Advisory for the Orchardists of Valley-

Field sanitation: Removal of dropped rotten fruits, debris and grasses from orchards to discourage rodents from availability of food and shelter---Reduction in bund size: Reduce the size of bunds or boundaries around the orchards up to 30 cm to force the rodents to leave the burrows---- Burrow Fumigation: Smoking the burrow with cow dung + Maize straw/maize pith+ weeds with the help of burrow fumigator  

Chemical control (Rodent bait schedule):
 Day 1: Plugging of rodent burrows
 Day 2: Identification of live burrows for pre-baiting prior to poison baiting: For pre baiting with plain bait, mix crushed rice (48 g) + broken wheat grain (48 g) + sugar (2.0 g) and mustard oil (2.0 ml) and place it @ 10 -15 g/ live burrow

 Day 3: 2.0% Zinc phosphide* baiting during late evening (containing crushed rice (48 g) + broken wheat grain (48 g) + zinc phosphide (2.0 g) and mustard oil (2.0 ml) all mixed together) be placed inside the live burrow @ 6-10 g bait/ live burrow)
 Day 4: Collection and burying of dead rodents. Close all burrows at evening hours

 Day 5: Identification of live burrows.
 Day 6: Fumigate live reopened burrows with Aluminum phosphide pellets @ 2 pellets/burrow or 5-10 g pouch/burrow and cover with wet mud.
* Precautions: Since residual rodent population develops bait shyness after one baiting with Zinc phosphide, a minimum of 50-60 day
s gap should be given before it is used again.
