Welcome to
PLUG IN Pest Free March newsletter

During mass closures in 2020 caused by covid, the CDC* reported aggressive rat behavior was occurring due to the lack of food and waste restaurants and other commercial buildings often generate. As a result, rat behavior was becoming more erratic. As life is getting back to normal with restaurants and other businesses opening, we can’t become complacent with rodent control, as rodents may be poised to surge once again. In 2021, residents and business owners reported a surge in rat sightings with more than 21,000 sightings reported to NYC311*. Rodents have an acute sense of smell. Therefore, with an increase of food and waste from operating restaurants and commercial buildings, the likelihood of attracting rodents is highly probable. It is important to take care of waste materials, and with a few simple steps, you can do your part to reduce the number of rodents.

Whether you are a restaurant, business or residential, some of these simple steps can go a long way. For example:

  1. When handling trash, ensure to secure the trash can tightly to avoid rodents climbing and gaining access to the trash can, or trash falling out if toppled.
  2. Keep the trash area clean and hose around the trash area often.
  3. Consider spraying some natural deterrents around the trash area like mint, vinegar, cayenne pepper etc.

Prevention tips are always better than a cure, and can go a long way to help curb the rodent population from expanding.

For restaurants and other commercial businesses battling never-ending rodent issues and ongoing costly pest control maintenance, our PLUG IN Pest FreeCommercial Pest Management System is your answer! Our Commercial Pest Management System has been a vital piece of equipment that has helped many restaurants and other businesses significantly reduce and mitigate ongoing invasions from rodents and other pests.

For years the knee-jerk reaction to control rodents and pests has resorted to using baits, traps, toxic pesticides and other harsh poisons – most of which are inhumane. With a growing awareness more than ever of the risks and dangers associated with toxic pesticides and other harsh poisons, consumers and business owners alike are looking for effective alternative methods to treat and protect their premises from ongoing pest invasions – long-term!

Our Commercial Pest Management System and our PRO unit are certified by HACCP International (Australasia and Asia license regions) as food safe and an effective means of deterring rodents.

If you are a restaurant or business owner serious about the health and safety of your staff and customers and want to say good-bye to costly, never-ending, toxic, inhumane treatments and maintenance of traps, then look no further! Your new solution to controlling and mitigating your rodent and pest needs is just a PLUG IN away!

Spaghetti & Meatballs

Here is another great recipe from the Pioneer Woman that is simply perfection!
First the ingredients. You will need:
• 3/4 lb. ground beef
• 3/4 lb. ground pork
• 2 whole eggs
• 3/4 cup fine breadcrumbs
• 3/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese, plus more for topping
• 3 cloves of garlic, minced
• 1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley, minced
• 1/4 tsp. of salt
• Freshly ground black pepper
• Splash of milk
• 1/2 cup of olive oil

For the Sauce & Pasta:
• 1 whole yellow onion, diced
• 3 cloves of garlic, minced
• 1 can (28oz) crushed tomatoes
• 1 can (28oz) whole tomatoes
• 1/2 cup white or red wine (optional)
• 1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley, minced
• 1/4 tsp. of salt
• Freshly ground black pepper
• 1 tsp. of sugar
• 8 whole fresh basil leaves, chopped (optional)
• 2 lb. spaghetti, cooked to al dente

1; To make the meatballs, combine the meat, eggs, breadcrumbs, parmesan, garlic, parsley, salt, pepper and a splash of milk in a mixing bowl. Mix together well, using your hands (make sure they are washed and clean!). Roll into 25 1.5-inch balls and place on a cookie sheet. Place the cookie sheet into the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes to firm up.

2; To brown the meatballs, heat the olive oil in a heavy pot or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs, about 8 at a time, turning to brown on all sides (they will finish cooking in the sauce later). Remove and drain on a paper towel-lined plate after each batch. Set meatballs aside.

3; To make the sauce: in the same pot, add the onions and garlic and cook for a few minutes, or until translucent. Pour in crushed tomatoes, whole tomatoes with their juices and wine, if using. Add the red pepper flakes (as desired), parsley, salt, pepper and sugar. Stir to combine and cook over medium heat for 20 minutes.

4; Add the meatballs to the pot and stir gently into the sauce. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes, stirring very gently a couple of times.

5; Just before serving, stir in the basil, if using. Serve over cooked spaghetti and sprinkle with extra parmesan.

A: The most common rat in NYC is dominated by the Brown rat, also known as the Norway rat! The average adult body weight of an adult rat is approximately 12oz in males and 8.8oz in females. These rats are built for survival, as they can survive a fall from approximately 40ft high, and can survive being flushed down a toilet. They can also tread water for around 3 days, and can jump a horizontal distance of up to 4ft!

Which Is The #1 U.S. City For Rats?

According to pest control company Orkin, Chicago, IL takes the honors. Data kept by Orkin showing new rodent treatments from September 2020 to September 2021, put Chicago at the top of the list. It is suggested the brown rat has now become the most prominent rat in Chicago, edging out the black rat, which have moved more towards the west coast. Brown rats are excellent swimmers and climbers – making them even more challenging to eradicate. A female brown rat can produce between 8 – 12 litters per year, with an average of around 6 – 12 pups per litter. Those pups can start reproducing in as little as 8 weeks or less.
Chicago, IL has held the top spot for the #1 Rat City in the U.S. for 7 years running according to Orkin. Other cities on the list are •Los Angeles, CA •New York, NY •Washington D.C. •San Francisco, CA •Baltimore, MD •Philadelphia, PA •Detroit, MI •Denver, CO & •Cleveland, OH to round out the top 10 cities. To view all the cities that made the list, please check out this link for the full list
With winter now upon us, rodents are more likely to enter your residence as they look for shelter, warmth and safety. Our Patented electromagnetic pest control technology utilizes the existing low-level electromagnetic field the active electrical wiring creates inside your premises. PLUG IN Pest Free pulse modulates this existing low-level electromagnetic field to create a No-Go Zone – effectively creating a hostile environment to rodents* and pests* – thereby driving them back out. A helpful tip during the winter months is to turn your ceiling lights on earlier in the afternoon and leave them on longer during the evening. If any new arrivals do enter your premises, which may happen from time to time, with increased current running along your active electrical wiring producing the required electromagnetic field Pest Free pulse modulates, this can enhance the performance of your Pest Free device.
*Scientifically tested against rats, mice and to aid in the control of cockroaches, PLUG IN Pest Free has been known to be effective against many other rodents and pests as anecdotally noted by numerous happy Pest Free users from all over the world. A list of the most common rodents and pests anecdotally noted can be found on our product pages on our website

Q: What are some of the diseases brown rats are known to spread?
Check for the answer and interesting facts below.


This recipe was handed to us by our late founder’s wife Mrs June Connell who came across this recipe more than 35yrs ago, and has always been a hit on any table for any occasion.
First the ingredients. You will need:
 • 4 cups of rice crispy cereal
• 1 cup powdered sugar
• 1 jar of crunchy peanut butter (approx. 16.3oz)
• 1 bag of milk chocolate chips (23oz)
• 1 bag of white chocolate chips (23oz)
 Please the rice crispy’s into a large bowl along with the powdered sugar and crunchy peanut butter.

Mix together thoroughly.

Once mixed, roll ingredients into small balls. We choose to roll them a little less than the size of a golf ball. Place them on a tray and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.


Heat up the chocolate chips (milk and white chocolate separately) in a bowl until the chocolate is completely melted. Fill a small pan up with hot water to place the bowl of melted chocolate in to keep the chocolate melted longer.

With two spoons, place one peanut butter ball at a time in the bowl of chocolate and roll around. Place the peanut butter ball now covered in chocolate on a pan. Repeat until all the balls are covered in chocolate. Follow the steps above to warm white chocolate if you wish to have both milk and white chocolate peanut butter balls. If you wish to decorate the balls with sprinkles, do so whilst the chocolate is still melted. Once all balls are covered in chocolate (and decorated with sprinkles if so desired) and placed on a tray, place tray in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or until the chocolate has thoroughly hardened.
Once the chocolate has thoroughly set, place on a plate or in a bowl, serve and enjoy…

A: Brown rats are known to spread many diseases including Leptospirosis, Salmonella, Hantavirus, Plague, Rat Bite Fever, Listeria and Toxoplasma gondii etc. A common way rats spread their diseases to humans is through their urine.

Happy New Year…

Rats and Mice invade homes and businesses for Warmth Shelter & Food and they can create damage and disease through contact with their Fur, Urine and Droppings.

They transfer diseases by contaminating food preparation areas and utensils, and the most alarming is their capacity to cause electrical fires by gnawing on electrical wiring, as they nest in roof ceilings, and wall cavities. Some Electrical House Fires and Business Fires throughout the world are caused by Rats every year.

Rats are prolific breeders and each litter consists of 6 to 8 young and this means infestations can increase rapidly in a home or business where they are left to stay, if they are not forced from the premises environment. Pest Free has proven since January 1995 our Chemical Free Solution is by far the best and we are sure you will agree that the best way to keep rodents away from your environment, is to change that environment. Pest Free alters what is normally a friendly environment for rodents into a hostile environment, with our Patented and Scientifically Tested Proven State of Art technology. Without jeopardizing the health of your family staff or customers by having to use the old ongoing traditional Toxic, Poisonous and Hazardous Chemical Treatments, by Pest Controllers. Chemicals & Bait treatments by Pest Controllers only create dead bodies & foul odours throughout your Home or Business & that is not HEALTHY!

Plug-In Pest Free is the way of the Future in ridding your home or business of Rats & Mice without the use of Chemicals.

Simply because a pesticide is available for sale doesn’t mean it is safe. Numerous now banned pesticides were once thought to be safe to use, but have since been implicated in causing health issues.

There are many reasons why young children are most at risk from exposure to hazardous chemicals, not just because they are closer to the ground or because they tend to put things in their mouths. The down side of keeping your home pest-free is that chemical residues can linger in the air and soil, and on floors, carpets and indoor surfaces, where we can breathe them in or absorb them through the skin. Some chemicals can have immediate and acute poisoning effects, while others can accumulate and remain in our bodies for years.

History shows a consistent failure of regulatory authorities to prevent the contamination of the environment and human heal by products said to be safe such as Asbestos, Lead, Mercury, Dioxins, DDT, Dieldrin and other Persistent Organic Pollutants. These products were not (and are still not in many cases) withdrawn until decades after good scientific evidence was presented to demonstrate their damage.

Regulatory authorities around the world seem to be ignoring a large body of published science showing that the current methods of determining the safety of the agricultural poisons are grossly inadequate.

Our Regulatory approach needs to change. “Current regulatory practices give the chemical manufacturers the benefit of the doubt”. Substances can be removed from the market only if their health impacts can be demonstrated with scientific certainty. This burden of proof needs to be shifted as products should not be allowed on the market until they can be proven safe.

Pest Free would like to congratulate our dedicated Hong Kong Distributors, Ricky & Tammy Poon, for their outstanding achievement in winning the “Capitol Outstanding Green Excellence Award” recently held in Hong Kong. It is wonderful news which testifies to the strength of their Companies passion and commitment to offering green alternatives.

Pest Free has enjoyed a wonderful relationship with Ricky and Tammy and we congratulate them on this exciting reward and acknowledgement of their commitment to achieving a healthier safer world for our children and the generations of children to come.
