THE SAFE - HUMANE WAY TO KEEP RODENTS AWAY
The use of a strobe light to drive raccoons out of barns and attics has been in use since the 1960s. The old technology strobe lights were very large and required a hard wired power source, and used a lot of power. As mice and other small rodents are mammals, a constant strobe light disrupts their sleep patterns and circadian rhythm. The strobe light basically drive them crazy so they leave and do not return.
Strobe-Away™ light strips can be used in the small spaces such as cabinets and slipped into crevices and cracks that are the entry point for mice. Simply peel off the adhesive backing and stick the light strip to the side or top of the cabinet or side of the crevice.
The button should be pushed to the first strobe or “fast strobe” mode. In a very small space such as a drawer or crevice a single light strip may be all you need. For a larger space such as a typical kitchen cabinet two or three should be used. If two are used one should be in fast strobe mode and the second one in slow strobe mode. The steady on position should only be used for observation and inspection in tight areas.
Strobe-Away light strips will last for up to 200 hours, but you should see the rodents driven away in 48 hours. The Strobe-Away™ light strips can be turned off and reused, simply peel them off and re-apply the backing.
