Rodent Control

Control of Rats and Mice:

Rats and mice are among the most widespread and cunning of the animals that live for their food and shelter. Because of this dependency they can sometimes be found even in the best kept premises. They cause epidemics and diseases. Apart from damage and food-contamination their presence can cause acute social embarrassment.

Rats are intelligent and elusive animals and not controlled effectively by merely placing traps and poison. Only a few are ever caught and the remaining quickly learns to stay away from these traps and baits. Rat control thus becomes a very difficult problem and requires the attention of a qualified pest control operator.

Pest Pro controls rats by a systematic study of rat behavior. Training of our personnel at CFTRI, a Government of India Research Institute ensures that the very latest and the best in technology are used.

Our rat control operates on two levels:

  • Elimination of existing rats
  • Preventing future infestatio

Rats are mainly of two types:

  • House rats and mice
  • Field rats

House rats and mice

They also infest offices, shops, godowns etc. Basically, they live indoors. Rats are very suspicious. That is why they cannot be easily controlled by just putting any poison available in the market. Even if some rats eat the poison and die, the remaining learn a lesson and stay away from the poison. This nature of rats is called 'Bait shyness'. To eliminate all the rats, we therefore use a different type of poison - an anti coagulant. It is mixed with a bait material which is very attractive to rats.

It is more effective because rats do not die immediately. They die only after about four days. They therefore do not become bait-shy and the entire population of rats start eating the bait. And after about 8 days, all the rats die.

Field rats

Field rats stay in burrows in the ground. They are poor climbers and cannot climb with the help of the pipes to upper floors. They are controlled by fumigation of their burrows. Burrows are fumigated inserting tablets of phophine gas. The rats die and remain buried in the ground, without any problem of unpleasant odour and disposal of dead bodies.

Prevention from Rats:

In keeping with our maxim that the best control is prevention, we place special emphasis on preventing re-infestation of the premises.

Chemicals can kill rats. They cannot prevent them. Rats can be prevented only mechanically. This can be done by closing all possible entry points, so that rats cannot enter the premises. If rats cannot be physically prevented re-infestation from surrounding areas may be frequent. In such cases we may be able to only minimise the population of rats and may not be able to eradicate them.

You can avail of this scientific rat control by entering into a service contract with us for a year. There is an initial intensive treatment for about 10 days. This is followed by periodical treatments every three months.
