Rat Baits

Choosing Rat Baits (Rodenticides)

 

 

Inspect your property to determine the size of the rat population and rat activity locations. Pay attention to signs such as fecal material, gnawed marks, grease marks, runways, urine stains and tracks. Click here: Rodent Inspection Tips.

 

 

  • Soft Baits: In recent years, professional pest control operators have seen the advantage of using soft baits. Soft baits have outstanding palatability and acceptance by rodents, even in areas where other food sources are a competition to the acceptance of applied rodent bait.  A soft bait that we recommend and have found success with is: 

 

Always use tamper restant bait stations  because not only are they effecitve but in most situations, it is the law. 

  • Pro-Tip: We recommend using T-Rex Snap Traps in the stations.  It only kills one rat at a time but it eliminates the possibility of the rat dying in an undesirable location.

Rat Bait Tips

 

  • Whichever rat bait you use, make sure the bait cannot be eaten by pets and other nontarget animals by using tamper-resistant bait stations.
  • Several protective tamper- resistant bait stations are available that allow rats to feed on the rat bait but keep pets and non-target animals from accessing the bait.
  • For monitoring purposes (food warehouses, restaurants, etc.), use a non-toxic bait like Detex Blox. Detex Blox does not kill the rodents but will tell you if there is a rodent population present when it is eaten.
  • If rats are abundant on the property, the use of rat traps with the rat bait will speed up the rodent control program.

 

 

Does Rat Bait Embalm the Rat?

Unfortunately, there is no rat bait on the market that embalms the rat. If the rat dies in an inaccessible area and you can not retrieve the carcass, there will be a smell for a while.

 

Rat Baiting Tips and Placement

Eliminate (as much as possible) all competing food sources and make sure an adequate sanitation program is in place. After the rodent inspection; place rat bait along their runways. Place rat bait every 15-50 feet for rat control. For a larger rat population, place rat bait at closer intervals.
