Solus Garden & Leisure launch Pest Patrol

Solus, has launched a new range of non-chemical pest control products, called Pest Patrol, for the 2011 season.

The Pest Patrol range features products designed to tackle a wide range of pests, from rats and mice to cockroaches, pigeons and even dogs and cats.  All products are split into three colour-coded categories – red = designed to kill; orange = designed for live catch;  green = designed to deter. 

"Not all problems need to be dealt with by professionals or by spending lots of money. Our Pest Patrol range has been designed to tackle the most common pest complaints", Solus product development manager Dean Winters said.

 "We are pleased to confirm that our range doesn’t use harmful chemicals, meaning that handling and use around the house is less dangerous than chemical based methods, whilst remaining just as effective," Winters added.

Products in the red category, that are designed to kill, include mouse and rat traps of both traditional and automatic designs, a scissor mole trap, fly swatters and sticky traps, ant and cockroach traps including UV insect controls and slug and snail traps.

The orange category, which includes products to "live catch" the pest, includes, squirrel, rabbit and rat cages as well as a humane multi mouse catcher and trap.

The green category offers products designed to deter animals, including an ultrasonic mole repeller, a cat and dog ‘chaser’, owl and falcon decoys, bird scarers, fly screens, indoor pest repellents to deter spiders and other crawling insects, and a personal mosquito repeller. 

A special ‘Keep off the Sofa’ aid is also available to deter pets from jumping on the furniture.
