Uresh from Mercer Island Wa writes

Where is the best place for rat bait stations, next to the house near drain pipes or further out in the garden?

We used to have Terminix and they placed the rat bait stations out in the garden saying that it creates a perimeter ring around the house as opposed to right up near the house where there is no "safety" perimeter. Does this make sense?


Due to the new EPA regulations passed on June 4, 2011 you will be required to place the Protecta Rat Bait Stations around the foundation of your home and you will no longer be allowed to place the stations away from the structure. You should place the stations near areas where rodents would have best possibility of gaining entrance to your home. Near doors, vents and low windows or near other areas where you may have noticed activity would be the best choices.
