DeTour for Rodents Receives FIFRA Exemption

Rodent Control Products

The product is a contact irritant that, when contacted by the rodent, causes an intense, negative physiological reaction.

| May 7, 2010

DeTour for Rodents, the new rodent repellent from PiGNX, Inc., has received a FIFRA exemption from the FDA and will be available to the pest management industry in June. 

DeTour for Rodents is a food grade mineral oil that carries a white pepper active ingredient that rodents cannot tolerate. DeTour is a contact irritant that, when contacted by the rodent, causes an intense, negative physiological reaction. Rodents that have come in contact with the DeTour try desperately to get away from the product and will in many cases either exit the structure altogether or become disoriented and run into other rodent equipment, PiGNX reports.

DeTour will not melt or freeze, can be used inside or outside, and works on every kind of rodent, according to the manufacturer.
