Kaput Rat & Mouse Bait imitates the natural food source for rodents like rats, mice, and voles by being manufactured as a loose grain. Easy to use the place packs can be placed as a whole unopened package in areas where rodents feed. Rodents can smell Kaput Rat & Mouse Bait through the packaging material which they can then gnaw into and enjoy. The packs can also be opened and the grains portioned out if smaller portions are called for in the job.
Warfarin, the active ingredient, is anticoagulant that is effective at very low dosages and because of this is considered a low risk bait with very low secondary and environmental toxicity. Kaput Rat & Mouse Bait should never be applied above ground, but rather only into burrows. If the bait is accidentally ingested by pets or children Vitamin K1 is the antidote and it is readily available.
This may only be used inside and within 50 feet of buildings or inside transport vehicles (ships, trains or aircraft).
For best performance, remove other food sources from the area. Rats: 2 - 8 placepacks per bait placement in intervals of 15 - 30 feet in infested areas. * Maintain a 10 day supply of bait. Mice: Open pack and apply 1/4 to 1/2 ounce of bait per placement at intervals of 8 to 12 feet. * Maintain a fresh supply of bait for 15 days. Voles: Open pack and load one ounce (half of a pack) of bait into each bait station. * Situate bait stations near runways, burrow openings or plants that voles have been damaging. * Maintain a fresh supply of bait for 15 days. * Use a tamper-resistant bait station when children, pets, or non-target wildlife are present.
Kaput is LESS toxic to non-target animals. An antidote, Vitamin K1 is readily available. Use in tamper resistant bait stations or areas inaccessible to non target animals and children.
If unopened and sealed, it will last 2-3 years if kept away from extreme temperatures. Once opened and properly resealed, product should last a year in normal conditions.
All bait placements must be inside or within 50 feet of buildings.
Green Loose Grain
* Presented as a loose grain, it is packaged in two ounce place packs. * Rodents readily accept the bait as a food source because it mimics the grains and seeds that they naturally consume. * The convenient packaging ensures easy application of the bait in appropriate quantities according to your specific needs.
I had to up my game because the mice were winning and not eating the big box store bait any longer. I put a 1/2 pouch of Kaput in any hole I found in my yard and did that when I saw activity (clean holes) and after two weeks, no more activity. Woo-Hoo! Definitely worth the price.
The critters were attracted to the poison right away and 2/3 was consumed. I know it worked because there was a bad stench that said rotting carcass, Best and most effective poison I have ever purchased.
My primary objective is to get the voles out of my vegetable garden, where they ate two whole rows of peas. I’ve replanted the peas by first laying v-shaped strips of window screening in the rows. The peas have germinated and are up; at least they didn’t get eaten in the ground, as before. I can't really rate this product yet as I've only been using it for a week, but a star is required to submit, so I'm being hopeful. I did some preliminary investigation before starting to use the bait in the yard. There are many dead spots in the grass. I first placed flags in the yard to identify existing vole holes - 60 of them so far grouped fairly close together in two separate roughly circular areas. Then I filled in all the existing holes with dirt. The voles haven't reopened those holes but have made new holes just beside some of them (not all). I'm considering that those new holes indicate an active tunnel and I’m putting bait in the new holes, covering them with a square of white cardboard and a rock. I'm checking each morning to see what other new holes have appeared outside the perimeter of flagged ones, and putting bait in those new ones also. When 2 or 3 new holes appear close together, I'm only putting bait in one of those, to conserve bait. Because these holes are in grass, often I don’t actually see a new hole but instead feel it through the ball of my foot or my heel, that there is a depression there. By pulling away the covering grass, the hole becomes visible. I've never seen any of these voles but am finding holes over a large territory, including the bank of the creek, about 50 ft away. Those holes I will just cover with a rock.
i've used a dozen or so of these packets and i have to say the vermin love them. i've attracted mice and shrew and they empty the contents and look for more.......unfortunately, they keep coming without being affected by the poison. i had to use Tomcat glue traps to catch the critters.
i'm disappointed these don't work.
If the pests are indeed eating the bait, they are being killed by it. It is important to keep bait available at all times to avoid having a new population move into the area and causing a new infestation.
Will rats retreat from area before dying or die inside home and smell?
Just want to know if rats die inside walls, behind cabinets and cause a smell and odor in home.
When using Kaput Rat & Mouse Bait, along with any other rodent bait, there is no way to pinpoint where the rodent will die. They could, unfortunately, die anywhere - under couch, in walls, etc. The only way to guarantee where the rodent dies is to use traps such as the T-Rex Traps or Victor Tin Cat Mouse Traps.
