Detex Blox is used as a monitoring rodent bait with no toxicity. Made of 16 human food-grade ingredients, it has a high bait acceptance and weatherability. Detex has a biomarker called Lumitrack that causes the rodent dropping to glow a bright green under black light.
If a black light is used, the rodent droppings can be tracked. This is useful to identify the size of infestation and rodent movement from harborage to nesting areas. If there are active burrows, they will also be illuminated.
When To Use Detex Blox
This completely non-toxic bait is used to monitor rodent activity. After a discovery of rodent activity, switch to a poisonous bait or use rodent traps.
How To Place Detex Blox
Detex Blox is an all weather blox and may be used outside or inside. It may fit in Protecta Bait Stations, Protecta RTU Bait Stations, Protecta LP Bait Stations or Protecta Evo Bait Stations.
- Begin by placing Detex in areas of susceptible rodent entry points and around the perimeter of buildings.
- Rats: Use 1 Detex Blox every 30 - 50 feet
- Mice : Use1 Detex Blox every 6 - 14 feet.
Record these locations for future use in placing poison rodent bait or rodent traps. Inspect monthly for rodent activity; during the autumn and winter months, inspect more frequently.
Steps If Rodent Activity Is Found
If the bait has been gnawned or eaten, replace Detex Blox with toxic rodent bait or traps as appropriate until the infestation has been controlled.
