The MBS-1 Mouse Bait Station has been improved. Now it can be used for insects by way of the removable/reusable insect tray. Bait both mice and insects with the same station. Optional insect tray can be used with granular and gel bait. The MBS is made of 100% recycled injection-molded plastic, small, compact, economical, easy to operate and easy to clean. This station is used for control of mice in residential and commercial applications and be used indoor or outdoor. This compact, durable station has a smooth surface for easy maintenance and cleaning. It is designed with a durable hinge design for extended durability and reliability. It has a spring-loaded locking mechanism for easy closing and opening. This compact design allows the station to fit into tight spaces, either vertically or horizontally. The interior, specifically the bait area, is designed with raised edges to keep water out.
The MBS works with soft bait and comes standard with a metal bait rod which locks securely into the station, service label and VM’s universal gray key. The station measures 4.75”x1.25”x3.75”
Only 1 key is provided per order. You can purchase additionalKeys separately. Bait is Not Included - Must be purchased separately!

I have been using these bait stations for about 2 weeks now and they have definitely taken a beating from the wind and sun where I live. Being out in the elements has made these stations very difficult to open to check on bait and on some of the stations the key has actually bent the plastic when opening. Probably a good indoor station but not for the outside desert climate where I live.
I purchased these mouse bait stations to place underneath the house to bait mice before they get into the house. I followed the directions for placement and have checked them and mice have been eating the rat poison. Each station holds one block of rat poison. The quality is strong enough for the purpose I purchased them for. The key was a little tricky to use at first. Insert the key and turn towards the back of the station to open. I am satisfied with the purchase and the customer service received from DoMyOwn.
The unit is very small and requires a key and bait that are not included. it has room for a single piece of bait that does not last very long and requires replacement. Also the station would not work for rats because of the small size of the entrances.
It took 14 days for the station to arrive.
I'm wanting to poison mice, not chipmunks. Would this be safe for the chipmunks outside my home, or could they get into the poison?
Yes, it is possible that chipmunks can enter the MBS-1 Mouse Bait Station. There are not really any other options we know of since, mice and chipmunks can be close in size. You contact Your Local Cooperative Extension Office to see if there are any recommendations for your area.
Is MBS-1 Mouse bait station safe to use in home with a cat or dog?
Also, if the mouse gets any of the toxin/active ingredients on it and my cat catches this mouse can it hurt my cat?
The MBS-1 Mouse Bait Station are tamper resistant stations where animals and children are not able to get into the station and access the bait. If secondary poisioning is a concern, we recommend using a 2nd generation rodenticide such as Contrac or Final Blox where there is an antidote in the case of secondary poisioning. We always recommend contacting your veternarian if poisoning is a concern.
Do the MBS-1 Mouse Bait Stations trap mice or poison them and mice die outside the station?
The MBS-1 Mouse Bait Station does not trap the mice once they enter. They have access to enter and exit the station freely to gnaw on rodenticide (sold separately) that is inside. There is not a specific location that they do to die.
