DETECTSAFE™ - WHERE THERE’S SMOKE THERE’S FIRE

Hi everyone and welcome back from MakeSafe™ Australia for the first time 2020. We sincerely hope that it is prosperous and safe year for everyone.

At MakeSafe™ Australia we believe that “ If You Change the Way you Do Things – The Things You Do will Change “ Pretty simple.

The following video was forwarded to me by #AmandaGoh the General Manager of #Compesti™ our Innovation Partner in Malaysia just before New Year’s Eve.

A Pest Controller who is a client of #Compesti™’s installed a Wireless DetectSafe™ unit within a FOOD FACILITY to monitor for entry points that rodents were using to gain access into the Plant.

DetectSafe™ worked well identify those areas however The Pest Controller never imagined what else he was about to see.

DetectSafe™ sent out THE FIRST ALERT late at night approxamtely around 11-30 pm from within the area of the Furnace Room.

DetectSafe™’s ability to monitor changes within its environment saw the heavy black smoke and upon opening the alert on the MakeSafe™ APP the Pest Controller was shocked as he watched live not only the black smoke coming towards DetectSafe™ but also the explosion.

The Pest Controller immediately contacted the Factory Owner.

DetectSafe™ continued to send valuable live footage of the fire to the Pest Controller’s MakeSafe™ APP who was at a safe distance until the fire was put out.

Luckily there was minimum damage to the Facility but more importantly there was NO LOSS OF LIFE.

#Amanda Goh from #Compesti™ has told me that even from the extreme heat of the fire, and the hot soot and ash that rained down on them, both BaitSafe® and DetectSafe™ survived and that the Pest Controller could still gain access through the MakeSafe™ Australia APP to DetectSafe™’s Encrypted SD Card to show the Facility Manager valuable footage of the events that had unfolded that night.

At MakeSafe™ Australia we believe that by designing and developing products that let YOU know of the potential dangers in places where YOU may not be or cannot go – instantly – and in real time-no matter where YOU are in the World, that people and property will stay safer and THAT’S GOT TO BE A WIN FOR EVERYONE

So whether it’s at your Home or Office, a School or Hotel, the Local Supermarket and Restaurant or even a Hospital or Cruise Liner just to name a few,
”The difference is not in what you can see, but how and when you see it that makes the difference”. both within building structures or externally
And that’s DetectSafe™’s point of difference.

So if you ALSO believe in making A DIFFERENCE to the safety of the things you love and value the most then please VISIT OUR On-Line Store or contact #Compesti™ Sdn Bhd in #Malaysia.

I have included the links in the text below this video, and have a great day from down under.

My name is Gary McMahon and thank you for watching. Bye for now.

Rodents not only bring disease with them but also the predators that hunt them into ceilings, walls and sub-floors. In Australia it is not uncommon for snakes to follow rodents into buildings and lay in wait for their victims often without being noticed from below.

Our video below shows the inside of a fixed ceiling void between sub-floors in a Food Manufacturing Facility. The void is only 150mm high and the only way to find evidence of rodents or entry points between areas currently would be to cut manholes or to pull down the whole ceiling.An extremely expensive exercise for the Client, but now thanks to DetectSafe™ through BaitSafe®’s small ceiling mount unit anyone can take a quick look around to see the presence of rodents and there tell tail signs leading to exit and entry points.Disturbingly DetectSafe™ also shows the gnawing marks on the electrical cables. This could have led to a potential power fault or even the unthinkable A FIRE.Now that DetectSafe™ has told us “what we need to know “ it’s time for BaitSafe® to take over and do her job.The Queens of Darkness.

Mislaid Rat Baits endanger Local Wildlife. Please if you must bait BaitSafe®

IQT_06-07-2012_NEWS_03_POIS03A_t325

Native animals are becoming the unintended victims of rat poison laid around Ipswich,
with possums and birds the most susceptible. Magpies, tawny frogmouths and some marsupials have been brought to the Orphan Native Animal Rear and Release Association (ONARR) with signs of poisoning, vice president Tara Goulter said.

"There has been a definite rise in poison cases over the last three months," Ms Goulter said.

"We've had a lot of birds who prey on mice and rats show signs of poisoning; I've had a magpie that was swaying and lethargic and tawny frogmouths have also showed symptoms.

"They're probably eating the poisoned rodents.

"Then there's been a few possums that eat the bait."

Ms Goulter said ONARR had received the sick animals from Brassall and Collingwood Park.

"There's so many other ways you can trap pests - humane traps are a much safer," she said

"You have to remember it's not just wildlife that could eat it."

RSPCA Queensland's Michael Beatty said the Wacol wildlife hospital had received many poisoned possums.

"Over the last month we've been getting a few in a week, and we've also had a few poisoned magpies and crows," Mr Beatty said.

"This time of year a lot of people put poison out, or lay it in the roof where possums might be living.

"Humane traps are best, but if people have to lay poison they should at least put it in a container so only rats can get to it

Rats Plague heads for Geelong Victoria

RAT_CROP-1_F10954599_744804.JPG

Plagues of rats and mice are making their way from the region's semi-rural and coastal towns into Geelong.

Pest controllers contacted by the Geelong Advertiser yesterday said they were run off their feet attending to calls about rodents. Con Toulas from Bay City Pest Control said there was no doubt rats and mice were in plague proportions in many areas he had visited over the last few weeks.

"The areas getting hit now are what we class as semi-rural; Bannockburn, Inverleigh and down Queenscliff way, near the water," he said. "But in time it will become a problem in the suburbs and inner-city Geelong as well,"

Rain and healthy crops meant conditions were ripe for rats and mice to breed, Mr Toulas said.

"The more food that's around, the more they will breed," Mr Toulas said.

Mice could make their way into homes through cracks as small as five to six millimeters, while large rats needed a gap of just 10 to 12 millimeters, he said. Dianne Yates of Down and Dead Pest Control said unseasonally cool days and rain was driving rats and mice into homes.

"The rain is flushing them out. We've seen a huge spike in the numbers of mice and rats running around people's homes and businesses," she said. "If you were a mouse, where would you rather be, out in the cold or in a nice warm roof cavity?"

Wallington Mitre 10 assistant manager, Jo Russell, said her store on the Bellarine Peninsula was selling plenty of rat poison, and mouse-traps by the dozen. At Bunnings in Corio, however, vermin control products have been slower to move. Bunnings Corio lifestyles co-ordinator Andrew Cromie said staff had been warned to expect a run on Ratsak but, to date, had sold no more than usual.

"They might not have arrived in Corio yet," he said.
