RODENT

Rat and Mice Pest Control
Shield Pest Control employ a range of tactics and techniques to control and eliminate rodents.

This includes using the very latest in approved rodenticides, entrapment methods and sewer lifting. Each case is individually assessed to determine the most effective, environmentally sound and humane way to eliminate your rodent problem – and the controls needed to prevent re-infestation.

With Health & Safety being paramount at Shield, our bait stations will be tamper-proof where necessary to minimize ingress from non-target species. Some rodenticides also contain the chemical Bittrex, which deters non-target species from the poison if they did access it, due to its foul taste.

Rodent facts
• Rats are considered as some of the most troublesome and damaging rodents found in urban and suburban area.
• Common rats in Malaysia are the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus) and Malayan house rat/roof rat (Rattus rattus diardii).
• An average life span for a rat is about 1-2 years depending on conditions such as food source, harborage and predator.
• A female rat could give birth to 6-12 pups, in which they will reach sexual maturity at about 3 months.
• Rodents may cause damage to products, goods and health.
• This pest also consistently follows the same path while foraging for food, usually along the fence, wall, stacked merchandise, piping and sewage system.
• Sign of infestations include droppings, footprints, dark marking trails, burrows and urine.
• Rodents are opportunistic feeders and practically feed on almost any type of food.

Control Methods
• Bait Stations
External Perimeter Bait Station (EPBS) and Tamper-proof Rat Bait Station (TRBS) will be installed along the perimeter of the premise in order to create a defense line against the rats. In addition, it also serves as a monitoring purpose as it can provide information such as bait consumption and infestation level.

• Physical Trap
Rat cages or glues boards will be placed at areas where rat activities are high or near to their harborage.

• Rodenticides
Rodenticides are toxic baits and fumigants that are available for controlling rats. It contains toxic and attractant which will attract and at the same time poison the rats. This method needs to be performed with care as the bait is left exposed and might endanger kids and pets.

• Sanitation
Keep garbage containers covered.
Keep pet waste cleaned from the yard.
Store bulk foods, including pet food, in a sealed, rat-proof contained.
Screen drain holes on the bottom of dumpsters to prevent rat entry.
Sanitation will reduce the number of activity points for rats and make other control efforts more effective.
