Rodents – most commonly mice and rats – are some of the most problematic pests. These creatures live wherever humans live, especially in urban areas. Mice and rats have acute hearing, are sensitive to ultrasound, and hold a highly developed sense of smell. Bird-X rodent control products are designed to attack these very senses, which are scientifically proven effective in keeping mice and rats away from treated areas.
Health risks associated with rodents
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention1: Worldwide, rats and mice spread over 35 diseases. These diseases can be spread to humans directly, through handling of rodents, contact with rodent feces, urine, or saliva, or through rodent bites. Diseases carried by rodents can also be spread to humans indirectly through ticks, mites or fleas that have fed on an infected rodent.
A few of the diseases rodents are known to carry and transmit to humans include:
Lyme Disease, Salmonellosis, Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome, Human Granulocytic Anaplasmosis, Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis (LCM), Rickettsialpox
How to get rid of mice, rats, squirrels, and more
Because rodents are sensitive to ultrasound and often communicate using high-frequency transmissions, Bird-X ultrasonic products are an excellent way to repel mice and rats off your property. Both the Transonic PRO and the Transonic Bugchaser are effective indoor solutions. In the case where rodents are taking over small outdoor spaces (backyards, patios, gardens, etc.) the Yard Gard or Solar Yard Gard devices are recommended.
