DESCRIPTION: Protecta Mouse Bait Stations are an integral part of baiting. They keep bait away from children, livestock, pets and other animals, as well as protect the bait from dust, dirt and moisture so the bait stays fresh longer.
Dimensions: 6"L x 5 1/2"W x 2 1/2" H
USE: Place station near baseboards, corners, or in spaces where rodents are likely to travel. Rodents will enter stations out of curiosity, and the presence of rodenticide baits placed inside the station. Protecta stations do not come with baits. We recommend purchasing Contrac Blox Rodenticide baits for use in the Protecta stations.

Great product, you may want to oder more keys . . .
By Jason on 12/20/2011
Quick delivery, great price, product no different than what the professionals install. When you order a case of 12 stations you only get one key. If you have an assistant to help reload mulitple stations, you will want to order another key.
The only problem is that I lost 5 traps out of 12. Some larger animal must have carried them away. I just drilled 2 1/8 inch holes next to each other on the side and slipped a tie wrap through and sunk a piece of rebar into the ground. Then I slipped the closed tie wrap over the rebar and have not had a problem with them stealing my traps.
Securing a bait station outdoors to keep raccoons from dragging them around?
I have several large bait boxes outside and racoons are dragging the stations around and they are cleaning out the bait bloxs completely. My first question is the a way of securing the Protecta Mouser bait stations so the raccoons cant drag and knock it around?
Second questions is does the bait blox kill the raccoons if the eat the poision bait blocks?
Raccoons are much larger than mice, so yes the bait can kill a raccoon but they would have to eat a large quantity. It is a lot easier to secure rat sized stations than the smaller mouse sized stations. Other then drilling a hole through the station and securing it to a pole or structure using a chain, you can also use liquid nails and glue the station to a landscape paver. Either way should help deter raccoons from dragging the stations off.
What tier would the Protecta Mouse Stations be considered by the EPA?
The EPA is coming out with new rules for rodenticides called Final Risk Mitigation. All bait must be placed in tamper resistant bait stations.
Tiered Bait Station Requirements for Consumer-Use Products
o Tier 1 – Tamper-resistant for children and dogs; weather resistant; tested according to EPA protocols; indoor and outdoor use;
o Tier 2 – Tamper-resistant for children and dogs; tested according to EPA protocols; indoor use only;
o Tier 3 – Tamper-resistant for children; tested according to EPA protocols; indoor use only; and,
o Tier 4 – Self-certification; packaging not reasonably anticipated to release other than small quantities of bait; resistant to opening by a child less than six years old; indoor use only; non-refillable (one-time-use only).
The Protecta line of stations that need a key to open, including the Protecta Mouse Stations you are asking about, are all tier 1 level bait stations. They are tamper-resistant to children and pets and can be used both indoors and outdoors.
Once the mouse goes into the Protecta Mouse Bait Station, can it get out again?
Mice can leave the station after they enter. The Protecta Mouse Bait Stations are tamper resistant boxes that stop non target animals and children from having access to the poison bait you place in the station. You could place a Mini T-Rex Mouse Trap in the station if you wanted to catch the mouse and protect non target animals and children from the trap.
Are there any differences in the size of the openings between the Protecta Mouse and Rat Bait Stations?
If so, what are the hole sizes? I'd assume the mouse bait stations have smaller holes.
You are correct. The Protecta Mouse Stations have smaller holes and are meant only for mice. The Protecta Rat Bait Stations have larger holes for rats to enter, but mice could also enter if they were present. Normally, you would determine what type of rodent you have, rat or mouse, from the size of the droppings. If you are not sure, then you should get a rat size station because it could accomodate both.
