The First Eco-friendly Rat Trap
Rats are well known to spread disease, damage property and contaminate food and animal feed. If they are able to gain entry into your home or business, they can introduce other unwelcome parasites like fleas, lice and ticks.
Introducing Ekomille - an ecological mouse trap system provided by Rentokil Initial:
Ekomille is a revolutionary digital ecological mousetrap system for moderate or severe rodent infestation areas.
According to the data from the Hong Kong government's "Rodent Control Operation" in 2022, new types of mouse traps such as Ekomille (or called "alcohol mouse traps" by Mr. Tse Chin-wan, Secretary for the Environment and Ecology) have increased the efficiency of rodent control by nearly 50 times, significantly improving the rodent control situation in wet markets and other public environments.
Ekomille automatic mousetrap does not use any toxic chemicals. It can repeatedly trap multiple mice after installation, and it will not emit unpleasant smells, keeping the surrounding environment clean and hygienic.
Ekomille is the first patented mouse trap system developed with the concept of ecology and environmental protection. It was developed after 20 years of professional research on the biological habits of mice. It is a pioneer product in the field of ecological rodent pest control methods.
The Ekomille mousetrap is comprehensively targeted at the rodent population, as it contains natural food such as dry food etc. And all its ingredients do not contain poisonous or harmful substances. This distinguishes Ekomille from other approaches of preventing rats.
Inside the trap includes a mini ladder with food bait to lure rodents, while the indicator outside displays the number of mice caught.
When the mouse is attracted by the natural food placed inside and enters the upper layer of the device, the sensor inside the device will be triggered, causing the mouse to automatically fall down into the lower layer of the water tank filled with alcohol and then surpressed quickly. The whole process is fast and humane, which reduces the pain of the mice themselves and minimizes the impact on the environment.
Compared with traditional mouse trapping methods, such as poison bait or mouse glue board, the Ekomille mouse trap does not require frequent monitoring, maintenance, and replacement. The whole device is reusable, and is a more environmentally friendly, safe, hygienic and efficient way of catching mice.
Step1: Questionnaire study for the rodent control pain points and facts
Step 2: Onsite implementation
Step 3: Onsite demonstration
Step 4: Educational Game Booth with Public
Step 5: Educational talk for rodent control
Step 6: Performance survey, vendors revisiting and optimising control methods
Ekomille only needs dry battery to operate for a long time without external power supply or charging, so it is suitable for any indoor and outdoor situations. Only need to add food bait and add approved sanitizing-formula-alcohol to the bottom tank to operate.
Ekomille can trap up to 20 mice in one placement. The number of mice caught is displayed on the outside of the mousetrap. When it is full, Rentokil's experts will come to collect the mice and replace them for disinfection.
In response to media interviews, the government referred to the Ekomille as an "alcohol mousetrap," which is actually the same device. According to the data provided by the government, from July to November 2022, 84 rats have been caught in less than three months, which has achieved remarkable results.
After the actual test of the Hong Kong Rodent Control Operation starting in 2022, the Ekomille ecological mousetrap has performed well and has been reported by the media many times:
