Fastrac Blox is a great option for use outdoors inside of bait stations. Be sure to use it inside of these bait stations so that no non-target animals come in contact with it. There is no antidote associated with this rodenticide, so be very mindful of that. Generally though, if your pet consumed dead rats after they consumed this product, there is such a small amount of the active ingredient in each bite that your pet will have to eat their body weight in rats to be affected.
Yes, when used as directed the Protecta EVO Express Bait Station is pet safe as the bait station is tamper-resistant. It is possible for your pet to encounter a dead rodent as there is no sure way to know where they will die after consuming bait. However, a rodent 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 consume multiple entire rodents in order to ingest enough poison to have effects. 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.
It is recommended that you use 4-6 Protecta EVO Express Bait Stations around the structure. Place one station at each corner of the structure and if needed, one by the front entrance and one near the rear entrance.
It is possible that the rats are not attracted to the bait you are using because there is another food source available to them. We would recommend removing any type of food items (pet food possibly) and/or moving trash to another area. If there are other food sources around, they will continue to go to those sources and avoid the rodenticide. Be sure you’re not handling the blocks or the Protecta EVO Express Bait Station with your bare hands, leaving behind your scent on these items will deter rodents from entering the stations and feeding on the bait. Ensure you have fresh bait readily available for the rodents. If baits become stale, moldy, wet, etc, it will no longer be attractive to the rodents. Lastly, rodents, rats especially, are very hesitant to check out new objects in their areas. You should bait the stations and leave them alone for a couple of weeks to allow the rodents to become used to it being there, and eventually they will become curious enough to begin to check it out.
