| April 15, 2011

CARSON, Calif. — Rat-Out Gel deters rodents and can be used to exclude, block passage or to corral animals into a specific zone. Rat-Out Gel is non-toxic, all food grade ingredients, and qualifies for an exemption from EPA registration under FIFRB 25(b). It can be used as part of a green program and has few limitations for appropriate use, the manufacturer reports.

Rat-Out Gel is a proprietary blend of garlic oil (for smell), and white pepper (for physical irritation.) In-field trials have proven that rodents generally avoid the gel without touching it, according to the manufacturer. However, in more aggressive infestations where it is touched, the pests are treated to an uncomfortable warming sensation. Rat-Out Gel provides immediate, temporary exclusion — at some point, permanent exclusion should be installed or Rat-Out Gel reapplied. Trials have also shown that a very small amount (just a dab) has been highly effective in stopping activity on sprinkler pipes, in unsealed openings and building penetration points, the manufacturer reports. Rat-Out Gel can be used to encircle sensitive products and girdling trees to prevent rodent access.
 
Rat-Out is supplied in 10 ounce caulking tubes that fit into standard caulking guns and are sold by the case of 10. Rat-Out is marketed by Pest Barrier, a DBA of Bird Barrier. Bird Barrier President Cameron Riddell said, “It seemed like a no-brainer to us, we are perfectly poised to bring this great product to the industry.”
