Baiting strategy for effective control

Eliminate a far as practicable, all alternative food sources. Bait the infested area. Place baits under cover. Inspect baits daily. Replace eaten baits.

If quickly eaten, increase number of baits. Continue observation and replenish until no more baits are taken. Baiting for at least two weeks is necessary to reduce rat and mouse numbers.

Locate bait stations along walls or rafters and in dark sheltered spots where there are signs of rodent activity. Nail or fix in place if relevant. Wax blocks are particularly suitable for use in damp situations where risk of contamination should be minimized. Record the number and locations of bait stations for purpose of replenishment and later removal.

Look for dead rats or mice – burn or bury them, do not place in refuse bins. Inspect all bait stations regularly and ensure baits are removed when rodent activity has ceased.

Most rodent deaths occur 4 to 7 days after consumption of bait.

Storage and disposal

Store in the closed, original container in a cool, well ventilated area. DO NOT store for prolonged periods in direct sunlight. Break, crush, puncture and bury empty containers and dispose of unused bait in a local authority landfill. If no landfill is available, bury the containers or unused bait below 500mm in a disposal pit specifically marked and set up for this purpose clear of waterways, desirable vegetation and tree roots. Empty containers
and product should not be burnt. DO NOT use containers which have held bait for any other purpose. Dispose of carcasses safely by burning or burying in an approved landfill.
