Moore Concrete manufacture a lockable precast Concrete Rat Bait Box designed to assist farmers in the management of vermin.
Rats breed rapidly, are versatile in their movement and consume huge quantities of food in relation to body weight. Sexual maturity is attained in just two to three months. In the following year the female produces six to seven litters of six to ten offspring.
Signs of rat infestation include “runways”, smears, droppings, gnawing and tracks. A population of 100 adult rats, typically consuming 28 g/day, can eat their way through 1 ton of feed grain or finished feed per year. Their role in terms of disease spread and structural damage is also significant.
