Super Mice controlled with super new poison
Cliff Eccles from from Pestokill Pest Control, reports that the recently launched rodenticide ‘Black Pearl’ has been tested and delivered outstanding results.
There are areas of the UK where mice resistance is evident, which causes frustration to both the pest controllers and Clients. The strange behaviours include aversion to bait stations, avoidance of glue boards and strange feeding habits.
Conventional pest control methods are strained to say the least and the only option seems to be the dreaded sticky glue boards, which the mice are getting wise to.
In all cases we must minimise food sources to encourage feeding on our rodent points, seal entrance points and harbourages to deny mice easy access around the building and check incoming goods and stored items to ensure that they are not nesting in the items. Mice can get access through a hole over 15mm, therefore any holes larger than this must be sealed. As a general rule of thumb if you can fit a biro pen through the hole the mice will get through it.
Black Pearl rodenticide contains alphachloralose, which has been around years however this time they have micro-encapsulated it, resulting in the controls mice very quickly – certainly the fastest of any mouse bait in the UK.
Where mice are resistant to other anticoagulant rodenticides Black pearl provides a solution. They can neither taste nor sense the active ingredient meaning that they quickly consume a lethal dose.
We found that once eaten, the mouse is immobilised almost instantly. The mouse drifts into a coma, followed by death. It can be so quick, they can be found dead right next to the bait station.
What a result!
