Generation Mini bait blocks with difethialone. Generation mini blocks rodenticide bait is enticing to rats and mice and kills rodents within just a few days. The Generation Mini Blocks measure 1 x 1 inch and were originally intended to be used in the Aegis Mouse Bait Stations. This is a new 16 lb size replacing the 20 lb pail.
Note: Due to New California State restrictions, this Can Not be Sold in California.
Roof rats and Norway rats here in Southern California. The suburbs near la; mostly roof rats I tackle, from the many stations I check and service the rats love generation mini blocks. I've found two dead rats in stations through the years which is pretty impressive to me. Unfortunately the shelf life needs to be addressed: the bait in stations need to be cycled out, even your source if left in the eliments locked away of course...wouldnt last more than a year I'd replace my source (my supply) accordingly , this is not marketing to get you to buy more it's just experience my friends, I've tryed them all even the fast track, red ones in color side by side with generation. Needless to say generation is the winner... A fresh tub of generation wen opened with a respirator on your face :) (read the label about dust) is somthing special. So get your stations and generation and rid your property of a these rodentia...
This product was purchased along with several other baits for a persistent residential rodent issue. I places these baits along with two other baits inside several rat bait stations along the perimeter of my house. I check the stations once per week, sometimes more than once per week. The rodents eat the other bait, but have consistently avoided this one.
We specifically bought these for a pack rat problem. But what it'd do was take the blocks to wherever it was planning on building it's winter nest. It maybe nibbled on just a couple, but took the rest (which, we put out about 12 blocks). So, not sure if it ate enough to poison itself. Long story short, what ended up happening was that we spotted it (as in one pack rat) moving from one vehicle to another and took care of him(yea!) Haven't seen any others (knock on wood). But if we do, we'll be prepared.
Is it safe to use Generation Mini Blocks in a basement without a bait container?
The basement is not used by anyone or animals and primarily used for junk storage (tools. Construction materials, etc.). I am being told by first floor tenants that he sees the mice coming up from the basement door into his apartment. I want to scatter extremely potent mice poison in the basement "loose" without a bait container.
"Apply bait in locations out of reach of children, pets, domestic animals, and nontarget wildlife, or in tamper-resistant bait stations.These stations must be resistant to destruction by dogs and children under six years of age, and must be used in a manner that prevents such children from reaching into bait compartments and obtaining bait. If bait can be shaken from stations when they are lifted, units must be secured or otherwise immobilized. Even stronger bait stations are needed in areas open to hoofed livestock, raccoons, bears, other potentially destructive animals, or in areas prone to vandalism.
Bait stations are mandatory for outdoor, above-ground use. Tamper-resistant bait stations must be used if children, pets, non-target mammals, or birds may access the bait."
We always recommend securing bait in bait stations to protect the bait from being translocated and from non-target animals and people. If rodents move bait, then you have no way of monitoring bait placements for rodent activity. Baits have active ingredients that can be harmful to humans, so we would never recommend using baits openly around personal belongings. Keep in mind, also, that bait contains food ingredients that will spoil over time, so old bait placements need to be removed so that they do not cause secondary problems such as insect infestations. So, you can legally use the bait in the basement area, but we would always recommend securing the bait, and it must be used in bait stations any time there is possible exposure to non-target animals or people.
We recommend to use traps for rodents indoors so that you can easily identify and remove dead rodents. There is no guarantee that you will be able to find rodents that have eaten and died from baits, so you could end up with secondary problems such as bad odors or insect infestations.
