    Q
    How long does it take for a house mouse to die from ingesting Liqua-Tox?
    How long do I need to leave product out, assuming I don't actually see the mice consume it or happen to find little bodies laying around? How many doses does the mouse have to consume before it dies? If I happen to have a water source nearby, where would I put your product? What are the odds the little critters will consume the poison rather than the water?
    A
    Liqua-Tox II is a product that takes advantage of the fact the rodents need moisture to survive.  It works best in a situation where there may not be a moisture source nearby for mice or rats, like an attic or a crawl space.  If there is a water source nearby then Liqua-Tox may not be as effective; you may want to try a bait.  Once consumed, the product will usually kill within a few hours.  A rodent only needs to consume a small amount, this is a single dose poison.  You should remove all signs of droppings so you can monitor if there is still activity.  When you do not see any new droppings or signs of activity then you know the Liqua-Tox II has done its job.

    Q
    I'm concerned about secondary poisoning , how safe is Liqua-T product if a cat or dog were to eat a rat?
    A
    The risk of secondary poisoning with Liqua-Tox is very minimal. A mouse only consumes a very small amount of bait at a time and passes it very quickly only keeping a smaller amount in their liver until they succumb to the effects of the bait. A cat would have to actually eat 20-30 mice that have consumed the bait for it to have an effect. In most cases well fed domesticated animals will not actually eat a mouse or a rat that they come across. Instead they will play with it, chew it and then leave it behind.

    Q
    Is Liqua-Tox II a good poison to eliminate rats & mice quickly?
    They are eating our newly renovated house. We are worried about electrical, HVAC & plumbing that is all new. We can hear rodents gnawing on everything at night. We are in a drought right now, and we are currently using a non-secondary poison but this does not seem to slow them down.
    A
    Yes, Liqua-Tox II is a wonderful product that is labeled for both mice and rats. One place packet is mixed with 1 qt. of water. The liquid is placed into dispenser and will hold 8 oz. of the liquid poison.

    We also have a product like Final Blox, which is a single feed kill. This is an actual bait and is not mixed with water. You can place these in bait stations.

    If you have any addtional questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

  • Asked by Jack from Sugar Land Tx

    Q
    Does Liqua-Tox cause rats to go outside to get water and die outside the house?
    I have rats in my attic which will be hidden from sight in the insulation after dying. How will I find and remove their bodies?
    A

    There is no guarantee as to where rodents wil die when using any kind of rodenticide. Neither Liqua-Tox nor any other bait will cause rodents to move to a different location in search of water. Liqua-Tox is attractive because of its liquid formulation, but it will not remove rats from a location. Rat-X bait is a natural bait that reduces some of the smell of decomposing rodents and has been very popular. Be sure to use enough bait and placements and to follow the product label instructions.

    The best option for finding and removing dead rodents in an interior area is to use traps such as Trapper T-Rex Rat Traps or Trapper Rat Glue Boards. Using traps allows you to check your exact placements and remove rodents quickly.

  • Asked by Ms. from Chicago
    03/05/2015
    Q
    Will Liquitox kill in its original powder form or only in its liquid form?
    The nice in my area are smart I've used Final Blox and they wouldn't eat them whole in the bait box but when I crushed them and mixed in chocolate covered pretzels ground up really fine they ate it so I'm wondering if I could use this in its liquid form to do the same?
    A
    Liqua-Tox II is meant to be used as a liquid. It should not be used as a powder form according to the label. You will mix the packet in 1 pint of water for rats and 1/2 pint of water for mice.

  • Asked by Matt from Benton, Ar
    11/07/2017
    Q
    Can I use Liqua-Tox II in the roof of a restaurant or is it not usable around a food prep area?
    A

    Liqua-Tox II should not be used in areas where there is a possibility of contaminating food or food-preparation surfaces. Rats and mice are notorious for finding their way indoors. They can find even the tiniest crack in a structure and force there way in.

    • Try to locate as many entry points as possible and seal them with Stuf Fit Copper Mesh or Pur Black Foam.
    • Keep dumpster areas as clean as possible and keep lids closed when not in use.
    • Keep grassy areas mowed to eliminate possible hiding spots.
    • Place rodent bait stations near dumpster areas and along outdoor structure walls to kill rodents outdoors.
      If a rat or mouse infestation already exists in a commercial kitchen the use of glue boards and/or snap traps will be necessary.  Place the traps near areas where dropping have been found or near areas where rodents or rodent damage has been found. The use of rodenticides (rat poison or mouse poison) is usually inappropriate in indoor areas. A rodent could succumb to the effects of the bait and die in an area that is inaccessible causing a horrible stench, flies, maggots, roaches, and beetles.
