St Gallen, 06/10/2021. The leaves are falling and the weather outside turns chilly and damp. During this time, however, it's not just people who feel increasingly drawn inside; rodents, such as mice and rats, also seek shelter for the winter. Problem #1: animals are often drawn to people's floor spaces and attics. And once settled there, they can become a real nuisance. With the right measures, it is possible to safely keep mice and other rodents at bay without poison, and to remove them from the property.
Why are mice a problem in the house? As the saying goes, they eat cheese and bacon. Even if they rarely find such delicacies,it is undeniable that they are after the house's pantry. Specifically, they feast on apples, potatoes, cereals, and other foods. In doing so, they can transmit germs and pathogens, and thus pose a serious health hazard. It is also annoying when cables or insulating materials are eaten away. The creatures use this to build a shelter or rummage through the material for something to eat. Problem #2: animals reproduce quickly under these conditions, which are ideal for mice and rats. Therefore, it is important to act preventively or to fight the infestation.
Sealing the house against pest infestation
The best method against mice around the house is to keep the rodents out. More importantly, this also works without harmful chemicals or poison. To do so, it is key to identify the rodents' access paths. As a rule, animals enter through cracks or holes in the masonry. The Rodent-Stop Steel Wool from SWISSINNO is specially designed to block such openings. It consists of a robust stainless steel mesh that rodents cannot penetrate. Thanks to its composition with poly fibre, the steel wool is also resistant to weathering and does not rust. As a result, it can easily be reused the following Autumn. Good to know: the close- knit material also keeps other intruders such as rats, bats, snails, bugs and beetles away.
Driving away mice with ultrasound
For prevention or as an animal-friendly measure after an infestation, there is the Rodent Repeller. The appliance works with ultrasound. This means that two loudspeakers constantly emit interfering tones that are not perceived by the human ear but can be heard by rats and mice. The result: noise-sensitive animals leave the room or the house. Even better – the technology is plug and play: the device is simply connected to a socket on the wall. No power source available? No problem! The Rodent Repeller is also available as a battery-powered version for optimal mobile and self-sufficient use. Furthermore, its operating principle is absolutely harmless to animals and humans, because it works without poison or electric shocks.
Mousetraps against annoying rodents in the house
For larger domestic infestations, the only environmental option is usually to catch animals with traps. However, catching mice, especially humanely, is hardly an easy endeavour. Conventional traps often lead to false triggers and unnecessary suffering. With this in mind, SWISSINNO has developed a patented, easy-catch system. It ensures that killing is carried out quickly and meeting or exceeding animal welfare standards. The PRO SuperCat Mousetrap thus corresponds to welfare category A and is approved for pest control of mice according to Section 18 of the German Infection Protection Act IfSG. Because of its environmental friendliness as a poison-free mouse control, and because of these credentials it was also awarded the Blue Angel.
