ANSWERS to FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q.Why should I choose the Rat Blocker instead of some other kind of pest control or treatment?
A.The Rat Blocker is the effective solution to deal with the nasty and potentially dangerous and disease-carrying rats before they enter your home or workplace — we say "Prevention is the Cure" for a reason!

Stopping these vermin from joining you in your home, office, or other property can not only help you, your family, friends, coworkers, and employees stay safe and healthy, but can also free you from the hazards of traps, poisons, and worry and burden of constant vigilance. The Rat Blocker can also save you the money you'd spend on those recurring pest-control purchases that are designed to work only after the pests have gotten inside.

Additionally, since there are no chemicals involved, you'll be keeping your water system and environment safe and clean, too!
Q.Rats are smart — can't they use their crafty little paws to open the flap?
A.Rats are indeed smart; but our engineers are much smarter! They designed the The Rat Blocker with a rat-proof double-steel locking flap that thwarts any attempt to lift the flap from the outside. Any tug on the flap, and it locks into place, preventing rats (or any other critters) from entering. You can see this demonstrated in this video at the 48 second mark.
Q.How long will my Rat Blocker last?
A.The Rat Blocker is made of marine-grade stainless steel to withstand the harshest of elements and was rigorously tested by the Danish Technological Institute under realistic and tough conditions. Your Rat Blocker was designed to be durable and should last you years and years!
