Beaver Pest Control Case Study #
Remote Monitoring #
Beaver 24/7 is a digital remote monitoring system combining the use of digital traps, cctv and other monitoring tecniques with the goal of identifying and removing any causes of infestation. This is particularly effective in sites that have had long-term rodent activity.
This case study was carried out in a bakery with an ongoing mouse infestation. Activity levels flucuated week on week and more traditional trapping or baiting programmes were having little impact on the overall activity levels. The building was in a state of disrepair which was being blamed for the assumed regular reinfestation of the premises.
Digital traps were installed to get real-time updates throughout the site. We then used the data to create a map of the areas of highest activity. We also carried out a full proofing audit identifying potential ingress points. Once enough data was accumulated motion cameras were placed in areas of highest activity. The footage we captured was analysed.
Through data collected by 24/7 we were able to identify that doors and shutters were being left open regularly and allowing rodents to enter and this was picked up by traps being set off in these areas. 24/7 alerts us in real time therefore we were able to go to the site as and when catches were made and discover the site with doors propped open or shutters raised.
The real time nature of reporting achieved by using innovative measures condensed the length of time taken to analyse the root cause of the issue and develop a bespoke solution for the site.
