Research and Development

To control the toughest pest problems, PelGar believes it is important to first understand pest biology and behaviour, and then to create products and solutions that best exploit these natural behaviours.

Over the past decade PelGar has closely monitored live pens of ‘wild’ black and brown rats and house mice for behavioural and palatability studies. These behaviours and preferences are a critical part of its rodenticide product development. PelGar then takes its baits out to live field trials, where all of its rodenticide formulations are extensively tested in a variety of real life scenarios.

In PelGar’s research and formulation laboratories over 30 species of insect pests are cultured and studied. These facilities also allow PelGar to test its range of insecticide formulations against a variety of insect pests, creating the ideal solutions for different pest species.
