Rodent Monitoring and Baiting
Rodent lockable bait stations provided by Flick Pest Control can target both rats and mice.
It is extremely important to closely monitor and control mice and rats, as they can result in both financial and potential health risks. Large scale food spoilage can be attributed to rodents through contamination and physical damage/consumption. It is estimated that up to a third of the world’s food supplies never reach consumers, due to losses attributed to rodents. Rodents are omnivorous, consuming all types of food and food based products and they require water, which can be sourced from various contributing factors; condensation from machinery and service pipes, air-conditioning outlets, and water pooling in drain traps to mention but a few.
Risks Involved in Rodent activity
Rodents are carriers and transmitters of many diseases affecting humans. These include; Bubonic Plague, Typhus, Rat Bite Fever, Hantavirus, Leptospirosis, Rickettsial diseases, Trichinosis and most commonly seen in food poisoning bacteria such as Salmonella.
All Flick Pest Control rodent stations offer secure baiting to ensure rodents will not take the rodenticide bait away with them. This is critical in food handling premises as it reduces the risk of cross contamination. Securing the bait allows peace of mind to clients as rodenticide will not fall out of stations and affect untargeted species.
Number Bait Stations
Flick Pest Control’s rodent bait stations are strategically positioned, depending on the individual site requirements – established by a comprehensive inspection by a qualified pest technician – and secured into place. The rodent stations are usually installed around the perimeter of the building, fence lines, near entrances and in areas where the rodents may breed, hide or forage for food.
