Rodent control should be a cornerstone of your operation's biosecurity plan. The highest price you pay for having rats and mice on your premises is the health risk they pose to your livestock. Rats and mice are carriers of some 45 diseases, contaminating both your livestock feed and water. They can spread disease from contaminated to uncontaminated areas and from one animal to another. Although droppings are the most common way they transmit disease, diseases can also be spread via their fur, urine, saliva, and blood. In addition to disease concerns, rodents can cause feed conversion to suffer by spoiling and consuming livestock feed. Hog Slat offers rodenticide formulas from Liphatech® and Motomco® to help you combat and control rodents populations around your facilities.
