Recently highly effective developments have been incorporated into Rodent Baits that are designed to increase attractiveness and as well as effectiveness. Improvements in palatability to rodents means that bait shyness is much less of a problem than it has been in the past. Increased attractiveness of the baits also means that rats and mice are less likely to reject baiting products in favour of alternative food sources which are frequently around kitchen storage areas.
Patented flouro technology now allows the bait to be more visible to rats and mice in dark areas and this acts to attract them more readily which further speeds up the eradication process and also allows improved monitoring of rodent activity.
Other developments with the active ingredients of new baits are also incorporated as they use dual active ingredients that reduce resistance and come together by combination to intensify the killing power of both of them. Anticoagulant active ingredients also have improved safety characteristics as opposed to the active ingredients that were used a number of years ago.
Furthermore, the new baits are very cost-effective because less bait is often required to achieve control.
Please call All Care Pest and Termite Control if you are experiencing any problems with rats and mice as they can become more prevalent as winter approaches. In previous articles we have pointed out the importance of achieving quick control of rodent infestations not only because of the risk of disease associated with them but also as there can be a significant cost in food that is contaminated and must be discarded and also damage caused by their constant gnawing on electrical wiring and building materials.
