Difficulty Measuring Holes
Rodents, such as mice and rats, cause significant damage to property, food supplies as well as vector diseases dangerous to humans. Pest control operators (PCO) and wildlife control operators (WCO) know that mice need 3/8 of an inch to enter a building, while a rat needs 1/2 an inch. But if you have ever been frustrated trying to use a tape measure or ruler to measure gaps around your building, then you know that there has to be a better way.
Fortunately, there is. The Rodent Inspection Tool is a simple yet powerful device to help you quickly and easily determine key mouse and rat entry points.
Rodent Inspection Tool
Does that hole look large enough to allow a rodent to enter? Stop guessing. Simply insert the appropriate end, e.g. narrow end for mouse entry and large end for rat entry, and quickly determine whether the opening is sufficient for the respective rodent. Does the Rodent Inspection Tool do anything else? Yes, it does.
The narrow tip end can be used to measure mouse scat length. The rat side end also measure rat-sized scat. If the scat is wider than the end then it is likely Norway rat. If the scat is shorter than the rat end, then it is likely Roof rat. But there is more to the Rodent Inspection Tool, namely it also helps you distinguish gnaw marks made by rats and those made by mice. If the gnaw marks are wider than the narrow point of the tip then they have been caused by rats. If narrower, then they have been made by mice.
Finally, the device has measuring hash marks to both inch and centimeter scale so you can quickly and easily determine hole size dimensions if you have to. The hole allows for easy attachment to your tool box or key ring.
