Rats and mice are prevalent in almost all areas of the US. Vineyards offer a source of grapes for rats to munch on. Vineyard sheds and equipment also provide places for rats and mice to take residence in. Rats and mice in the vineyard can multiply quickly, and soon become out of control. Rodent droppings and urine can be a serious health hazard, and can even carry deadly disease when coming in contact with people. Rodents can also damage equipment by gnawing and chewing through wiring, etc.

signs of rats/mice in the vineyard include:

  • rat holes
  • rodent droppings
  • piles of grape skins left from rats/mice eating grapes
  • gnawing marks on stakes and vines
