Sep 2, 2018

Rat extermination central auckland Imagine an initial population of two rats growing to more than 482 million in just 36 months, particularly in a large city such as London or New York. How is such a scenario possible? Consider the following: If a rat’s gestation period is 21 to 23 days, the size of a typical litter is five to 10 rat pups, and a rat’s birth cycle is three to six litters in a lifetime, than two rats today could quickly turn into 10 rats in just three months. Extending that same calculation, after one year, those two rats could potentially increase to 1,248 rodents. In 15 months there could be 6,232 rats, and so on, until after three years, nearly a half billion rats could be produced, resulting in a massive rodent problem. According to a visually powerful marketing campaign developed by the global pest management company, XXXX, …

Is America on the verge of a ratpocalypse? Experts and officials are documenting growing numbers of rats across the United States, a trend that shows no signs of slowing down. However, rats are notoriously difficult to study. The exact number of rat populations is unclear. In New York, for example, estimates range from 250,000 on the low end up to tens of millions. The only thing certain is the numbers are growing. In July, New York Mayor, Bill de Blasio, pledged $32 million to combat the rodents. The city wants more rat corpses, he announced. New York may be the most prominent city in the United States to tackle its highly visible rat problem, but it certainly isn’t the only …

Mice are an old pest control issue!

Apr 25, 2017

Mice pest control grey lynn auckland If you ever get a house, eventually you get a mouse or so Ogden Nash once wrote. And science seems to be catching up with poetry. The standard thinking until now has been that the house mouse, Mus musculus, only began its intimate relationship with humans at the dawn of agriculture, roughly 11,500 years ago. In effect, you had to have a farm, not just a house, before mice moved in to raid the stored grain.It turns out, however, that the house alone. A hut even was enough to do the trick, according to a new study published Monday in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. M. musculus began to hang around with humans, the study’s authors wrote, at least 15,000 years ago, during the so-called Natufian era in the Middle East, when late-stage hunter-gatherers were just beginning to adopt a more settled …

Brazen rats ruin riverside picnics   Rats down by the Waikato River are being kept well fed by people enjoying a leisurely bite to eat and leaving their scraps behind. A mischief of rats is going rogue in the city. With the promise of an easy feed from an abundance of rubbish bin leftovers, the natural flight response of Hamilton’s riverside rats is being dulled. The brazen little beggars at Hamilton’s Swarbrick’s Landing are out in broad daylight and have even taken to beckoning for scraps, standing upright on their hind legs while park users dip into their hot chips. It’s odd behaviour. Rats are fearful creatures and largely nocturnal but Landcare Research wildlife ecologist John Innes said they are adapting. “Swarbrick’s Landing is used for a lot of picnicking and people are leaving a lot of food around and Norway rats, the species people are seeing in the daytime, they …

The Vancouver rat project

Nov 12, 2016

 “Pest control companies in Vancouver have said 2015 was a record-setting year for calls about rodents. Brett Johnson, president of the Structural Pest Management Association of B.C. told the CBC, “There’s been an increase for sure.” We don’t know how big an increase because politicians turn a blind eye to the problem  refusing to study, let alone address, the issue. Rodents of all kinds carry disease. As much as we’d like to think Black Death or rat-associated Bubonic Plague outbreaks will stay in the Middle Ages, unfortunately this disease isn’t bound to the history books. There have been 13 outbreaks of the nefarious disease between 2009 and 2013, including places like Peru, China and as many as 600 cases in Madagascar. Dr. Chelsea Himsworth, lead researcher for the Vancouver Rat Project, said there is a pronounced knowledge gap in Canada when it comes to rats. The rodent outbreak is not …
