Commercial Rodent Elimination
Keep Rodents Out
Ecolab’s rodent prevention and elimination programme protects your facility from rats and mice. The best way to manage risk is through an integrated approach to pest management, using a range of techniques, tools and systems that achieve long-term control of pest activity. An ‘outside-in approach’ focuses on minimising activity in high risk areas, tracing back to the root cause. With regards to rodents, the outside-in approach means reducing rodent pressure on the exterior, establishing a solid barrier to keep them out and responding quickly to eliminate interior activity.
Ecolab’s Outside-in Approach to Rodent Control
There are three layers to complete rodent protection;
This is the first line of defence – identifying and reducing pest pressure externally is often the most effective long-term solution for establishing and maintaining a pest-free environment.
- Harbourage – deny harbourage sites such as overgrown vegetation or ‘rubbish’
- Food – ensure waste is stored correctly in secure containers
- Water – remove standing water
PEST FACT: Did you know, each day mice only need 3g of food and rats 30g?
Potential entry points need to be monitored and modified to reduce risk of rodents getting into the building.
Some of the most common rodent entry points include;
- Structural holes or damage
- Gaps in expansion joints or around pipes
- Delivery and loading bays
PEST FACT: Did you know, that mice can squeeze through a hole as small as 6mm?
The presence of rodents inside the facility indicates that there has been a breach across the first two layers of protection, therefore it is required to:
- Harvest – mass removal of large infestations through trapping
- Eliminate – complete removal via strategic placement of traps and attractants
