Pressurized Exhaust Rodent Controller (PERC)
In response to population explosions in recent years, Agate Conservation District jointly purchased with Double El Conservation District a PERC machine, for leasing to landowners dealing with infestation levels of prairie dogs.
The PERC treatment applies pressurized carbon monoxide to the burrows and is a humane method of control. Treatment will not leave toxic carcasses or residue, does not require poisons, and is not a threat to other animals. Vegetation, turf, plants and trees are not disturbed.
