What do the instructions mean by “use in non-living areas”?
Rodents tend to infest areas adjacent to the living areas of a home or building. People, and the common living areas they occupy, are often avoided by rodents. We recommend using the pouches in overlooked areas like behind appliances, attics, basements, crawlspaces, closets, garages, etc…
For example, if you are seeing signs of mice in the kitchen, consider placing pouches behind the stove, the fridge, and in storage spaces rather than directly on the kitchen table.
Although scent-based repellents aren’t made with harmful chemicals, some people may find the aroma overwhelming. Instead of placing the pouches where you spend the most time, use them in the places where rodents are likely to live, feed or nest.
