Tricks on Effective Pest Control of Rat Present in Farm and Garden


 
Home Improvement,Environment,Health
When you see a rat in your garden, try to work out where it may have come from and investigate closely to see if there are burrows and runs, rat runs are evident by a beaten track where they continually travel to and from a food source or cover area. Nothing grows in this track because rats continually urinate and this will keep rat runs clear of vegetation and give the rats a scent to follow when traveling in the dark.

Having rats in your garden is quite common and nothing to be too concerned about. There is no better way to dealing with rats outside than to use rat poison in a bait form. The important consideration is, where to place the bait and ensure it does not threaten non target animals.

On farms where food grains are handled and stored, or where livestock are housed and fed, it is difficult to remove all food that rats can use. In such situations, paying particular attention to removing shelter that rats can use for hiding, resting, and nesting is valuable in reducing rat numbers.

The simple method is to place bait in a proper rat bait station, which is designed to allow rats in to feed but to prevent non target animals like hedgehogs and cats from accessing the rat bait.If you neighbours also have pets, it would be advisable to inform them of your actions and to reassure them that you are using conventional rat bait stations in your treatment programme. Although trapping may be a consideration for outdoor control, you can very easily catch birds and other mammals and therefore we always suggest poisoned rat bait for outdoor control.Rat throw bags are usefull for outdoor use as you can throw these underneath a shed, where other animals are unlikely to venture.

Place plastic or metal rat bait stations adjacent to the rat runs or against fences and shed.We like the rat bait blocks for ease of use and safety so please consider them but you can use loose whole grain rat bait and pelletted rat bait. The blocks are better as they mostly have a hole through the centre of the block and the block can then be slid onto a metal rod within the rat bait station, thus preventing rats from removing the blocks from the rat bait station. this means you will be able to see exactly what has been eaten. With pelletted and whole grain rat bait, you don't know how much of the rat bait the rats may have removed from the bait station and stored for later use!!!!

When baiting for rats, it is important to maintain rat bait in the bait stations at all times, otherwise the rats may not consume sufficient rat bait to cause their demise. Check rat bait stations daily and refill continually for the first 7 days. After 7 days, activity by rats should reduce considerably and you may only need to check the rat bait every other day or so. Once the infestation has cleared, please remove the rat bait stations and the rat poison and store for possible future use.

Use enough traps to make the campaign short and decisive. Leaving traps unset until the bait has been taken at least once reduces the chances of rats becoming trap-shy.

Use of tamper-resistant bait boxes provides a safeguard to people, pets, and other animals. Place bait boxes next to the walls, with the openings close to the wall, or in other places where rats are active. When possible, secure the bait station to a fixed object to prevent it from being moved. Label all bait boxes clearly with the words "Caution--Rat Bait" or another similar warning.
