Rats are both economic and health importance. Rats may cause damage to products and goods due to gnawing and biting behavior. Besides that, infestation by rodents also effect human health as they are known to be the vector of various diseases such as plague (through rat flea), leptospirosis, salmonella, tapeworm (via urine and droppings), rat-bite fever, rat mite dermatitis and many more. Besides that, rats also carry secondary pests in their fur, such as fleas, mites and ticks.

Rats can be very persistent and if they manage to gain access into your home or business premises they can spread these diseases, cause considerable damage and contaminating food. Tell-tale signs of rat infestations include droppings (faeces), rubmarks, urine smell etc. Food facilities must be free from rat droppings/hairs under the Food Hygiene Regulations 2009 of Food Act 1983.

Rats, also known as rodents, infest your property to seek refuge for shelters and foods. Important urban species in Malaysia are the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus) and roof rat (Rattus rattus). A female rat could give birth to 6-12 pups, in which they will reach sexual maturity at about 3 months. An average life span for a rat is about 1-2 years depending on conditions such as food source, harborage and predator. Therefore, it is important to have scheduled rat control program to reduce their populations.

Primary rats control uses slow acting rodenticide baits. Rodenticide baits are placed using Tempered proof Rat Bait Station (TRBS) to be deployed at strategic baiting points as first line of defense. Secondary rodents control is by trapping with glueboards or cage. Rats control follows stringent management standards and protocols such as food safety, HACCP, GMP etc. Please contact us for details of this rats management program.
