Increased scrutiny of rodent and bird populations around production farms is vigorously being recommended by all poultry experts due to the issue of rodents and birds spreading diseases. Recent inspections by the FDA have closed farms not complying with the Food Safety Modernization Act. Millions of chickens and turkeys have died or had to be destroyed due to infections.
1) Pest Control is the first line of defense in controlling salmonella and viruses such as Avian Flu which are carried by rodents and birds. Rats and mice are linked to poultry diseases such as salmonellosis, colibacillosis, coryza, pasteurellosis, mycoplasmosis, hemorrhagic enteritis, hymenolepiasis, capilariasis, and ascaridiasis (Donald et al., 2002).
2) According to Mississippi State a large rodent population may eat several tons of feed each year. The cost of using the world's leading pest management system can be recouped in just eliminating feed loss.
3) Using the U-Trap-It System to manage and correct Environmental Deficiencies will also help to reduce or eliminate wild bird infiltration thus reducing the chances for avian diseases such as bird flu to be introduced to the farm.
4) The U-Trap-It System's spatial analysis tools can also provide the user with points of possible access by rodents.
The U-Trap-It System is an indispensable tool to professionally manage pests and rodents by verifying that services are being completed, that corrective actions are being taken, and that there is a rigorous management effort in place to eliminate pests and prevent pest infestations. And, it makes your operation audit ready 24/7.
