Is it an aesthetics thing? A cost issue? Either of those pale in comparison to what it's going to look like/cost if you have a pest control issue that initiates a complaint or a recall. 

A cost issue. And I agree with the all your'e saying.

The Food Scientist, you need to push HARD.............show you're management about the couple in Mongolia who just DIED because of plague infested rodents

 

 

It IS a big deal when pests enter........................not just because they chew on stuff and make a mess  but because they carry horrible diseases which can be passed to your employees and customers!

Bait stations are a necessary evil.......................cannot believe they want to pull them when you're already having problems with rodents.

 

Can i also guess management are farmers????? I say that because that's been my personal experience with this kind of ignorance 

 

I already informed them about how about solving our pest issue FIRST. Then perhaps gradually removing a few. And yes I think you can say the ignorant one is a farmer. HA! Good guess!

I suppose I'm preaching to the choir but sometimes it's nice to have your concerns validated by someone removed from the situation. Best of luck to you, Scientist!

Hello there,

 

 

A common trapping error when placing out mice traps, is to use too few traps. Even for just one or two mice, using six traps are not too many. Place mice traps at intervals of two-ten feet apart. In a typical residential example, use two traps behind the stove, two traps behind the refrigerator, and two traps under the kitchen sink. Most of the time, mice are caught the first night. In a storage room in a restaurant, two dozen traps may be required.
