    Dog Eat Rat World

    If a home has dogs and they have a rodent problem and we bait using a rodenticide, what happens if the rodents die from the rodenticide and the dogs eat the dead rodents? Will the dogs be affected? Will the dogs die?

    It’s Not Always Quality – Check Your Quantity

    I have a client that has converted an old barn originally built in 1917 into a residence. Being in an agricultural setting and all the variables that go along with such – like multiple food sources, surrounding plowed fields, sheep, goats, chickens, cows, etc. – it has a major mouse and rat problem. Each time I visit, around 30 Contrac Blox are gone, about 10 a day. The site is approximatel...

    You Smell a Rat?

    I am in need of some advice on a serious pest control issue. Since the end of June, I have had a Norway rat in an elementary school that got in during ongoing construction. Doors were left open, etc. I prebaited for four nights and set traps for two weeks with no luck. There’s no infestation, no droppings found and no sightings. Only two stuffed animals torn apart for the pea filling and o...

    A Possible Lack of Communication

    Many companies use chlorine bleach to clean their floors. I was asked by one of my colleagues if these cleaning products could break down the smell of urine and disorient a rodent population. Is there any research on this?

The buildings all have common basements that are primarily dirt crawl spaces. We have inspected the exteriors and sealed whatever openings in the foundations and siding we could find. When we are in the basements we notice what appear to be ro...

    Eat Poop and Die?

    I put a rodent box with Contrac bait in it near a customer’s chicken pen. They want to know if their chickens were to eat mouse poop, would it harm the chickens and would the eggs be safe to eat?

    A Trap In My Trap?

    What is your opinion of the use of glue boards inside multi-catch rodent traps? I see them as being important, especially in warehousing, to monitor insects and spiders. However, I notice more and more companies are not using them at all. Other than some attractants, I don't see a benefit from the boards related to catching mice. Should we use them or lose them?
