Select Treament Areas : After inspection, determine the areas where the rats and mice will find and consume the Fastrac Pellets. Generally, these areas are by gnawed openings, along walls, in or beside burrows, in concealed places and corners, between walls and floors, or in locations where rodents or their signs have been seen. Protect bait from rain and snow. Remove as much alternative food as possible
Rats : Apply 1 to 6 ounces of bait 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.
For treating burrows, use a long-handled spoon to place ½ to 1 ounce of Fastrac Pellet bait deep into each active burrow entrance. Close burrows with soil 3 to 7 days after bait placement. Retreat with Fastrac Pellets the burrow entrances that are reopened by rats. If the area where treated burrows are located is accessible to children and nontarget animals, check burrows every morning and evening to make sure that the pelleted bait has not been pushed out of burrows. Remove and properly dispose of any bait that has become accessible to children or nontarget animals.
Mice: Apply 1/4 to 1/2 ounce of Fastrac Pellet bait per placement. Space placements at intervals of 8 to 12 feet in infested areas. Larger placements, up to 2 ounces, may be used at points of extremely high mouse activity
Fastrac Baiting Strategy: Highest bait consumption of these pellets 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.
USE RESTRICTIONS: Fastrac Pellets can only be used to control Norway rats, roof rats and house mice in and within 100 feet of man-made structures constructed in a manner so as to be vulnerable to commensal rodent invasions and/or to harboring or attracting rodent infestations. Examples of such structures include homes and other permanent or temporary residences, food processing facilities, industrial and commercial buildings, trash receptacles, agricultural and public buildings, transport vehicles (ships, trains, aircraft), docks and port of terminal buildings and related structures around and associated with these sites. Fence and perimeter baiting, beyond 100 feet from a structure as defined above, is prohibited. Fastrac Pellets must not be applied directly to food or feed crops. Fastrac Pellets may be applied to active rodent burrows to control Norway rats, and roof rats within or beyond 100 feet of buildings and man-made structures, provided that infestations of these rodents have been confirmed. Fastrac Pellet Bait must be placed no less than 6 inches into active Norway/roof rat burrows. Do not broadcast bait. Because Norway/roof rat infestations may occur in areas farther than 100 feet from buildings and man-made structures when the rodents have ample supplies of food and cover, efforts should be made to remove food trash, garbage, clutter and debris.
FOLLOW-UP: Replace contaminated or spoiled bait immediately. Using waterproof gloves, collect and properly dispose of all dead, exposed animals and leftover bait. To prevent reinfestation, limit sources of rodent food, water and harborage as much as possible. If reinfestation does occur, repeat treatment. Where a continuous source of infestation is present, establish permanent bait stations and replenish as needed.
