How do you know you have a rodent problem? Some of the signs to look for will include rodent runways or paths in and around your buildings, along with droppings and rodent burrows. You may also see holes in ceilings and walls or shredded paper and insulation.
How do you know the extent of your rodent problem? To get a good idea of the extent, you will need to find the spot where your rodent problem is most evident. Rodents are most active right after dark, so quietly observe and count the number of rodents you see during a specific time period (thirty to sixty minutes should suffice). This will give you an idea of the number of rodents you have. After you have begun your Rodent Control Program, take a monthly census at the same time of day and length of time to help estimate the effectiveness of your program.
Where do you put your Bait Stations? Bait placement is important to your overall Rodent Control Program because rodents will travel along well established paths between their nests and food supplies. They will not go out of their way unless they are forced to do so. Make sure your bait stations, rodenticides and traps are placed along these areas. An excellent rodenticide, improperly placed will not be as effective as a lesser quality rodenticide which is located properly. Location, location, location.
Will rodents eat any Rodenticide Bait? It is important to note that many rodenticides show good efficacy in laboratory conditions but do not perform very well in the real world. In the real world, the bait must compete with the rodents other food sources, such as grain, corn or livestock feed. A more palatable rodenticide will be accepted by the rodents and will lead to higher efficacy for your rodent control program.
