I'm going to do it in Excel. First, you just put number of each trap. Second, months of the year. Put D for dead mouse, or M - for missing bait. If you have 3 M or D in the row, then it's a trend. In that case you should do corrective actions.
Hope this will help you

Thank for your responce, mikysya.

Actually i have to prepare a report regarding the pest control (Pest Control Trend Analysis) to my customer who did audit last week, they raised a NC because i cant give them the pest control trend analysis. I have read all topic reagarding this and found that i can get the report from my pest controller. But the problem is when i ask my pest controller, he say that he didnt provide this kind of report to their customer (May be is a small company).

Your idea was great and may be i also will write some elaboration regarding the trend. But do i need write introduction? graph?or other?

By the way, thank you very much..........

You are welcome:)
As I understand, you don't do the pest control in you company, the outside company is checking traps for you? In this case, you should develop check sheet for them and they should check any activity in particular trap and sign on this sheet. After that you can do create a trend activity report

The pest controller should be able to provide you with the number of baits replaced, and in how many bait stations, otherwise how do you know as the customer that you are getting the service you pay for.(effective pest control)
Also if you do not have this information how can you prove to your auditor that your pest control program is actually working and how do you determine when to increase the service based on the pressure on the bait stations.
If you pest controller wont give you this information try a different pest controll contractor.

Dear Clarencestj,

I have attached two trend analysis-flying insects(insectocutor) and rodents(bait stations) which might help you understand the trend analysis.You can add the number of bait stations and insectocutors according to the number you have in your organisation.Below the graphs you can then include the corrective action that was done incase of any infestation.I have you can comfortably now close the NC.

Kamwenji Njuma

Dear Clarencestj

It is important that you understand exactly what you got the NC for. Was it the lack of data tracking. the lack of analysis, or both?

I would distringuish between simply providing data tracking via spreadsheets (which is important and is the basis of Trend Analysis), and providing some proper anaylsis of this, including numbers against targets (especially important for EFK analysis), and commentary explaining why things are happening.

I am aware of companies in the UK receiving NCs for all of the above.

If you would like to pm me, I can send you some of the documents we provide to our clients. I regret I cannot post them here as they are private materials.

You are right, mikysya. Other company is helping me for the pest control, but i have to check all the traps by myself ^^. i also prepare check sheet for my data collection, but data analysis is the headache part.

If you pest controller wont give you this information try a different pest controll contractor.


Hahaha...... i already looking for other more professional pest controll but this cant solve my problem and i still got 2 more weeks before the due date ;(

Nice paper from Acheta. I concurr with their conclusions, and certainly have found that DD traps are excellent for detecting small numbers of Ephestia and Plodia. To satisfy auditors, as standard, we date the back of each lure pad so that this can be shown to have been changed. Effectiveness does drop off in dusty, moist or hot environments, and you may have to change the pads more frequently than a standard moth funnel, but they have the huge advantage of being highly visible and very easily checked by client's staff - so a minor problem can be picked up before it becomes a major problem.

I guess R = Rat but, not sure if P = Pass.

 

Would that be logical?

Dear Mikysya,

 

According to your reply, I want to ask you some I don't know exactly. In our company, Pest controller didn't give us any pest control documents (i.e. Trend Analysis, Corrective Action). If I want to do myself for secure, please guide me how to do for Trend Analysis report and corrective action. And I made the pest control schedule for our site. Is it the same with pest control plan?

 

 

Thanks

 

Su

Hi Su,

 

These days many Pest Controllers will provide documents/analyses such as discussed above (maybe for a surcharge) but perhaps not everywhere. Insect analyses particularly require some scientific ability.

 

The nice attachments in Posts 6/8 illustrate the skills necessary for self-presentation of data in Chart form for Trending. Basically some experience with Excel.

As per post 10, the chart notation/usage for 2nd excel in post6 is rather "cryptic". I have offered a few deductions (=guesses) in the Word file following.-

Attached File  Comments on format 2nd excel,Post 6 .doc   30KB   36 downloads

(any other suggestions welcome of course)

 

For insects posts 6/8 look fairly self-explanative. Some further examples in files attached at end of this post.

For trending rodents I suggest in addition to Post6 above, have a look at the attachments here -

Notes

pc3, pc6 respectively mention some explicit corrective actions.

There is a forum discussion on Trend “Limits” here –
