New Mouse Killer Offers Safe Alternative; Toxic Only to Rodents, Innovative Formula Kills Rodents Without Endangering Children or Pets.
Safe-Kill(TM) Mouse Killer is a remarkable new breakthrough that gives families a ready-to-use safe way to kill mice in the home - without harming children, pets or non-rodent wildlife - because it's only toxic to rodents. According to market research, 88 percent of consumers are seeking a rodenticide that can be used around children and pets, and Safe-Kill is the answer.
"The reality is mice are a household problem. Families now have a safer solution to use around their children and pets that matches the speed of kill of a traditional rodenticide," said Kristin Ebert, Senior Product Manager, Spectrum Brands. "Overwhelmingly, consumers seek a product that works, is safe and easy to use ... and Safe-Kill meets that challenge."
Safe-Kill is made from a natural corn oil/corn cob formula that does not harm non-rodent animals or humans. The pellet formulation is only toxic to rodents because they have a unique digestive tract that is regulated by a complex nutrition mechanism. Safe-Kill disrupts that mechanism, leading to coma and death.
Safe-Kill bait packs require no additional preparation - simply identify areas where rodents are present and place packets along the walls in affected areas. Safe-Kill kills within days, and is also effective at killing mice that have grown resistant to the poisons used in conventional rodenticide products. Each bait packet is effective in killing up to 10 mice.
Safe-Kill became available nationally in October 2005 at leading mass retailers, grocery stores, drug stores, and home and garden centers, such as Walgreen's, Kmart, Home Depot, and Wal-Mart.
