Daniel from Miami, Fl writes
A pest control came to my mothers home and used a white powder base poison to rid the home of rats in the attic / roof. The gentleman placed the powder in a PVC shaped in a "T" filled the long part of the tube with the powder and at the end of the PVC shaped in a "T" he opened up the two top ends and filled it with peanut butter on one side and anchovies on the other. Closed the lids where the Peanut Butter and the Anchovies where placed, placed the PVC in the attic and sure enough the stampede of rats came and then no longer to be found...
Unfortunately the product that was probably used was the Ditrac Tracking powder which is a restricted used product only available to licensed professionals. We do a product called Rat X which would be recommended safe for use when baiting inside.
