Why Does RatX Kill Rodents - Rats & Mice - and Not Harm Humans and Other Animals?

Because all rodents have a digestive system that is different from other animals. The way rodents absorb water through their lower gut is quite different to any other animals, including humans and birds. This unique digestive system is a part of what makes a rodent different from other animals.

How Much Does it Take to Kill Them?

Between 40 to 60 grams per rat and 10 to 15 grams per mouse. To encourage consumption, other sources of food should be cleared away.

How Does RatX Work?

It coats the lining of a part of the rodent’s lower gut. This coating of the “fine hairs” in the lower gut, called villi, disrupts the message system to the rodents brain causing it to stop drinking. This leads to dehydration, blood thickening, kidney dysfunction, coma and eventual death.

Why Don't I Always See the Rat or Mouse's Body After Death?

When the rodent ingests the bait they become very lethargic and return to their home (Burrow, Nest or Hole). The rodent then dies in its sleep inside its home. Immediately upon death the accelerated dehydration process starts. This process Mummifies the deceased rodent reducing the decomposition smell up to 90%.

Often found in dark, protected places such as walls and floor cracks, cracks in furniture, behind baseboards, under loose wallpaper, bed bug eggs will usually hatch in one to three weeks, depending on temperature meaning the warmer the weather, the shorter the incubation time. Bed bugs are ready to feed on you immediately upon hatching!

Bed Bug Activity

Bed bugs tend to aggregate together when they are resting. Bed bugs don’t switch back and forth from one host to another so if they find you first, you may be the only one bitten. Bed bugs are most active between 3 and 5 am.
