Rentokil RADAR – The Humane Hitech Killing Machine

Rentokil RADAR

The Rentokil RADAR is the latest in mouse catching technology. The Rodent Activated Detention and Riddance Unit (I suppose RADARU doesn’t have quite the same ring to it), the RADAR works in the following sequence:

  • Mouse is lured into the mousetrap via smell of food
  • Mickey is then detected by infrared sensors which closes the traps door
  • Cloud of carbon dioxide released, Mickey is asphyxiated in 45 seconds
  • Owner receives text message with the good news

I don’t think there is ever a truly humane way of killing mice but the text message at the end was a nice touch.
