Non Toxic Rat and Mouse Control


Glue Boards are banned for rodent control  in New Zealand

Following increasing concern regarding the humaneness of glue board traps, the New Zealand Government passed legislation that will see the use of glue boards to catch rodents completely prohibited from 1 January 2015.

This presents a conundrum for New Zealand commercial pest operators, who have traditionally used glueboards as an effective and low-cost alternative to anticoagulant rodenticides. Rodenticides, although very effective, are lethal and pose a deadly risk to non-target species such as dogs, birds and other small mammals.

In Europe, where both rodenticides and glue boards are illegal.  Rodents are enticed into the snap trap station with Nara Lures, a non-toxic bait, making them ideal for use in the hospitality and primary industries.

Allergen-management has become a major topic in many food product companies. NARA is the first allergen free attractant, which is especially designed for this specific purpose.

Law as well as many food standards now prohibit the use of anticoagulants for monitoring purposes. Only after the determination of rodent activity anticoagulants may be used subject to stringent restrictions. Common monitoring baits have the critical disadvantage that they serve as food for rodents, which increases their lifetime and the risk of a rising reproduction of rodents. Moreover, most common baits are prone to mould formation in damp areas. In other areas they are often infested by non-target organisms, e.g. flour beetles, cockroaches, bristletails and moths.
