    Ratsmart

    I have been dealing with an ongoing roof rat issue at a pet store in a strip mall. I've tried T-Rex traps baited with a wide variety of baits including the dog food they eat the most. I catch some on glue traps but just young ones. The adults avoid all traps and the problem is getting worse. Another company services the strip mall and I only service the pet store. Any suggestions?

    Symptom Relief

    Our company uses Contrac Blox, Fastrac and Terad3. With Contrac, vitamin K1 is the antidote. However, for Fastrac and Terad3, there is no antidote, only treatment programs for sub-lethal ingestions. What are they?

    Squirrels with Non-Bushy Tails

    I have a customer with a roof rat infestation that I seemed to have under control, but in the last two months the problem has come back. To give you an idea of what’s going on, the house itself has no heavy vegetation around, just grass. I have sealed up every entry point that I could find. I also have four bait stations around the perimeter that have had no activity. There is heavy activit...

    Down and Out

    What would you recommend to prevent rodents from burrowing down into a crawlspace from the outside? If they have already done so, what is the best way to exclude them? I've heard of using screening in an L shape along the foundation as well as trenching gravel along the perimeter.

    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...

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?
