Anyone who visits and works daily on a farm knows that rodents like our warm facilities, delicious meals, and temperate water. Everything is free and sometimes readily available. Another gift in our all-inclusive package is that rodents do not face any predators inside the houses. Unfortunately, rodents can hang around and transmit pathogens including Salmonella spp., Infectious Bursal Disease Virus (IBDV), Chicken Anemia Virus (CAV), and Inclusion Body Hepatitis (IBH) from other premises and contaminated birds. For these reasons, the presence of rodents creates a high risk of breaking the biosecurity rules.
