2 World Leader in Rodent Control Technology Motomco-A Division of Bell Laboratories, Inc. The Largest Manufacturer of Rodenticides in the World Motomco and Bell Have Dominate Shares in Our Respective Markets

3 Why Rodent Control is an Important Part of a Bio-Security Program?

4 Rodents are the #1 Vector for Disease Transmission Rodents are reservoirs for disease agents At least 35 diseases can be transmitted directly or indirectly to livestock & humans Diseases live inside their bodies and are excreted in urine & feces Rodents are accustomed to living with humans and farm animals increasing the likelihood of transmission

5 Rodent Diseases of Concern Salmonellosis Hantavirus Fowl Cholera Leptospirosis Bordetellosis Hemorrhagic Fever (Typhus) LCMV (Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis Virus)

6 Bio-Security Traffic Control Controlling who and what comes into contact with animals reduces exposure. Cleaning & Disinfection Ensuring people and machinery are clean and disinfected will greatly reduce pathogen exposure Reduction of Susceptible Hosts Animals with lower immune systems need to be vaccinated. Anywhere diseases can grow and multiply needs to be reduced or eliminated. Pest Control Controlling pests is essential to prevent disease transmission.

7 Rodent Control As Part Of A Comprehensive Bio-Security Program Phase I - Identification Phase II - Inspection Phase III - Implementation

8 Identify the Commensal Rodent Norway Rat Roof Rat House Mouse

9 House Mouse Weight: Total Length: Sexual Maturity: Gestation Period: Number Per Litter: Number Of Litters: 1/2-1 ounces 5-8 inches Reached in 1 month 19 days 5-6 per litter 6-10 per year

10 Norway Rat Weight: Total Length: Sexual Maturity: Gestation Period: Number Per Litter: Number Of Litters: ounces 12 3/4-18 inches Reached in 2-3 months 23 days 6-12 per litter Average 4-7 per year

11 Roof Rat Norway Rat House Mouse

12 Understanding Your Enemies Behavior is Critical to Control Rats: Are neophobic Will consume a lot of food once they feel comfortable Typically will live in burrows Mice: Are curious Nervous nibblers Rats and Mice: Prefer Corners for grooming, eating and nesting

13 Identification of Senses Sight Touch Smell Sound Taste

14 Rodent s Perspective Rodents have very poor eye sight

15 Identification of Senses- Touch Vibrissae- whiskers used like a blind person uses a touch stick. Rats avg. 8 sweeps per second. Mice avg. 12 sweeps per second. Paints a 3d picture in rodent s brain. Most prominent on face but also located throughout the body.

16 Identification of Senses- Smell Smell: Approx. 1% of rat s genes are involved in sense of smell. Pheromones- how rodents communicate (colony status, reproductive behavior etc.)

17 Identification of Senses- Taste Main Purpose is as a quality check. Can taste up to 250 parts per billion. Food Preferences- Newborns taste mother s diet through her milk and prefer the foods she ate when they grow up. Taste Aversions- react negatively to foods that made them feel ill. (Single Occurrence) Dietary Needs- deprived of a certain nutrient, they learn which foods fill that need and prefer those until need is met.

18 Corners v. Runways Corners Groom Eat Nest Runways Following Lines Pheremone Trails

19 Feeding Habits Rats eat 1 oz./ 24 Hrs. Usually only once/day Rats will hoard enough food to last them weeks Mice eat 3 grams (1/10 oz.) / 24 Hrs. Many small feedings Multitude of food sources

20 How much is that? Mouse Consumption = 3 M&Ms

21 How much is that? Rat Consumption = 33 M&Ms

22 Rodents Are Nocturnal Mode of self defense for rodents as most of their enemies are inactive during night hours Most dominant rodents will feed at night, daytime activity is a sign of a large infestation

23 Roof Rat Rodent s Range of Travel House Mouse 30 ft. 100 ft. 300 ft. Norway Rat

24 Phase II - Inspection Exterior- Perimeter- (Visual, Damage, Debris, Holes, Vegetation and Equipment). Interior- (Cold Cells, Cages, Attics, Walls and Foam insulation).

25 THREE-DIMENSIONAL INDOOR INSPECTION

26 Damage Wall insulation outside is a sign of wall nesting rodents. Use bulk pellets inside of walls or in difficult to place areas.

27 Debris adjacent to structure offer a safe harborage for rodents. Debris (How much does it cost your operation to replace lost insulation in the walls?) Holes in walls will offer easy access into building.

28 Holes Inspect for potential entry/exit points in structure walls. Tape or seal hole after baiting.

29 EQUIPMENT Be sure to inspect all equipment. Crushed Rock or Cement Borders help deter borrowing under slabs. Place a 1 1/2-2 apron around entire building use small gravel.

30 Phase III Implementation

31 The World Leader In Rodent Control Technology EPA CRITERIA FOR TAMPER RESISTANT BAIT STATIONS The revised criteria for tamper-resistant bait stations are as follows: 1. Resistant to destruction or weakening by elements of typical non-catastrophic weather (e.g., snow, rain, extremes of temperature and humidity, direct sunshine, etc.) 2. Strong enough to prohibit entry or destruction by dogs and by children under six years of age using their hands, their feet, or objects commonly found in the use environment (e.g., sticks, stones, broken glass, etc. -- stations stronger than "tamper-resistant" are needed in areas frequented by hoofed livestock, raccoons, bears, other potentially destructive animals, or in areas prone to vandalism); 3. Capable of being locked or sealed so that children and non target animals cannot gain access through the opening or procedures used to fill the bait compartment(s); 4. Equipped with rodent entrances, which a) readily allow target animal s access to baits, b) Deny such access to other animals larger than adults of the target species, and c) discourage entry by birds. Means for achieving these ends might include use of baffles, mazes, or small entrances. 5. Capable of being anchored securely to resist efforts to move the station or to displace its contents, or equipped with a mechanism which virtually prevents bait from being shaken out of the station after it has been moved; 6. Equipped with internal structures for containing baits and minimizing spillage and tracking of bait outside of the station or into readily accessible parts of the station; 7. Made of a design and color that is not especially attractive to children; and 8. Capable of displaying precautionary statements in a prominent location. These criteria for "tamper-resistant" bait stations identify the performance features required of bait stations by labeling when commensal rodenticide baits are applied in areas accessible to children and nontarget animals. Note that label requirements for using tamper-resistant bait stations apply to those who place bait, not to bait station manufacturers. EPA has no direct regulatory authority over the production and sale of bait stations unless they are sold with rodenticide baits.

32 Baiting Tips Fresh Bait Is Best Smaller Placements More Often Use Gloves When Putting Bait Out (Foul Odors May Make Rodents Stay Away)

33 OUTDOOR BAIT STATIONS 1) Bait stations are required for all outdoor above ground placement according to EPA RMD. 2) Tamper-resistant bait stations are required if there is a chance of non-targeting poisoning ie. birds, wildlife. 3) Bait stations must meet the tamper proof requirement. PVC and Tee Tubes are not tamper proof and do not meet EPA guidelines.

34 Perimeter Baiting Install every 50 Foot or closer in High Pest Pressure areas.

35 Outdoor Baiting Program Place bait and bait stations around the exterior of your building every feet Closer in high pressure areas Spaced out between buildings Intercept rodents before they get inside your building! The investment in setting up a preventative program outside is better than fighting an ongoing infestation inside the building.

36 Outdoor Baiting Secure chunx on vertical bait securing rods inside the station. Secure bait stations with: stakes, duckbills, patio blocks, chains or u-bolts.

37 Outdoor Baiting Continued Clean regularly Wipe out monthly Pressure wash yearly Keep debris out

38 INDOOR Baiting Program Identify high rodent areas where you can use bait and rats and mice will find it without endangering non target animals. Place bait stations off the floor and along curtain ledges where mice tend to nest and gnaw their way through curtains to get inside.

39 Indoor Baiting Continued Place bait stations every 20 feet depending on the size of the infestation. Mice are nibblers so make sure you place enough stations in their runway. Secure bait on plastic securing pegs inside the unit. Bait stations can be secured with stakes, duckbills and nails

40 Inside Direct Baiting Locate all rodent activity holes found along the side and end walls Spray each location with flouresant spray paint to identify location Apply Pellets or Meal bait in each hole and place duct tape or paper over hole Check daily if duct tape is chewed thru or absent and repeat process

41 HOT SPOT TREATMENT Make a list of monitoring trap locations that show elevated activity Use Meal bait & Bromethlin pellets mixture in egg cartons for elevated areas Place egg cartons with mixture on end walls every 20 ft to 30 ft apart Check cartons daily and replenish until activity slows down

42 Additional Baiting Strategies

43 INSPECT AND BAIT ALL ATTIC AREAS

44 Attic and Pit Baiting Scatter chunks in the attic space of each house 2x s per year Bait all sills in the pits to aid in eliminating all rodents from the house during depopulation Direct bait any mouse holes found in litter piles in the pits

45 Manure Pit Baiting

46 Baiting Pits You should install Motomco Rat Bait Stations along interior walls every foot until it is no longer feasible to check them due to height of Manure. Bait Blocks should be placed on nails of Knee walls and sill plates every feet between Bait Stations,

47 To Control Rodents... Motomco s Bait Rotation

48 Clean Out Use Meals and Acute Baits Place Bait in Trays Place Trays Every 20 ft. Clean Up Dead Rodents Unused Bait Can Be Stored for Use Later

49 Bait Stations Tamper-resistant bait stations keep bait away from livestock, pets and other non-target animals. Protect bait from dust, dirt, moisture and other contaminants, so bait stays fresh longer Help monitor rodent activity to determine areas of heavy and mild infestation.

50 Meet the EVO Ability to be Keyless. Block is in box. EZ Clean Removable tray. Can hold 8 Blocks along with Snap traps and glue Boards

51 #1 Seller World Wide One of the most palatable bait formulations ever. Proven success in the lab and the field Made with powerful, single-feed active Bromadiolone. The best overall active ingredient for safety and effectiveness.

52 Most Powerful Industry s top selling product to poultry and swine producers Made with brodifacoum. The strongest single feed anticoagulant available. Formulated with a unique combination of 16 human food-grade ingredients for the highest possible acceptance.

53 Fastest Kill Active: Bromethalin: Quick knockdown of heavy infestations Stop feed action use less bait No secondary poisoning animals consuming dead rodents will not be effected Non Anticoagulant ( Neurotoxin )

54 Why Rotate? Alternate Between Only Single-Feed Baits Alternate Between Different Modes of Action Disrupts Any Cycles/Bait Shyness Plays Into Rodents Natural Tendencies
