Botanical rodent repellent Fresh Cab from Earth-Kind is an EPA-registered repellent designed to be an effective alternative to traditional rodent baits and traps.

Manufacturer press release | November 3, 2009

Botanical rodent repellent Fresh Cab from Earth-Kind is an EPA-registered repellent designed to be an effective alternative to traditional rodent baits and traps. Invented by Earth-Kind CEO, Kari Warberg, a North Dakota mother of two, Fresh Cab was originally designed to be used by farmers in their tractor cabs. Subsequent use and tests from independent labs have proven it is effective in keeping rodents out of other indoor areas as well, the company says. Garages, outbuildings, attics, basements, RVs and hard-to-reach areas like sub-floors and drop ceilings have all been protected from rodent damage with the use of Fresh Cab mouse pouches, according to Earth-Kind.

The company says the Fresh Cab mouse pouch contains an aroma that triggers escape/avoidance behavior in mice. This blend of natural plant fiber and balsam fir oil humanely provides maximum repellency without harm to mice or other animals, according to the company. By keeping mice and rats out in the first place, there is no longer a need to trap or poison rodents and then find and dispose of the decaying carcass, which can sometimes be difficult to locate. Customer satisfaction is guaranteed for up to 100 days, the company says.
