Top Rodent infested Cities of the world

It is very important to know your enemies. Be it humans, four-legged animals or furry mammals and insects. When we think of enemies we generally relate to some part of our brain which has amounted to the feeling of hatred. The same hatred is felt by humans towards the furry animals called rodents. They scurry around in search of food, destroying everything in their way. These rodents are present all around the world. But in some parts of the world, their infestation is very high.

Let us see the top 10 most rodent-infested areas or cities in the world.

1. Deshnoke, India

In northwestern India, you’ll find the city of Deshnoke, home to a place of worship called the Karni Mata Temple. What’s interesting about this temple — and what makes it a fitting addition to the list — is that it’s positively packed with rats. Some 20,000, in fact. Not only are they welcomed, but they’re also worshipped.

2. Rat Island, the Aleutians

Rat Island, part of the Aleutian Islands, is just one example of an island habitat devastated by invasive rats. About 90 percent of the world’s islands have been overrun by rodent stowaways, which can spell disaster for native species especially seabirds.

Happily, however, the name “Rat Island” is now technically a misnomer. Although rats enjoyed the run of the place starting in the 1780s when a shipwreck dropped some ashore, they were officially eradicated in 2010 after years of dedicated conservation efforts. Now birds are starting to reclaim this previously rat-infested stomping ground and slowly grow in numbers

3.  Paris, France

Rats show no respect for famed romantic locales, either. In 2008, Paris officials estimated the city’s rat population had reached 8 million, and since only about 2 million people make their homes in Paris proper, that meant there were about four rats pounding the pavement for every Parisian.

Below given is the link to the article posted on April 17, 2013 in The Local, Frances news in English. It states the Rat menace which has infested Paris and is giving the Police nightmares.

4.  London, England

Rats are also a big issue in London. Like the Seine in Paris, the River Thames has long been a major rat-magnet. But lately, rats have been thriving more than ever due to construction efforts for the 2012 Olympics and the aftereffects of the economic recession — more abandoned properties mean more places for rats to roost undisturbed.

London’s rats are also getting bigger than ever, at least partially thanks to increased littering — especially of the fast-food variety — by on-the-go Brits. Some big squeakers are reportedly growing up to double the usual size.

In the below giving article, dated 12th November, 2013, a very unfortunate incident is highlighted. A 16 month old baby was attacked by a foot long rat in the area of North London.

5. Mumbai, India

Black Death or Bubonic Plague, officially declared as wiped out nearly 30 years ago by the Indian government, still poses a real threat to the country and to Bombay (Mumbai) in particular.

The sprawling metropolis plays host to tens of millions of rats, which carry the disease via their fleas and hence pose a danger to the city’s population.

In this city thousands come from all over India in search of Jobs. It is said that there are more people in Mumbai alone than whole of U.K. There are huge infestations of rodents in many parts of this amazing city.

Below given is an article where the rats from Mumbai were found in an international flight to Doha unawares by the staff of the air plane.

6. Baltimore, Md.

Baltimore’s rat problem is bad enough that at one point, rats tunneled so intensely beneath a particular area of pavement that when garbage collectors drove over it, their truck sunk up to its axles. Rats in the vicinity took full advantage of the mishap and swarmed the truck, gorging on the garbage inside.

Baltimore also enjoys the dubious distinction of being a hotspot for rat-related research, beginning during World War II and continuing today, much of it carried out at Johns Hopkins University.

The following article posted in The Washigton Post speaks about the Rat menace in Baltimore.

7. New York City, USA

Incidents of unexpected rat appearances are frequently broadcast out of the Big Apple. Take the KFC/Taco Bell ratscapade of 2007. At a KFC/Taco Bell fast-food outlet located in Greenwich Village, a pack of rats drew big crowds and camera crews after they were discovered nonchalantly scurrying around the main eating area of the restaurant before it opened for the day. Word later got out that they regularly made themselves at home in the food prep area, too. Not pleasant information for frequent patrons, especially when news broke that the restaurant had several past rodent-related violations.

Like many densely populated areas, New York City has a prevalence of rats. Politicians and health authorities actively pursue policies and programs to manage the rat population. The exact number of rats is unknown, but it is estimated that there are at least as many rats as people. The city’s rat population is dominated by the Brown rat and Black rat.

Studies indicate that within the United States, this city is particularly well-suited for rats, taking into account such variables as (human) population patterns, public sanitation practices, climate, housing construction standards, etc. However, experts consider that the actual population varies, depending on climate, sanitation practices, efforts to control the population, and season.

Following article was posted in the CBS New York news Website.

Rats like to live where people live. They quickly adjust to the neighborhood. Rats can thrive on just an ounce of food and water daily, so when they enter a neighborhood and gain access to meat, fish, vegetables, and grains, they will stay. Rats prefer to feed in and around homes, restaurants, and businesses. But they will settle for scraps from trash bags and cans, private yards and what they find at the community refuse disposal and transfer station. Rats get the shelter they need from tall weeds and grass, fences and walls, rubbish piles and abandoned appliances.

Basically, they are found everywhere where they can find food and shelter. To eradicate this problem we at C Tech Corporation have come up with a viable solution. We have come up with a product named Rodrepel®™.

Rodrepel®™ is an extremely low toxicity and extremely low hazard, and environmentally safe anti-rodent additive for master batches specially developed for a range of polymeric and coating applications including films, wires, and cables. It is also effective in case the target species is birds and other animals. It is compatible with nearly all polymeric bases such as PVC, LDPE, HDPE etc.

It is also available in lacquer and liquid form and can be easily coated onto an application to repel the rodents. The best part about this product is that it works on the mechanism of repellence and does not kill the target species. i.e. rodents, thus being in accordance with the need of the century, Sustainability and green chemistry.

Rat Culture in Paris

Paris is undoubtedly one of the most romantic cities of all times. It is beautiful, scenic, culturally advance and home to the art of world-famous artists like Picasso. But as seen in fairy tales, beauty and beast walk side by side. Similarly in this city, within the backdrop of beauty, there are also beasts lurking around. These beasts are none other than Rats.  Let’s have a look at the following article published in The Local-France’s news in English on 17th April 2013.

 Rodent police launch war on Paris rats

Better weather and warmer air bring everyone back on to the streets of the French capital, including the city’s millions of scurrying rats. And that can mean only one thing – it’s rat extermination season for one dedicated Paris police squad.

It’s that time of year again. Spring is in the air, temperatures are climbing, and for one group of Paris residents, that means it’s time to emerge from their holes after a long winter underground, and venture out into the open air.

That’s right – the annual rat re-infestation of Paris is underway, which means its time for the Paris police to officially kick off their annual “deratization” campaign.

The UPNA – unité de prévention des nuisances animales (animal pollution prevention unit) – of the Paris prefecture of police, which was founded back in 2000, started its yearly war against rodent pests on Monday, and will fight on until June 14th, according to the prefecture’s website.

It is estimated that there are millions of rats scurrying about in the dark underground passages of the City of Light, though it’s impossible to give an accurate number.

 “Legend has it there are two rats for every person living in Paris,” Jean-Michel Derrin, who heads the pest-control police unit, told French daily Le Parisien on Wednesday.

“But the truth is, we just don’t know,” he added.

Official statistics aside, rat infestation is a serious problem in this city of over 2 million (human) residents.

The animals leave excrement behind them, cause damage to infrastructure and furniture if they get access to a dwelling, and according to BFMTV, each year they infect hundreds of Parisians with leptospirosis – a serious disease with extremely unpleasant symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea and even liver failure.

“Rats are everywhere – I don’t even let my kids play outside anymore,” one resident of the city’s 18th arrondissement told Le Parisien.

The designated rodent squad consists of six inspectors who will respond to calls about an infestation, ask property-owners to take certain measures – cleaning out basements or boarding up cellar windows, for example – and then call in an exterminator to ‘evict’ the rodents.

City authorities evidently take the rat problem seriously enough to issue verbal warnings and €450 fines to anyone who fails to comply with the unit’s instructions.

Anyone with a rat problem in the French capital can call UPNA on 01 40 27 16 00.

The measures taken by the rodent police do not assure full eviction of these creatures from the wonderful city of Paris.  The city has seen many historical moments and has also gone through Cultural Revolution known as Renaissance. But one thing has not changed in the city and that is the population of rats and their consequences on human health. The above article proves that this problem is far from over.

With the Seine, the subway and the numerous restaurants, Paris has become a Rat Paradise of sorts. With four times as many rats as humans in Paris, the frightening statistics show that the furry cosmopolitans are perhaps 8 million in total, according to the grim prognoses of experts.

There has to be some solutions which can act as a roadblock for the budding population of these rats in Paris. We, at C Tech Corporation have come up with the right solution for this. It is known as RodrepelTM. RodrepelTM is a niche product which is a rodent aversive. The difference between this product and other rodenticides is that it is an extremely low toxicity and extremely low hazard and eco-friendly. It works on the mechanism of repellence and does not kill the target species but only repels them.

It is available in the form of masterbatches and can be incorporated into a large group of base polymers. Thus it can be used in cables, wires, pipes, films etc. It is also available in lacquer and liquid form and can, therefore, be used to coat nearly all application in and around our surroundings.

Using this eco-friendly product will definitely help reduce the rat menace in Paris and help this beautiful city to remain safe with greener solutions.

The product is compliant with ROHS, ROHS2, ISO, REACH, APVMA, NEA, EU-BPR, and FIFRA exempted.

Super rats: More a Villain than a Hero!!

We love our superheroes, be it Superman, Batman, Spiderman or even the great HULK!!! But they are all superhumans. When it comes to super animals such as super rats, we nurture a mixture of feelings, ranging from fear and helplessness to pure and simple hate.

There are a number of reasons why the feelings towards super rats are not of the adoration given to superhumans. It’s very simple, the superhumans save people from destruction and super rats create destruction. Super rats can quite easily be the villainous character in one of the superhuman novels or movies.

Super Rats can be a problem in urban, suburban and rural areas. They infest old buildings and crowded, unsanitary areas that exist in an urban environment. However, they can also be a problem even where newer homes and sanitary conditions exist. Since these rodents eat practically anything humans eat, they get plenty of food from home gardens, fruit or nut trees and even parts of some ornamental shrubs and flowers. Garbage disposals also attract rats into household and street sewer lines. Rats and mice have long been a problem on farms where food is plentiful and convenient nesting sites are both numerous and hard to eliminate.

Here are just a few of the abilities these rodents have developed to survive people’s constant attempts to eliminate them: They can burrow long distances from a nest to food sources, reducing their exposure to predators. The tunnels may extend 4 vertical feet into the earth. They can scale walls and walk across telephone wires with ease. They are excellent swimmers–capable of navigating a half mile through open water. They are amazingly resilient, easily surviving falls up to 50 feet.

An article titled “A NEW breed of “super rats” immune to poison and too smart to get caught in traps has invaded Sydney. Dirtier than cockroaches, more voracious than mice and more annoying than the Queensland State of Origin side, rats are set to become the state’s most-hated pest this winter.”, was published in The Daily Telegraph on May 30, 2012. It stated the following:

And it gets worse – they are also canny enough to steal food from traditional snap traps without getting caught.

Australian Museum naturalist Martin Robinson said: “A lot of suburban rats have been baited for as long as Sydney has been settled; so many populations have become immune to those baits. One of the interesting things is that when they become immune to the bait, they can actually become addicted to it.”

So, how to defeat a legion of super-smart rodents buzzing on an overdose of Ratsak? Bacon and fuse-wire.

Mr. Robinson said bacon rind and other strong-smelling food sources like anchovies were perfect to lure a rat to a trap while tying the bait down with fuse-wire ensured the rodents did not get away without springing the catch.

Two species of rat inhabit homes – ground-dwelling sewer rat and the roof rat, which as the name suggests is a much better climber and tends to nest in roof cavities. Pest controller Steve Cope said roof rats, also known as black rats despite the fact they are often brown, frequently entered homes via overhanging tree branches. Once in residence, they breed, feed, defecate, fight and chew to their hearts’ content while their human hosts live below.

Mr. Robinson said that, with their fast rate of breeding, populations could spring up almost anywhere in Sydney but established colonies had thrived for years in Hyde Park and near the No.4 platform at Town Hall train station.

Increases in rat infestations have been reported in Cronulla, Brighton Le Sands, Rose Bay, Bellevue Hill, Surry Hills and Paddington. Mr. Robinson said suburban rats often took refuge in homes as the weather cooled due to a lack of shelter and food elsewhere.

“They’re small animals and warm-blooded, so when the weather gets cold they tend to get desperate and they need to eat a bit more to keep warm,” he said. “They’re basically going to be following their noses, so they’ll be getting into bins and hanging around cafes and places like that where the food odors are wafting around.

“But if they can’t maintain the food/heat-loss balance they’ll die, so a warm nesting spot is almost as good as a food supply. If they get both they’re home and hosed.”

These super rats are one of a kind and do not get affected by the rodenticides used for the normal rat species. They get used to these chemicals and also lead to poisoning of products that they come in contact with. They need more poisonous chemicals to kill them or affect them and this cannot be a viable alternative as these chemicals are a huge risk for the ecosystem as a whole.

Similarly, an article was published in Mail online in December 2012, stating that a plague of ‘super rats’ in the Home Counties can be wiped out only with considerably stronger poisons.

 Council experts say the number of mutant rats, which are resistant to conventional poisons, is rising drastically after flooding drove them into homes and created ideal breeding conditions.

West Berkshire Council is asking the Health and Safety Executive to change the rules on how poison is used.

 Homes in Berkshire, Oxford, and Hampshire have reported increased numbers of the ‘super-rodent’ which is resistant to normal poisons and can transmit life-threatening diseases to humans and farm animals.

However, wildlife experts fear that if stronger poisons are allowed to be used against the rat-threat it may harm innocent local wildlife.

The ‘super-rats’ population is due to increase further as the recent flooding across many parts of Britain has created ideal breeding conditions.

 West Berkshire Council is lobbying the Health and Safety Executive for permission to use powerful rodenticides, brodifacoum and flocoumafen, which are currently limited to indoor use.

Graham Chappell, from Rapid Pest Control in Newbury, who is contracted by West Berkshire Council, said: ‘It’s becoming more of an issue now simply because of the number of rats that are being seen.

‘They’ve also mutated genetically and are bred to be immune to standard poisons.

‘We have to start using different methods such as trapping and gassing, which can be less effective and more costly.’

A study by University of Reading’s Rodenticide Resistance Action Group involving testing the tails of hundreds of rats killed in Berkshire and Oxfordshire, found that many of the rodents were resistant to common forms of poison used by local authorities and professional pest controllers, farmers and gamekeepers.

There were also similar incidents reported in different parts and counties of Britain.

There needs to be an alternate solution for this as super rats are a worldwide phenomenon. They cause of path of destruction wherever they go and it needs to be stopped effectively and immediately keeping the ecology in mind.

C Tech Corporation has come up with such a unique and ideal alternative: RodrepelTM

RodrepelTM is an extremely low toxicity and extremely low hazard anti-rodent additive for masterbatches specially developed for a range of polymeric and coating applications. It is also effective in case the target species is birds and other animals. This product works on the mechanism of repellency. It does not kill the target species, and also does not affect the application it is used in. It is available in masterbatches, liquid or lacquer form.

It does not affect the humans coming in contact with the application they are incorporated in.

And moreover, last but not the least, it does not kill the animal but only repels them. Thus it is eco-friendly.

Rodents and Gas Leaks

A gas leakage is among the most feared human calamities of all time. Be it the poisonous gas leakages, the cooking gas leakages or the petroleum gas leakages. Each and every gas leakage brings with it the insurmountable wreckage of life and surroundings. There is no need to give an introduction into the world of grief provided by gas leakages. Let’s have a look at one such incident.

Rat-nibbled gas pipe triggers explosion, 5 of family injured

TNN Sep 20, 2013, 07.18AM IST

PUNE: Five members of a family suffered burn injuries in an explosion caused due to a cooking gas leak in Kondhwa on Thursday morning. The gas had leaked through a 2mm hole on the rubber tube that a mouse had nibbled. The poorly ventilated kitchen added to the explosion’s intensity.

The injured include Ram Karan Sahani (54), his wife Sunita (48), son Dinesh (26) and daughters Deepali (17) and Sheetal (16). Sahani, a labourer , and his family lived in survey number 9 at Kapilnagar, Ambedkar chowk in Kondhwa.

Sudam Pachorkar, inspector (crime) of the Kondhwa police station told TOI that Sunita was the first to wake up on Thursday and she used a lighter to light the stove to heat water, following which the explosion occurred around 7.45 am. He added that the impact of the explosion was such that Sunita, her husband and three children, who were sleeping, suffered burn injuries. “The explosion blew off the roof and doors of the two-room house and caused severe damage to the property and household items,” he said.

The explosion woke up the neighbours. Jayashree Jagtap, who lived next door, said, “We woke up hearing a loud noise and found the glasses on our windows broken. When we came out, we saw that Sahani’s house was damaged . We went inside and found the family crying in pain. They had suffered burn injuries. With the help of local people, we rushed them to a nearby private hospital.” They were later shifted to a private hospital in Kasba Peth and then to Sassoon General Hospital.

Local residents also alerted the police control room. Police officials rushed to the spot and, later, sealed the place as a preventive measure.

One of the victims, Deepali, who suffered minor injuries and was discharged from the hospital after treatment, returned to her house and broke into tears on seeing the damage. She said, “My mother used to switch off the regulator after she had finished cooking. On Thursday, we woke up to an explosion and we had burn injuries on our hands and legs. I do not know what went wrong.”

While Sunita suffered 50 % burn injuries, Ram suffered 31% burn injuries. Dinesh and Deepali received treatment for 2% and 5 % burn injuires. Sheetal sustained 6% burn injuries . “Dinesh works in a cyber cafe while his sisters are students. We have lodged a complaint of accidental burns,” said Pandharinath Mandhare, senior inspector of the Kondhwa police station.

The oil marketing company has confirmed that the explosion was caused due to leakage of cooking gas. They told the police that the leak occurred as the rubber tube was bitten by a mouse.

Mandhare said, “The petroleum company has informed us that the rubber tube was bitten by a mouse and had a 2mm hole. Probably, Sunita did not notice the hole. Also, the ventilation in the house was poor as the kitchen window was closed and the door was locked. However, the cylinder and regulator were intact” .

The cylinder gas LPG (Liquefied petroleum gas) contains mercaptans. Mercaptans are special compounds having characteristic smells, added to detect a leakage if any. But in the case of directly piped gas, natural gas is supplied which doesn’t contain any odoriferous compounds added to it, so leakage detection is not possible. Thus if there is a gas leak due to possible gnawing of a rodent, on a gas pipe, it becomes impossible to detect. Also since these gas pipelines are buried in the ground, they are more prone to attack by rodents. Rodents are nocturnal and more active underground.

The above-mentioned incident could have been easily avoided. The pipes could have been rodent resistant, the mice should have been kept away, the victim should have checked before switching on the stove. But all these are afterthoughts. The only thing which counts is that the rubber pipe was chewed upon and it led to a calamity.

From all the above, one thing can be made really certain. The pipes have to be made rodent resistant. Having said that, people may feel that incorporating rodenticides in these pipes is the only option. But Rodenticides are harmful to surrounding as they leach out fumes and also have a short shelf life and are not 100% efficient.

There is 100% efficient solution available with  C Tech Corporation. We have come up with a unique product known as RodrepelTM .

RodrepelTM , an extremely low toxicity and extremely low hazard rodent aversive can be incorporated in the gas tubing and pipelines, hindering the rodents from attacking them. It is an anti-rodent additive for masterbatches specially developed for a range of polymeric and coating applications including films, pipes, wires, and cables. It can be incorporated into nearly all base polymers like HDPE, LDPE, PVC, PE etc.

The product is compliant with ROHS, ROHS2, ISO, REACH, APVMA, NEA, EU-BPR, and FIFRA exempted.

The mechanism followed by our product is repellence by attacking their olfactory senses and it does not aid to kill the target species. The products do not interfere with the working of the end application it is used in. They are stable at high temperatures; they do not leach out or produce any toxic fumes and have a long shelf life of 5-40 years as per the application.

It looks as if this green chemistry based product is tailor-made for this application. Don’t you feel?

Rodents and Agriculture

Since time immemorial, rodents and humans have lived side by side. It is said that rodents started encroaching on human turf since the very starting of their time. It has just increased over the hundreds of years and has reached to such an extent that now for food they even pillage our agricultural fields.

It is said that Agriculture is the heart and soul of the nation. It gives riches to the nation and also the ever loving economy. The only revenue which a nation can call its own is the revenue generated by agricultural sectors. In today’s time and date when malnutrition and food shortage is rampant, agriculture becomes even more important.

But even this sector has enemies. They come in the form of animals, rodents, insects, and termites that destroy the crops grown on the land. They either destroy the crops by eating them or eating the stem and saplings when the plant is in a very early stage. This destruction is totally not acceptable. This has to be prevented.

Let’s have a look at the following article regarding the economic loss caused by rodents in the agricultural industry.

Rodent damage costing the agriculture industry millions

Mar. 14, 2011, Gail Keirn, APHIS Public Affairs Specialist, USDA

Rodents cause millions of dollars in damages to field crops, stored grain and farm equipment each year. In addition, they are the major carrier for more than 60 diseases that are transmissible to humans, companion animals, and livestock.

In the new book titled, “Agricultural Production,” by Nova Science Publishers, Inc., Felix C. Wager (editor), researchers from the USDA and the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) presents a review of the latest information on rodent damage management as it relates to worldwide agricultural production. 

“Rodents pose one of the most serious threats to food production worldwide, but indiscriminately removing rodents from ecosystems is not always the best management option,” states Dr. Gary Witmer, lead author and research wildlife biologist at the USDA-APHIS National Wildlife Research Center. “Sustainable agriculture attempts to ensure the profitability of farms while preserving and protecting the environment upon which they depend.”

Traditional approaches to rodent population and damage management have relied on direct reduction of populations using rodenticide baits or rodent traps and modifying the habitat to be less suitable for rodents. Recently, the use of an ecologically-based rodent management system (EBRM) that is tailored to the rodent species, agricultural system, and local habitat is gaining more support from researchers and agricultural specialists.

“The key to the EBRM is to reduce important resources needed by rodents, such as food and nesting sites at critical times of the year through habitat modification,” notes co-author Dr. Grant Singleton from the IRRI. “The emphasis is on a lower reliance on rodenticides and more community-wide habitat management approaches.”

Witmer and Singleton note the EBRM approach may still involve the use of lethal methods, such as rodenticides, and research is critical to finding new rodenticides as well as make existing rodenticides more effective and less hazardous to non-target animals and the environment.

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

The best management option would be to keep the rodents away from the fields and crops without killing them. This best option is provided by C Tech Corporation. We provide an extremely low toxicity and extremely low hazard alternative to this major problem which is often neglected.

Rodrepel®™ and Termirepel®™  are two products which are one of its kinds. They are an extremely low toxicity and extremely low hazard and eco-friendly products. It is especially effective when it is incorporated into films which are used to cover the fields to keep the animals and rodents at bay.

RodrepelTM is available in three forms namely masterbatch, liquid concentrate, and lacquer.

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

Liquid concentrate can be mixed in paints in a pre-determined ratio and be applied to fences from farms, outhouse, etc. to repel rats from the area required.

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

The product is compliant with ROHS, ROHS2, ISO, REACH, APVMA, NEA, EU-BPR, and FIFRA exempted.

Hence by using RodrepelTM the farms, and gardens can be prevented from rat damage effectively and considerably.

Bear menace can’t be beared!

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

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

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

These bears can be dangerous when around humans and pets!

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

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

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

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

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

Such tragedies are documented below illustrates that the presence of bears is intolerable.

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

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

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

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

Western Towns Try to Stop Hungry Bears from Causing Havoc

09/18/2017 – Huffpost

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

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

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

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

Somehow the nuisance caused by bears needs to be stopped.

But how?

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

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

Rodrepel™ is a low-toxic, non-hazardous rodent aversive. Rodrepel™is a perfect blend of smart technology and green chemistry. This product helps to keep the bears away from the application. The product is compliant with RoHS, RoHS 2, REACH and is FIFRA exempted. Our eco-friendly products do not kill the target species but only repel them.

Flying squirrels – Nuisance pests

You thought that this squirrel has wings, but that is not so. Though called as flying squirrels they do not have wings!

Contrary to their common name, these small tree squirrels actually glide instead of fly. They stretch out their legs, spreading the fold of skin between the front and hind legs, to form a kind of parachute that lets them glide from branch to branch.

Flying squirrels are mostly nocturnal, and can be distinguished from regular squirrels by their large, orbital eyes.

They are also known to be the most carnivorous of the group, feeding primarily on nuts and seeds, but also on insects and bird eggs.

These squirrels feed on nuts, acorns seeds, berries, some insects and bird eggs. In preparation for the colder months, some of the food is stored in the nest chamber, while the rest is hoarded in tree crotches.

Flying squirrels become pests when they take up residence in an attic where they can cause a noticeable odor and damage with their urine. The species is of very minor medical concern.

Although flying squirrels can glide for long distances, 100 feet or more depending on the starting height, Eastern Gray Squirrels can also jump a fair distance.

Some experts claim that if a flyer is 80 feet up in the air, it can glide for hundreds of feet. A flying squirrel can adjust their flight pattern via their tail and wrist bone. When preparing to land, they slow their decent with a parachute style curvature.

The life expectancy for a flying squirrel is six years and can extend to fifteen years if they are held in captivity.

Although hard to notice in the wild, and sometimes in your house, flying squirrels can quickly become hard to solve a problem once they decide to invade your home. As a matter of fact, because of their troublesome nature and the extreme frustration, they cause homeowners who end up with flying squirrels in their attic or walls.

A dozen squirrels are “partying” in a Virginia Beach woman’s attic

By Mary Reid Barrow – Correspondent

Jan 29, 2018

A slew of homeless flying squirrels – all healthy – are spending the winter with wildlife rehabilitator Connie Heibert in Virginia Beach.

They are refugees from Diana Bailey’s attic in Lake Lawson near Northampton Boulevard in Virginia Beach.

The nocturnal critters began partying their nights away in December. And Bailey sent me this report a couple weeks ago: “Right now they are holding hockey matches back and forth across my bedroom ceiling about midnight most evenings.”

Squirrel responsible for damaging Christmas lights in New Jersey town

By Travis Fedschun | Fox News

A New Jersey town’s search for the vandal who damaged a popular Christmas lights display came to an end Saturday when officials discovered the Grinch was actually a medium-sized rodent.

Officials in Sea Girt, 65 miles south of New York City, spent the past week scrambling to replace the display’s severed wires in time for the borough’s annual tree lighting on Friday, WNBC-TV reported.

The morning after the ceremony, the Sea Girt Police Department said it caught the vandal in the act, posting photos on social media of a squirrel climbing on the display and trying to take a bite out of the wires before running away.

“The Sea Girt Police Department is proud to report that the case of our broken holiday lights has been solved,” the department said in a press release. “We are happy that no human acted as a grinch in this incident. The squirrel was ‘charged’ with criminal mischief and released on bail.”

The discovery of the damaged wires originally had some residents thinking a vandal was trying to sabotage the holiday spirit.

Trapping the flying squirrels to fix the problem, is not the answer, killing and trapping sugar gliders and flying squirrels is a very difficult task for many trappers, and their methods can be harmful to the flying squirrel and the results will usually be temporary and ineffective.

C Tech Corporation can offer a solution to stop damage the damage caused by these pesky squirrels. Rodrepel™ is a non-toxic, non-hazardous, non-carcinogenic and environmentally safe, anti-rodent additive.

The masterbatch of Rodrepel™ can be incorporated into the polymeric applications like wires and cables, gas pipelines and other polymeric applications to protect them from the rodent attacks. The tree guards made of polymers can be incorporated with our masterbatch to prevent the damage caused by the flying squirrels to the trees and fruits.

The interiors and exterior of houses, schools, hospitals, warehouses, etc. can be painted by using our liquid concentrate with the paints. The liquid concentrate can be mixed with the paints in a pre-determined ratio. The liquid concentrate is compatible with all types of paints.

The product available in the form of the lacquer can be used as a topical application. It can be applied on the already installed applications like the wires and cables, pipes, tree guards etc. The lacquer can be applied on the wooden furniture and other structures can be protected using the lacquer. The lacquer is compatible with most of the surfaces like wood, metal, concrete, polymer, ceramic, etc.

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

Rodent damage to pipes

You can find rats or mice entering your house even when you have designed a rodent-proof house?!

Yes, this is true!

Rodents like rats and mice do not need doors or window to enter a house. A tiny hole as small as a finger ring is enough for the rodents to pass through and make an entry into your house. They easily make use of the sewage, water, gas and other essential pipes to enter the facilities like homes, offices, theaters etc.

The Stuff news article says, “Rats chew through water pipe causing thousands of dollars in damage” highlighting the nuisance caused by a rat when it entered Mr. Brian Turner’s house.

Rodents can swim up sewer pipes and get excess inside the toilets. They use these pipes for traveling from one end to another. In between, they do gnaw these applications resulting in leakage of the pipes.

Several utility pipes are laid underground. These pipes are susceptible to get damaged by the rodents which reside underground. The rodents chew these pipes to keep their incisors sharp.
The colors and texture of the polymeric pipes attract these pests which make them attack these applications.

Now, rodents are even known to gnaw metals, thus the metallic pipes are not safe from the rodent attack. Rodents have a bite force greater than that of the shark. Thus they can easily bite the metal pipes leaving them for no use.

Many a times rodents gnaw on water supply pipes making holes in them. This results in unnecessary flow and wastage of water.

The destruction caused by rodents can be unimaginable. Accidents have occurred due to rodents chewing the gas pipelines leading to leakage of gas. This has resulted in fire hazards making people lose their lives.

Wiltshire householders warned to watch out for rodents

6th September 2017 Alison Phillips – Gazatte and Herald

RATS are likely to be on the rise in Wiltshire this autumn as the county already is high on a national rat league table, so householders should watch out for sightings of the disease-carrying rodents in homes and gardens.

A typical home may have more than a dozen potential entry points for rats as they can get through gaps as small as 15mm, often through plumbing pipes and unscreened vents or gaps in the eaves and roof edges.

Warning of rat invasion for Cambridgeshire this autumn

BYANNA STARNES 08:40, 7 SEP 2017

As the weather turns colder and wetter, homeowners are at risk of finding unwanted furry guests
Cambridgeshire is primed for a rat invasion this autumn, according to the British Pest Control Association (BPCA).

Dee Ward-Thompson, technical manager for the BPCA, said: “The first evidence of rats in a home is often noises under the floor, in the walls or loft as that’s where most will head to once they’re inside.

They’ll also do their best to find sources of food, which means they can soon move to other areas of the house occupied by humans.

The average house has more than a dozen possible ways for rats to enter. They can fit through spaces as small as 15mm, such as plumbing pipes, unscreened vents or gaps in the eaves and roof edges.

The rodent menace around pipes has been tried to control using ineffective methods. The traditionally used methods for pest control involve the 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?

We at C Tech Corporation have come up with a viable solution for this problem.

Our product Rodrepel™ is an extremely low toxic, non-hazardous rodent aversive. This product acts through a series of highly developed intricate mechanism ensuring that rodents are kept away from the target application. Our eco-friendly products do not kill the target species but only repel them.

The products are available in the form of solid masterbatches which can be incorporated as a polymer additive in the pipes used for various purposes to make them rodent resistant. The masterbatch can be incorporated in polymeric pipes while they are manufactured.

The metallic pipes can be protected by using our liquid concentrate as a topical application. The liquid concentrate is compatible with all kinds of solvents. The liquid concentrate can be mixed with paints in a pre-determined ratio and painted on the external surfaces of pipes. This will prevent rodents from damaging the pipes. The product available in the form of liquid concentrate can be used along with paints and be applied near the areas where pipes are laid on walls and concrete. The product is compatible with all types of paints and solvents.

Our product in form of lacquer can be used to coat the metal and polymeric pipes used for different purposes. The lacquer is a transparent product and it does not wear off easily. It can be applied on already installed metal and polymeric pipes.

These products work on the mechanism of sustainability and green technology and therefore significant in today’s time and date as ecology salvation has become the prime focus.

By using our products you can get an effective and long-lasting solution against pest nuisance.
You could thus contribute with us in using products which are eco-friendly thus causing no damage to the environment.

Super giants at supermarkets

Rodents belong to the family of Rodentia, the single largest group of rodents. About 40% of all mammals’ species are rodents. These rodents are found worldwide. The distinguishing feature of the rodents is their pairs of continuously growing, razor-sharp incisors. In order to avoid the overgrowth of these incisors, they gnaw objects around them. Rodents are prone to invading different places for nesting. They prefer places which provide them with food and protection from their natural predators.

Rodents use their sense of smell to find food. Though herbivorous, they can eat a wide variety of stuff. They eat fruits, vegetables, cereal grains; scavenge for scraps left by a larger predator. Supermarkets provide with a wide variety of food and household products. The main purpose of rodents entering the supermarkets is the food availability there. Here they find a variety of foodstuff to munch, along with a safe place to nest.

Rodents that seem very big can slide in like a jelly into the tightest of gaps and holes. They can enter supermarkets in many ways like roof joints, electrical cable entry holes, AC chases etc.

To ensure the presence of rodents, one can look for chewed wires, droppings, rat nest, chewed wood, and chewed insulation on pipes.

Rats are potent of spreading diseases like Salmonellosis, caused by consuming food or water that is contaminated by rat feces. Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS) is another deadly disease. HPS is transmitted by infected rodents through their urine, droppings, or saliva. Leptospirosis and rat-bite fever are caused by eating food or drinking water contaminated with urine from infected rodents.

Common insects that sneak into food supplies are ants, flour beetles, saw-toothed grain beetles, and carpet beetles. At times the food packets at supermarkets are found holed. Ants readily get attracted to such food. There are chances that the same foodstuff is being purchased by customers and later consumed. Cockroaches find easy access to the stored food. They eat rotten canned food and thus carry the same with them all over the places they travel. Such circumstances may give rise to the spread of diseases.

Grains are stored in a lot at supermarkets. These grains become a great treat for the rodents, and insects as well. Grains are mainly stored in burlap or plastic bags, metal or plastic container. Rodents are capable of chewing burlap bags easily, but if given enough time they can chew metal and plastic cans as well.

The conditions which encourage these insects getting into the grains are high grain temperature and moisture. Availability of such appropriate conditions increases the chances of insect survival and reproduction. To find bugs in breakfast cereals is too common because even bugs like to eat what we eat. Indian meal moths are very commonly found in grocery shops and supermarkets. Nuts are their favorite food.

These insects are the primary or intermediate hosts or carrier of human diseases. There are many bacterial diseases that are transmitted in some form of fecal contamination of food or water; either directly or indirectly. House flies are the primary agent in the spread of these diseases.

Supermarket giant Asda has been fined £300,000 after a home delivery depot Inspection found dead mice and flies near the food.

6th March 2017, Dailystar, UK.

Inspectors found dead mice and flies in the bread section while mouse droppings littered the shelves.

Baking ingredients were found gnawed by rodents, with fly pupae shells under shelves, spilt food and rotting coriander were also discovered in a catalogue of disgusting finds

The health department suddenly closed an El Super supermarket because of a rodent infestation.

 25th August 2016, NBC4, Los Angeles

Four citations for “vermin infestation,” including one classified as high risk were issued after an inspection by the LA County Department of Public health.

 Unexpected rodents in the shopping area!

9th July 2014, Daily Mail, England

Customer catches the video of three rats running around the Wallingford supermarket and the company admits it’s not the first time.

From the above mentioned interesting news articles, it is clear that the damage due to rodents and insects is not only limited to food but also to humans. Killing them won’t be a good way of getting rid of them as there is a possibility that the killed rodents and insects spread foul smell around the supermarket. It can be hazardous even if one of these creatures dies in the supermarket. Using pesticides would not only kill the target species but will also cause harm to the humans as well as to other animals. So the mechanism of repelling would be more effective here.

A unique and environmentally friendly solution would be just appropriate for overcoming this problem.

C Tech Corporation has come up with an optimal solution to counteract problems caused by such creatures.

Our product Rodrepel™ will solve these problems effectively. Rodrepel™ is a blend of extremely low concern, non-toxic, non-carcinogenic and non-mutagenic compounds. It is an environmentally friendly animal and insect aversive.

It is a broad spectrum animal aversive majorly designed to repel rodents and insects but is highly effective against other animals like rabbits and bears. It works by the action of repellence due to which it drives the rodents and insects away from the application. It has been designed for polymeric applications and natural materials like wood.

Our product is available in the forms of masterbatch, liquid concentrate and lacquer form. Supermarkets can bring in use these products to shield the food racks and other accessible points from wherein rodents and insects try getting in the supermarket. Thus our products will help to safeguard food.

Eat healthily, stay healthy!

Rodents damaging cable

Fact about all rodents is that they have incisors that never stop growing. They gnaw continuously to keep their choppers in check. Otherwise, their teeth would grow to such an impractical length that they would starve and die.

Rodents can cause considerable damage in many places, and that includes damage to electrical wires and cables. Rodents use their sharp incisors to gnaw food, they sometimes chew on things like wood or ducts, but they also chew on electric cables and wires. Places like station offices which are full of rush there the rodents make their houses due to easy availability of food which is thrown by the people so this causes the growth of this rodents to make their way easy to access food.

There are many people who find electrical wires in their house, office, cars, ships etc with bruises and scratch marks.

As a car owner, we are probably aware of the risks such as accidents and other threats. Have we ever thought of the threat and the risk that rats can pose in our vehicle though they don’t just damage your home when an infestation happens, they can cause serious damage to your vehicle too? The biggest threat to our vehicle concerning rats is the wiring. Thus sometimes it can be expensive and complicated to repair the wiring that can be damaged by a rat infestation.

Rats also cause problems by biting the electrical wiring in cars, trucks, and trailers. The damage can sometimes be very difficult to locate, resulting in large repair bills!

Insulation is not safe from rodents.  They will tunnel into insulation inside walls and attics, either to make a home or to gather soft materials for their nests.

Rodents build their nests in large electrical appliances, and chewing on or through insulation and wiring, which can cause the appliance to short circuit, or lead to the risk of fire.

According to the news article,

Investigation: Lawsuits claim rodents chewing through car wires
By Wendy Saltzman | Wednesday, June 21, 2017

A furry little culprit is causing big problems for car manufacturers and, possibly more importantly, for drivers whose vehicles are being destroyed.

Now lawsuits are popping up across the country claiming rodents are responsible, eating cars from the inside out. And it’s likely not covered under your warranty.

Critics say soy-wire coverings now used in many new cars are also a tasty food source attracting rodents. They’re chewing through wires and costing car owners thousands of dollars

We at C Tech Corporation are in a unique position to provide solutions to the problems caused by these creatures. Instead of killing our products repels the rodents. Our products results have been positive with our customers

At C Tech Corporation we make use of Mother Nature’s gift of senses to these rodents in developing a non- toxic & non-hazardous formula.

Rodrepel™ is a low-toxic, non-hazardous rodent aversive.

Rodrepel™ is a perfect blend of smart technology and green chemistry.

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, ISO, APVMA, NEA, 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 Rodrepel™ 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.

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

Our newly developed product in the form of a spray can be applied to the already installed cables and wires.

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

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.
