How Effective are Rodent Smoke Bombs?
Depending on the brand and type utilized, rodent smoke bombs may prove effective repellent or killing methods. Proper care is necessary in handling and administering rodent smoke bombs.
As their name suggests, rodent smoke bombs produce a great deal of smoke. They are not approved for indoor use. The chemicals present in this smoke can prove toxic to humans and house pets.
They have to be placed in identified rodent burrows a minimum of six inches. Once lit, the burrow opening must be closed.
However, despite their effectiveness, rodent smoke bombs do not get rid of rodents long term. Rodent populations tend to return and rebuild within a number of days. Also, smoke bombs must be used according to label directions and are illegal to use in some states. Effective, permanent rodent control requires the services of pest control professionals.
