FAQ

What is a Rat Glue Trap?

A glue trap is a flat piece of cardboard covered in specially designed sticky glue that can be placed flush against floors and walls where rodents travel. Many customers prefer Glue Traps because they present an alternate method of eliminating rodents and other insects without the use of poisons.

 

Where can Rat Glue Traps be used?

Glue traps can be used in food plants, kitchens, restaurants, food processing plants, hospitals, residences, zoos and other sensitive areas where the use of poison is prohibited or discouraged.

 

How do glue traps work?

Glue traps are easy to use. Simply place the traps where the floor meets the wall in areas where rodents travel (as indicated by rodent signs like hair, droppings, or damage). Glue traps have a low profile so the rodent will not become suspicious when it happens upon the trap-it will continue to walk across it as if it were an extension of the floor. As soon as the rodent comes in contact with the glue, it becomes entangled and unable to free itself. The rodent will eventually suffocate to death.

 

What are the Benefits of using Rat Glue Traps?

  • Glue Traps do not use any toxic baits
  • Glue Traps are simple and easy to use..
  • Glue traps are inexpensive.
  • Rodents die on the Glue trap, rather than wondering off and dying in an unknown location where they can cause odors and safety hazards.

 

Are there any drawbacks to using Rat Glue Traps?

When you check the traps you have placed after a few days, there is always the chance that a trapped mouse or rat will be in the process of dying, and not yet dead, which may be unpleasant for some people. Rats are more likely to escape glue boards than mice, especially if they do not get all 4 feet on the trap.

 

What if the glue gets stuck to human skin?

If a pet or person happens to come in contact with the glue from the Glue Trap, it can easily be loosened and removed with vegetable or mineral oil.

 

What should I do when I find a dead rodent on the Glue Trap?

Rat Glue Traps should be checked daily for dead rodents. When disposing of dead rodent carcasses, always wear rubber gloves to prevent any chance of disease, and place the carcass in a plastic bag for disposal.

 

Is the Protecta Patch really non-toxic?

The Protecta Patch utilizes active ingredients that are approved and considered safe.  Safety for children – the hardest-hit segment by malaria and other mosquito-borne diseases – has been at the center of our product development efforts.

 

Can I use the Protecta Patch on my children?

Yes.  That has been a primary development priority – both in safety and application.  It works just like a sticker.  Parents can place a Protecta Patch around infants and babies (on their crib, on their clothing or carrier, or stroller, for example), as long as there is no risk of the child eating the sticker itself.  That would obviously not be safe.

 

Benefits of using protecta mosquito patch.

  • No problem on skin contact
  • Last up to 24 hours
  • Easy to carry wherever you go
  • 100% Natural, Safe & Toxic Free
  • No refills, no batteries, no electricity required.

 

Is Protecta Patch harmful or damaging to clothing?

No its not, it will have the same impact that a sticker would have.

 

Isn’t it designed to go on skin?

Protecta Patch is designed for clothing, not skin. Our technology is designed to be placed on clothing, baby carriers, backpacks, Camelbacks and other outdoor gear. Protecta Patch is NOT a skin patch.

 

Does Protecta Patch work on all types of mosquitoes in different parts of the world?

Given that all mosquitoes track humans through carbon dioxide in breath, we anticipate Protecta Patch to work on all types of mosquitoes. Preliminary field trials indicate that this technology is effective on several different species of mosquito.

 

Does Protecta Patch provide 100% protection against mosquito bites?

Protecta Patch provides us protection for up to 24 hours, but it does not guarantee mosquitoes will not bite us. It is being designed to be a replacement for spray-on, fan-powered, or lotion applications, but does not take the place of bed nets at night and/or appropriate clothing in mosquito-impacted areas.

 

Do you believe this will have a significant impact on malaria?

Yes, we believe so.  By reducing the contact between mosquitoes and humans, Protecta Patch will definitely impact malaria transmission rates.
