If mice or rats have invaded your home or yard, you’re perfectly within your rights to scream as loud as you can. After that, though, you’ll need to get serious about getting rid of these pests quickly. A single pair of mice can produce about 50 offspring in just one year (try not to scream again) and a pair of rats can produce anywhere from 24 to 84 annual offspring. Fortunately, using bait and bait stations to kill these trespassing pests is both simple and effective.
How Effective Are Bait Stations At Killing Rodents?
When it comes to killing rodents, there’s a reason bait stations are a popular solution. A single box of Baraki bait can kill up to twelve mice. A mere 240g of Miratex Rat Killer bait can kill as many as 10 rats. When using multiple bait stations, you can quickly control your rodent infestation before it gets any bigger. Pests like mice and rats can harbor disease, so the sooner you get rid of rodents from your home, the quicker you can safeguard your food, home, and family. Once a rodent nibbles a lethal dose of the bait, it will begin to die within 24 to 48 hours. It only takes a very small amount of Storm Blox bait to kill each nibbling pest.
How Do Rodent Bait Stations Work?
A bait station is not the same as a mouse or rat trap; rather, it is a clever device that holds a bait block. The bait block looks and smells like rodent food but contains poison. Don’t worry—the stations are designed to resist tampering from pets and/or children. The rodent, seeking out food, locates the bait station, crawls inside, and nibbles the bait. Then it crawls back out and likely heads to its nest, where it will die within a day or two. All bait stations are EPA approved for use either indoors or outdoors. All bait stations have a see-through top so you can monitor bait usage.
Types of Bait Stations
- Child & Dog Resistant bait stations offer consumers the highest level of tamper resistance for both children and pets. These products can also be used indoors or outdoors. Child & Dog Resistant bait stations are available in both mouse and rat sizes. If you have a mouse problem, try the Mouse Killer Child & Dog Resistant, Disposable Station, and for a rat problem, use the Rat & Mouse Killer Child & Dog Resistant, Disposable Station.
- Child Resistant bait stations, on the other hand, are tested to be tamper-resistant when it comes to children. Child Resistant bait stations are available for mice and rats, like the Econo Child Resistant, Disposable Station.
- Disposable rat bait stations: If your mouse or rat problem is small, you might opt for a no-mess, pre-loaded, disposable station.
- Refillable bait stations: If you have a severe rodent problem and prefer to purchase refillable bait stations, you should remember to always were rubber gloves when handling the bait, and store baits well out of reach of children or pets. Refillable stations are available for both rats and mice.
Where To Place Bait Stations
To quickly lure rats or mice to the bait stations, you should place them between their nest and food source. As mice and rats are creatures of habit, they tend to take the same route back and forth as they scurry for food and water.
As with mechanical traps, it’s best to place the bait stations along the wall where the rodents are likely to come upon them as they travel. It’s common for mice to quickly enter the bait station and nibble. Rats may take a little more time to enter the station as they tend to be more cautious. If your bait stations do not get results within a couple of days, you should move them to a new location. For best results, place bait stations for mice at intervals of 8 to 12 feet, and intervals of 15 to 30 feet for rats. Be sure to follow the directions on the packaging as well when placing your bait stations.
Remember: When loading bait in refillable stations, wear disposable gloves, place bait block the cartridge, and push the cartridge into the station until it clicks into place. Extra bait blocks should be stored in areas that children and pets cannot access, and bait blocks should not be used without a bait station.
