Company History

Controlling rodents is a battle man has fought for centuries. Rats and mice pose a major threat to the health and well-being of the world. They carry and transmit often deadly diseases to man, contaminate food supplies, destroy property, and prey upon birds and other wildlife.

At Bell Laboratories, Inc. we focus our resources exclusively on developing the most effective rodenticides and other rodent control products for the global market.

Building on Our Past to Create a Better Future

Today, Bell Laboratories manufactures a complete line of rodent control products – rodenticides, tamper-resistant bait stations, non-poisonous glue boards, mechanical traps and attractants – which are sold to pest control and agricultural markets on six continents.

Product research and development are ongoing at Bell as scientists respond to the needs of the pest control and agricultural industries for new products and improved formulations. Bell Laboratories has registered more rodenticide products with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) than all other rodenticide manufacturers in the U.S. Bell also has hundreds of registered products overseas.

As the only rodenticide manufacturer in the United States to synthesize the anticoagulant and acute technical materials used in its baits, Bell Laboratories maintains complete control over its rodenticides which ensures the highest quality products.

In 2005, Bell Laboratories branched out with the introduction of its revolutionary new bait to control moles, TALPIRID, which is available in the U.S.

Bell Laboratories’ modern campus in Windsor, Wisconsin, USA, houses over 600,000 sq feet of new buildings, including the corporate office, manufacturing operations, biological and chemical laboratories, and warehouse. Bell’s international presence includes an office in the United Kingdom to serve its customers in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. For customers in Australia and New Zealand, Bell maintains an Australian staff and a warehouse in Sydney.

While these physical environments support the company’s goal of excellence, it is the many dedicated people working for Bell Laboratories who bring that goal to fruition.
