If you are struggling with a rat or mouse infestation in your home or business, you know just how difficult it can be to take down these rodent invaders. Small, smart, and incredibly resilient, rodent pests such as rats and mice are notorious for defying traditional pest control treatments. That’s where Eco Clear’s RatX® product line come in. RatX® is a specially-formulated rodent food mix that, once ingested, gradually and humanely kills rats and mice. Unlike other rodent traps and poisons — which rats and mice often actively avoid — RatX® uses a special blend of natural vegetable and cereal grains to attract foraging rodents. Manufactured in the USA from our eco-friendly engineers at EcoClear Products, RatX® is the right choice for rat and mouse problems of any magnitude.

RatX® Pellets: The Humane & Highly-Effective Rodent Extermination Solution
RatX® has a number of advantages that make it an excellent choice for efficient, effective, and environmentally-friendly rodent extermination. Aside from its overall efficacy and humane rodent-killing process, RatX® pellets are also completely non-toxic and 100% safe for people, pets, livestock and wildlife. RatX® is even safe to birds of prey with no risk of secondary kill. (Note that since RatX® is designed to work only on the digestive systems of rats and mice, it is ineffective at exterminating other rodents, including squirrels, gophers and voles. However, RatX® will kill domestic rats and mice and should not be used anywhere near pet gerbils.) Pest control professionals and property owners alike will be pleased to know that RatX® has a 25b Classification, meaning that it has no special requirements for transport, handling, storage, or disposal.
How Do RatX® Pellets Work?
The secret to RatX® pellet’s effectiveness is their special formula, which both attracts rodents and exterminates them humanely with all-natural, biodegradable ingredients. Once RatX® pellets are ingested by a rat (or mouse), they coat the lining of the stomach, thereby blocking all messages to the brain telling the rodent to drink water. Once this occurs, dehydration sets in and eventually leads to circulatory failure. Within a few days, the rodent will have died with virtually no pain. (For the rodent, the physical experience of ingesting and absorbing RatX® will more closely resemble sleep.) Active ingredients in RatX® also facilitate a mummification process of mouse and rat bodies, reducing odor by as much as 90%.
How to Use RatX® Pellets
Using RatX® to exterminate rats and/or mice on a property is quite simple. This is due in large part to the fact that RatX®, unlike other rodent traps and poisons, actually attracts rodents with its formula. Here’s how to use it:
Step 1: Ensure that all other potential food sources are removed from the area you are treating.
Step 2: Portion the proper amount of RatX® into small cling wrap bags. (You can also use pre-portioned RatX Ready Trays™ to skip the measuring.) 40-60 grams or 1-1/2 to 2 ounces are needed for Rats; 10-15 grams or 1/3 to 1/2 ounces are needed for Mice.
Step 3: Place bait trays or use pre-packaged RatX Ready Trays™ in areas where you have observed rodent activity. For maximum effectiveness, place RatX® near holes and runs. If you don’t have bait trays or the Ready Trays, you can fill cling wrap bags with the RatX® Pellets.
Step 4: Keep pellets dry (wetness reduces effectiveness) and continue to bait until rat and/or mouse activity ceases. Don’t underestimate the amount of rodents on your property. Continue to refill until pellets are no longer eaten. An indicator of consumption will be fecal droppings bleached in color and up to 3 times larger than normal rat or mouse droppings.
