Are rodents eating your cars? We have a solution to it!

An invention of the car revolutionized the lifestyle of humans. It gave rapid access to any place, giving us freedom and mobility. Probably no other invention, discovery, technological advance has created more changes in society. We use cars to visit our friends, travel to and from work, to run errands, to visit our native place, to go on an adventure. We enjoy long drives which help us in forgetting our worries at least temporarily.

Cars contribute to the development of a nation’s economy and wealth; hence it is really important that every aspect of the car is well checked for any damage. Earlier every part of the car was made from metal, glass and plastic; petroleum-based products.

Nowadays, in quest of making environmentally friendly products every leading car manufacturer like Honda, Ford, General Motors, etc. have started manufacturing nature-friendly biodegradable based products. Insulation wirings, door cladding, seat back linings, package trays, seat covers, floor mats are now made from biobased natural ingredients. Let us look at some examples of bio-based parts currently in production:

Daimler:

To demonstrate its commitment to the development of biobased materials, the door cladding, seatback linings, and package shelves of the Mercedes Benz contain process flax, hemp, and sisal. Seat bottoms, back cushions, and head restraints contain coconut fibre and caoutchouc (a source of natural latex). Under-floor body panels are made using the abaca tree.

Ford:

Ford has also demonstrated a commitment to the biobased industry. The 2010 Ford Flex’s third-row interior storage bins contained 20% wheat straw biofiller. Soy-based polyurethane foams have been placed in the seat cushions and seatbacks of the Ford Mustang. Part of the Ford Mustang GT RTD body is made of flax fibre-reinforced linseed-acrylate, which is a high-performance composite made of natural fibres embedded in a resin from the same plants.

Honda:

Honda has developed a plant-based fabric that is used for its vehicle interiors including seat covers, door coverings, headliners, floor mats, and other fabric-covered surfaces

Mazda:

In 2007, Mazda announced the development of a new fabric made entirely from plant fibres. Seat covers, instrument panel, door trim, and other interior fittings were to be manufactured using the same.

Toyota:

They make seat cushion material, radiator tanks and other components from bioplastics that use glycol from renewable sugar cane instead of petroleum-derived glycol.

Mercedes-Benz:

It uses recycled plastics in various components including wheel well liners, bumpers, air and water baffles; material from renewable natural fibres used in different components including interior trim pieces.

Biobased materials are used in the manufacturing of the automotive parts because they provide biodegradability due to the renewable nature of the source materials and they can be recycled. But as every coin has two sides this application also has drawbacks.

Plant-based wiring and furnishing in the car provide materials to rodents to build nests. Animals like a rat, pine marten, etc. have a pair of incisors which grow throughout their lives and to keep them in check they chew on anything sharp and hard like our automotive wirings, floor carpet, door cladding, etc. Also, these animals are attracted to the cars for warmth and shelter. Food stored in the cars attracts more animals.

An incident was reported on Feb 12, 2016, News on 6 in Oklahoma US, that Fellers Auto specialist owner, Tommy Fellers, said he’s recently repaired 13 rat-related problems. He said, “We’ve been seeing an enormous amount of damage to cars’ electrical systems and wiring and hoses from rats, mice, squirrels,”. He said rodent damage happens fast and is extensive. He has seen wires, sensors and connectors chewed apart. He said the rodents can even travel through vents and into the dashboard. “The last case we had on a Ranger, the guy drove it every day and it took just one night for this to happen, and it was close to $2,500 worth of damage,” Fellers said.

Meals on wheels: Hungry squirrels go nuts over this man’s Honda

‘I’m paranoid about this,’ says Ottawa man after rodents gnaw biodegradable parts on his eco-friendly car

By Stu Mills • CBC News • October 29, 2018

Lenard Broadhead says biodegradable materials used in his new Honda are so “eco-friendly,” hungry squirrels find them irresistible.

Broadhead, who lives in Ottawa, says the rodents have made a series of targeted strikes on his air-filters, motors and fuel injector wiring, with repair costs eating away about $1,000 of his savings.

Now his new routine is to remote-start his vehicle from a safe distance and then watch the underside for escaping squirrels.

“I’m paranoid about this because it’s freaking expensive,” Broadhead said.

Rodents May Have Flavor Fetish For the Wiring Insulation in Newer Vehicles

By Matt Posky on May 17, 2018

Since at least 2010, soy-based bio-plastics have been a popular alternative for wiring insulation in automobiles. But there’s a problem — rodents love how it tastes. This has allegedly resulted in a surprisingly high number of owners reporting that rats chewed through the wiring inside their automobile.

According to the Detroit Free Press, the growing rat problem isn’t the result of paranoia, either. John Pappas, the owner of Main & Hudson Service in Royal Oak, Michigan, claims he sees at least one vehicle every month with gnawed-on wires. “They’re going environmental on the wires,” he said. “There’s good and bad in everything. It is a common issue.”

Looking at above-mentioned facts and figures, there is an immediate need of a solution. We at C Tech Corporation can provide with a low toxic, low hazard, effective and efficient solution. CombirepelTM is an anti-rodent, anti-animal polymer additive. It is specially designed for the polymeric application. The masterbatch can be incorporated in insulation, wires, door cladding, carpet, plastic accessories, seat cushions, car covers, polymeric switch panels, components of ignition box, fuel tanks, fuel hoses, foam seats, etc. CombirepelTM lacquer can be coated on already installed wires, polymeric hoses, fuel tanks, battery box, ducts, door cladding, etc.

Our newly developed product in the form of spray is a must-have product for every car owner! The Rodrepel™ Rodent Repellent Spray is specially designed for cars. The product can be sprayed on the car components after clearing the dust and waste from the components. The product when applied properly repels the rodents and protects the cars from rodent damage.

Apart from the rodent repellent spray, we have come up with CombirepelTM pest repellent spray to combat all sort of pest menace.

 

CombirepelTM  works on the mechanism of repellence. It does not kill target species but only repels them.

Our product is FIFRA (Federal Insecticide Fungicide and Rodenticide Act) exempted and is also REACH, RoHS, and RoHS 2, ISO, APVMA, NEA, EU-BPR complaint.

CombirepelTM will be the best solution to keep rodents away from your cars.

Crazy Ant damaging wires and cables!

Crazy ants are different from any other type of ant. In fact, they’re actually deadly than fire ants crazy ants have potent venom that can knock down fire ants instantly. They are also known as the hairy crazy ant, raspberry crazy ant, and the Caribbean crazy ant.

Originating from the Southeast regions of US, these extraordinary ants are one of the weirdest species in the ant world.  Their existence is not only a nightmare to humans but they also pose mortal dangers to other ant species as well.  They earn the term “Crazy” because they are invasive, have a strange and unique appetite and also are suicidal!

The crazy ants can have multiple queens within one colony. Some colonies have up to 100 queens in them. Their reproduction is much faster than the other ant species!

Though the crazy ant threat to electronics has not been lost on the tech media, the insects are probably more a threat to your air conditioner than they are to your phones. The ants are more likely to get into fixed equipment, house wiring, and even vehicles.”

Crazy Ants crave for something electronic other than the normal sweet stuff.  They like to chew through electronic cables, components, and any electrical circuitry.  The craziest part is that they love to kill themselves when they eat into the live electric wiring!  And, as they get fried, they emit a chemical that summons their friends to the same spot (or their dead spot) to avenge their death!  All in all, your computers, TVs and mobile phones are no longer safe once a swarm of these ants attacks them. One can find crazy ants in areas where moisture is prevalent. Any debris, landscape timbers, firewood, and leaf piles can attract them.

Let us have a look at some of the news article.

Crazy ants’ a threat in the southern U.S.
May 19, 2013

Researchers at the University of Texas are warning that the invasive species from South America has the potential to change the ecological balance in the southeastern United States, largely because the ants can wipe out colonies of what’s been widely considered the insect villain of the region, the fire ant.

The crazy ants, officially called “Tawny crazy ants,” are omnivores that can take over an area by both killing what’s there and starving out what they don’t kill, said Ed LeBrun, a research associate with the Texas invasive species research program at the Brackenridge Field Laboratory in the College of Natural Sciences.

“Perhaps the biggest deal is the displacement of the fire ant, which is the 300-pound gorilla in Texas ecosystems these days,” LeBrun said in a press release. “The whole system has changed around fire ants. Things that can’t tolerate fire ants are gone. Many that can have flourished. New things have come in. Now we are going to go through and whack the fire ants and put something in its place that has a very different biology. There are going to be a lot of changes that come from that.”

Beyond the troubles they cause for the environment, the crazy ants can be a big headache for people because their populations are so dense, LeBrun said.

The crazy ant’s nest in walls, crawl spaces, house plants or empty containers in the yard, researchers said.

“If people living in or visiting invaded areas are careful and check for the crazy ants when moving or going on longer trips, they could have a huge impact on the spread,” LeBrun said.

Invasive crazy ants disrupt pollination in pumpkin
OCTOBER 07, 2017

There is yet another reason to be worried about invasive yellow crazy ants — these aggressive predators of native fauna also disrupt pollination in pumpkin plants causing crop loss finds a recent study published in the journal Biological Invasions. This is the first time that this has been recorded in any plant.

Pollination is vital for fruit formation. However, in the traditionally bee-pollinated pumpkin patches of northern Kerala’s Kasargod district, farmers now hand-pollinate their pumpkin patches, complaining of crop loss otherwise. Scientists at the Central University of Kerala decided to investigate why pumpkin pollinators here were failing.

Pumpkin plants produce separate male and female flowers. Watching pollinators visit 128 female and 112 flowers across 18 pumpkin patches, the team found that honey bees — the main pollinators of pumpkin here — visited female flowers more than they did male ones. “That’s because female flowers produce a better quantity and quality of nectar,” says scientist Sinu P. A., who led the study.

Since bees needed both pollen (a protein and nutrient-rich food for their brood) and nectar, they flew between male and female flowers, facilitating pollination. Crazy ants, however, feasted only on the nectar of female flowers across 15 of the 18 pumpkin patches they surveyed.

These results could have larger implications, not just for India’s pumpkin farmers — who cultivate pumpkin across 47,000 hectares and produce up to 10.31 metric tonnes annually — but other crop cultivators too.

Conventional insecticides have proven to be a failed solution to give effective results. These insecticides are toxic in nature. They kill target as well as nontarget species. They are also hazardous to human health. Moreover, species like crazy ants are not at all affected by the toxic effects of these insecticides.

C Tech Corporation offers extremely low in toxicity and low hazard product, Combirepel™ to protect the electrical application and cables from these ravenous insects.

It is an environmentally safe product that works by repelling the insects without causing any harm to the target or non-target species.Combirepel™ is available in form of a solid masterbatch which can be safely incorporated into the PVC insulation of wires and cables while manufacturing or coated on surfaces to keep crazy ants away from the application.

Combirepel™ is available in the form of liquid concentrate and lacquer which can be easily blended with paints and organic solvents and can be applied to already installed wires and cables, sockets, electric board etc.

Our newly developed product in the form of a spray can be applied to already installed wires and cables, it is compatible with all types of surface and can be sprayed by anyone

Warehouses: Susceptible to harboring unwanted guests

 

The Norway rat, roof rat, and house mouse are destructive rodent pests in and around farm facilities. This can be especially true during the winter months, as they seek food and refuge indoors. Rats and mice consume and contaminate food, gnaw on structural, mechanical, and electrical components, and weaken concrete slabs and walkways with their burrowing activities. They can also potentially carry diseases such as bubonic plague, leptospirosis, rabies, and bacterial food poisoning.

Usually, the first signs of rodent infestation are droppings or urine stains in and around buildings, because rats and mice are most active at night. If rodents are seen repeatedly during the day, it is an indication of an established population. It is estimated that for every rodent seen during the day around barns and poultry houses, there are likely 20 to 50 that are unseen.

Effective rodent control involves a three-step process. The first step is to “rodent-proof” the structure. This is very difficult because rats and mice can squeeze through holes just large enough to pass their heads through, as small as ¼ for mice and ½ inch for rats. They can climb through pipes; jump vertically three feet, horizontally four feet, and climb wires, cables, vines, and trees to enter a building.

Rats and mice have long been a problem on farms where food and nesting sites are plentiful. They are carriers of some 45 diseases and are capable of contaminating farm feed and water supplies helping to spread disease from contaminated to uncontaminated areas and from animal to animal. Many of these diseases are harmful to livestock and humans.

 

Evidence for pest menace,

SLO Food Bank: Health inspectors found rodent droppings at the warehouse

By KSBY | Dec 05, 2017

The Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County released more information Monday related to the unsanitary conditions health inspectors say were found at the organization’s warehouse last month.

Food Bank CEO Kevin Drabinski says after staff failed to renew its processed food registration license at its new San Luis Obispo warehouse, state health inspectors came out November 27 to check out the facility.

It was at that time Drabinski says evidence of rodent droppings were discovered at various locations throughout the warehouse. The food bank was then told no products could be moved in or out of the facility until further notice.

Poor storage eats up 48k tonne grain

TNN | Oct 26, 2015

PUNE: If only thousands of tonnes of food grain was stored properly in warehouses across India in the last three-and-a-half years, the country would not have run into such a severe shortage spiraling into a price rise in the essentials this year.

Country-wide data from the ministry of consumer affairs, food, and public distribution showed that of the total grain production in India, close to 48,900 tonnes was damaged in storage. Stocks usually come to the godowns after the Kharif or rabi seasons.

Experts said if India had not lost grain in this manner, more than sufficient quantity would have now been available to meet the consumption demand in the country.

Pest attacks, leakages in godowns, procurement of poor quality stocks, exposure to rains, floods and negligence cause losses.

Using of pesticides, rat baits, fumigation, glue board can be harmful to human’s health so instead of using an outdated control measure like the pesticides, we can make use of our products which repels.

We at C Tech Corporation are in a unique position to provide solutions to the problems caused by these creatures.

 

At C Tech Corporation we make use of Mother Nature’s gift of senses to these rodents in developing non- toxic & non-hazardous formulation!

 

Combirepel™ is a low-toxic, non-hazardous rodent aversive. Combirepel™  is a perfect blend of smart technology and green chemistry. This product acts through a series of highly developed intricate mechanism ensuring that the rodents are kept away from the application.

 

The product triggers a fear response in rodents thus protecting the application. It causes severe temporary distress to the mucous membrane of the rodents due to which the pest stays away from the application. The product triggers an unpleasant reaction in case if the pest tries to gnaw away the application. After encountering the above-mentioned emotions, the animal instinctively perceives it with something it should stay away from and stores this information for future reference. The fact that certain rodents are repelled is mimicked by other rodents as well. Thus, the other rodents too stay away from the applications. The unpleasant experience is imprinted within the animal’s memory and passed on to its progeny.

The product is compliant with RoHS, RoHS2, and REACH, APVM, BPR and is FIFRA exempted. Our eco-friendly products do not kill the target species but only repel them.

How to get rid of booklice?

Booklice are small, almost microscopic insects that are grouped together in the insect order Psocoptera.

Booklice are very common in libraries, paper storage warehouses, packing and shipping warehouses that contain a lot of cardboard boxes, accounting and billing offices, large secretarial offices, and other places in which large quantities of paper are stored or used on a daily basis.

In houses, these small insects can be found infesting cereals, grits, flour, and grain in the kitchen or basement. They can be very common in the late summer when temperatures and relative humidity are high. The most favourable environment for booklice is one of high temperature and relative humidity.

These pests are found inside your food packages it is because it is too humid where you store your food. High humidity promotes mold growth in cereals and other stored food products, and this mold is what draws book-lice in. You can protect stored food by keeping them in sealed plastic containers and by keeping stored food areas dry.

Areas that have the most moisture will lure these pests in, areas such as basements, attics, closets, and other storage areas, which is why it is important to make sure that valuables stored in these areas are in sealed plastic totes.

Libraries often find the pest a real problem as they like to feed on the paste found in a book’s binding. Booklice also eat lichen and microscopic mould. They prefer the dark so will scuttle off if exposed to daylight and are often found in rooms where there is a lack of ventilation and light, such as kitchens. Most often they are found in cupboards and food, which can be very unpleasant.

Here are a few pieces of evidence:

Bedbugs, book lice temporarily close downtown branch of Lynchburg Public Library

Alissa Smith, The News and Advance │Nov 28, 2017

The downtown branch of the Lynchburg Public Library closed Tuesday afternoon due to a case of bedbugs and book lice, Library Director Marilyn Martin said.

The pests were confined to the new book area and traced to a single book, which was immediately bagged, Martin said. She declined to name the book’s title to preserve the renter’s privacy.

“Any public building that has people in and out has problems with lice, fleas, bedbugs, all kinds of things,” she said.

Meet The Tiny Critters Thriving In Your Carpet, Kitchen And Bed

Josh Cassidy, NPR │May 11, 2016

A recent study published in the journal PeerJ took up the challenge of cataloging the large numbers of tiny animals — arthropods — that live in modern human dwellings. In 50 houses in and around Raleigh, N. C., the research team found about a hundred different species of arthropods in each home. The tally included familiar types — like flies, spiders and ants — but also some species that are less well known, such as gall wasps and book lice.

As booklice are resistant to pesticides, they do not get affected by the pesticides.

In order to keep the booklice away we do require a strong result and for this, our product Combirepel™  manufactured by C Tech Corporation is an anti-insect aversive which repels insects.

Combirepel™ works on the mechanism of repellency. It temporarily inhibits the mating cycle of the insects. The product impairs the ability of the insects to reproduce, that is the insects will not lay eggs or the laid eggs will be infertile. The product causes feeding disruption in an insect by triggering an unpleasant reaction within the insect which might try to feed on the application.

The product temporarily blocks the reproduction system of the insects by hindering the release of the vital hormones for growth.

Combirepel™  is an extremely low concern, low toxic, low hazard, non-carcinogenic and non-mutagenic insect aversive. It does not kill or cause harm to insects as well as to the environment which indirectly helps to maintain the ecological balance.

Combirepel™  available in the form of the liquid concentrate can be mixed with paints and organic solvent in a predetermined ratio and be applied on the structure interior and exterior, ceiling, panels, so as to be protected from booklice.

Our product in the lacquer form can be applied topically to the applications. The lacquer is compatible with the surfaces wood, concrete, metal, polymer, ceramic, cables, wires which are already installed etc.

Our product in the form of wood polish additive can be mixed with wood polish and applied on the shelves, cupboard, doors, tables, chairs, and other wooden furniture to keep the booklice away from the application.

Our newly developed product in the form of a spray can be sprayed by anyone. It can be sprayed near the wooden articles, entrances, doors and windows, etc.

Combirepel™  is EU – BPR, RoHS, RoHS2, ISO, REACH, APVMA, BPR, NEA compliant and FIFRA exempted.

Rodent damage in Agriculture industry!

Pest menace in the agricultural sector is one of the most significant issues today in India which needs to be addressed immediately. Rodents cause millions of dollars in damages to field crops, stored grain and farm equipment every year. Apart from unpredictable rains, droughts and natural disasters insects are also the major contributors in lowering the agricultural yield every year. The damages can be categorized into two types, pre-harvest damages, and post-harvest damages. Harvest and post-harvest loss of India’s major agricultural production are estimated at Rs. 92,651crore ($13 billion) according to data published by the Ministry of food processing industries on August 9, 2016. The loss is almost three times as high as the budget for the agriculture sector.

In addition, the rodents carry more than 200 human pathogens which can cause deadly diseases that are transmissible to humans, animals, and livestock. Rodents are one of the serious threats to food production. The rodents will infest the premises like the farms, rural dwellings, refuse tips etc. that provide food, shelter, water, and safety.

Rodents as a part of their oral maintenance constantly gnaw on the various polymeric applications used in agriculture like agricultural films, storage bags, mulches, and even the drip irrigation pipes and tubing.

Giant Rats Spotted In Central Valley Counties
By STOCKTON (CBS13)

The rodent that has launched a multi-agency task force is now threatening San Joaquin County.

The rodent eats so much vegetation that it threatens wetlands and there could also be the loss of agriculture crops and levees. The animals have been sighted in three Central Valley counties and could make its way into the delta in San Joaquin County.

Fish and wildlife officials are trying to eradicate the rodents and have set up a multi-agency task force to come up with a plan to deal with them.

“They wreck agriculture crops, they are rodents; they carry diseases, they can pass the disease onto livestock on people, and their pets,”

Oh, rats! They’re eating away at our rice
By The Star Online

Penang’s padi fields are facing a growing and gnawing rat menace that began after the disastrous flooding of the mainland last November.

The ricefield rat (Rattus argentiventer), which can produce five to 10 offspring each month, has been ravaging padi fields in Kepala Batas.

To date, these rats have deci­mated crops in nearly 29ha in Paya Keladi belonging to 50 farmers, said Integrated Agriculture Development Area (IADA) Penang director Mohd Nazri Abu Seman.

Mohd Nazri said the rats struck at the 29ha of padi fields first because these 50 farmers were the first group to start the planting season in April.

He said ricefield rats had a nasty habit of eating the white pith inside young padi stalks, so the padi would not even have the chance to produce grain.

Mohd Nazri also said the destruction would continue because when the surviving padi produces grain, the rats then start feeding on that.

Ricefield rats are recorded as among the most damaging pestilence to rice crops in the world.

Traditional approaches to rodent population and damage management have relied on direct reduction of populations using rodenticide baits or rodent traps which is of no use.

We, at C Tech Corporation, manufacture a range of extremely low toxicity, extremely low hazard, and environment-friendly pest repellent products.

Our products are a blend of green chemistry and smart technology.

Our product Combirepel™ is an extremely low toxic, low hazard rodent aversive.

GNAW BLIMEY: Rats are seeking shelter from the cold in people’s homes

The disease-ridden vermin are seeking shelter as the cold winter months set in.

Pest control boss Paul Bates says the critters are on the hunt for somewhere “warm and cosy” to build nests.

Call-outs are set to rise by 40% in coming weeks.

The rodent invasion is set to cause millions of pounds worth of damage as they spark fires by gnawing through electric cables and beams.

A “double whammy” of conditions caused by the recent heatwave made rats even more likely to head for our homes, said Paul, of Cleankill Pest Control.

He claimed the scorching heat caused more of them to come out of hiding looking for water.

The expert warned Brits to “act now” and shore up homes as a blast of Arctic air threatens to send temperatures plummeting.

A Cleankill spokesman said: “At a time when we feel like bolting our doors and keeping the cold out, it’s not surprising mice and rats try to join us.”

Fall can mean home invasions by mice, rats

By Mari A. Schaefer │ Philly.com │October 15, 2018

Ah, fall! Colorful leaves, pumpkin spice lattes, football — and mice infestations.

Those curious little rodents that spent the summer foraging outdoors are now looking for a warm place to cuddle up and nest before chilly weather takes hold.

“We call it the fall invasion,” said Dion Lerman, an environmental health program specialist for the Pennsylvania Integrated Pest Management Program. “They follow plumes of warm air coming out of our homes that also carry food scents on them.”

About 85 percent of homes in the country, regardless of how modest or elegant, how clean or dirty, have had a mouse run through in the last six months.

Since these rodents are very common most of the people tend to get rid of them by using do it yourself methods like spray, traps, chemicals, ultrasonic repellers, etc. but are they really effective?

Mechanical traps stop working once a mechanical error occurs. The ultrasonic repeller is a device which emits a frequency that is unattractive to the rat’s ear. They serve to annoy the rat more than anything but rats can get used to the noise. The commonly used pest repellents contain diethyltoluamide which is harmful to humans and pests. Glue boards and Rat baits are more dangerous because there are cases where people have accidentally stuck to them.

So what can be a novel approach towards these rodent infestations?

We, at C Tech Corporation, manufacture a range of extremely low toxicity, extremely low hazard, and environment-friendly pest repellent products.

Our products are a blend of green chemistry and smart technology.

Our product Combirepel™ is an extremely low toxic, low hazard rodent and animal aversive. This product acts through a series of highly developed intricate mechanism ensuring that rodents are kept away from the target application. Our eco-friendly products do not kill the target species but only repel them. The product is compliant with ROHS, ROHS2, ISO, REACH, APVMA, NEA, EU BPR, and FIFRA exempted.

The product triggers a fear response in rodents thus protecting the application. It causes severe temporary distress to the mucous membrane of the rodents due to which the pest stays away from the application. The product triggers an unpleasant reaction in case if the pest tries to gnaw away the application. After encountering the above-mentioned emotions, the animal instinctively perceives it with something it should stay away from and stores this information for future reference. The fact that certain rodents are repelled is mimicked by other rodents as well. Thus, the other rodents too stay away from the applications. The unpleasant experience is imprinted within the animal’s memory and passed on to its progeny.

The products are available in the form of a solid masterbatch, liquid concentrate, lacquer, and wood polish additive.

The product available in the form of solid masterbatch can be incorporated into polymeric applications like wires and cables, pipes, etc. Thereby making the end application rodent resistant.

The product available in liquid concentrate can be diluted in paints and can be applied over the interior and exterior of the house, garages, etc. The liquid concentrate is compatible with all kinds of paints and solvents.

The already installed cables, pipes, and other application can be coated with our lacquer to protect them from the pests gnawing on this application and thus preventing the damage. The lacquer is a transparent product and it does not wear off easily.

The wood polish additive can be blended with wood polish and applied on the wooden articles and furniture.

Our newly developed product is in the form of a spray which is an easy to use product. It can be sprayed on the infested area to repel the rodents and prevent them from entering the premises.

By using our products, you can get an effective and long-lasting solution against rodent nuisance.

Bedbugs hijack plane

The phrase “Good night, sleep tight, and don’t let the bed bugs bite.” It may seem harmless, but bed bugs can be a serious problem. Bed bugs can be more harmful to certain people than others, causing health concerns ranging from itchiness to allergic reaction. Bed bugs are one of the most difficult pest problems to eradicate quickly. Bed bugs have existed since ancient times and are found throughout the world. They reside in unusual places; they are also likely to be found in small cracks near a bed or in comforters and bed sheets.

Bed bugs also spread infections which are more likely to develop in children, those with suppressed immune systems and the elderly, especially those who are bedridden and unable to walk. Also, some people bitten by bed bugs have experienced allergic reactions that require medical attention, especially when exposed to numerous bites.

The greatest risk posed by bed bugs is the psychological concerns resulting in lack of sleep and stress. Bed bug bites do not typically become visible until a day or more after the insect’s feeding, if at all since some people never react to being bitten. In extreme reactions, large wheels can appear. These wheels gradually reduce in size, becoming small, red marks. Bed bug bites can cause itching and may also result in swelling or blister-like skin inflammations. It is important to note that other non-bed-bug sources can result in skin irritations as well.

A bed bug bite affects each person differently. Bite responses can range from an absence of any physical signs of the bite to a small bite mark to a serious allergic reaction. Bed bugs are not considered to be dangerous; however, an allergic reaction to several bites may need medical attention.

Now a day’s bedbugs are also seen on airplane flights and they have been biting the passengers. Bed bugs can spread through close proximity with fellow travelers as well as their belongings. They also thrive where there is the frequent turnover of people. On airplanes, people are in close proximity, are not able to move other than on the plane, and their belongings are required to stay untouched for long periods of time. This is an excellent recipe for bed bug transmittal. The flight which was supposed to be a smooth ride has become a bumpy ride.

Let us have a look at some news articles

Airline Apologizes for Bed Bugs on Flight
By BBC

British Airways has apologized to a Canadian family after they were bitten by bed bugs on an overnight flight, BBC reported.

British Airways has apologized to a Canadian family after they were bitten by the bed bug
on an overnight flight,  BBC reported.

Heather Szilagyi was flying from Vancouver to London with her eight-year-old daughter and fiancé earlier this month, CTV reported.

After spotting the bugs, Ms. Szilagvi complained to the flight attendant but was told she could not change seats.

She said she and her daughter woke up the next morning covered in bug bites.

British Airways offered an apology to the family.

Bed bug outbreaks hit British Airways flights
By Sun

British Airways plane infested with bed bugs was allegedly kept in service despite staff knowing about the problem.

The Sun reports that staff at the airline logged the issue after the insects were spotted and passengers bitten on a flight from the US to Heathrow last week. So serious was the problem that an entire row 47 was closed in economy class, the newspaper said.

But staff claimed that engineers did not have time to deal with the bugs and bosses decided to keep the aircraft in service. Days later another “severe” infestation was reported on the same Boeing 747 during a flight from Cape Town to Heathrow.

But outbreaks do occasionally occur in the sky. “There are numerous cases of bed bugs being spread on airplanes,” according to Bed-Bugs.com, which offers extermination services.

Pesticides have detrimental effects on human health and cause harmful diseases so instead of using outdated control measures we can make use of our product, our product.

We, at C Tech Corporation, have thought about this problem in detail and have come up with a viable solution. The solution is named Combirepel™. We are the sole manufacturers of the product Combirepel™.

Combirepel™ works on the mechanism of repellency. It temporarily inhibits the mating cycle of the insects. The product impairs the ability of the insects to reproduce, that is the insects will not lay eggs or the laid eggs will be infertile. The product causes feeding disruption in an insect by triggering an unpleasant reaction within the insect which might try to feed on the application.

The product temporarily blocks the reproduction system of the insects by hindering the release of the vital hormones for growth.

Combirepel™is an extremely low concern, low in toxicity, low hazard, non-carcinogenic and non-mutagenic insect aversive. It does not kill or cause harm to insects as well as to the environment which indirectly helps to maintain the ecological balance.

Combirepel™ is available in the form of the liquid concentrate can be mixed in paints in a predetermined  ratio and be applied on the material which has to be protected from termites

Combirepel™ in the lacquer form can be applied topically to the applications. The lacquer is compatible with most of the surfaces like wood, concrete, metal, polymer, ceramic, cables, wires etc.

Combirepel™ in the form of the masterbatch, which can be incorporated into the polymeric applications like polymeric tree guards, pipes, wires, cables, polymeric material, instruments and equipment which we use at home.

Combirepel™ in the form of a spray can be sprayed to already installed wires and cables and any surface or material infested with pests.

Combirepel™ is thermally stable and does not degrade on exposure to heat and sunlight. It does not kill or harm the insect but repels them. It does not volatilize and does not degrade the soil. It is RoHS, RoHS2, ISO, REACH, APVMA, NEA compliant and FIFRA exempted.

How often do bird cause plane crash?

 

The most dangerous part of a plane when it comes to bird strikes is the engine.

Generally, bird strikes are a hit-and-run situation with smaller birds disappearing into engines and larger birds usually causing minimal damage to hulls, engines, or plane noses. The force will sometimes crack windshields, leaving dings and bumps on the plane.

Nearly 500 planes have been damaged by collisions with birds since 2000, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. Some 166 of those planes had to make emergency landings.

Birds can often get sucked into engines on takeoff, disabling the planes and forcing pilots to make emergency landings or crash.

Experts say bird strikes are an increasingly serious problem. They cause an estimated $600 million a year in damage to planes.

Flocks of birds are especially dangerous and can lead to multiple strikes, and damage. Bird strikes happen most often during takeoff or landing of the flight. However, bird strikes have also been reported at high altitudes, some as high as 6,000 m (20,000 ft) to 9,000 m (30,000 ft) above the ground.

“There’s a variety of ways a bird can take down an airplane,” Birds can disable planes, by flying into the engines and shutting them down. They can also penetrate the windshield or other parts of the engine, causing pilots to lose control. And apparently, when it comes to collisions with birds, size doesn’t always matter.

Most of the time pilots and passengers may have no clue that they hit a bird until they leave the plane and see a dent. In a small percentage of bird strikes, damage occurs, and in an even smaller percentage, there’s catastrophic damage.

The cost of repairing an aircraft damaged by a bird strike can vary from very little to millions of dollars when an aircraft is lost.

A tentative and probably conservative estimate of US$1.2 billion per year in damage and delays is the outcome of this calculation.

Flight engine damaged by bird leads to cancellation, loss of Rs 5 crore estimated
UPDATED: June 8, 2018, 10:48 IST

A GoAir flight flying to Port Blair from Kolkata had to return to the airport after a bird strike left the airplane’s engine damaged on Thursday morning.

With 160 passengers onboard, GoAir flight G8-101 was taking off around 8:30 am but was asked to come back to the airport after the pilot experienced heavy vibrations in the right engine during lift-off.

The pilot observed that the vibrations had crossed its threshold level. After the pilot did not send a call sign, air traffic control contacted him for confirmation. After the pilot informed them about the vibrations, the plane was called back to the airport.

At the air traffic control, officials suspected that something was wrong on the flight as the captain had not yet reported the call sign by which the aircraft is identified on the radar screen.

The engineers revealed that the bird had damaged six engine blades. The flight was ultimately canceled.

The damage cost is expected to be around Rs 5 crore.

Turkish Airlines plane makes the emergency landing in Kenya after the bird strike
OCTOBER 13, 2017, 11:03 AM

MOMBASA, Kenya (Reuters) – A Turkish Airlines jet carrying 121 passengers and six crew made an emergency landing in Kenya on Friday after one of its engines sucked in a bird, police said.

Flight TK 673 was leaving Kenya’s coastal city of Mombasa for Istanbul when the bird strike happened at around 4 a.m. The plane circled around Mombasa for an hour to empty its fuel tank before it landed.

No one injured. The plane was checked by technicians and took off again.

There is a solution with C Tech Corporation to keep the birds away from perching and roosting.

CombirepelTM Bird repellent lacquer is the product produced by C Tech Corporation to prevent the menace caused by birds. This product is specially designed to prevent bird perching and roosting.

It is available in the form of concentrate lacquer. The product causes the bird’s pain receptors associated with taste. Some birds use their sense of smell through which they recognize that the product is a threat. The product is specially designed to prevent perching and roosting of birds. Repellent evokes a physiological effect which the birds associated with sensory cue and then learn to avoid it.

The product is anti-corrosive and water resistant and has no effect of UV light. The product is transparent and is compatible with most of the surfaces which are easy to apply.

Thus using the bird’s sensory mechanism we can get rid of them without causing them any physical harm.

Rodents costing big bucks to homeowners

You might be thinking, “Mice are tiny! How could they cause so much damage? The same can be said for rats, squirrels and other rodents. Don’t let appearances fool you. Mice and other rodents might seem sweet and innocent, but the reality is the damage they can do to your home can be significant and costly.

The rodent can cause millions of dollars in damages to homes every year. Because rodent teeth never stop growing, these critters need to constantly gnaw and chew to keep their teeth short. It’s a survival tactic. If their teeth grow too long, they won’t be able to eat.

For some reason, rodents really love to gnaw on electrical wiring. This is bad news for the homeowner. Rodents will be able to make their way to every part of your home, from your attic to inside your walls, and everywhere else you have electrical wiring. They’ll chew on the wires and make them bare. As you may know, bare wires increase the risk of a fire.

It’s suspected that up to a quarter of all fires attributed to unknown causes are actually started by wire-chewing rodents.

Rodents will cause damage to your possessions for a few different reasons. They’ll tear your clothing and make use of any other soft material in order to build their nests.

They can also easily chew through your wood furniture in order to get inside to hide. They’ve been known to make their way inside large appliances such as dishwashers and stoves to make their nests.

Both plastic and aluminum pipes are no match for rodents. Mice and other creatures can and will chew through your pipes whether as a means to shorten their teeth or just to get through if the pipes are in the way.

Holes in pipes, such as your dishwasher pipes, can lead to costly flooding. If this occurs, you’ll not only have to replace the pipes, but also potentially replace the flooring, the drywall, and other ruined possessions, too.

Your air conditioning units, ductwork and other building places may seem a very inviting place for rodents to set up their homes. Rats and mice love to live inside of ducts and air returns, chewing through insulation and generally causing damage wherever they go. Not only that, but the diseased rodents’ germs may then be blowing through your house.

Attics and crawlspaces act as an invitation to rats and mice who love to practice chewing on thermal insulation. Not only that but if they are nesting in your insulation then you’ll eventually find that your insulation will be less effective. If rodents chew through the insulation around your water heater, they may be creating a fire hazard in your home.

Mice and rats are disgusting creatures that carry germs and disease wherever they go. Hantavirus, Salmonella, and Leptospirosis are just some of the dangerous diseases carried by rodents. Urine, droppings, and saliva from rodents all contain disease-causing germs which can also make their way into the air, resulting in problems with asthma and other allergic reactions.

Let us look at some pieces of evidence where rodents have severely damaged the homes and which lead to great monetary loss

Baby snapped playing next to dead RAT as army of giant rodents invade home

February 17, 2017 │Daily star

Carla Hazlett, 41, claims they have chewed her possessions and left droppings and urine all over her children’s clothes.

Carla said: “There are hundreds of rats and they are into absolutely everything. I can hear them in the walls and ceilings and they have dug holes in the cellar.

“I have found rat droppings and urine on my kids’ clothes in the cupboards so I have had to throw everything out.

“The rats have chewed all my carpets and it has cost me thousands – I had carpeted the house for £1,000 and I had to put a £1,500 three-piece suite outside because there were rat droppings all in it.

“The first time I saw one of the rats, I froze – there was two of them on the worktop in the kitchen just eating the cereal left over from the kids’ breakfast in the morning.

“It has just got worse and worse – I have been sat on the bed before just watching them run around me.”

Berkeley Neighborhood Deals With Rodent Infestation

September 6, 2017 │NBC Bay area

Residents of an East Bay neighborhood were not sleeping easy Wednesday night. They had rats on their mind.

The rodent infestation was so bad in North Berkeley that one woman had to temporarily move out of her home.

The rats are causing a lot of problems for Christine Simon and her next door neighbor.

“It started in May,” Simon said. “I got mysterious bites all over my body, very itchy.”

Simon’s dermatologist narrowed her problem down to rat mites. They are parasites that live on rats much like fleas.

“They take up to two months to die on their own,” Simon said. “Two months of going to bed every night and being eaten alive.”

The control of rodents is an integral step to safeguard health, lives, food, property, and economics. The use of conventional fumigants, rodenticides is no longer considered to be an effective solution to get rid of the rodent infestation as these rodents are becoming increasingly resistant to them, the traditional baits and traps are also proving to be useless in preventing rodents from invading our homes. The essentials used to make these products give ineffective results. Capsaicin is commonly used so as to prevent the damage. The pain receptors of the pests by now have got immune to the capsaicin.

Therefore, we require a long-term and sure shot solution that can help prevent the damaged caused by these rodents in our homes.

What can be an effective solution to the nuisance caused by these mice?

The solution available with C Tech Corporation to this nuisance is a onetime solution and the need of the hour for maintaining an ecological balance considering the significance of these rodents. Our products are a blend of green chemistry and smart technology.

Protecting your garden from grass grub

Grass grub is found throughout New Zealand and is considered New Zealand’s major lawn pest. It attacks the roots of grasses and other plants.

Grubs can be found within your lawn during the late summer months after the beetles have laid their eggs around July. Female beetles lay their eggs about one or two inches deep in the soil.

Grass-grub larvae are soil-dwelling grey/white grubs up to 15 mm long with tan colored heads. Typically found lying in a C shape. They feed on the roots of many pasture species and other plants.

Recent news reported for their nuisance were as follows:

This native pest is costing our economy millions – and it’s not alone

Pat Deavoll │ October 02 2018

They’re small and hungry, and a new report says they’re costing us about $500 million a year in damage.

They may be only a centimeter long – but with thousands of relatives, the native grass grub has been causing havoc to pastures and crops around New Zealand for the last 100 years.

In fact, a recent AgResearch study showed the impact of the pasture-pest was costing dairy farmers up to $380 million and sheep and beef farmers up to $205m each year, making it our most expensive pest.

Grass grub is an ongoing problem for the agricultural industry, and while research into control of the grass grub has been happening, an answer to its total eradication remains elusive.

Dead grass? Utah grubs may be to blame

By Intermountain Farmers | July 6, 2016

If you have dead spots in your beautiful lawn, chances are you want those areas restored to their dark green color as soon as possible. Usually, the culprit is damage caused by lawn grubs and immediate action is required.

However, dead patches may also be the result of not enough watering, especially in the hot summer. Sometimes sprinklers don’t cover all the areas in a lawn adequately or you may have a plugged sprinkler head you are not aware of.

Several insecticide products are available that are used widely. But these are harmful to humans as well as the environment since it degrades the soil. Using pesticides to combat the nuisance is not a feasible way.

C Tech Corporation can offer an eco-friendly solution to the nuisance caused by the corn rootworm. Our product CombirepelTM is low-toxic, non-hazardous and insect aversive. Our products work on the mechanism of repellence and they do not harm or kill the target species but generate fear or trigger temporary discomfort within the pests that keep the pests away from the application.

Our product works on the mechanism of repellency. It temporarily inhibits the mating cycle of the insects. The product impairs the ability of the insects to reproduce, that is the insects will not lay eggs or the laid eggs will be infertile. The product causes feeding disruption in an insect by triggering an unpleasant reaction within the insect which might try to feed on the application. The product temporarily blocks the reproduction system of the insects by hindering the release of the vital hormones for growth.

Our product is compliant with EU – BPR, RoHS, RoHS2, ISO, APVMA, NEA and REACH and is FIFRA exempted. The green technology-based product can protect the plants and prevent the loss caused by the grass grub and other insects as well.

CombirepelTM is available in lacquer form. These products can be directly sprayed or applied to the application as a topical application. It can be applied to the already laid pipes and tubing in the garden. The lacquer is compatible with most of the surfaces like wood, metal, concrete, polymers, ceramics, etc.

Our CombirepelTM masterbatch can be incorporated with various polymeric applications like agricultural and other protective films, pipes, wires, and cables etc. while they are manufactured. This will prevent the pests from gnawing on the polymeric application.

CombirepelTM is available in liquid concentrate which can be mixed in paints and be applied on the fences in the garden and farms. Thus, using our products, you can get an effective solution to fight menace caused by grass grub and many such insects!
