Iranian researchers produce non-toxic rodenticide

Iranian researchers managed to produce a non-toxic rodenticide using nanotechnology.

The product was produced by an Iranian new technology-based firm (NTBF), employing nanotechnology and is currently available in the market, Mehr News Agency wrote.

It is quite annoying to see a mouse at home or at work. When searching for food or scurrying around, mice spread certain diseases which is quite dangerous to human health.

Particularly, when scuttling in places where food is kept, such as kitchen, or children’s play rooms, the risk of them transmitting diseases to humans is greater.

A natural habit of mice is gnawing at things which means that the rodents can damage houses, furniture and home appliances.

A number of methods are used to get rid of mice. They include the use of mousetraps and rat poisons, which are the two most common ways to eliminate rodents.

Toxic rodenticides, however, pollute underground or surface water. They can also accidentally poison humans or kill pets.

Thus, production of nontoxic rodenticides has always been of utmost importance to both producers and consumers alike.

Since three years ago, Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council (INIC) has been involved in evaluating the quality of nano products by Iranian NTBFs and confirming their nanoscale dimensions.

The INIC has approved the quality of non-toxic rodenticide produced by Iranian researchers.

Routine evaluation of the quality of nano products and nanomaterials produced domestically is among the measures contributing to greater transparency in the marketing of such products, higher quality of the goods and winning the trust of consumers.
