Each pail of Fastrac Blox contains approx. 128 blox. Fastrac Blox kill faster than most baits on the market and rodents will die with just one feeding. Extra Protecta Bait Station Keys can be purchased separately.
I cannot tell you how difficult it's been for me to keep down our rodent population before discovering DoMyOwnPestControl.com. We live in a rural area with field mice and pack rats galore. They became immune to warfarin very quickly and I swear they would eat it like a tasty snack. I had to make high raised beds for my vegetables with the sides covered in smooth metal sheeting and still they'd get in there and eat everything up. It's like they had grappling hooks or something to climb up the smooth sides of the vegetable beds. It's so simple to set up: you fill the stations with the bait and position them around your yard and then replenish the bait every week or every few weeks, depending on how much bait you put in there to begin with. My only complaint is the difficulty I initially had with opening the stations with the key. But I feel very safe knowing our dogs can't break into these stations to get at the poison, so it's worth the struggle and once I figured out how to open them, it wasn't a problem. DMOPC was even willing to talk me through it on the phone before I figured it out. Thanks DMOPC.com!!!
I got what I expected and this is a good thiing.
Arrived on time, packaged securely, etc.
The items are easy to use and do the job.
My only complaint is that they only send one key to opent the stations, even though you get 12 stations in the box. The key probalby costs about 2 cents to make and is configured to be such that it woudl be hard to use a screwdriver to open the boxes. The webstie lets you order extra keys for $3.50 each. .. I like the stations and the bait but left with a bad feeling about them looking to nickel and dime me for an extra key. . .Spend the extra 2 cents and include a second key and you would have gotten five stars.
Works well but would have bought the larger size stations.

They work well, however I wish I ordered the larger size stations or the landscape rock bait stations. The entry hole on these is extremely small. I know mice can fit through very small openings, but I just feel it would have been better to go with the larger size. All in all it works. Found 1 mouse dying a slow death on my driveway. After 2 weeks and 8 stations setup each with 2 blox, 5 of the 8 had a decent amount of poison eaten and only 3 were untouched.
I bought this bundle because it was what I was looking for as well as being a fair price for it. What I got was exactly what was stated in the bundle ad. Since each station holds 4 blox the 128 pc bucket should last for a few reloads of the stations.
Can these be used inside a garage? Wont the mice crawl inside a wall, die, then stink?
You can use the tamper resistant stations like Protecta Mouse and bait indoors but like you suggested, the rodents can indeed crawl into inaccessible areas and die and they will definitely leave an odor behind. We always recommend using snap traps or glueboards indoors if the rodents have already made their way inside and we recommend using the bait outdoors to prevent rodents from taking up resident inside the structure.
