Rats are a common cause of problems, and their numbers continue to increase rapidly across farms, at storage locations and in ports across the Netherlands. In addition to carrying a number of diseases and damaging cargos, rats can also be the cause of other problems, such as gnawing through electrical wiring. Controlling rats is therefore essential, be it brown rats (rattus norvegicus) or black rats (rattus rattus), which are being seen in increasing numbers.
Controlling rats is made more difficult by the fact that many rats today are less sensitive to rat poison than in the past. This means that they continue to live for a period having ingested poison or are not affected at all. As a result, rat populations are growing, and traditional rat control poison alone is not a viable solution.
The applicable quality standard for rat control is KPMB IPM Rat Control, and Control Union Pest Management is IPM Rat Control certified.
Control Union has developed its own platform, called PAMS, to provide insight into pest control and make it easy for customers to demonstrate compliance with various quality standards. In the PAMS system, owners, quality managers , farmers and certification bodies can all find reports about inspections that have taken place. Reports from PAMS meet all BRC, Global Gap, FSSC 22000 and Tesco quality requirements.
