Rodents cause numerous headaches for stored goods factories and businesses. The problem is rodents consume basically all food items and damage furnishings they feel they have to gnaw on. Rats and mice are also a large health issue as they urinate and leave droppings everywhere they travel. Rats roam around large areas and enter buildings through gaps in roofs, underneath doorways and through cracks in the wall. It is also not common that rats can travel through and around drains and sewer pipes. Therefore the importance of protecting stored goods with rodent control is fundamental in today’s times.
An effective rodent control management plan should be very well thought-out otherwise it will not be successful. The key factors in rodent control should consist of sanitation standards and rodent proofing. Clients may see this as a time consuming task which needs to be explained.
Garbage is the most prominent food source to rodents. Garbage bins need to be sealed tightly to stop the luring of rats inside and around garbage areas. This also indirectly stops flying pests breeding in garbage. In addition removing unwanted goods like furniture or unused appliances removes homes for rats to live in. Consequently rodent control is a lot larger than just the removal of stored food items and rubbish.
