So you found some rodent droppings in your work space... now what? Help improve your work environment and clean them up!
Pests thrive in the spaces “in between” where people work and spend time like between cubicles, under desks, and in hard to reach corners. It’s in these spaces that food crumbs, dander, and dust collects. This detritus may attract rodents, become contaminated by rodent droppings and urine, and potentially become airborne when disturbed. By following these directions and safely cleaning up these spaces and rodent droppings you can reduce indoor air pollutants and improve rodent management in and around your work space.
What To Do With the Materials?
- Place used paper towels with droppings, carcasses, or nesting materials, into a heavy duty plastic bag (3 mil) and seal shut.
- Dispose of disposable gloves, respirators, Tyvek coveralls and any paper towels used for the cleanup.
- Multi-use PPE should be immediately washed with soapy water and disinfected and left out to dry.
- Place sealed bags in an exterior waste bin.
