Rats are highly suspicious rodents, and anything new into their surroundings will be treated with caution. Therefore, it is essential that the bait stations are placed alongside their usual surroundings and they can be covered in something that is similar to the current surroundings. For example, if the poison is being placed in a barn near a grain store, place grain around the bait station. If the poison is being placed near where bird feed is available, place the feed around and on top of the bait station.
Reduce the amount of water available to rats by fixing leaking pipes and by clearing other water sources. Rats must ingest between of 15 and 20g of water per day to survive. By providing this in their food, they have less need to search for alternative sources of water.
As rats have poor eyesight, they use their fantastic sense of smell to identify food sources.
In terms of successful eradication of a rat or mouse infestation, Pelgar recommend following the below 6 guidelines
- Tidy up – before baiting tidy the farmyard to reduce the number of places rats might like to nest, feed and drink.
- Look for signs – monitor rodent activity to help plan an effective baiting campaign.
- Choose the right rodenticide – no rodenticide is universal, there is always a product best suited.
- Follow a sound routine – know where your bait stations are, inspect regularly, keep protected, collect dead rodents.
- Stop new rats coming in – in winter new rats will soon fill the gap left by the eradicated population.
- Remain vigilant – re-proof any defences, re-asses and begin a new campaign as soon as new immigrants are seen.
Rat Baiting Patterns:
For low infestations (low rat waste and few burrows present) bait 180g of poison per 10 metres.
For more active infestations, bait 180 grams of poison per 5 metres. It is essential that 180 grams is used so please do not just guess.
To monitor the results, the poison has a dye that is shown through the rodents faeces to monitor intake.
