PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:      PEST-RID is a food based granular repellent which works by over loading target pests with naturally occurring essential oils. The “larger than normal” concentrate of these oils will “scare” nuisance pests by producing an odor and taste which is disagreeable to a variety of home and garden invaders.

Use Pest Rid for unwanted activity from bats, chipmunks, crayfish, curly tails, deer, ducks, fleas, frogs, iguanas, geese, marmots, mice, newts, rabbits, raccoon, rats, rock chucks, scorpions, skunk, slugs, snails, snakes, squirrels, ticks, toads, voles, woodchucks and other animals.

WHERE TO USE IT:    In the home, Pest Rid can be applied to attics, crawl spaces and other non living spaces. Set out 4 oz of Pest Rid for every 75 sq/ft using a GRANULE GUARD which can either be set on the floor or hung from a supporting beam. Be sure to spray the area with PEST RID SPRAY after applying the granules; the granules will absorb the spray making them 2-3 times a potent. Replace granules monthly to insure the odor is strong and persistent.

In the yard, spread Pest Rid Granules around trees, shrubs, flowers, vegetables, walkways, docks, roof tiles, pool decks, or any other areas where control is desired.


RATE OF APPLICATION:  Spread 1 lb per 250 sq/ft; 4 oz per 75 sq/ft. Treatments with PEST RID SPRAY alone will last around 30 days so for longer control, apply the granules (the product on this page) first and then spray over the top of the granules with the Pest Rid Spray and you will get 60+ days of control.  On a side note, these results are an “average”. In extreme wet conditions, residual duration will be decreased. Conversely, during dry drought conditions, the duration of the residual will be lengthened.

We have two yorkies and a lot of toads. Will this product hurt our dogs?

Haven’t had any toads chirping since applying. It does stink initially but the smell dissipates quickly.

If we put the repellent in one part of the attic, will the snake move to another part? We’re unable to reach or treat the entire attic. Would it be better for us to use a trap?? Thanks!

Works wonders! Have not seen any of those lizards.

It works! I had lots of moles, voles, and boreal toads digging holes around my trees and shrubs, damaging the root system. After using this product, the burrowing pests have moved on. Plus, the product is safe for use around pets.

Frogs! Squirrels! Our neighbor has a abandoned pool which has led to heavy frog activity. This year they started to take over our yard too! Hundreds of them big and small. Bought both the dry pellets and spray and treated the mulch surrounding our back yard. That night the frogs are gone! It’s been two weeks so far still no frogs. We also have squirrels or a really big frog digging up our mulch, with this product they have seemed to stop also. Now the mulch in the front is being dug up, gotta order more! Very pleased with product and results!

While I am terrified of the toads/frogs in my yard, I do love the rabbits, chipmunks, and deer that visit. Will this product deter these animals as well?

My window wells on my house fill up with 1,000s of salamanders. Will this product work to repel them? Can I use it in my window wells and around the outside edge of the window wells?

Really works! It’s been two weeks and I only seen one toad after a heavy night of rain and it did not stay. I have almost 3 acres and used it around my home and walk way. Before using pest rid I had many holes and in my fenced area and toad around my home and walk way. I was worried about my dog getting a hold of one. I was doing salt, coffee grounds, rocks in holes and would of done a toad dance if I thought it would get rid of them. I am so amazed how fast and long Pest Rid has worked. I will be using it again in another week and if it keeps the toads away again and for a longer time, I will order more. Right now this is the only product that has worked.

So far, so good! I was tired of having to clean lizard droppings off my pool deck, as we have fairly large lizards in my backyard. I put down the granules on Saturday around the edge of my pool deck. So far, I have not seen 1 lizard sun bathing on the pavers, which I usually see daily. I am interested to see how long this lasts – as long as it gets them away for a few weeks at least, I will be a happy repeat customer.

Will this product work to deter mourning doves?

It works! It may take several days to begin working but it is working now! No more skinks!

I applied the Pest Rid Granules on top of the mulch around my shrubs and flower beds in the morning and it rained later in the afternoon. Will this rainfall affect the effectiveness of this product?

We have an above ground spa where tiny frogs love to go under the cover. Nothing is worse than having to shew these away (sometimes up to 20 frogs), upon getting in. Or, fetching a dead one out. If I sprinkle the granules around the base of the spa and spray the sides of the spa with the liquid form, will it deter frogs from going under the cover? Thank you, in advance for answering my question.

It works so far… So far I’ve seen real improvement but I think its best to use it the night before you’re going out to the yard. I don’t see it lasting a month or 2. I don’t think the smell is too bad. Cinammon mixed with garlic is what it smells like but its not overwhelming. The toads do try and go to any little crevice I don’t spray or drop granules around. I also don’t think its rainproof, but as long as I can control it to a minimum by using this stuff, I’ll continue to use it. Its better than feeling helpless. I saw and heard improvement next day after use. I had to reapply 1 week later. I’m cool with that.

Easy to use and Effective.

Items arrived on time in good condition. Application was easy. I applied the product on known areas where lizards were chillin’. They avoided the area and started colonizing other areas that I didn’t care if they colonized.

I’m not against wildlife but I got tired of hearing shriek’s of terror and observing jumps of fear on sighting a lizard.

The sprayer was handy but I poured the contents into a pump action sprayer for ease of use.

Have placed some out, have not seen the iguana.

Will the granules and spray affect the taste of vegetables in my garden? Or should I put them outside of the raised beds? Between squirrels and marmots my garden is getting stripped of tomatoes, lima beans, green beans, lettuce and peas!!!
Thank you!
