Agricultural and Rural Pest Control

There are many farms in Rural Minnesota. From livestock to crops, rats can cause problems for your farm. At Brothers Pest Management we know just how important it is to keep your farm rat free. With the possibility that the population can go from 2-15,000 in just a year it is important to us to eliminate the population fast. We maintain farms with our regular monthly rodent plan. This plan helps not only eliminate the population of rats that are currently infesting your property but also maintain a rat controlled property moving forward.

Rat Control

Rat control in rural areas consist of sealing off areas of entry into homes or buildings, trapping the current population infesting a structure and baiting the exterior population that is infesting an area. Proper ongoing control will decrease a population to a manageable level control.

Rat
  • The brown (Norway) rat also known as the common rat, street rat, sewer rat, wharf rat, Hanover rat, Norway rat, Norwegian rat and Parisian rat, is a widespread species of common rat.
  • The brown (Norway) rat is nocturnal and is a good swimmer, both on the surface and underwater, and has been observed climbing slim round metal poles several feet in order to reach garden bird feeders.
  • The brown (Norway) rat is a true omnivore and will consume almost anything, but cereals form a substantial part of its diet.
  • The brown rat can breed throughout the year if conditions are suitable, with a female producing up to five litters a year.
  • The gestation period is only 21 days, and litters can number up to 14, although seven is common.
  • The Norway rat reach sexual maturity in about five weeks. Under ideal conditions (for the rat), this means that the population of females could increase by a factor of three and a half in 8 weeks (5 weeks for sexual maturity and 3 weeks of gestation), corresponding to a population growing by a factor of 10 in just 15 weeks.
  • As a result, the population can grow from 2 to 15,000 in a year.
  • The maximum lifespan for a Norway rat is three years, although most barely manage one year.

Mouse Control

Mice control in rural areas consist of sealing off areas of entry into homes or buildings, trapping the current population infesting a structure and baiting the exterior population that is infesting an area. Proper ongoing control will decrease a population to a manageable level control.

Mice
  • Here's Mice often find their way inside homes as the weather gets cooler and food scarcer. Minnesota’s reputation for bone-chilling weather makes our homes the perfect place for them, especially when it gets colder. You see, it only takes a small crack or hole on the exterior for a small mouse to squeeze their way right in. And as long as they have what they need for survival – food, water, and shelter, mice will begin to rapidly multiply.
  • Mice can and do eat through just about anything. If it’s softer than their teeth, the will gnaw their way through.
  • Their front incisor teeth never stop growing and can grow as much as 5 inches in a year’s time.
  • They can jump 12 feet horizontally like a superhero and 12 inches vertically.
  • They don’t require water and thrive in the heat.
  • They have Spiderman-like abilities in scaling vertical surfaces.

Pigeon Control- Coming Soon

Pigeon control can consist of netting areas, placing spikes to keep from gathering, screening off areas of gather and a new product that works as a repellent. Brothers Pest Management will be adding this service in 2022.

Pigeon
  • Feral pigeons are widely considered pests, and are famous for being reservoirs and vectors of multiple human and livestock diseases.
  • However, It is rare that a pigeon will transmit a disease to humans due to their immune system.
  • Although feral pigeons pose sporadic health risks to humans, the risk is very low, even for humans involved in occupations that bring them into close contact with nesting sites.
  • Pigeons often cause significant pollution with their droppings, though there is little evidence of them driving out other bird species.
  • Pigeons are labeled an invasive species in North America by the USDA.

Flies

False Stable Flies

  • False stable flies are worldwide in distribution and are frequently found in livestock facilities and outside restrooms.
  • The false stable fly commonly breed in manure and defecate on food, which has been linked to the spread of some disease and illnesses.
  • Female adult false stable flies usually choose decaying matter as sites to lay the eggs. These nutrient-rich areas are ideal for the growth and development of the hatching larvae.
  • In contrast to adult flies, the larvae do not have a definite head. Instead, there are two grasping hooks that they use to cut and tear food.
Fly

Stable Flies

  • The stable fly resembles the common housefly though smaller, and on closer examination has a slightly wider and spotted abdomen.
  • The stable fly is abundant in and around where cattle are kept.
  • Stable fly maggots are often seen in the rotting manure near cattle and poultry.
  • The adult stable fly of both sexes feed on the blood of warm-blooded animals during the daytime.
  • For stable fly egg production, the female requires its abdomen to be engorged with blood.
  • The female stable fly takes approximately 2–5 minutes to engorge, after which it becomes sluggish for a while.
  • The stable fly eggs are laid among putrefying organic materials such as hay, manure, and wood.
  • The Male stable fly usually dies after mating and the females after laying eggs.
