RODENT PEST MANAGEMENT with FASTRAC and FINAL BLOX Rodenticide
- Good for a new account; knocks the population down to a manageable level.
- An acute rodenticide, like Bromethalin found in FASTRAC, works in the shortest amount of time.
- Select a higher toxicity, single-feed rodenticide for a heavy infestation where there is strong food competition within the active population.
- Controls a persistent infestation for an existing account.
- In areas where non-target animals are present, select a single-feeding bait which is lower in toxicity (Contrac).
- A variety of tools may be required for complete control because not all rodents in a population are the same.
For Prevention and Maintenance use CONTRAC BLOX Rodenticide
- Once the population is under control, maintain a comprehensive rodent control program.
- Monitor for new activity which will alert you to a resurgence of rodent activity.
- A second generation anticoagulant (Contrac) is recommended for occasional invaders to ensure they ingest a lethal dose in a single feed.
CHOOSING THE CORRECT FORMULATION OF BAIT
Extruded Blox Bait
- Most popular choice of bait form
- Highly palatable and weatherable
- Can be used indoors and outdoors
- Features multiple gnawing edges
- Has a hole down the center for securing on rods in tamper-resistant bait stations
- Pellets are an excellent choice for burrow baiting
- Weatherability makes pellets popular in moist weather conditions
- Hard, compact shape satisfies a rodent’s desire to gnaw
- To apply, use a long handled spoon and place directly into the rodent’s burrow
- Highly palatable formulation and made with seeds and grains
- Offers a variety of textures and flavors which is good for finicky rats or mice
- Important to place in dry areas; it’s the least weatherable bait form
- Ideal to use when food is abundant
- Liquid bait is more acceptable in dry conditions
- Strategically place liquid baits where rodents will readily encounter them
- Ideally suited for rats
Tracking Powder Restricted Use (Must Have License)
- Effective when food is abundant
- Can be very successful against neophobic rats
- Apply tracking powder in rodent runways and/or rat burrows
- During the grooming process, rodents will ingest a lethal dose of tracking powder
BAITING the THREE LINES of DEFENSE
Perimeter of the Property:
- Place tamper-resistant bait stations along the perimeter of the property
- Use Blox bait as it can be secured inside bait stations on vertical or horizontal securing rods
- Choose the correct active to reduce the risk of secondary poisoning to non-target animals
- Rodents tend to gravitate to warm air currents or where food odors emerge
- Tamper-resistant bait stations or traps should be placed every 30-50 ft. depending on the severity of the infestation.
- Place bait or traps around all entry doors
- Rodent device placement depends on the type of infestation you are dealing with:
- Mice: Space placements at 8-12 foot intervals depending on the severity of the infestation
- Rats: Space placements at 15-30 foot intervals depending on the severity of the infestation
METHODS OF SECURING TAMPER-RESISTANT BAIT STATIONS
- Concrete: Attach to patio blocks, concrete nail gun/screws, liquid nails, double sided tape, Velcro
- Asphalt: Attach to patio blocks, barbed spikes, duckbill anchors, secure to vertical surface (wall, pipe, fence), Velcro
- Natural Soil: Attach to patio block, barbed spikes, secure to vertical surface, duckbill anchors
- Tile: Attach to patio block, liquid nails, contact cement, double sided tape, Velcro
- Wood: Nails, screws patio block
KEY PRINCIPLES TO SUCCESSFUL BAITING
1. Choose the right bait for the job – Your choice of rodenticide depends upon the environmental conditions and the severity of the infestation.
2. Place bait where rodents travel – Your inspection will identify the problem areas and the species involved. Place bait where rats and mice will find it.
3. Proper number of bait placements – Place enough bait to get rid of rodents. Keep up a fresh supply of bait and remove any spoiled or rancid bait.
4. Read the rodenticide label before placing bait – The label instructions give useful information on bait placement. “The label is the law.”
5. Use bait stations wherever safety is a concern – Tamper-resistant stations keep bait away from children, pets and non-target species.
6. Eliminate the rodents’ food, water and harborage wherever possible – Knockdown the population first before applying rodent-proofing measures, as disrupting the rodent’s environment may send them scurrying.
* It is a common myth that rodents will go outside to die after consuming bait
A NON-TOXIC APPROACH TO PEST MANAGEMENT
- Identify rodent pathways and place traps accordingly
- Common attractants include peanut butter, chocolate frosting and nutella
- When children and pets are present, place snap traps in tamper-resistant bait stations
- Identify active runways and place mechanical traps in dark areas, along walls & behind objects
- Ideal placements in commercial facilities are along both sides of interior and exterior doorways
- For fast and easy servicing, use a glue board in conjunction with a mechanical trap
- Use Provoke Professional Mouse Attractant with all mouse traps to increase captures
- Provoke is non-toxic and hypoallergenic, so it can be used in sensitive accounts
- Bell attractants are targeted specifically to the feeding preferences of rodents
- Glue Boards can be used to monitor the presence of rodents and insects
- Place glue boards in active rodent pathways
- Keep glue boards free of dust, debris and moisture
- For sensitive accounts, use Trapper Max Free, hypoallergenic, scent – free glue traps
