Terad3 Pellet bait by Bell Labs features the newest formulation in the fight against rodent infestations, using a whole new active ingredient: Vitamin D3. This new Vitamin D3 bait kills anticoagulant-resistant rats and mice (those resistant to other baits such as Contrac) and substantially reduces the risk of secondary poisoning. Terad3 also poses a low toxicity to birds. The bait features dense, tightly compacted pellets with superb durability, mold and moisture resistance and the ability to remain stable in temperatures as high as 200F. Best of all, with Terad3 you get a highly palatable and attractive rodent bait that rats and mice just can't resist.
They guy who gave it one star because it didn't kill the birds on his deck, and wanted a refund because he foolishly spent the money on a product that doesn't work.....well he was a fool for spending the money on a product that list one of the benefits as a "low toxicity to birds"....it's a rodent killer! Good Grief!
I live by the river and in the woods, so rats are just part of the package. This product works great for rats of all types. At first I just used it in the house and then we broadcast it in the crawl space because they come up from the river through the ground. I haven't had a problem since! And no secondary problems! The mice didn't seem to like it as much until I pulverized some of the pellets (using gloves and a dust mask). And I have a cat and three dogs, no problems.
Great product, really works well. I had been using the Lixit in the water but was always missing a couple of mice, but this seems to have gotten them all. I highly recommend it. The only problem is that the mice do not seem to find it as tasty as I expected so I added just a bit of other stuff to draw them in.
Mice in the storage part of the ceiling were gnawing at night, causing damage and sleep interuption. I placed pellets round the edges and after several days, the gnawing stopped and I detected the dead mouse smell when entering. Previously, I had used traps and sticky boards to no avail. Pest Control couldn't rid this problem. I don't know if it works for everyone, but it did for me. Thank you for this product.
I spent a fortune trying to get rid of voles the nice way, and all they did was multiply. It had gotten so that my yard looked like a corn maze. Within a few days, a noticeable difference was seen. Within one week, there was almost no new activity, and that was on the outskirts of the property line. I am buying more so that I will have back-up if the critters return. This stuff works, and I have seen no evidence of dead birds which I was very concerned about.
looking for a dehydrating formula to leave dry carcas
There are no products on the market like what you speak of. It has been a myth for years that a product like this exists, but it does not. Anticoagulants prevent the rodents blood from clotting and the rodent will die from internal bleeding. Contradictory to popular belief, there is no poison that will make a rodent go outside to die. If it does die in a wall it will smell for a short amount of time. There is no poison that will make the rodent not smell. There are other ways to kill and/or capture mice such as glue boards and snap traps.
Will Terad 3 poison dogs, cats or birds that eat the dead rat?
Terad 3 is very popular because of the reduced risk of secondary poisoning. A pet would have to eat a large amount of the actual bait to become very ill. In turn, a pet would have to eat a huge number of rodents that ate a small amount of bait to become ill. Most pets don't eat dead rodents....they may bring them to your doorstep but most do not consume the carcass. Of course you must do your part and use discretion on where you place the bait for the rodents so it is out of reach of children and pets. For additional information on the product, please refer to the MSDS and product label.
How do you apply this when combating voles in your yard?
Did not see residential instructions on how to apply this product outdoors to combat voles. Do you just pour some down the vole hole or on a a well travelled path?
