PRADEEP Kumar : In INDIA, we have received the notification that glue boards might be banned. We use them inside bait stations in food facilities. However, snap traps & multiple cages are a no no inside a food facility. What do we do if glue boards are banned and other than exclusion and using wax blocks externally.Please advise.
