Rodents cause a lot of damage, annoyance, and can pose health risks if a rat or mice infestation becomes out of control. Rodent repellents can aid you when you are tackling an infestation. Just like when you use a repellent to ward off deer from your prized plants, or a squirrel repellent to protect your tomatoes, a rodent repellent can keep rodents out of certain areas and change certain behaviors. We carry a variety of different types of rodent repellents (and many other types of rodent control products) with varying active ingredients and formulations to suit your needs.
How Rodent Repellents Work
Repellents contain certain substances that irritate, but not harm, the target animal, causing them to leave the treated area. Often, the active ingredients will irritate nasal passages or mucous membranes. The main purpose for using repellents, in almost all instances for any nuisance animal, is to modify behaviors and act as a deterrent. You will find products recommended for both mice and rats.
Using Rodent Repellents
Repellents are perfect for getting mice, rats, and other rodents to avoid certain areas and to keep them away from certain items, like garbage areas, trees, poles, fences, shrubs, roofs, etc., to minimize possible damage. The main goal for using a repellent, for any nuisance animal, is to modify unwanted behavior. While a rodent repellent cannot completely control an infestation, repellents can aid you by keeping the rodents out of specific areas, funneling them into areas you have either placed traps or baits. Here are some tips on using rodent repellents:
