Direction for Use:

 

Crop Area Method of Baiting Remarks
Oil Palm Method of baiting : Commence bating programme when fresh fruit damage is detected in more than 5% of the monthly palm census.1. Place one bait at base of each palm.
2. Replace all baits taken after 7-10 days coin-ciding with the estate’s harvesting rounds. Always bait after harvesting.
3. 3-4 rounds of baiting would generally be adequate for normal rat infestation. For heavy infestation more rounds may be necessary.
4. 2 baiting exercises per year with each exercise covering as large an area as possible are recommended for he suppression of rat population in the estate.
Fresh fruit damage census is taken once a month, each time before any harbesting rounds. A 10% sample of the palms in each representative fields/block is adequate.
Cocoa Commence baiting programme when precentage pods damaged by rodents over total pods harvested exceeds 3-5%1. Place one bait at the base of every 5th tree.
2. Replenish all baits taken at 7 days interval.
3. 3-4 rounds of baiting would normally provide effective control of rats.
4. In cocoa/coconut inter-crop, areas and where squirrels are abundant, place bait in between cocoa branches.
Pod damage should be assessed in 10% of the total area.
Rice fields Commence baiting programme immediately after transplanting.1. Place one bait at every 10 metres along the rice field bunds. The number of baits required will depend on the total length of the bunds but generally varies between 60-100 baits per hectare.
2. Replenish all baits taken at 7 days intervals.
3. 4 rounds of baiting would provide good rat control.
For more effective rate control, baiting programme should cover as large an area as possible.
Industrial domestic premises Commence baiting programme immediately after transplanting.1. Place one bait at every 10 metres along the rice field bunds. The number of baits required will depend on the total length of the bunds but generally varies between 60-100 baits per hectare.
2. Replenish all baits taken at 7 days intervals.
3. 4 rounds of baiting would provide good rat control.
