Non-Toxic Methods for the Control of Rodent Pests

The prohibition of preventive use of baits for derivatization containing anticoagulants by the European Union (EU), has meant a before and after for pest control companies. Now, non-toxic methods in derivatization treatments have acquired great importance. Therefore, we are going to tell you the central non-chemical systems for rodent control.

Changes in the regulations regarding the commercialization and use of biocides reclassify current ratings as toxic and limit their use.

In this way, the use of rodenticides is only allowed when the problem has already manifested and can not be used more than 35 days in a row, without an evaluation of the status of the infestation and the effectiveness of the treatment.

This, coupled with the growing interest in integrated pest control has meant that non-chemical resources for rodent control are becoming very important. The pest control companies in Bilbao and Bizkaia are adopting rodent pest control measures in both homes and businesses following the parameters dictated by the EU.

What types of rodenticides or pesticides can we use?

In the market, several rodenticides depending on the extent of the pest, and the surface to be controlled will be more convenient to use one or the other.

Adhesives (traps and adhesive plates)

This type of trap can be used to monitor the presence of rodents and insects. Its use is straightforward. You have to place the adhesive plates on the active routes of rodents. After its passage, they will remain stuck when passing through it. For optimal use, these plates have to be free of dust, debris, and without moisture.

Another system is the glued traps. A convenient mechanism for the control of small rodents. They are traps with a non-toxic tail that also allow cockroaches and other insects to be caught without using any poison.
