I put out the boxes with the bait about 2 weeks ago and do not see any feeding activity in the stations. I see a lot of rat trails but no dead rats. I am not satisfied with this bait and may have to go back to warfarin type bait
There are several reasons why you may not see feeding activity on the Fastrac Blox. Firstly, rats are neophobic, meaning they are not trusting of new items in their environment, so it will take some time for them to get used to new stations being placed in their environment. You should be sure to eliminate any competing food sources in the environment so that the bait is the only attractive food source. Be sure to use gloves or a tool such as tongs to handle the bait.
Fastrac is also a single feed bait, which means rodents only have to feed on it once to consume a lethal dose of active ingredient. Because of this, it is sometimes difficult to tell when rodents have already fed on bait placements.
Keep in mind that warfarin or other first-generation anti-coagulants are multi-feed baits, meaning the rodents need to feed on the baits many times to consume a lethal dose. This can sometimes lead to resistance when baiting populations over long periods of time.
