  • Using the convenient dispenser cap on this package, lightly sprinkle a band 2 feet wide, next to and around the area you wish to protect. It is not necessary to completely cover the ground with the product.
  • One pound will treat a band 2 feet wide by 100 ft in length. If after 2 weeks no rodents have been observed, a broadcast/maintenance application may be made at the rate of 1 lb. per 200 sq. ft. Do not water in after application.
  • Reapply product after heavy rains or every two weeks to obtain best results.
  • For chipmunks, liberally sprinkle granules directly into and around as many holes and harborages as you can find to drive burrowing rodents from the property.

NOTE: Effective rodent control begins with good cultural practices such as exclusion, and sanitation. To keep rodents out of structures and premises, be sure all points of entry are sealed, including attics and basements. Also be sure all sources of food are secured, including animal feed, bird food, pet food and table refuse. Severe infestations should be cleaned out prior to using this product. Revenge Rat Traps may be helpful in this regard. Do not apply to furniture, painted surfaces or fine finishes without testing on a small inconspicuous area first. Do not apply to edible crops.

    Rats are not repelled

    By Karen on 05/07/2020

    Purchased two containers of this product. Placed as directed along perimeter of neighbors fence (where they were developing) and along my own fence line. Next morning, sitting outside enjoying coffee, rat comes through the fence, ran along the fence line right through the two foot wide strip of product, not even phased by the smell or whatever else is in the product. Would not recommend this at all. I plan to purchase commercial grade poison found at home improvement store to deal with this issue.

Can I use Rat Magic under the car hood?

Rats are living on motor and chewing up insulation and possibly wires


 Rat Magic is a granule repellent that could be spread easily around the area (do not use indoors such as in a garage) to help deter rodents.

To protect individual vehicles you may want to consider using T-Rex snap traps beneath the vehicle and resting on the vehicle tires overnight. Tamper-resistant rodent bait stations loaded with bait such as Fastrac Blox will help reduce the level of mice and rats if there are more on the property to a more manageable level. These products can be purchased together in our Rodent Kits: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/rodent-kits-c-21_405.html.

How long will the Rat Magic Rodent Repellent effect last when applied in the attic?

Rat Magic Rodent Repellent is for outside use only and should not be applied in the attic.  A better option inside would be Nature's Defense Mouse & Rat Repellent Packets which can last up to 30 days
