What Does Rat Grease™ Do?

Rat Grease™ multiplies the effectiveness of rodent population control measures by making rodents easier to bait and trap.

What is Rat Grease?

RAT GREASE™ is a simple mineral oil-based gel and contact irritant that makes rats and other rodents easier to bait and trap. Contact with Rat Grease™ causes an intense burning sensation to eyes, mouth, skin, and genitalia. Rat Grease™ is clear in color, odorless, and tasteless. It is not a poison, and not a rodenticide.

Rat Grease™ is intended to be used in combination with existing population control methods: baits, snap traps, glue boards, etc. Used by itself Rat Grease™ will not prevent, destroy, repel, or mitigate rodent populations, and does not affect rodent food sources or habitats. Rat Grease™ will not attract rodents.

Note: On humans the burning sensation is similar to contact with the juice of a jalapeno pepper, starts to subside within 20 minutes, and is completely gone in about one hour. The effect on rats is more intense and long-lasting, but has never been measured.

How Does Rat Grease™ Work?

Apply to areas and surfaces where rodents are likely to brush against or walk into the gel. Physical contact delivers an intense burning sensation to the mouth, skin, eyes, and reproductive organs. While suffering from the intense burning sensation, rodents and small animals are pre-occupied with finding pain relief in addition to water and food. Pre-occupation with pain relief causes rodents to move about less carefully than normal. Pre-occupation with pain-relief makes rodents less careful (less neophobic, less trap-shy) and, … easier to bait and trap.

RAT GREASE™ is not a glue: it will not snare, catch or entangle small animals. After the intense burning sensation on the rodents' mouth, skin, eyes, and reproductive organs wears off, they return unharmed to their normal behavioral patterns.

Population control jobs will finish sooner, decreasing the chance that non-targeted wildlife to be harmed by baits and traps.
