How mice are poisoned in the field and in factories

3 minutes. for reading

Many enterprises are faced with the problem of rodents in their warehouses and production facilities. This can be caused by poor building construction, cracks or holes, or excess food available to rodents. Cleaning large industrial areas is a labor-intensive process, so many businesses sign long-term contracts with professional sanitation services to effectively combat the problem.

Farmland is also a natural habitat for rodents as they can easily enter it. Seeds and fruits located close to the surface of the ground provide easy access for these pests. Inspecting the entire area manually requires significant human resources, so many owners turn to pest control services to effectively control rodents on their property.

Rodents can cause damage to property and things, as well as to human health. Therefore, proximity to them does not bring any benefit to a person. Actions to destroy rodents should be launched without delay, since the longer you delay, the higher the costs of eliminating the problem will be.

What danger do rodents pose to humans?

Let's start by discussing why rodents pose a risk to human health. First of all, mice and rats are able to adapt to various living conditions, including garbage dumps, sewers, basements and other places. In these places, compliance with sanitary standards is usually lacking. This is why rodents become carriers of various diseases.

Viruses that can be transmitted through mouse feces include:

  • Tularemia;
  • Rabies;
  • Plague;
  • Salmonellosis;
  • Leptospirosis;
  • And others.

Many of these diseases have a negative impact on the nervous system, kidneys, heart and even the human brain. Treatment for such diseases can also be complex and lengthy.

In terms of material losses, rodents also cause significant harm. They spoil food, pollute water, destroy materials in houses and other buildings, using human belongings to build their nests. There are times when mice chew through wires and pipes, causing leaks and other problems.

If you find mice on your property, it is important to get rid of them as soon as possible. To do this, you can use chemicals that interfere with blood clotting in rodents and cause internal bleeding. There are also substances that attack the nervous, digestive and respiratory systems of rodents.

How do businesses process?

The goal of almost all businesses is to make a profit by producing goods and providing food for people. However, the presence of insects in production areas threatens the achievement of these goals. Mice carry a variety of diseases that can make food unusable, which also affects production workers, putting them at risk of contracting infections.

Regular deratization, carried out monthly, is an integral part of safety in educational institutions, public food places and medical institutions. In such organizations, maintaining high standards of cleanliness is imperative given their specialization and interaction with people. Preventing the appearance of rodents is possible by observing sanitary standards established in the region.

If, however, pests appear on the site, destruction is carried out as follows:

  1. Conducting an inspection of work and storage premises to determine the degree of “contamination” of the facility.
  2. Use of mechanical means of destruction such as traps and poison baits.
  3. In case of failure, call the employees of a professional deratization company.
  4. Carrying out preventive measures after final disposal of rodents, including wet cleaning, installation of repellent devices, repairs and other measures.

Given the possible presence of not only workers, but also service animals in the enterprise, it is important to take precautions to avoid accidental consumption of rodent baits. Placing traps in inaccessible areas and close to rodent routes ensures an efficient process. It usually takes about a week to kill the pests.

Deratization of fields

Detection of rodents in fields is usually relatively easy. The appearance of burrows, the presence of holes and fang marks on the fruits, as well as the presence of rodent excrement with a stale odor are signs of their presence. It is important not to start the destruction process right away, as this may risk losing future harvests and therefore income.

Timely detection of rodents on the site allows not only to protect the crop, but also to ensure the safety of one’s own health. Sometimes you may not notice mouse damage and accidentally eat damaged fruit.

There are several ways to get rid of rodents on the field:

  1. The use of small mechanical traps located in specific locations, since it is difficult to track their movement routes over large areas.
  2. Application of toxic substances to the burrows of mice and voles, as well as their routes, to accelerate the transfer of poison to the entire population.
  3. Distribution of foods preferred by rodents treated with poison or pest control.
  4. Involvement in the field of natural enemies of rodents, such as dogs, cats and other predatory animals that hunt mice in the wild.

Treatments can be carried out by a variety of means, depending on the size of the rodent population, including edible baits containing poison, glue traps, sprays and gels.
