DeTour For Rodents is the first Fifra EPA 25b exempt contact bio-repellent for rodents that acts as a contact irritant. Once rats and mice come into contact with DeTour, they will do everything they can to exit the structure. The bio-repellent irritates them but does not harm them. When used strategically, DeTour for Rodents can literally create a barrier around structures, barns, feed lots or other sensitive areas where nuisance rodents need to be kept away. DeTour can be used in interior and exterior rodent management programs, for cleanouts, maintenance and preventative programs.

How Does DeTour For Rodents Work?

Detour Rodent Repellent carries white pepper as its active ingredient. Its mode of action against rodents is irritation of the white pepper-sensitive primary afferent fibers in the nerve-endings of the ureter. DeTour will not harm the rodents. It simply irritates the nerve-endings and gives the rodent a negative experience that causes them to look for the exits. If used on the exterior around rodent entry point rodents will be discouraged from ever entering.

How is DeTour For Rodents Applied?

Detour rodent repellent can be brushed on or applied in a thick one-half inch bead. The thicker it is applied the longer and more effective the product will last on the surface to which it is applied. Rodents need to pick up the product on their feet and carry it with them – they will track the gel and white pepper along the path they travel and back to their den exposing the other rats to the white pepper and driving them out of the areas they are inhabiting.

Interior – Apply DeTour to any areas where rodent droppings are found or where rodents are currently active. Rubs, runways, food sources, pipe chases, wall voids, holes, ceilings or any areas where rodents may come in contact with the product.
DeTour Repel-Trays are pre-packaged trays of product that may be placed anywhere rodents are active. Simply place them where rodents will contact the trays.

DeTour may be applied in current rodent equipment like bait-stations or rodent boxes. Keep it covered in areas where humans may come in contact. DeTour may be applied directly to floor areas, wall voids, etc if there is no potential for human contact. DeTour may be placed on devices like 16 oz soda lids or waxed cardboard cutouts for temporary applications when the product will need to be removed at some point or for cleanout situations. DeTour is great in areas where regular service is difficult, ie. under grocery store gondolas, shelves, racks and other inaccessible locations. A bead of DeTour under these racks with create a rodent No-Go zone. If there are active rodent infestations under gondolas DeTour may be used to force the rodents away from the middle of the store.

Exterior –Use DeTour as a barrier placed in contact with the structure. Use a bead of DeTour to prevent rodent entry at any potential rodent entry point. A bead of detour around the entire perimeter where the siding meets the foundation and around any potential entry points will prevent rodents from entering the structure at these points.

Can I use Traps and Trapping Equipment at the same time?

Field trials indicate that DeTour enhances trapping strategies! The stress response to DeTour causes confusion and subsequently changes the rodent’s neo-phobic responses allowing them to be caught in traps more easily. In many cases it might make sense to actually add more rodent trapping equipment.

How long with DeTour last?

DeTour is very durable and will last indefinitely in undisturbed areas such as wall voids or under shelves in dry areas. Under heavy rodent infestations, animals will carry the product away and reapplication may be required.
Areas of heavy cleaning will require additional monitoring to insure the product has not been washed away.

Can I use DeTour for Rodent Monitoring purposes?

DeTour is formulated as a gel. Any time a rodent comes in contact with the product they will leave marks in the product thus making it an excellent monitoring tool.
