Article Preview

The effect of capsaicin/gelatin/acacia/NaCMC crosslinked mixture coated outside polyethylene (PE) films on rodent repellent was studied. The concentrations of capsaicin coated were 0.5%, 1.0% and 3.0%, respectively. Determination of the rodent repellent effect was performed using the weight of grain inside the PE coated bags and the bitten proportion of PE coated bags. The results showed that the PE coated films were significantly able to expel mice (P<0.05). It was also observed that the rodent repellent bags coated capsaicin of 1.0% and 3.0% were able to expel mice effectively over 7 days. The capsaicin coated outside PE films had a positive effect on rodent repellent.
