it comes to the education of students but the schools are also responsible for protecting the health and safety of their students.

Rats and mice seek for food, warmth, water, shelter, and safety which they get in abundance from school.

Rodents can find many numbers of places to hide and to breed; it is always easy for rodents like rats and mice to infiltrate a school because even a small hole can make them enter.

Rats and mice can transmit a number of diseases through contact with them or consumption if the food that rodents have partially eaten, skin contact with rodent’s urine and their droppings can also cause diseases.

Schools should take the possibility of rodent infestation very seriously, especially in the month of winter. Rodents will be much more aggressive in colder seasons about seeking shelter.

The rodents can chew on anything that they see as useful in building their nests. This could be wood, paper, books, electrical appliances, etc. They can even make holes in furniture to stay to make a place to stay.

According to the news articles,

Rat infestation closes Congdon Park school
Updated: Jun 13, 2018, at 5:15 p.m. From the Duluth News Tribune.

A rat infestation has closed the eastern Duluth Congdon Park Elementary School and its grounds for the summer.

The rodents have been spotted entering the drainage system under the gym addition of the school. Hillside burrow entrances have also been found at the back of the building, according to the Duluth school district.

The closure will allow pest control and district staff to clear the area where the rats have been living and eating for some time, including inside the school’s composting bin.

“They enter into — I don’t want to call it a rat buffet — but they had plenty of food, shelter, and water and took up residence,” district facilities manager Dave Spooner said of the composting bin and the burrows.

No rats were found inside the school, he said, but the closure of the building and its grounds make it easier to solve the problem.

The infestation was discovered toward the end of the school year, and pest control workers began addressing it with traps inside lockboxes. So far, about five rats per day have been trapped. Pesticide bait boxes will be set near the drainage system and burrow entrances Friday. The method is compliant with Environmental Protection Agency and Minnesota Department of Health guidelines, district officials said.

Rat infestation forces closure of Duluth elementary school
Updated: June 14, 2018 — 5:00 AM. From Star Tribune

A colony of rats is wreaking havoc at Duluth’s Congdon Park Elementary, prompting district officials to close the school and its playground for the summer.

Since the unwelcome discovery, pest control workers have trapped about five rodents per day near the foundation and drainage system underneath the school gym, said district facilities manager Dave Spooner.

“We’re working to remove them before they can get into the building itself,” Spooner said in a prepared statement. “Having the building and grounds unoccupied will allow us the flexibility to take steps necessary to make that happen.”

The school is located at 3116 E. Superior St., not far from Glensheen mansion.

Food sources that might attract the vermin have been removed.

The school’s composting bin likely played a role. “They enter into — I don’t want to call it a rat buffet — but they had plenty of food, shelter, and water and took up residence,” Spooner told the Duluth News Tribune.

Pesticide bait boxes — called the “least toxic method” — have been laid near burrow entrances located in the hillside at the back of the building to help eradicate the infestation. District officials said those efforts are compliant with state Department of Health and Environmental Protection Agency guidelines.

Signs will be posted around the property to inform neighbors the traps are being used.

Students were released for summer vacation last week, but administrators had remained on the grounds. Scheduled enrichment activities will move to Ordean-East Middle School.

Students complain of rat infestation in high school
Updated: March 27, 2017, 12:39 AM

School officials in Fayette County say they have been trying to exterminate rodents at Sandy Creek High School, but they’re still a problem after more than a month.

One student told Channel 2 Action News that she saw about 40 rats at one time in the field house where student-athletes work out.

A dead rat was found by a student in the weight training room, the news station reported.

The athletes told Channel 2 they are still being forced to work out in the field house, despite all of the rats running around.

Often using pest control services by the school is not very much effective and it can be dangerous to health, thus we need a solution which can be effective and eco-friendly

Usage of pesticides is dangerous for students. The use of pesticides has hampered the neurological development of children. There is evidence for children and others who have been poisoned accidentally consuming pesticides.

New students in the schools: Rats!

The other day the class was disturbed when this pesky rodent entered the classroom and caused a havoc. All the students started running across the classroom and corridor until the rat was caught by the exterminator.

Such a nuisance in a place of discipline is unwanted.

Rodents are smart, versatile, and opportunistic. They find food, water, warmth, shelter, and safety, which are easily available in schools. Food is an especially strong motivator for rodents, as the refuse from snack time, smuggled candy, and cafeteria lunches create significant amounts of edible waste.

Schools are an excellent source of warmth and water for rodents. Even innocuous equipment like art supplies with fabric and construction paper provide ideal nesting material while leaking pipes and drain water supply all the hydration rodents need. Because of the huge areas of most schools, both mice and rats find several places there to safely hide and even breed.

It’s also very easy to for rodents to infiltrate a school because mice are small enough that even a hole the size of an eraser can be used as an entry point. If a school isn’t properly sealed against weather, any cracks, vents or other openings make perfect doorways for these enterprising mammals.

After entering the schools, these rodents chew on different material available in the school, like cardboard boxes, books, art projects, plastic bags and their contents, and electrical wires. They use these materials as food or for nesting. Mice and rats make a mess by leaving their droppings in the areas where they feed. They usually leave smelly trails of their urine and droppings.

The same rats have potential to spread deadly diseases. So, their presence around the little kids is dangerous.

Even after using pest control measures the pests somehow enter the areas of school threatening the school atmosphere. The evidence for the same is the recent incident from the London school.

London school infested with bed bugs twice this year

Officials won’t identify the school because of the social stigma but say the problem has been cleared

Kate Dubinski · CBC News · Posted: Feb 14, 2018

A bed bug infestation at a London school highlights how difficult the pests are to get rid of, and how social inequality is brought into the classroom.

The bugs were found on two occasions at the same school, days apart, in late January, CBC News has learned.

Bed bugs are considered a nuisance by the school board and health unit — gross and annoying, but not a health hazard, much like head lice, officials say.

But head lice are a much more common occurrence and require only that a note be sent home telling parents to check their kids hair.

Students seeing increase in rat sightings at elementary school

By: Carl Willis

Updated: Mar 13, 2018 – 5:51 AM
CONYERS, Ga. – A Rockdale County school is dealing with a rat problem.

Viewers sent in a tip to Channel 2 Action News that there were complaints coming from Sims Elementary School.

Parents told Channel 2’s Carl Willis they are concerned an infestation could be putting their children at risk.

“I don’t think it’s something that they’d hide,” one parent told Willis, not identifying themselves. “It’s a sanitary issue.”

Rockdale County Public Schools confirmed Monday that they’re working to address the issue.

They say previously they saw an increase in signs and sightings of rodents at Sims Elementary, especially where food was being stored improperly.

“I think that’s scary. It’s unsanitary too. It’s very concerning,” mother Sarah Yang told Willis.

“They need to get it cleaned because our kids eat lunch here,” father Cheve Goggins said.

A school district representative said the district is taking steps and seeing some progress to get rid of the rats.

Often using the services of pest control companies is opted by the schools as they find it easier than dealing with the pest themselves. But these service providers are themselves not sure of the efficiency of their products.

The hour calls for the need for a solution which is effective and eco-friendly.

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 non- toxic & non-hazardous formulation!

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

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

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

The products are available in the form of a 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, when diluted in paints, can be used to paint the interior and exterior of the restaurants. It can be applied in the kitchen and food storage areas in restaurants.

RodrepelTM lacquer can be coated topically over the applications which need protection. It can be applied on a variety of surfaces like wood, concrete, metal, polymer, ceramic etc.

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

Incredible Incisors

Have you recently found shavings of wood, clothes going torn, cables losing their insulation or holes in your walls at home?

There is a chance of your home being invaded!

Yes, invaded by the pesky creatures, called rodents!

How is it even possible for such tiny creatures to do this?

But they do this. They make use of their incisors to make these menaces happen.

What makes the rodent’s teeth so strong?

The intricately crossed crystals of a mineral called calcium hydroxyapatite embedded in collagen makes their teeth strong. The composite microstructure is so strong that it has served as a model for a so-called “bio-mimetic material,” a synthetic copy created in the laboratory with ceramics and polymers.

Incisors are the front most teeth in mammals. These incisors have thick layers of enamel on the front and little enamel on the back. Dental enamel is the hardest substance of any mammal’s body, but rodent enamel is the toughest of the tough. Because they do not stop growing, the animal must continue to wear them down so that they do not reach and pierce the skull. As the incisors grind against each other, the softer dentine on the rear of the teeth wears away, leaving the sharp enamel edge shaped like the blade of a chisel.

Most species have up to 22 teeth with no canines or anterior premolars. In rats, these are the four, long, sharp front teeth, two on top and two on the bottom. Rat incisors are highly specialized for gnawing. They are open-rooted, which means they grow throughout life. Rodents also have one or multiple pairs of premolars or molars (these teeth, also called cheek teeth, are located towards the back of the animal’s upper and lower jaws). Molars are the rearmost teeth in the mouth, used for grinding food prior to swallowing it. Molars are never replaced. Rats have only one set of teeth during their life. Rats particularly have 12 molars, six on the top and six on the bottom and three on each side of each jaw.

Rodents eat a variety of different foods including leaves, fruit, seeds, and small invertebrates. The cellulose rodents eat is processed in a structure called the caecum. The caecum is a pouch in the digestive tract that houses bacteria that are capable of breaking-down tough plant material into digestible form.

Rodents gnaw with their incisors by pushing the lower jaw forward, and chew with the molars by pulling the lower jaw backwards. In conjunction with these chewing patterns, rodents have large and complex jaw musculature, with modifications to the skull and jaws to accommodate it.

Their teeth are so razor sharp that they can gnaw through the hardest of substances including lead pipes, cinder blocks, solid wood doors, a four-inch thick slab of concrete, even a half-inch thick sheet of iron. Rats have gnawed through iron cabinets to access food. Insulation is not safe from mice either. They will tunnel into insulation inside walls and attics, either to make a home or to gather soft materials for their nests. By chewing through electrical wires, rats have caused many house fires. Rats and other rodents are believed to be the cause of 25-40% of all house fires through chewing wiring and creating nests of flammable materials like paper, cloth, and other bedding in confined areas.

Rodents will chew through the food packing to get to food. They may chew through boxes and bags which you may think are safe.

The mice have no respect for any item. They will gnaw on and into just about any chewable item that is stored in the attic, basement, garage or closet – including irreplaceable family heirlooms, valuable paintings, and important documents. Mice also can dig up and feed on newly planted crops in gardens, cause damage before harvest, and burrow into other areas on the property for food and nesting.

An adult rat’s jaws are 20 times more powerful than a person’s, biting down with a force of 24,000 psi, about the same as a crocodile’s jaws. The bite of rat can easily cut through bone. Rats can and will attack people if they sense that they are defenseless such as the elderly, disabled, and infants.

Gnawing is one of the key tell-tail signs of the presence of rats. Gnawing may be visible on doors, ledges, in corners, in wall material, on stored materials, or other surfaces wherever rats are present. Fresh accumulations of wood shavings, insulation, and other gnawed material indicate active infestations.

Let’s have a look on the below news articles where rodents have left the evidence of their menace.

Rat complaints in San Francisco have surged over the past five years

September 25, 2017 – SFGATE

A rat race of sorts is happening in San Francisco, where rodent complaints have surged in the past five years.

Since 2012, San Franciscans have steadily reported more rat sightings to 311, San Francisco’s official site for information and complaints. This year, the agency received around 848 calls from January through August and, if the numbers continue at the same rate, it’s projected that there will be about 1,272 calls made by the end of 2017.

 Rodents cause north Abilene house fire

September 14, 2017 – Big Country

Rodents started a fire that caused $5,000 worth of damage to a north Abilene home Thursday morning.

A press release from the Abilene Fire Department states the fire began after rodents chewed through wiring in the attic of a home on the 1800 block of Grape Street just after 9:30 a.m.

Smoke was seen coming from the eaves of the home when firefighters arrived on scene, but crews were able to contain the flames to the attic and quickly got the fire under control.

Investigators were able to determine the rodent-chewed wiring caused an electrical malfunction, which started the fire, according to the press release.

A typical home may have more than a dozen potential entry points for the rodents. They get through gaps as small as 15mm, often using plumbing pipes and unscreened vents or gaps in the eaves and roof edges. Homeowners in Lincolnshire are being urged to guard against a fresh invasion of rats this autumn. Dee Ward-Thompson, BPCA technical manager, says residents should be doing all they can now to protect their properties. She said: “Rain washes rats out of sewers and other nesting places and, inevitably, they go looking for shelter in higher ground. “They’ll try to find some sort of dwelling and that could be lofts, garages or sheds. “Our members report the number of calls to deal with infestations often rises in the Autumn when the temperature drops often quite dramatically and we’re expecting a similar pattern this time. “So it’s important for homeowners to do as much as they can to ensure they’re not among those affected.” Bridgend County Borough Council was named top of the list for rats in 2015/16 with almost 3,000 call-outs per 1,000 residents making up 93 per cent of its total number overall.

C Tech Corporation has a solution to prevent the nuisance caused by the rats!

Yes, you read it right!

We at C Tech Corporation provide you with extremely low toxic, extremely low hazard, non-mutagenic and non-carcinogenic solution RodrepelTM.

RodrepelTM, manufactured by C Tech Corporation using green technology is an anti-rodent aversive.

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.

Our product RodrepelTM is available in three forms viz. masterbatch, Liquid Concentrate, and lacquer.

RodrepelTM masterbatch can be incorporated in the polymer-based applications while processing them. The polymer applications like wires, cables, pipes, etc. can be manufactured by using our masterbatch additive.

Rats in ATM

Surprised reading the title?

Well, many of you would have read it in the newspaper and social media platforms about the news.

You know it’s going to be a severe economic downturn when ATMs are being closed because the rodents shred currency notes resulting in technical errors and thus the ATM is out of service.

Not only humans but even rodents seem to have a huge appetite for currency notes!

Recent news reported for this menace is grabbing everyone’s attention.

It was reported that:

Notes worth Rs 12 lakh destroyed by mice inside Assam’s Tinsukia ATM

By: Express Web Desk, The Indian Express | Guwahati | June 19, 2018

A Guwahati-based financial company named FIS: Global Business Solutions, which runs the ATM, had reportedly deposited Rs 29 lakhs inside the machine on May 19.

 

 

 

 

A different kind of demonetisation struck Assam’s Tinsukia district when mice allegedly tore to shreds notes worth Rs 12 lakhs inside an ATM belonging to the State Bank of India (SBI).

The SBI ATM (DFBK – 000196116) in Laipuli area has been shut due to technical failure since May 20. However, behind closed doors, unknown to the world, it was hosting an army of four-legged guests: Mice. On June 11, when a few repairmen visited the outlet to get the machine fixed, they were surprised to find heaps of 500 and 2,000 rupee notes shredded into tiny pieces.

According to bank officials, notes worth Rs 12,38,000 have been destroyed by the mice. A Guwahati-based financial company named FIS: Global Business Solutions, which runs the ATM, had reportedly deposited Rs 29 lakhs inside the machine on May 19. “The ATM had stopped working the following day,” a local Tinsukia-based journalist confirmed.

This is not the first case to be reported. Read more:

Mice chew through cash in Kazakh ATM

January 13, 2018

A pair of mice snuck into an ATM in the Kazakh capital Astana, hiding from a snow storm. Bank workers were surprised when they discovered the tiny intruders and the ruined notes they had munched on during their stay.

The two were found when the machine was re-stocked with cash, and the workers recorded their odd discovery on a video.

The footage, posted on local social media, shows damaged banknotes and feces in the ATM compartment. “And here we have a mouse,” a male voice comments, as a woman lifts the cover on a box containing a pile of chewed money. To show the rodent, the man moves some banknotes aside only to find there were actually two of them, making female workers in the video squeak. “An entire mafia here,” he says.

Although the bank didn’t say how much the ‘lunch’ for the two mice had cost, local media estimated the damage at some $300. 

Man makes a cash withdrawal from ATM, gets a mouse with his money

By Leigh Goessl │January 30, 2012 in Odd News

A man recently went to get some cash out of an ATM and got a surprise withdrawal.

After he pulled out his cash from the machine in Ersboda, located in northern Sweden, Gholam Hafezi didn’t get a receipt, but did get much more than he’d anticipated.

According to Swedish publication Folkbladet.nu, Hafezi had made a 700 kronor ($104) withdrawal from his account and with his withdrawal came a mouse’s tail.

At first Hafezi thought it was a shoelace, but then he realized it was a mouse tail and the rest of the body and head of the mouse was still struggling inside the machine.

“I pulled once more and then his tail came off,” said Hafezi, who rushed in to the customer help desk at the neighbouring Coop Forum grocery store for help, reported The Local, an English version of Swedish News.

This mouse claimed a more pricey residence when he took up house inside an ATM and chewed up the cash to make a nest.

ATMs seem like an odd place for mice to scurry into, but perhaps not as unusual as you’d think. Consider how flexible mice are and are able to squeeze in small places. Additionally, it is common to find mice and other small animals taking refuge in other types of machinery.

Why would have they been into the ATM? Well, the shelter is one of the reasons the rodents visited the ATM. Also, the rodents can survive on anything they can chew.

The reason why rodents are such determined chewers is that they actually chew for survival. Like several other animals of the rodent family, they have characteristic strong incisors that grow all through their lives. The chewing habit is for them, a coping mechanism to file these incisors and keep them from growing out of hand – or mouth, so just like we clip our fingernails, a rat gnaws on things in order to keep its teeth in check. Overgrown teeth are a possible problem for them. They like any surface that they can gnaw on, let the surface be metal, polymer, concrete, wood, etc.

Using mechanical traps, rat baits, glue boards, fumigation is not the way to combat this nuisance.

We need something that keeps the rodents at bay.

The solution available with C Tech Corporation to this nuisance is a onetime solution and the need of the hour because you just cannot let the cash to be chewed up by the rodents. Our products are a blend of green chemistry and smart technology.

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 is compliant with ROHS, ROHS2, ISO, REACH, APVMA, NEA, BPR, and FIFRA exempted.

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.

Our newly developed product is in the form of spray which can be applied in every part of the ATM and it is any easy to use product. It can be sprayed on the already installed wires and cable, devices, ceiling panels, and other pest infested areas.

The products are also available in the form of a solid masterbatch, liquid concentrate, and lacquer.

The product available in the form of solid masterbatch can be incorporated into the polymeric applications like wires and cables, cash withdrawal machines, etc. Thus, making the end application rodent resistant.

The product available in liquid concentrate can be diluted in paints and can be applied to interior and exterior of the ATM. The liquid concentrate is compatible with all kinds of paints and solvents.

The already installed wires and cables from the ATM can be coated with our lacquer to protect them from the pests gnawing on these applications and thus preventing huge monetary loss. The lacquer is transparent product and it does not wear off easily.

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

You could thus contribute to us in using products which are eco-friendly thus causing no damage to the environment.

Godowns overrun with pests.!!!

A country where starvation deaths and undernourished children fail to wake up the government from a deep slumber, a minute wastage of foodgrain is a crime. However, the awful condition in which the warehouses are maintained is a sign of why there is a massive wastage of foodgrain in the country.

According to FCI guidelines, foodgrains should be stored  in covered godowns or properly stacked on wooden crates with waterproof sheets on them. However, most of the bags lay uncovered, exposing the grains to damage. Some warehouses have no wooden crates, bamboo mats or polythene sheets to prevent migration of moisture from the floor. The sacks are not piled up properly to prevent decay; the bottom sacks are kept on the floor, which bore bite marks by rats. You can even find water dripping through the ceilings and even rodent burrows. These are ideal breeding grounds for a variety of pests.

Rats are profilic breeders and a pair of these can multiple into hundreds in a single year. Rats are also known to introduce other pests, such as fleas, mites, and ticks into the premise, causing additional damage.

A rat’s bowel movements are very frequent, a rodent discharges  between 25-150 pellets of excreta per day, according to Narendra Wagle, former chairman of the Consumer Guidance Society of India (CGSI).

But what’s even worse is the invisible contamination of food by rat urine between 25-50ml per day percolating through the bags in which the grain is stored in godowns. And this is the food that the Prevention Of Food Adulteration (PFA) Act guarantees as clean enough to eat. Clean enough to land up as staple food on our plates, or in biscuits and bread, or in the 24 million tonnes of grain sup-plied through the public distribution system.

We have come across some horrible figures for damage of food in warehouses in India:

Grain drain

By Kumar Vikram  |   Published: 25th March 2018

NEW DELHI: About 57,676 tons of foodgrain stored in Food Corporation of India (FCI) godowns have got damaged and become useless for human consumption in the past five years owing to pest attack, leakage in godowns, exposure to rain and floods, procurement of poor quality stock etc. This amount was sufficient to feed more than 1.15 crore people for a month, according to a report by the Ministry of Consumer Affairs. Some amount of foodgrain also gets wasted during transportation in trains and trucks.

62,000 tonne: Foodgrain wasted by FCI

By dna Correspondent  |    May 22, 2017

While India ranks 55th in the Global Hunger Index (GHI), an RTI reply has revealed that around 62,000 tonnes of foodgrains, mainly rice and wheat have been damaged in the godowns of the Food Corporation of India (FCI) in the last six years with Maharashtra topping the list of states. Every year, crores of rupees are spent to prevent decay and then again a whooping sum is spent to dispose of the piled up waste.

In 2016-17 (up to March 1), a damage of 8,679 tonnes of foodgrains was reported, with Maharashtra topping the list of states with 7,963 tonnes. Sources said there are various reasons for the damage of foodgrains, including pest attacks, leakages in godowns, procurement of poor quality stocks, exposure to rains, floods, and negligence on the part of the persons concerned in taking precautionary measures.

Rodents act as the primary hosts of Hantaviruses, Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome, Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome, Lassa Fever, Leptospirosis, Lymphocytic, Chorio-meningitis (LCM), Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever, Plague, Rat-Bite Fever, Tularemia. Infected rodents shed the virus through saliva, urine and faeces.

Many methods are used to keep pests away from warehouses like fumigation, rodent mechanical traps, zappers, glue boards, rodent biats but these have proved to be inefficient.

When these methods are proved to be inefficient, why to depend on them?

But is there any effective solution available?

Yes, C Tech Corporation’s RodrepelTM is the best solution to keep rodents away from the warehouses and hence from human contact.

RodrepelTM is a low-toxic, non-hazardous and rodent aversive. This product works on the mechanism of repellency.

RodrepelTM 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

RodrepelTM is available in liquid concentrate which can be diluted in paints and can be applied to interior and exterior of warehouses. The product is safe for the storage of grains. The product can be used in the storage areas to keep the pests out of these places.

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

The product available in the form of masterbatch can be incorporated into the polymeric applications like polymeric bags and racks used for storage of grains, wires and cables, pipes, equipment and accessories from warehouse while they are manufactured.

The product is also available in the form of wood polish additivewhich can be applied to the storage racks.

The product available in the form of bird repellent lacquer can be applied to the beams and trusses of the warehouses which will keep the birds away.

The product is compliant with RoHS, RoHS2, APVMA, NEA and REACH and is FIFRA exempted.

Managing mice infestations

Excellent hearings, vision, smell and touch have enabled the house mouse to be highly adaptable to homes and indoor buildings. All they need is a 1/4″ opening to be able to enter a house, so they often have access to many places along the house’s perimeter.

The house mouse is a rodent, characteristically having a pointed snout, small rounded ears, and a long naked or almost hairless tail.

House mouse is native to northern Indian subcontinent but is introduced worldwide through association with humans. Highly adaptive, the house mouse has both behavioral and physiological traits such as the ability to survive in buildings and aboard ships, a tendency to move into agricultural fields and leave when the habitat changes, and a rapid rate of reproduction that allow it to thrive wherever humans do. A female mouse can have as many as 12 babies every three weeks, quickly turning a small infestation into a huge problem. This means she could have as many as 150 offspring in a single year!

Mice are generally afraid of rats which often kill and eat them, a behavior known as muricide and it’s the reason why it’s highly unlikely for you to have both species infesting your property. Despite this, free-living populations of rats and mice do exist together.

Mice are mostly crepuscular or nocturnal; they are averse to bright lights and hence most of their feeding occurs after sunset or before sunrise. Nervously active, they are agile climbers and jumpers and are also good swimmers. Their all other senses are extremely sharp. For example, mice can use their whiskers to sense surfaces and air movements, which is why they manage to escape a room as soon as they notice you approaching.

Mice can transport bacteria, such as salmonella, on their bodies and contaminate food sources and kitchen surfaces. Apart from this, they are also responsible for Hantavirus, Leptospirosis, Typhus, Plague, Pox (Rickettsial), etc. Mice can actually carry as many as 200 human pathogens!

Mice eat 15 to 20 times per day. That’s why their nests are located close to food supplies and they have developed a preference to live within human habitats. They can live without water source since the greater amount of food provides them with enough water.

Mice chew through wallboard, cardboard, wood, and even electrical wiring. Mice gnaw at, tunnel through, and nest in insulation. House mice living outdoors eat insects and seeds, including grains, which makes them pests in some areas.

The nuisance for same is reported as:

Delaware Waffle House Shut Down After Mouse Video Surfaces

By David Chang │NBC News │June 6, 2018

A Delaware Waffle House was closed down after video surfaced of a mouse inside the restaurant.

The viral video showed a mouse eating crumbs below a counter at the Waffle House in Smyrna. The Division of Public Health Office of Food Protection (OFP) received two complaints Tuesday about mice being spotted at the restaurant. OFP inspectors arrived the same day and found evidence of a rodent infestation.

The inspectors then closed the restaurant due to gross unsanitary conditions.

The traditionally used rodenticides and pesticides used to kill the mice don’t work on them. Studies say that newly developed DNA protects the vermin from standard toxins. Mice have been slowly evolving traits to survive warfarin, and pockets of resistant rodents have been found in many different parts of the world.

One such study is mentioned below:

City mice carry disease-causing bacteria with drug-resistant genes

Mice in your living space pose potential health risks, study says

Amina Zafar │CBC News │April 17, 2018

House mice aren’t just a nuisance but a potential source of infections, say researchers who trapped and tested more than 400 of the rodents from apartments across New York City.

City dwellers tend to fear rats more than mice because they’re bigger and can be seen scurrying in subways or in alleys. The researchers previously studied how rats carry disease-causing bacteria such as E. coli, salmonella and C. difficile.

But they were concerned mice might actually pose a greater health risk because they live with us in houses and apartments.

“We found a lot of antibiotic resistance in some of these bacteria, which we think may have implications for understanding not only the ubiquity of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in the environment but also potential sources of human infection,” said Lipkin, whose research was published Tuesday in the journal mBio.

In the vicious cycle of resistance, antibiotics kill some bacteria, but some of the fast-growing microbes evolve and find ways to protect themselves against the drugs. When that happens, people can develop infections that are much harder to treat.

Several ineffective measures are used to stop the menace caused by the pests. Mechanical traps are widely used but they stop working once an error occurs. Use of ineffective rat baits and tapes is common. But the essentials used to make these products give ineffective results. Capsaicin is commonly used so as to prevent the damage. The pain receptors of the pests by now have got immune to the capsaicin.

The ultrasonic repeller is used these days. It is a device which emits a frequency that is unattractive to the rodent’s ear. They serve to annoy the rodent more than anything. But it is proved to be ineffective.

What can be an effective solution to the nuisance caused by these mice?

The solution available with C Tech Corporation to this nuisance is a onetime solution and the need of the hour for maintaining an ecological balance considering the significance of these rodents. Our products are a blend of green chemistry and smart technology.

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 is compliant with ROHS, ROHS2, ISO, REACH, APVMA, NEA, BPR, and FIFRA exempted.

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, and lacquer.

The product available in the form of solid masterbatch can be incorporated into the polymeric applications like wires and cables, pipes, polymeric tree guards, etc. Thus, making the end application rodent resistant.

The product available in liquid concentrate can be diluted in paints and can be applied over the entire area of pest infestation by paints. 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 transparent product and it does not wear off easily.

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

You could thus contribute to us in using products which are eco-friendly thus causing no damage to the environment.
