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.
What are Bio-Repellents?
Bio-Repellents are a revolutionary new method of controlling pests that use New Technology Food-Grade ingredients along with old-world active ingredients to repel pests, rather than harming them.
How Do They Work?
PiGNX Bio-Repellent Products utilize Capsaicin (Hot Peppers) as the active ingredient. Capsaicin works by irritating nerve-endings. Imagine the irritation one feels by eating hot chili peppers or by rubbing these peppers on the skin. This is the same effect birds and animals feel when they encounter our Bio-Repellent products.
Our Bio-Repellent products are contact repellents and as such must come in direct contact with the target pest. The products are carried in an amazing Thickened Food-Grade Mineral Oil which is safe enough to eat and will not harm the environment.
Capsaicin has been proven to repel thousands of pests for hundreds of years. The problem has never been with the Capsaicin, the problem has always been the lack of an effective delivery method. PiGNX has finally developed the unique delivery system to make the Capsaicin Effective, Safe, Long-Lasting and Profitable.
How are They Applied?
Bio-Repellent products must be applied in at least a ˝ inch thick bead. Applications differ with the target pest but, with every pest, it is always best to apply a thick bead to ensure the target pest comes in contact with enough product to stick to it. The other reason for this thick application is, with heavy infestations, the product can be carried away on the pest. Please read application instruction for each individual product.

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.
Direction s for Use
Rodent Management Programs - Use DeTour for Rodents to augment any existing rodent management program.
Use as described above to repel rodents and to keep them moving around, which will increase the chance they will
leave the area or be caught. Use as directed to prevent entrance into the structure.
For Commercial Infestations apply DeTour for Rodents after closing, as stressed rodents may become very active
once exposed to the product and they attempt to leave the treated area. Make sure you have also developed a
sound rodent management strategy using traps, glue boards and baits (this may include the program you would
Before application, clean rodent feces from area to be treated.
DETOUR for Rodents must be placed in the direct path of Rodents where contact will occur. Look for areas of Rodent
Activity and place DeTour in the path of the rodents.
Areas such as:
Food storage areas
Underneath or Behind Cabinets
Behind or Underneath Kitchen Equipment
Inside voids/chases in walls, floors or ceilings
Exterior perimeter at any potential entry point and along areas where rodents might travel
Under Grocery Store Gondolas to create a rodent “no-Go Zone”
Place in inaccessible areas to drive rodents out of hiding.
Areas where you see signs of activity include feces, urine trails and rub marks
Around the base of trees
Directly into Rodent Burrows
Use DeTour for Rodents in conjunction with a sound rodent eradication strategy. Apply DeTour for Rodents as
described above to every potential area where rodents will contact the product. Make sure DeTour for Rodents
placements are spaced approximately every 10 feet to ensure rodent contact. Use Approximately ˝ to 1 oz product
every 10 feet.
Use a combination of all the available product delivery systems, including 2 gallon bulk packaging
and DeTour Repel trays.
As the rodents are attempting to leave the structure many will get caught in the traps from your standard rodent
control methods and many will leave the area. Stressed rodents may also start to eat baits they have been avoiding.
Employ rodent management strategy until the rodents are removed.
Special Application: Treat beverage lines and electrical lines with DeTour for Rodents to protect them. You may
apply DeTour for Rodents with a brush or roller.
ePestSolutions also provides a variety of methods of rodent control including rodent bait stations, rat traps, glueboards and rodent control kits.
