These excellent outdoor bait blocks contain the advantages of Talon-G, in a formulation that withstands the elements-even in damp places where the competition falls apart. Talon Weatherblok XT also has a unique shape, which allows for high-density baiting and features gnawing edges that entice rodents to consume a lethal dose.

Remove as many other rodent food sources as possible. For the safety of others, Talon Weatherblok XT should always be applied out of reach by children, domestic animals and non-target wildlife, or in tamper-resistant bait stations.
This is the second bucket of this product that we have used to fill bait stations around our house. We live on three acres out in the county and mice and field rats are always an issue. They used to get in our house - no matter what we did they always seemed to find a way in. Since we started using this products several years ago, no more mice in the house!! I was worried in the beginning because we have 6 dogs that I didn't want to harm if they ate a poisoned mouse. This has not been an issue. I don't know where the critters go to die, but the dogs never seem to find them. I've seen them with squirrels and rabbits they have caught, but never a mouse or rat. This products also seems to have a long shelf life as it worked just as well at the last of the bucket as it did when we first opened the bucket years before. Wonderful product!
I am a professional exterminator with over 40 years experience. Having tried most of the bait blocks for rats and mice, I find the weatherblok xt blocks to have the best acceptance- and it is also good that they are wax impregnated so they last longer in customers places. I usually use them in conjunction with another bait to give the rodents choices, but invariably they choose the xt blocks.
What will happen if a rodent that has consumed the WeatherBlok XT is later eaten by a dog or cat?
Most pet dogs and cats are well fed and will not actually eat the dead rodents, but they will only chew or play with them. If the dog or cat did actually eat the rodent, there would most likely be no ill effect. Cats and dogs would need to consume many dead rodents to have any effect at all.
What is the difference between weatherbloc XT and Ditrac?
Weather Blox XT contains the active ingredient Brodifacoum and can take 1-5 days to kill and it is a single feed bait (meaning that rodents only need to feed one time to have a lethal dose build up its body).
Ditrac contains the active ingredient Diphacinone and can take 5-7 days to kill and requires the rodent to feed multiple times to have a lethal dose build up in its body.
If swallowed by a dog, how long before noticeable symptoms?
It would all depend on the size of the dog and how much they ate. Anytime you suspect a pet has consumed a pesticide, rodenticide, or any kind of chemical or product, you should call your vet immediately.
