Protect your car from hungry rats

As a car owner, we are probably aware of the risks such as accidents and other threats. Have we ever thought of the threat and the risk a tiny rodent can pose in our vehicle though they don’t just damage your home when an infestation happens, they can cause serious damage to your vehicle too? The biggest threat to our vehicle concerning rats is the wiring. Thus, sometimes it can be expensive and complicated to repair the wiring that can be damaged by a rat infestation.

Rodents can cause considerable damage in many places, and that includes damage to electrical wires and cables. Rodents use their sharp incisors to gnaw food, they sometimes chew on things like wood or ducts, but they also chew on electric cables and wires.

The fact about all rodents is that they have incisors that never stop growing. They gnaw continuously to keep their choppers in check. Otherwise, their teeth would grow to such an impractical length that they would starve and die.

Rodents build their nests in large electrical appliances, under the bonnet, car engines and chewing on or through insulation and wiring, which can cause the appliance to short circuit, or lead to the risk of fire.

Rats also cause problems by biting the electrical wiring in cars, trucks, and trailers. The damage can sometimes be very difficult to locate, resulting in large repair bills!

A recent news reported for such a damage is as below:


TNN | January 14, 2020

BENGALURU: It’s not just traffic that gets motorists exasperated in Bengaluru. Rodent menace is turning out to be a major headache too. A rising number of motorists are thronging workshops with complaints of rats chewing or damaging wiring harness of vehicles, particularly cars.

Many take to online automobile forums to vent their anger over this nuisance. The most affected are those who leave behind their vehicles on trash-strewn streets due to lack of parking space. “I was planning a trip from Bengaluru to Ernakulam but there was some problem with my vehicle’s ignition. On opening the bonnet, I realised rodents had damaged some wiring.

The mechanic, too, said he is getting several such cases,” said Ramesh P, a resident of Indiranagar.

“There are several instances of supply wires to the fuel pump being eaten up by rodents. This problem is rampant across the city and rats often chew essential wiring of vehicles. Engine wires are primarily vulnerable. Sometimes rodents chew insulation covering the wires and this leads to short circuits,” said Vijay Kumar, a mechanic in Kengeri. He claims to be receiving an average of 10 cars with gnawed wires every month. At times, the cost of fixing such damages runs up to Rs 6,000.

Gearing up for the bedbug’s season

Chances are, you or someone you know has had a run-in with bed bugs. It might have happened in a thoroughly clean bedroom. Or maybe it was a hotel room, office or college dorm. 

Bedbugs are small, oval, brownish insects that live on the blood of animals or humans. Adult bedbugs have flat bodies about the size of an apple seed. After feeding, however, their bodies swell and are reddish in color.

Bedbugs do not fly, but they can move quickly over floors, walls, and ceilings. Female bedbugs may lay hundreds of eggs, each of which is about the size of a speck of dust, over a lifetime.

A bedbug infestation can be spotted anywhere, homes, apartments, hotels, hospitals, schools and college campuses, office buildings, retail stores, movie theaters, and even public transportation.

Invading the reader’s hub!!!

Timothy Healy once quoted “To those with ears to hear, Libraries are really noisy places.

On their shelves, we hear the captured voices of centuries-old conversation that makes up our civilization”.

This can best summarize how truly significant libraries are and their influence in catering to the imagination and consciousness of a nation.

We all know that books contribute to civilization, and therefore they must be treasured.  Jorge Luis Borges once said, “I have always imaged that paradise will be a kind of library”.  But imagine a paradise which is repeatedly invaded by unwanted intruders. It is tarnished – the picture-perfect paradise.

That is exactly how a library is when it is intruded by creepy crawly creatures such as termites. Books are a haven for readers- they are also a feast for termites.

Termites are known to feed on dead plant material, generally in form of wood, leaf litter, soil or animal dung. Owing to their great interest in woods many termite species are known to do great damage to unprotected buildings and wooden structures. Moreover, their habit of remaining concealed often results in their presence being undetected until the timbers are severely damaged and exhibit surface changes. Once termites have entered a building, they do not limit themselves to wood; they also damage paper, cloth, carpets and other cellulosic materials.

In April 2011, wood-eating termites were blamed for reportedly consuming more than $220,000 worth of Indian rupee note

Two weeks after its opening in Jan 2012 the Bloy Community library was attacked by termites with all the books completely destroyed resulting in roughly USD 10000 and more costs which would have to be incurred to address the damage done to the library.

While termite damage to books and cupboards was evident it was surprising to note that even concrete walls of the libraries were damaged.  

Further investigation and study revealed that concrete floors and walls develop cracks over time. This leads to holes in the pipes or wires and through the walls where termites can squeeze through.  Termites can tunnel best when the ground around them is moist. Concrete slabs keep some moisture directly underneath the home, which attracts termites. There is an urban legend that says that termites can eat through concrete to get into a home. In fact, termites do not eat concrete. They can squeeze through very tiny cracks, so it sometimes seems like they have eaten their way through.

A Popular Public Library Has Become Infested With Termites

Mar 13, 2018

When it comes to insect infestations, public libraries cannot catch a break these days. There have been numerous news stories in the media telling about various insect pests infesting libraries. For example, a few months ago a well publicized bed bug infestation occurred in a Boston library. As you can understand, many Boston residents were not happy to learn that they could have picked up bed bugs from their library. The library’s infestation of bed bugs has since been eradicated, but residents of Boston remain unsettled over the incident. Unfortunately, the insect pest situation in Boston is not going to improve any time soon, as yet another library has become infested with insects. However, this time the invading insects are termites, not bed bugs.

The Library Director, Jay Stephens, was the first to notice the termite presence, but he could not immediately identify the unusual insects as termites. Initially, Stephens noticed small formations on the ground-floor of the library. At first, Stephens thought that he was looking at ants and their anthills, but the insect’s strange appearance led him to assume that the bugs were termites. Stephens also found several individual termites crawling around certain remote locations around the library. Stephens promptly contacted an expert termite inspector in order to have the insects properly identified. The inspector took one look at the insects and wasted no time telling Stephens that termites were invading his library.

While there is a need to employ methods to address the damage by termites it cannot be overlooked that termites have a vital place in our ecology.

For a steady plant community to arise and persist, a delicate natural balance must exist involving plant growth, plant consumption by animals and insects, and soil development through rock weathering and re-cycling of nutrients from broken-down plants. Termites play an important role in nutrient dynamics by ingesting and redistributing minerals, fatty acids, vitamins, and 20 amino acids. Soils surrounding termite nests also have massive increase in fertility due to the higher nutrient status of materials eroded from mound surfaces. Hence we are required to select and choose for an alternative that is completely suitable for such scenario.

Termirepel™ a product from C Tech Corporation is a completely non-toxic, nonhazardous and environmentally friendly product designed for protection against termites without harming termites and destroying their existence in any way.

Termirepel™ which is an anti-termite has been designed for polymeric applications as well as for natural materials like wood. It combines the best of chemistry and green practices to give an environmentally safe product which keeps the termites away effectively while at the same time guaranteeing safety to the environment, plants, animals and fragile ecosystems. The product triggers a flight or fight response in the insects making them leave the area.

Termirepel™ liquid concentrate can be mixed in paints and can be applied to damaged applications, interior, and exterior of structures, shelves, cupboards, etc. The masterbatch can be incorporated into wires and cables which are used in wiring.

While the product in lacquer form can be used as a topical application that can be applied to furniture, cabinets, bookshelves, etc. The lacquer is compatible with all surfaces.

The product available in the form of wood polish additives can be mixed in wood polish and then used for coating wooden objects and articles to protect it from termite attack.

TermirepelTM insect repellent spray is an easy to use product that can be sprayed by anyone on any surface. It works against termites and a broad spectrum of insects.
