Dekriminator has developed several baits forms with a variety of food ingredients (toxic baits & non toxic baits) which is the key to the successful rodent population reduction. Non toxic bait is used to attract rodents and mice into the Rodent Live Trap, while toxic bait is used in Rodent Bait Station and or Rodent Tamper Box. These bait boxes protect the bait from weather and exclude non-target animals, large enough to accommodate several rodents at one time and have at least two rodent-sized openings.
Place bait boxes next to walls (with the openings close to the wall), or near burrows and in other places where rodents are active. Clearly label all bait boxes with appropriate warnings as a safety precaution. To prevent bait boxes from being tipped over, fasten them to the floor or wall. Secure the lids to prevent unwanted access to the bait.

DIY Prevention methods of rodent infestations
The best way to prevent a rodent infestation and contact with rodents is to remove the food sources, water, and items that provide shelter for rodents.
- Seal up holes inside and outside the home to prevent entry by rodents.
Mice can squeeze through a hole the size of a nickel, and rats can squeeze through a hole the size of a half dollar! Prevent rodents from entering the home by checking inside and outside the house for gaps or holes.
Where to look for gaps or holes inside your home?
- Inside, under, and behind kitchen cabinets, refrigerators and stoves.
- Inside closets near the floor corners.
- Around the fireplace.
- Around doors.
- Around the pipes under sinks and washing machines.
- Inside the attic.
- In the basement or crawl space.
- Between the floor and wall juncture.
Where to look for gaps or holes outside your home?
- In the roof among the rafters, gables, and eaves.
- Around windows.
- Around doors.
- Attic vents and crawl space vents.
- Under doors.
- Around holes for electrical, plumbing, cable, and gas lines.
Fill small holes with steel wool. Put caulk around the steel wool to keep it in place. Use lath screen or lath metal, cement, hardware cloth, or metal sheeting to fix large holes. These materials can be found at your local hardware store. Fix gaps in trailer skirtings and use flashing around the base of the house. If you do not remember to seal up entry holes in your home, rodents will continue to get inside. Outbuildings and garages should also be sealed to prevent the entrance of rodents.
- Trap rodents around the home to help reduce the rodent population
Choose an appropriate snap trap. Traps for catching mice are different from those for catching rats. Carefully read the instructions before setting the trap.In attics, basements, and crawl spaces and other areas that do not have regular human traffic, set traps in any area where there is evidence of frequent rodent activity. Some rodents, particularly rats, are very cautious and several days may pass before they approach the traps. Other rodents, such as house mice and deer mice, are less cautious and may be trapped more quickly.
Also place traps in outbuildings and in areas that might likely serve as rodent shelters. Natural rodent predators, such as non-poisonous snakes, owls, and hawks, may also help control and reduce the number of rodents outside the home.
If you trap inside your home, but do not seal up rodent entry holes, new rodents will enter the dwelling.
- Prevent contact with rodents by cleaning up your home, workplace, or campsite.
- Eliminate possible rodent food sources
- Keep food in thick plastic or metal containers with tight lids.
- Clean up spilled food right away and wash dishes and cooking utensils soon after use.
- Keep outside cooking areas and grills clean.
- Always put pet food away after use and do not leave pet-food or water bowls out overnight.
- Keep bird feeders away from the house and utilize squirrel guards to limit access to the feeder by squirrels and other rodents.
- Use a thick plastic or metal garbage can with a tight lid.
- Keep compost bins as far away from the house as possible (100 feet or more is best).
- Keep grains and animal feed in thick plastic or metal containers with tight lids. In the evening, uneaten animal feed should be returned to containers with lids.
- If storing trash and food waste inside the home, do so in rodent-proof containers, and frequently clean the containers with soap and water. Dispose of trash and garbage on a frequent and regular basis, and pick up or eliminate clutter.
Diseases directly transmitted by rodents
Worldwide, rats and mice spread over 35 diseases. These diseases can be spread to humans directly, through handling of rodents, through contact with rodent feces, urine, or saliva, or through rodent bites. Diseases carried by rodents can also be spread to humans indirectly, through ticks, mites or fleas that have fed on an infected rodent. The diseases directly transmitted by rodents are as follows:
Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome
Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome
Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis (LCM)
Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever
South American Arenaviruses (Argentine hemorrhagic fever, Bolivian hemorrhagic fever, Sabiá-associated hemorrhagic fever, Venezuelan hemorrhagic fever)
Types of Rodents
Rodents are found on every continent except Antarctica. They live in a wide range of different habitats from snow-covered tundra to hot deserts. Some species of rodent are also the common invaders of the human environment:
