Rodents include rats, mice and bandicoots with commensal rodents being the ones which live with or near man. Rodents are considered as the Number 1 pest by mankind, since they are responsible for damage to his food at all stages from the field to their dining table. They are also responsible for the transmission of dreaded diseases to man and damage to his property by way of gnawing which may result in short circuit and fire hazards.

Being a mammal, rats are very intelligent and highly adaptable creatures. Rodent control or rat control is always a tough and challenging activity.

The rodent control strategy includes a combination of:-

  1. Baiting
  2. Trapping


Rodent control baits are based on a second generation single dose of rat poisoning. This bait does not require pre-baiting and is accepted readily by rats and does not cause secondary poisoning.

Rat Control Bait Station Boxes

The baits are placed in bait boxes which are strategically located at places frequented by rodents. Fortnightly visits are made to replenish the bait and monitor rodent activity. Dead rodents, if any, are collected and disposed off. 
If the surrounding open area is infested with rodents the burrows are treated by baiting.
