Rodent Control

Rats and mice are the most destructive vertebrates on Earth: they destroy or contaminate large volumes of crops worldwide each year. These rodents may cause fires by chewing and damaging electrical wiring causing major damage to barn structure & insulation.



Rats and mice are responsible for the spread of numerous diseases. Rodents contaminate feed supplies with viruses and bacteria that are detrimental to the health of your livestock. Therefore, a rodent control program is of primary importance to prevent infestations.



Rodent infestations cause damage to buildings. Holes, walls and insulation material have to be repaired or replaced: Rodents gnaw on these materials to grind down their continuously growing teeth.


Rodent infestation adds stress to your livestock, resulting in decreased production. Rodents consume your feed supplies.


For example, a single Norway rat can eat up to 11 kg (24 lb) of feed in a year.



To have a good rodent control program, consistency is important to prevent infestation. Well-attended bait stations and devices will keep your farm buildings less attractive to rodents seeking feed and nesting for reproduction.
