For Safe and Effective control of Rodents
Rodent infestations on poultry farms can result in economic loss in a number of ways:
Feed loss - Rats will eat almost anything that could be classified as food including rotting materials and manure. However, they prefer good quality, fresh feed stocks - and this is plentiful around the poultry farm. Each rat can consume up to 30 g of food per day and will spoil much more. At a consumption rate of 30 g per day, 1000 rats will eat approximately 11 tons in a year.
Damage to buildings and equipment - Inside poultry houses rats cause damage to building structures, including foundations, water lines, electrical cables, etc. Damage to electric cables can lead to short circuits and are often the cause of fires and electric failures.
Damage to flocks - Rodents not only physically damage the building structures and equipment but they can also break and eat eggs and kill young chicks. Rodents are also major vectors (carriers) and reservoirs of poultry and zoonotic pathogens (pathogens that can be spread from animals to humans), including Pasteurella multocida,Salmonella typhimurium,S. enteritidisand influenza and infectious bursal disease viruses.
