Fastrac All-Weather Blox contain food grade attractants already in them. You should not add anything else to the blocks or bait stations. Be sure you’ve removed all competing food sources so that the rodents are forced to consume the blocks. If there are other food sources around, they will continue to go to those sources and avoid the rodenticide. Be sure you’re not handling the blocks or the bait stations with your bare hands, leaving behind your scent on these items will deter rodents from entering the stations and feeding on the bait. Ensure you have fresh bait readily available for the rodents. If baits become stale, moldy, wet, etc, it will no longer be attractive to the rodents. Lastly, rodents, rats especially, are very hesitant to check out new objects in their areas. You should bait the stations and leave them alone for a couple of weeks to allow the rodents to become used to it being there, and eventually they will become curious enough to begin to check it out. Mice are slightly more opportunistic and will go in before a rat will.

We always try to get our customers to avoid using rodenticides such as Fastrac Blox indoors because you can't control where a rodent goes to die after consuming a lethal dose of rodenticide. If the rodent dies in a wall void or other inaccessible location, this can cause issues with odor in the home if you are not able to remove the dead rodent. For this reason we recommend using glue boards, snap traps, and/or multi-catch traps indoors, so that you will know exactly where the rodent has died and can remove it with ease.
We recommend using bait inside bait stations outside the home and using traps in areas directly under the house or in areas where you have seen the rodents traveling. Baiting outside the home with the single feed anticoagulant rodenticide Fastrac in the Protecta Rat Bait Stations is a great combination. Fastrac has a quick kill knockdown time of 12-48 hours after feeding. A great trap to use is the Trapper T -Rex Trap.
