Rodenator??

Guys,
I know this isn't really a topic for the traditional application thread. But I am curious to know one thing!
I am venturing out for this Spring in purchasing the Rodenator system for mole eradication. The Question--" Has anyone ran into complications with the animal rights activists or with city and local animal control laws? I was notified by the company computer system sales staff that my area has no one that has purchased a unit for commercial use on resi's and commercials. I am wanting to bang the pavement with door hanger's, publication ads, and possibly radio.
I am wondering seriously about the a animal huggers as this system uses concussive means to kills moles, pocket gophers, mice,etc.

I've seen the YouTube video, looks like a bit overkill IMO.

The mole tunnels are too shallow . Won't work on them very good. It will work on gophers. The problem is, in town with close neighbors, they will freak out when you rattle their windows !

The rodenator is LOUD. You will have a hard time using it in town .

From the video I saw, the results after are worse than the damage burrowing critters do.


It is pretty cool though. I am thinking a minimum amount of alcohol is required before starting.

I agree that it looks like a tool used by Carl Spackler (Thanks Ric!)!!
It can be a useful tool for those that want the critter's gone and now!!
It may be noisy.......and messy but with a tarp placed in strategic areas, the mess is minimal.
As far as the bang......as long as it is within ordinance and with license......who cares.
I consider the bang as an attention getter to generate business. If those moles are gone, then money is to be made.

The noise is a BIG problem, been there done that.

Won't work on moles either, but you have your mind made up, go for it.

The rodenator is a very poor choice. The varmit getter is a much better system.
You don't have to hold the varmit getter during the explosion.
