Need to get rid of mice or rats from your house?
Mice and rats, like most pests are on the lookout for food, water, and shelter, especially in the colder months. If you’ve noticed the odd mouse in your home, you might think that it’s just a nuisance, but believe us, they breed fast. So you’re better off acting quickly to deal with the problem before it turns into a more serious infestation.
Should I try DIY pest control?
If you’ve only seen a solitary mouse or rat and there are no signs of infestation like droppings or obvious damage to your property where they’ve chewed on things, the DIY approach might just work.
What DIY pest control product should I use to get rid of mice and rats from my house?
Our recommendation is our Rat & Mouse Killer Ruby Grain. It’s a very effective professional strength rodenticide. In fact, it’s the strongest available poison you can get for domestic use. It’s made from high-quality wholewheat grain and it contains no wax, which makes it more appealing to mice and rats. You can use the grain indoors and outdoors.
What is the active ingredient in Rat & Mouse Killer Ruby Grain?
The active ingredient is difenacoum, which is an anticoagulant rodenticide.
How does difenacoum kill rats and mice?
It thins the blood so internal bleeding occurs. This is not painful for rats and mice. When they have consumed enough of the poison, they will become lethargic and may retreat to their nests where they die.
Is Rat & Mouse Killer Ruby Grain toxic?
Difenacoum can poison non-target animals. The best way to avoid this happening is putting the poison in a bait box. Rat & Mouse Killer Ruby Grain is designed to taste very unpleasant and bitter to pets and children however, so accidental poisoning is very unlikely.
