  • Rats Chewing Plastic

    Created by Jason Brand on

    Hi, I’m wondering if you can help. I have a large rubber/ plastic above ground pool and have had problems with what I think is rats or rodents chewing away at it. Do you stock a coating that would prevent them or at last put them off doing it? Or maybe something else that may help?

    Hey Jason,

    We unfortunately don’t have any sort of protective sealant for your pool. We do, however, sell a granular spread aimed at keeping pests away called Shake Away as well as a Sonic Pest Chaser from Victor. You could use these products around your pool to keep pests from nibbling away. I’ve included links that should help.

    ​Additionally, you can always try to catch the pests with an easy bucket trap method: http://gentlemanhomestead.com/diy-five-gallon-bucket-mouse-trap/

    ​Hope this brings you closer to a solution​!
