Did you know that in six months 2 mice can lead to 300?

Rats and mice are very active in winter looking for suitable places to stay while foraging for food.  With winter now creeping closer, there is a decline in food availability and our homes provide an alternative pantry to these pesky rodents.

Mice and rats are known for creating dreadful damage and exposing people to bacteria or disease. They consume the equivalent of 10 % of their body mass daily and pollute our food and the environment with hair, urine and stools.  They are also carriers of a host of communicable bacterial and viral diseases that can be transmitted to people, including deadly diseases such as salmonella, black fever and bubonic plague, to name but a few.  In poor under-resourced areas terrible human suffering can result from rodent infestations where rats feed on the lips as well as finger and toe tips of infants.  In addition to the health risks they pose, they are a major source of destruction, especially when they seek shelter in our homes and vehicles.

It’s critical to maintain control of any mice or rat problems and to exclude them from your property entirely.  To get rid of an infestation, one has to start outside by removing discarded food from refuse bags as well as debris where mice and rats can hide and nest, like piles of leaves, wood piles or any other debris laying around the yard.

Rodenticide baits are the most effective way to get rid of even the toughest rodent infestations. 

Protek’s Kill Alland Rodex rodenticides are single feed baits containing an anti-coagulant.    Anti-coagulants prevent blood clotting and thins the blood of target animals.  Because of its acute toxicity, a lethal dose can be obtained in a single feeding, although death is delayed for 4 to 5 days.  It is sometimes necessary to put out bait three to four times to get rid of large infestations. 

Kill All Pellets is a pelleted rodenticide packed in 50 g and 500 g containers and controls Norway rats, roof rats and house mice in a single feed.  The ready to use pellets are convenient and easy to apply.

Kill All Wax Blocks is a grain based rodenticide packed as wax blocks in 85 g and 500 g containers.  The ready to use and easy to apply wax blocks control Norway rats, roof rats and house mice in a single feed.

Kill All Liquid is a very toxic liquid rodenticide bottled in a 200 ml quantities which has a nifty measuring “magafter” to ensure easy measuring and application.  The single feed rodenticide eradicates Norway rats, roof rats and house mice and should be applied where food is plentiful. 

Rodex Rat & Mouse Grain is a single feed grain rodenticide packed in 100 g and 500 g containers and controls Norway rats, roof rats, house mice and gerbilles.  The convenient ready to use grain is easy to apply and great value for money.

Rodex Rat & Mouse Paste Bait comes in 12 x 15 g (195 g) paste sachets.  This single feed palatable bait controls Norway rats, roof rats, house mice and gerbilles and is easy and convenient to apply.

Handy tips:

  • keep rodenticides under lock and key where children and uninformed persons cannot access them.
  • Never handle rodenticides with your bare hands.
  • Remove dog food as it contains Vit K1, an anti-dote for anti-coagulants.
  • Use liquid bait where food is readily available and pellets, grain, paste or wax blocks where there is a food shortage.
  • Get rid of carcasses.
  • For safe application of rodenticides, always use a bait station.
