At Boos, we believe in the saying “prevention is the best medicine”. And if you’ve ever experienced rodents before, you know preventing them is a much better strategy than battling them. Let’s talk about some simple ways that you can prevent warehouse rodents in the long run.
Preventing Warehouse Rodents: Cleanliness
There are many ways to prevent a rat infestation from arising in your warehouse. But the most significant and easiest measure is simply to keep the premises clean. Try things like removing clutter (aka hiding places) and garbage (aka snacks) to a minimum. A clean warehouse will also discourage phenome odors from lingering. A thorough clean can easily be the most effective strategy and will strongly discourage rat inhabitation.
While this may not sound like a huge innovation for warehouses, many of them do not have automatic doors. And more often than not, they will leave their doors open the entire day. Owners should try to have automatic closing doors in their premises, or at the very least, dividing screens to hinder the free movement of rats. This small measure will greatly enhance your pest control ability. Normal doors when left open offer easy access to other pests as well. High-speed doors are a great option for keeping the food area secure as they are open only for a few seconds and remain sealed the rest of the time.
Sealing, Segmenting, and Inspecting
One of the most recommended ways of controlling rat infestations is by segmenting the warehouses and keeping the important locations of warehouses sealed. This creates multiple controlled zones, along with making inspection easier.
Inspecting the warehouses at regular intervals also makes up an important part of any good preventive measures. It is mandatory to make a regular, thorough inspection to spot any signs of rat infestation. Any signs of an infestation should be immediately addressed to prevent it from growing further.
