Detour For Rodents And Insects

This product requires a caulking gun to dispense the product. We also sell DeTour Roadblock boxes, which already contain DeTour rodent repellent. 

DeTour For Rodents And Insects, previously known as DeTour For Rodents Bio-repellent is the first Fifra EPA 25b exempt contact bio-repellent for rodents that acts as a contact irritant. Once rats and mice come into contact with DeTour, they will do everything they can to exit the structure. The bio-repellent irritates them but does not harm them. When used strategically, DeTour for Rodents can literally create a barrier around structures, barns, feed lots or other sensitive areas where nuisance rodents need to be kept away.  DeTour can be used in interior and exterior rodent management programs, for cleanouts, maintenance and preventative programs.

DeTour For Rodents And Insects is a triple threat with three modes of action. It seals holes, cracks and crevices, removing rodents and insect harborages. Detour for Rodents and Insects uses natural chilis and food grade gels. These are the same natural chilis the hot sauce industry uses to add the heat in their hot sauces. It is made in the USA and they follow the NSF protocol for food safety. This product creates a barrier sealant that repels rodents and insects, allowing a barrier so that they will not cross over due to the hot chili pepper oil. DeTour for Rodents and Insects contains Capsaicin (Chilis) food grade gels and is NSF Certified approved for use in kitchens, restaurants, food distribution facilities and food processing plants. When rodents come in contact with the Detour by stepping into the gel, it stays on their feet, and they will carry it back to their nesting sites and infect the other rodents. This forces them from their living and hiding areas and will leave the structure entirely.

Application warning: Make sure DeTour is never placed in areas where humans may accidentally come in contact with the product. The active ingredient, White Pepper, may cause a reddening of the skin or eye irritation. Applicators should wear latex gloves when applying DeTour. Any product that contacts the skin should be removed by immediately washing the affected area with soap and water or through the use of baby wipes or other alcohol-based wipes.


How Does DeTour For Rodents Work?

Detour Rodent Repellent carries white pepper as its active ingredient. Its mode of action against rodents is irritation of the white pepper-sensitive primary afferent fibers in the nerve-endings of the ureter.  DeTour will not harm the rodents. It simply irritates the nerve-endings and gives the rodent a negative experience that causes them to look for the exits. If used on the exterior around rodent entry point rodents will be discouraged from ever entering.


How is DeTour For Rodents Applied?

Detour rodent repellent can be brushed on or applied in a thick one-half inch bead. The thicker it is applied the longer and more effective the product will last on the surface to which it is applied. Rodents need to pick up the product on their feet and carry it with them - they will track the gel and white pepper along the path they travel and back to their den exposing the other rats to the white pepper and driving them out of the areas they are inhabiting.

Interior – Apply DeTour to any areas where rodent droppings are found or where rodents are currently active. Rubs, runways, food sources, pipe chases, wall voids, holes, ceilings or any areas where rodents may come in contact with the product.
DeTour Repel-Trays are pre-packaged trays of product that may be placed anywhere rodents are active. Simply place them where rodents will contact the trays.

DeTour may be applied in current rodent equipment like bait-stations or rodent boxes. Keep it covered in areas where humans may come in contact. DeTour may be applied directly to floor areas, wall voids, etc if there is no potential for human contact. DeTour may be placed on devices like 16 oz soda lids or waxed cardboard cutouts for temporary applications when the product will need to be removed at some point or for cleanout situations. DeTour is great in areas where regular service is difficult, ie. under grocery store gondolas, shelves, racks and other inaccessible locations. A bead of DeTour under these racks with create a rodent No-Go zone. If there are active rodent infestations under gondolas DeTour may be used to force the rodents away from the middle of the store.

Exterior –Use DeTour as a barrier placed in contact with the structure. Use a bead of DeTour to prevent rodent entry at any potential rodent entry point. A bead of detour around the entire perimeter where the siding meets the foundation and around any potential entry points will prevent rodents from entering the structure at these points.

Can I use Traps and Trapping Equipment at the same time?

Field trials indicate that DeTour enhances trapping strategies! The stress response to DeTour causes confusion and subsequently changes the rodent’s neo-phobic responses allowing them to be caught in traps more easily. In many cases it might make sense to actually add more rodent trapping equipment.

How long with DeTour last?

DeTour is very durable and will last indefinitely in undisturbed areas such as wall voids or under shelves in dry areas. Under heavy rodent infestations, animals will carry the product away and reapplication may be required.
Areas of heavy cleaning will require additional monitoring to insure the product has not been washed away.

Can I use DeTour for Rodent Monitoring purposes?

DeTour is formulated as a gel. Any time a rodent comes in contact with the product they will leave marks in the product thus making it an excellent monitoring tool.

    5 of 5 stars  Amazing Product if you know how to use!
    By Christian in Alexandria, Virginia on 12/27/2014

    I'm a pest control operator and have used Detour on squirrels and has worked every time. Basically it has to be applied correctly if it's on a non porous surface you must use some type of barrier. Simply wrap a duct tape around the branch where the squirrel is climbing and apply a bead of Detour Gel around the duct tape and spread with a putty knife. On a brick wall apply silicone gel and spread to create a barrier and apply Detour Gel on top and spread with putty knife.

    5 of 5 stars  So far so good against squirrels
    By Collin in Lake County, FL on 02/21/2013
    Verified Purchase

    After having blocked off re-entry via a one way trap and placing wire mesh all around the immediate area, we placed DeTour on other close by potential entry places. They can't enter their old way and it must be awfully bothersome to create a new entry. The squirrels are not happy, and they are NOT inside anymore, either.

    Used this product to try to keep ground squirrels off my 8 fruit trees. Placed a thick coating on limbs which squirrels needed to climb to reach fruit. Did not deter squirrels at all. They appeared to walk right through the product and feast on the apricots and peaches. No pies this year!

    5 of 5 stars  Detour works great on Squirrels
    By Kelly in Portland, OR on 04/15/2016

    we were desperate looking for solutions to get rid of the squirrels in our backyard and a friend recommended we use this product. it was really simple to use . We just followed the utube video placing some food on a piece of linoleum tile (we used sunflower seeds in a tray and placed it in the middle of the linoleum tile and spread the detour around the tray and used a sponge brush to spread the detour and when the squirrels came to get the sunflower seeds they go the Detour on them and they never came back. thanks for such a wonderful product

    I used a piece of Linoleum tile and placed a small tray with Sunflower seeds in the middle. I applied the Detour around the tray on the Linoleum tile . I watched the Squirrel walk onto the tile and grab the sunflower seeds and sit down on the Detour . The Squirrel immediately left and have not seen the little critter .

QIs DeTour safe around dogs & cats?

ADeTour is a bio repellent and contains an ingredient that irritates rodents and makes them exit the building or home, but does not harm them.  If your pet got into this product, it would not harm them, but it would also irritate them just like the rodents.  You should only place this product where your pets cannot access it, but rodents can.  Places such as behind appliances, in wall voids, entry points (small holes) where rodents enter, etc.

QHow long does an application of DeTour For Rodents Bio-Repellent last?
Does application need continuous line or can it b intermittent in order to create a barrier? Indoor and Outdoor?

AWhen DeTour For Rodents Bio-Repellent is applied according to the product label, rodents will be repelled for at least 30 days or longer if the product is left intact and undisturbed. Reapplications will be required on an as needed basis in areas with a large rodent infestation or where the product has been disturbed or removed by rodent contact. This means that you should check application areas every few weeks to make sure it is still on the surface. Do not to apply DeTour For Rodents Bio-Repellent directly to porous surfaces as it can be absorbed by the surface which can lower the overall efficacy of the product. DeTour can be applied indoors and outdoors directly around areas where rodent activity has been noticed and any area where rodents can gain access to a structure (doorways, windows, vents, utility lines). You can see the full DeTour instructions by reading the product label.

QWhat if this product is used and the repellent is spread on top of food table or around then?
If accidental ingestion of product occurs what will happen? If human touch it and spread by rubbing eyes? What if it touches food?

A

According the DeTour For Rodents Bio-Repellent MSDS Sheet, the following First Aid procedures should be followed:

Eyes: Immediately flush the eyes with water for 15 minutes until Material is removed from eyes. Seek medical attention if irritation persists.

Skin: If clothing is contaminated, remove and launder before reuse. Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water. Get medical attention if irritation occurs.
Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If breathing is labored, administer oxygen.
Ingestion:Do not induce vomiting. Drink plenty of water. Seek medical attention if necessary.
Below are the application instructions for kitchen/bathroom areas to reduce the risk of contamination. You may read the full Application Instruction Guide for detailed instructions on placements, guides and tips on how to apply the DeTour For Rodents Bio-Repellent.
Kitchens/Laundry Rooms
1. Use DeTour under refrigerators. It may require a flat tray or some other device that
will allow DeTour to be applied and slid underneath. You can also attach an extension
tube to the gun in order to apply the product further toward the back, where it is inaccessible.
2. Apply DeTour under sinks and cabinets. Due to the heavy use of kitchen/laundry
cupboards it would be best to keep the DeTour covered or use the Roadblocks.
3. DeTour should not be placed directly on the floor. If the area is inaccessible DeTour may be placed on a removable substrate such as sheet metal, duct tape or visquene.
4. In heavy infestations apply more DeTour in/on trays that can be removed once the
rodents are eliminated, provided there are not children/pets in the home.

QWill Detour For Rodents And Insects work on a fence?

A Detour For Rodents And Insects will work if applied to the fence post.  DeTour is very durable and will last indefinitely in undisturbed areas such as wall voids or under shelves in dry areas. In High traffic areas reapplication is needed.
