Select Treatment Areas
- Determine areas where rats, mice, or meadow voles will most likely find and consume the bait. Generally, these areas are along walls, by gnawed openings, in corners and concealed places, between floors and walls, or in locations where signs of rodents have been seen.
Protect bait from rain and snow.
- Remove as much alternative food as possible.
Place 1 to 6 Blocks per placement (usually at intervals of 15- to 30- feet). Adjust the amount of bait applied to the level of rat feeding expected at each bait placement.
- Sewers (for Rat Control Only):
For use in sewers, thread wire through a block and securely attach to a stationary structure such as the bottom step of a manhole ladder or a sewer grate. Allow just enough wire for the block to rest on manhole benching. If benching is not present, suspend the block a few inches above the high water mark or secure the block on a board supported by opposing steps of the ladder. Securing block in this manner may inhibit removal by rats or water.
- Use at least 15 Blocks per manhole. Maintain an uninterrupted supply of fresh bait for at least 10 days or until there no longer are fresh signs of rat activity.
Mice and Meadow Voles*:
Use 1 Block per placement. Space placements at intervals of 8- to 12- feet in infested areas. Larger placements, up to 2 Blocks, may be needed at points of an extremely high mouse or meadow vole* activity.
- Baiting Strategy:
The highest bait consumption is expected to occur on the first day or two after treatment begins. After several days, inspect the placement and replenish bait at sites where there is evidence of heavy feeding or where there is continued evidence of rodent activity.
- Normally, the volume of bait consumed will be significantly less with bromethalin baits than with anticoagulant baits. Although one night’s feeding will usually provide a lethal dose, maintain bait for at least one week to provide all rodents a chance to feed on the bait. Continue baiting until all signs of feeding have ceased.
FOLLOW-UP: Replace contaminated or spoiled bait immediately. Using waterproof gloves, collect and properly dispose of all dead, exposed animals and leftover bait. To discourage reinfestation, limit sources of rodent food, water, and harborage as much as possible. If reinfestation does occur, repeat treatment. Where a continuous source of the infestation is present, establish permanent bait stations and replenish them as needed
