Rodents Control

PEST FACTS

HOMO SAPIENS CO-EXIST WITH RODENTS THAN ANY OTHER MAMMAL ON EARTH

Rodents

Rodents are a home and business owner’s nightmare, capable of causing electrical fires due to their constant gnawing. Rodents can spread various forms of diseases and also contaminate 100 times the amount of food they can eat.

In a recent survey in the United States, rats were given top ranking in the pest table and although this may not be the case elsewhere, their potential for destroying food, building structure, electrical installations & spreading disease would certainly put them high on anyone’s list.

DIGITAL RODENT CONTROL

Commercial bar-coding is a feature added to the Exterminators Mobile App, with the purpose of taking the load off your employees: they don’t need to carry as much when they are out in the field and it simultaneously saves them time. The greatest thing about it is that it places you in a paperless environment.

Commercial barcoding allows our technicians to scan barcodes and update information through our mobile devices. Barcodes can be scanned either through the camera function on a smartphone or through a Bluetooth scanner used by itself or connected to a mobile device. The information from the scanned barcodes can then be organized into different categories such as Inspection Point Status, Target Pest Species Identified, Observations and Materials Used.

KNOW YOUR PEST

DID YOU KNOW THAT IF TWO PREGNANT RATS ENTER A BUILDING WITHIN NINE MONTHS IT WILL BE INFESTEDWITH 3000 RATS?

Rodents belong to the mammalian order Rodentia. They occurred about 2-4 million years ago and they are the most successful mammals on earth. A large portion of the success is due to their high adaptability. Rodents have been able to colonize most part of the planet except Antarctica.

Rodents are the largest order mammals with more than 2500 species discovered by 2016. Rodents represents about 43 percent of mammals on the planet. Rodents comprise the most common mammals in the world, both in numbers and species. The most economically important rodents in Sri Lanka are the Norway rat & the Roof rat.

Rodents are known as common pests, which describe their ability to successfully cohabit with humans.

The senses of rodents are adapted for their secretive lifestyles

They rely on their senses of tough and smell for most explorations, but also possess excellent hearing and taste.

Vision is adapted for night activity and is highly sensitive to motion

In general rodents are active at night

RODENT FACTS

There are many documented cases where building fires have not been started by short-circuits but caused when rodents gnaw electrical conduit!

 Did you know that if two pregnant rats enter a building (not infested with rats) within nine months it will be infested with 3000 rats

 Mice produce some 50-60 droppings per night & urinate frequently

 In mouse infested environments, people may suffer from stress related illness
