How Do You Get Rid of Mice Without Using Poison?
Many of the mouse repellent options available for purchase make use of harsh chemicals and poisons to kill the critters. EarthKind’s Stay Away Rodent and Fresh Cab rodent repellents both use a mix of essential oils and other botanical ingredients to create pouches that are lab-proven to be effective at getting rid of mice and keeping them out of the area. Both EarthKind products contain no harmful chemical ingredients.
How Does Stay Away® Rodent Repellent Work?
Stay Away® Rodent pouches are made with a mix of balsam fir oil, fragrance oil, and plant fibers that create a smell that’s offensive to rodents, but not to humans. These pests have poor eyesight and a very strong sense of smell. Rodents hate smells that overwhelm their noses because they use their sense of smell to detect danger. Stay Away® pouches keep the strong scent locked in for 30+ days which causes mice to leave areas where pouches are placed.
Is Stay Away® Botanical Mouse Repellent Safe Around Children and Dogs?
Stay Away® Rodent pouches are safe to use around children and pets when used as directed. The pouches do not contain harmful chemicals. Placing our pouches in a Pouch Pod will further protect them from curious kids and pets.
How much time before I see results with Stay Away® products?
You should begin to notice the results immediately. However, depending on the type of pest and severity of the infestation, it may take up to 48 hours for the full effect to occur.
How do I use Stay Away® Rodent?
For maximum protection, use 1 Stay Away® Rodent pouch for 8 Sqft of floor space in the area to be treated. Infestation does not always include the full SF of an area, so as a way of reducing the number of pouches required, we recommend placing pouches in the areas where activity is seen, and not in the full open area in general (re. at entry points, where food/water sources are accessible, and along walls where shelter and possible nesting areas may exist). Stay Away® Rodent lasts up to 30 days, however, length of effectiveness depends on rate of air exchange, temperature and exposure to moisture. For best results, replace every 30 days or when scent has diminished.
Does the product work on voles, squirrels, chipmunks or other pests?
Stay Away® Rodent has only been tested for efficacy in repelling mice. Although most rodents share a similarly highly developed sense of smell, there is no substantiated proof of efficacy. Many customers have reported success using EarthKind rodent repellents to repel other rodents and pests such as voles, squirrels, or chipmunks, but the results have not been tested or proven.
