Rodent bait stations are used to protect rat or mouse baits, snap traps, or glue boards from weather, children, pets, and non-target animals.  The first thing to do when selecting a bait station is to know which rodent you are trying to control.  Rat stations are larger and will fit rats or mice.  Mouse stations are smaller and will only fit mice. If you are unsure whether you have mice or rats, go with a rat station.  Next decide what size and style of rat or mouse station best suits your needs and circumstances.  For example, Landscape bait stations are made to look like rocks and blend in with the environment.  LP or Low Profile Stations lay flat and fit easily behind and underneath appliances or furniture.  The majority of our bait stations and those on the market are Tamper-Resistant.  They have a locking mechanism and require a key for added peace of mind.  When baits are not permitted or desired, Protecta Rat Bait Stations can be used with the Trapper T-Rex Snap Trap in place of bait. You will also need to determine how much bait you need to place depending on the size of infestation.  Some bait stations hold a lesser or greater amount of bait.  Most stations will contain wells for pellet or liquid baits, as well as rods for holding bait blox.  The type of bait and how much each station holds can be found on the specific products page on our website.
