We currently service a Bean processing plant with no responsabilty for mice. Can we furnish bait stations and bait with their people monitoring? What are rules governing this situation? They currently have live traps inside and would like to know what can be used as an attractant?

What will be your recommendation about dating rodent control devices for a weekly service in a non-food warehouse? Should we do it every visit and what will be the benefit behind that? Thanks

Rodents are not going into a bait station and consuming bait. They go around and over it. How can I control activity? I’ve used Contrac Blox and soft bait.

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?

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?

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...

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.

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?

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...

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...
