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.
