    Mouse Bait Station works every time!

    By Patty on 12/08/2010

    As a landlord our number 1 nuisance call is mice. At the first sign of a dropping we use the bait box under the kitchen and bath sinks, under the stove and in the pantry. We very rarely see a dead mouse and in about a week we do not see any more droppings either. Boxes are locked for safety and bait does not smell - you are not "catching" the mice, just sending them outside in search of water where they die. Bait is a cube that fits tightly in the box. This system does what it is supposed to...it gets rid of mice in your house!

    Awesome product for landlords!

    By Eric on 04/25/2011

    Verified Purchase

    I am a landlord with several units. I use this station only in my properties. It is great because you need a key to open it so people (kids especially) can not open it up or tamper with it. In addition the mice love congregating here and feasting on the Contrac bait I use. Contrac is amazing stuff.

    The mouse bait stations

    By Bob on 01/26/2012

    We live here in Massachsuetts and are USA citizens. We also own a house in Nova Scotia which is furnished and ready for use. In the past, for several years, we had a lot of trouble with mice in that house. We bougth local hardware traps and bait repeateadly, but every time we went up, we found mouse tracks, empty traps, and the bait rolled up into balls and hidden here and there among dish towels, bedding, or pots and pans. A professional exterminator here in Massachusetts told me about these stations. Now we find no traces of mice when we go up, and we feel that our bedding and linens are clean and safe for us. The mice have nibbled now and then inside the stations, but there is no other evidence. No tracks any more! Also, I feel this is so much cleaner and easier for us than to handle dead mice hanging from a trap and buying new traps all the time. .

    Protecta Bait Station

    By Dan on 05/16/2011

    Excellent product. Needed something to help keep the dog from eating the bait and to a lesser extent the pesky squirrels. Well made, easy to open with the supplied key, secure. 4 of the stations for $19 is a great price, shipping was reasonable (especially compared to Ace Hardware who wanted $15 to ship something that weighs 8 ounces!?!?!?) Anyway, great product, great company.

    Finally....something that works

    By Ron on 08/07/2011

    Living next to a wooded area, voles, moles and mice have been a constant pain in the behind. Got so bad I once replaced the lawn to get rid of them and their tunnel network. Years of peanut pellets, peanut butter, warafrin bait, traps, smoke bombs, and water hoses have finally come to an end. The pesky critters thumbed their pointy little snouts at me for the last time...party over!! In under two weeks with Final Blox my flower and mulch beds are no longer being aerated by voles. The fence line is no longer a living highway of tunnels and holes. The dinner party and a yard full of holes is over. Final Blox is as bad as it can get. FB and bait stations are the black box restaurant of death, their last meal! Very pleased with the quick results of the product and the customer service and timeliness of the delivery, 3 days!! Thank you, FB & DMOPC.

Q
Do Mice Build a Resistance to the poison in Place Packs and or Bait Blocks?

It seems like an annual occurrence where the mice come back every year when the weather gets cold. This time, I am having a very difficult time. They are ignoring the packets, they are wary of the traps. I used different traps with cereal as bait held in place with peanut butter. Also used an electronic trap. Got 8 in traps so far. And 2 bait blocks are being eaten. The ones caught in traps were small maybe juveniles and there are 2 different size droppings. I think the Mommy and Daddy are teaching the kids what to avoid.

A
There are some instances when rodents can be resistant to a certain active ingredient in a bait and there may be instances where the rodents will avoid the bait all together (bait is old or spoiled, too many alternate food sources are available). We recommend changing to a bait with a different active ingredient so that you will have fresh bait and you can avoid any issues with resistance. We also recommend you inspect your home very carefully and seal up any holes you can so you can exclude the mice from entering your home in the future. You should also purchase tamper resistant bait stations (with a high quality bait) to use around the perimeter of your home so you can eliminate the mice outdoors before they have a chance to look for a way in. Please take a moment to read our article Rodent Proofing for Fall to learn more about excluding rodents from your home.

Q
What should I do if my dog chews on the Protecta RTU Mouse Bait Station but doesn't get it open?
A
We would recommend relocating the Protecta RTU bait station in an area that is not as accessible to your animals to avoid any issues in the future. Unless the openings are chewed shut or the station will not close, there is no reason to replace the station.

Q
Do the bait blocks expire or go bad?

How long do the bait blocks last?

A

Once a pail of rodenticide has been opened, the bait will remain effective for a year if kept in the airtight bucket in a cool, dry place.  As for blocks that are placed in a bait station, we recommend changing out the bait every 30 days.

Q
Do I just get one Protecta RTU Mouse Bait Station key per order?

I see it says one key per order, I am looking to buy 6 cases of these would I get 6 keys (1 key per case order) or will I only get the one key for all 6 cases

A

We apologize the Protecta RTU Mouse Bait Station keys are not provided to us from the manufacturer. As a courtesy, we include one key per order. If you like you can order additional keys
