Control of House Rats
They also infest offices, shops, godowns etc. Basically, they live indoors. Ratsare very suspicious. That is why they cannot be easily controlled by just putting any poison available in the market. Even if some rats eat the poison and die, the remaining learn a lesson and stay away from the poison. This nature of ratsis called ‘Bait shyness’. To eliminate all the rats, we therefore use a different type of poison – an anti coagulant. It is mixed with a bait material which is very attractive to rats. It is more effective because rats do not die immediately. They die only after about four days. They therefore do not become bait-shy and the entire population of rats starts eating the bait. And after about 8 days, all the rats die.
