Tamper Resistant Bait Station (TRBS)

Tamper Resistant Bait Station (TRBS)


Generally, there many ways to control rodent and one of them are using rodenticide. 3 type of rodenticide (acute, anticoagulant and fumigants) and those rodenticide are poison and highly dangerous. No one can predict what is an “inaccessible” location when it comes to children or pets. The rodenticide must be place in a safe covered 'thing' which cannot be reach by non target animals and especially the children. Yes, SAFETY. Safety is the most reason why we are using bait station.

To protect people and nontarget species, we modified the bait station with several criterias. To protect the bait from moisture, dust, weather and easy-damaged, the bait station had been upgraded into "tamper resistant" design. The bait station meet the safety criteria by constructing the TRBS out of sturdy plastic, resistant to destruction or weakening by weather (high temperature). It's strong enough to prohibit entry or damaged by hoofed livestocks or wildlife such as raccoons and even childrens under 6 years of age using their hands, feet or objects. The entry point readily allow target animals access the bait but not for larger animals such as dogs, cats, birds, etc. The color of the bait station as we provided a safety/secured place for rodent to get the bait.

Here again the keys why TRBS are useful:

  1. Protect bait from moisture and dust

  2. Provide a protected place for rodents to feed

  3. "Tamper-resistant" from kids, non-target animals, bad weather, etc

  4. Help prevent the accidental spilling out the bait

  5. Easy-to-use. Open to the side for fast, convenient servicing.

  6. Economical and environmental friendly user.

TRBS placement

Houses, office building, restaurant, factories, industry areas, farms and many more public area can be placed. But.....Proper placement of bait stations is just as important as using the appropriate bait. Rats and mice will not visit bait stations, regardless of their contents, if they are not conveniently located in areas where rodents are active.

The place must be between the rodent's food supply and their shelter. Position bait stations near rodent burrows, againts walls and along their travel routes. Look for signs of activity such as droppings, gnawing, tracks and rubmarks to help identify site to place TRBS.

It's also most important to get knowing their behaviour. Rodents usually will not go out their way to find baits. House mice seldom venture more than 50 feet from their nests or food, so place bait stations not more than 12 feet apart in areas where they are active. Norway rats will travel up to 100 feet from their nests so the bait station can be placed 15 to 50 feet apart. Rats are often suspicious of new or unfamiliar objects. Do not be suprised if it takes up to two weeks for rats to enter and feed placed bait stations.

Permenant bait station can be placed inside buildings and along the outside walls of buildings that are not rodent-proof. Avoid placing stations away from structures, such as along fencelines or the perimeter of the property. Perimeter placements may endanger nontarget species, while not substantially increasing target species control.

Rumah, bangunan pejabat, restoran, kilang, kawasan industri, ladang dan banyak lagi kawasan awam boleh diletakkan. Tetapi ...

Peletakan stesen bait tepat sama pentingnya dengan menggunakan umpan yang sesuai. Tikus dan tikus tidak akan mengunjungi stesen umpan, tanpa menghiraukan kandungannya, jika mereka tidak berada di tempat yang mudah di mana tikungan aktif.

Tempat itu mestilah di antara bekalan makanan tikus dan tempat perlindungan mereka. Kedudukan stesen umpan berhampiran lubang-lubang tikus, mengikat dinding dan sepanjang perjalanan mereka. Cari tanda-tanda aktiviti seperti kotoran, kuku, trek dan Tanga cakar untuk membantu mengenal pasti tapak untuk menempatkan TRBS.

Ia juga paling penting untuk mengetahui kelakuan mereka. Tikus biasanya tidak akan keluar untuk mencari umpan. Tikus rumah jarang pergi lebih dari 50 kaki dari sarang atau makanan mereka, jadi letakkan stesen umpan tidak lebih dari 12 kaki di kawasan di mana mereka aktif. Tikus Norway akan bergerak sejauh 100 kaki dari sarangnya supaya stesen umpan boleh ditempatkan di antara 15 hingga 50 kaki. Tikus sering mencurigakan objek baru atau tidak dikenali. Jangan terkejut sekiranya mengambil masa dua minggu untuk tikus masuk dan makan umpan stesen yang ditempatkan.

Stesen umpan boleh diletakkan di dalam bangunan dan di sepanjang dinding luar bangunan yang tidak tahan lama. Elakkan meletakkan stesen dari struktur, seperti di sepanjang pagar atau perimeter rumah.
