Rodents: Inculcate To Control Them

Rodents! Inculcate To Control Them

Rodents include rats, mice, hamsters, squirrels, hamsters and many others. While most of them do not cause societal damage, rats are an exception. Rats are the most troublesome rodents and can take away your mental piece in a variety of ways. Rats like to bite, scratch and lunge at specific things and cause widespread mayhem and bedlam.

Where are they found?

They are very commonly found all over India. They infest offices, homes, flats, bungalows, guesthouses, storage areas and a host of other places. They can bite through your wooden door, eat up all your stored grains, sink its teeth into you and cause an infection and destroy your crops.

What makes rats so dangerous?

•             Their teeth grow five inches every year. If their teeth do not get filed, it would grow longer than their body. So, scientifically speaking, they are genetically programmed to bite things throughout their lives.

•             They are social creatures and breed tremendously. That means, there is no shortage of rats.

•             Rats and mice can spread over 35 diseases.

•             Some rats can weigh 4 kilograms, and that is pretty scary.

•             They can bite and gnaw through lead and aluminium. Not even metals are safe.


What are the types of rats found in India?

•             House rat (Mus musculus)

•             Mice (Mus musculature)

•             Bandicoots (big rats)

•             Roof rats (Rattus Rattus)

All of them can spread diseases through their urine touching human wounds, bite, indirectly through flies and mosquitoes, dying inside a water source or through their excretion.

First step towards a rodent-free facility

The very first step is always to assess the routes which the rats use to enter and exit the areas. The method of the solution is arrived at only after taking these into the equation.

We also offer various services that are specifically modified to suit your requirements, so you do not need to go anywhere else!

The extermination process

There are essentially two types of methods to kill rodents, classifying broadly. These are indoor methods and outdoor methods. Sub-classifications essentially fall under them.

Indoor methods

a.            Trapping – These methods use essentially rat trapping boards, and are an effective way to dispose of rats. The boards are topped with cheese or butter, and the rats come to eat it. As soon as they step on it, the latch loosens and the rat is caught or killed. These methods have advantages like ready knowledge of whether it is dead or not. It thus prevents putrefaction and fetid smell. Also, they are safer for humans around. They are used in houses, hotels, factory floors and other indoor establishments.

b.            Use of poisons – This method is used only when the rats are baited into the traps and the poisons are used as a secondary measure. This is a way to ensure that the rats are killed. The commonest types of poisons are the fast-action and slow-action varieties. The baits are kept inside traps that are kept on the exit and entry routes of the rat.

c.             Use of electronics – These have not been demonstrated to work effectively. They do not kill rodents; they only sometimes succeed in driving them out. The problem with electronics and ultrasounds are that the effectiveness declines with distance, and when some solid objects come in between.

Outdoor methods

a.            Decontamination by fumigation – This is useful for garden houses, bungalows and outhouses. The rodents usually live in burrows in groups. In this method, we look for different holes leading in and out of the burrow. All the holes are closed and only one hole is kept open, and through that, a fumigant like a phosphate gas or methyl bromide is released, and then that hole is closed as well. The concentration must be sufficient to kill the rodents inside, and this is the method of choice to kill multiple rats holed up inside a burrow. Commonly used fumigants are powerful poisons like hydrogen cyanide, sulphur dioxide and carbon monoxide.

b.            Torpedoing – This is another method used to kill rats holed up inside burrows. Rat-kill poisons are mixed in copious amounts with rat food. All the holes leading in and out of the burrow are closed, except one. The poisoned rat food is inserted through that hole, and that is also closed immediately. The rats grow hungry are forced to eat the poisoned rat-food inside. They die of poisoning. These methods are widely employed in airports, railway stations, rural metro service stations, power stations and other areas that are open.
