Stay Away® FAQs

EarthKind rodent repellent pouches are designed for indoor use and enclosed spaces. The product may still work in outdoor spaces, but will not last as long or be as effective in areas with a high rate of air exchange. If the product gets wet, its effectiveness may diminish.

Although EarthKind rodent repellents have only been tested for efficacy repelling rats and mice, most rodents share a similarly highly developed sense of smell. Many customers have reported success using EarthKind rodent repellents to repel other rodents and pests, but the results have not been tested or proven.

Our current mosquito repellent product is Stay Away® Mosquitoes (lotion spray formula). It is an unscented skin friendly insect repellent that provides long-lasting, 14-hour effective protection from mosquitoes and ticks including mosquitoes that may transmit West Nile Virus, Chikungunya, Dengue and ZIKA and ticks that may transmit Lyme Disease. Repels biting flies, gnats and chiggers for up to 8 hours.

We do not recommend using Stay Away® Mosquitoes on pets. It was designed for use on people not pets.

There are no known safety risks with Stay Away®. All ingredients are on the GRAS list (generally recognized as safe). However, please keep it out of reach of kids and pets to safeguard from any unforeseen risks. Please share this SDS sheet with your vet or physician.

This approach is not recommended as the combination of the different scents will mask each distinctive scent, prohibiting them from working effectively.

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.

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.

We do not recommend it. These products usually have food attractants encased/affixed/attached to attract the pest. Thus counteracting the Stay Away® Repellent benefits.
