Carbon monoxide is one of the most potent yet safe poisons for killing burrowing rodents. Until now, there has been no inexpensive, efficient delivery system.
The PERC is an elegant solution:An internal combustion engine is used to both generate carbon monoxide and pressurize it to 125 PSI. Using multiple probes, burrows are easily detected and instantly filled with a lethal concentration of carbon monoxide before a rodent has a chance to react or escape.
Points of Interest
While baits, traps, shooting, blowing up burrows, and conventional low-pressure auto exhaust delivery systems all work, nothing is as effective, efficient and inexpensive as the PERC system. A PERC system can treat moderately infested alfalfa fields at about 3.5 acres per hour with a single operator.
Extensive field experience by growers has demonstrated a kill rate in excess of 90% over a season's use, with reductions of rodent populations by 66% to 75% in a single treatment.
Gophers or ground squirrels can cause production losses of 20-50 percent in pastures and alfalfa. Equipment breakdowns and dirt contaminated hay cause huge economic losses to the farmer. Trees and vines girdled and killed by gophers can destroy the economic viability of an orchard or vineyard. The PERC (Pressurized Exhaust Rodent Controller) is a new, environmentally friendly, cost effective system for significantly reducing burrowing rodent populations on large acreage farms. Residential homeowners as well as landscape professionals will appreciate the noninvasive control PERC provides.
