Baiting Tips & Advice for Rat Infestations
Bait should be placed strategically in the areas rats frequent most. Rats cannot climb well so it is likely they frequent in the walls and clutter of your downstairs. They will eat the blocks and go back to their nest where it will begin to take effect. A rat will need to consume a larger amount of bait compared to mice. Therefore make sure you put down enough bait to provide a lethal dose. Not all rats will eat it straight away so be patient as this may take time.
Please note that this is only a good method to use and effective in a situation where you have access to the rat as they will perish in the nest and be left there until you are able to dispose of it. Also, so keep away from other pets such as dogs and cats.
Baiting Tips & Advice for Mouse Infestations
Baits are easy and effective to use. The bait can be set down in areas where mice are likely to travel, such as the back of cabinets and under appliances. They will eat the bait, return to their nest and perish.
A mouse will need to consume about 10g of poison in one day. They will not consume the desired quantity in one sitting, but should consume desired amount in one whole day. The mice will not die straight away. It will take a number of days for the mice to die after being poisoned. This is because if a mouse dies straight away the other mice will associate the smell of the bait to death and will not touch any other foods with the same smell.
