SMART Boxes are non-toxic trapping units that catch rodents above ground. When a rodent enters the trap, sensors detect movement and body heat. A catch function is activated, immediately killing the rodent with an electrical current. The rodent is deposited into a plastic bag in a closed container. The trap is then automatically reset and ready for action again.
SMART Boxes do not use toxic bait. They are also securely installed and locked, so they’re safe for people, other animals, and the environment.
SMART Boxes monitor and record rodent activity 24/7, and they send alerts directly to Modern Pest when activity is detected. Modern Pest services each box every 48 hours or sooner, if needed. The City will also use the data from the SMART Boxes to inform ongoing mitigation strategies.
