Stay Away® Mice works by its aroma. Rodents can enter an enclosed area before they realize that they can’t tolerate the smell. If this area has a baited trap, it’s likely that a rodent will try to consume food on their way back outside. Rodents are built for survival, and will cache (store up) food if they are already full. It’s also likely that a rodent stumbled across the trap on their way in-or-out if the trap was not baited, since they can only see a few inches.

When a rodent enters an area treated with Stay Away® Mice, it’s likely looking for food, water, or a nesting site (a baited trap will attract rodents too). Once in the treated area, rodents will quickly discover they can’t tolerate the smell and exit outside for fresh air to clear their sensitive sensory organ.  Since rodents have no control over their bladder or bowels, they may leave droppings behind as they frantically make their way back out the same way they came in. Professional exterminators use Fresh Cab® to chase rodents into areas where they can be easily trapped. It’s highly unlikely that they will nest (or stay) in an area treated with Stay Away® Mice.
