Choosing the best product to help with your rodent control problem is not easy. There are so many different products to choose from and you may have questions like these:

  • Do I need a rodent trap or repeller?
  • What is ultrasonic rodent control. What is Ionic rodent control?
  • Do I want to kill the rodents, repel them or get rid of an existing rodent problem?
  • Do I need different products for dealing rodents that are inside the house to those that are outside in my garden or shed?

Here is a quick guide to choosing the best rodent control products which may help you in your different situations.


I have a rodent problem INSIDE my house

Plugin rodent repellers are useful here. They are electronic  and emit high frequency noise that only the rodent can hear.  This will repel them out of your house.

Options here depend on the number of rooms you need to cover, or the size of the area:

Per room:
