RatMat Launched At PestTech 2018

Hammer Technologies were excited to launch the RatMat with Killgerm at PestTech on the 7th of November 2018. We were proud to be invited to be part of Killgerm’s awesome stand at the exhibition and were overwhelmed by the positive response we received. The footfall at the stand was probably the highest at the show and interest in the RatMat was high. Many people were excited that the product would be able to solve problems which were proving difficult. Damage to combine harvesters and ingress of rodents through factory and commercial unit doors were issues which came up several times. RatMat is an ideal solution to these problems.

It was mentioned several times that it has been decades since a true innovation has come to pest control and that many new products were just rehashes of old products. A significant number of the pest controllers we spoke to were optimistic that the RatMat could revolutionise pest management in several areas, particularly agriculture and food manufacture. Recent legislation is limiting the use of rodenticides which is reducing the options for pest control experts. RatMat gives them another solution which is humane, effective and cost-effective.

The Evolution Of Rat Repellent For Car Engines

Rats commonly damage car engines and upholstery. Our research showed that 9% of UK car owners have suffered damage to their car at some point in their lives. This includes the chewing of wires, tubing and plastic parts of the car. Our findings showed that it wasn't uncommon for cars to need a complete rewiring after being damaged by rats. This can cost upwards of £7000 for a top-notch sports cars such as a Porsche.

Many rat repellents for engines are suggested on the Internet. Peppermint oil and wolf urine are often mentioned as possible rat repellent for car engines. For every tale of these working, there are two saying that it made no difference. Simple things like moving the car or tampering with it may be enough to have kept the rats away in some circumstances.

If a rat is aware that something has changed even subtly in the environment it may be enough to keep them away for several weeks. Adding in an unpleasant smell may deter them for a while longer but once they get used to it and realise that there is no threat they may well return.

This is where our product comes in. Hammer Technologies Rat Repellent Flooring uses a completely new method to keep rats away. It has a patent pending and makes use of unique hardware to protect your car engine and car wiring from rodent damage. It is useful way when other methods have failed.
