The recent revelations on rats found in convenience stores, well-known food stalls, and even upmarket bakeries have once again put rodents in the limelight and caused distress among Malaysians. Viral posts showing rodents, dead and alive at the aforementioned places highlight the enormity of rat infestation and poor hygiene level among the food providers here in Malaysia.
The most recent and widely shared post was a video of an atrocious rat nestled among grocery items at an established supermarket in Kuala Lumpur. Furious netizens expressed their disappointment and some even called a ban over the unhygienic premises. Thankfully, the property was ordered to shut down and can only be reopened after it passes the Health Ministry’s inspection.
How Rats May Threaten Your Business:
Managing Rat Infestation Effectively With Integrated Rodent Management
It is tremendously challenging to deal with rodents due to their abilities by nature. Firstly, they are agile runners and can squeeze through holes as small as a 20 cents coin (0.96 inches). This enables them to infiltrate almost every area of your premises. Besides that, rats are also known to be neophobic. This makes them wary and afraid of new things, hence, application of DIY baiting may not be effective. Even worse, they can produce 4-16 pups at once! Given all these challenges, DIY rat control approaches would not be able to do the job effectively.
Our Integrated Rodent Management is a holistic programme, proven to effectively control rats in the long run. This approach combines the application of the four (4) key principles.
