Are rats causing downtime and devastating your business? Here’s the perfect solution.

Production downtime is one of the biggest problems in manufacturing. It is costly and damaging to all manufacturing businesses. In simple words, unplanned downtime can be devastating to manufacturers relying on performance and quality to stay competitive in their niche.

Causes of production downtime

There are many factors that cause production downtime. Some of them are irregular maintenance of machineries, improper storage, rat attacks, etc. Researches show that rats are one of the most destructive pests for businesses. You won’t be surprised to know that 49% of businesses report frequent electrical damage caused by rodents.

Why rats chew machine wires?

All rats have a pair of constantly growing incisor teeth in their upper and lower jaw. This leads to rats continuously gnaw on objects to keep the growth of incisors in check because, if they get too long, it can be fatal for rats. That’s why rats are known to gnaw on electrical cables. Manufacturing machineries are loaded with electrical wires. Hence, they become easy target for rats. When rats gnaw through to the copper and the wires short out, you have to face the failure of electrical equipment leading to machine downtime. This can have a huge impact on the production cycle.

Recent studies have discovered that businesses lost an average of 8 working days due to rat infestations. Not only can rats impact business revenue, but they can also have a negative effect on brand reputation and overall operating costs.
