Rodent Repellents

Rodents can be a problematic visitor to the home and garden, often causing damage and harbouring disease and bacteria. Mouse and rat deterrents act to make an area inhospitable to rodents causing them to leave the area, without affecting any pets or people. The best solutions are ultrasonic scarers in either mains or battery-powered varieties, working to protect your home without any manual interference required.

We also have a collection of mouse & rat traps. We offer a number of mouse rat trap options, from cages and snap traps to rodent bait and UV tracking dust.

Rodent Repellent FAQS

  • What are mouse and rat deterrents?

    Mouse and rat deterrents act to make an area inhospitable to rodents causing them to leave the area. There are many different kinds of mouse and rat deterrents that are designed to either drive the rodents away or humanely trap them so they can be removed from your garden.

  • What is the best solution to rodent infestations?

    The most effective solution on the market, ultrasonicrat and mouse repellents act by emitting ultrasound waves that rodents use to listen out for predators. These sounds are inaudible to humans but irritating to rodents. Unlikemouse and rat traps, ultrasonic devices function as a permanent solution, making an area unsuitable for rodent colonisation. Here at Primrose, we offer both mains and battery powered repellers, the latter for locations without a power source such as attics, barns, boats, and caravans.

    Primrose stocks clinical solutions to your rodent problem that are best used after you seal any entry points. This is because clinical solutions only make room for new rodents, thus you must create barriers to entry.

    Mousetraps and poisons take time to work as rodents are initially wary of new introductions. The key with these methods is to keep them out of reach of both pets and children. 

    We offer a wide range of pest control solutions at Primrose to help keep your garden free of common outdoor pests.

  • Where is the best place to set mouse traps?

    Mice and rats are naturally cautious, so they’re unlikely to walk into rodent traps if they can easily spot them. If a trap can be sidestepped or they’re out in the open, you’ll struggle to effectively trap the mice and rats infesting your garden.

    The best place to lay mouse traps is around 2 to 10 feet apart around the most active area of infestation and try to keep them concealed. Mice and rats travel in covered areas such as along walls, fences and bushes, so lay your rat traps along popular routes.

  • What is the best mouse trap?

    Unfortunately, there is no guaranteed solution to a rodent infestation. Mice and rats are intelligent creatures that can evade traps if not properly laid. You may have to experiment with a few kinds of traps before you find the right solution for your garden.
  • What is the fastest way to get rid of rats?

    Rat and mouse infestations can be a shock and it’s only natural that you want to get rid of the pests as quickly as possible. Our mouse traps are designed to quickly eliminate infestations. 

    We offer a wide range of mouse and rat traps from poison to snap traps and more. To help understand the path and active areas of the infestation, we recommend usingUV tracking dust in the first instance, then using the mouse trap of your choice in that area.

  • Do ultrasonic pest repellers work on mice and rats?

    Ultrasonic mouse and rat repellents are good for an immediate solution to fixing your rodent problem. Upon hearing the noise, they will immediately vacate the area and look for safety elsewhere.
  • What's the best mouse deterrent?

    The best mouse deterrent can depend on what you’re looking for from your pest control. For immediate relief of pests, ultrasonic would be preferable. However, there are other traps that take longer to work but can be effective long-term, such as traps and rodenticides.
  • What attracts mice and rats in your house?

    Just like other pests, mice and rats come into the house looking for food, water, and shelter. Looking for a warm place to nest is natural for animals, so you may notice that they have paid you an unwanted visit in winter. This can be dangerous as rats can chew through cables, or simply annoying by ruining insulation, wood, or eating food in your kitchen.

    Cluttered areas will attract mice as they nest and burrow to feel safe. Try decluttering and tidying up to reduce the risk of mice and rats invading your home.
