In a trend analysis you show what is there in each of the monitoring stations every time makes inspection activity. You can use bar charts, time series, etc.

Hello Premananda,


  What I do is make a chart in excel. Put the name of the pest in the title along with the year. So for example the title will read, "Trend Analysis for Ants for the year 2014"


On the X axis I put the month of the year: Jan Feb March etc.


On the Y axis I put the number of pest: 1 2 3 4 5 etc.


Of course you will have a trend analysis for each pests: ants, roaches, rodents, etc.

In the rodent setups I've seen there is a substance in the outside bait stations that isn't poison and the pest control person records the amount of activity that is seen when (s)he checks the bait stations.  You would use that data to trend the amount of activity you are seeing and you can break it up by side of the plant and time of the year so you can see where and when the highest level of activity is around your plant.

Many professional companies also have this built into their pest control programs as well.
