Rodenticide (commonly known as poison or bait) is a pesticide for eradicating rats and mice within and around buildings. If used correctly, complete control of rodents within the building can be gained quickly and easily. It’s important to note the risks involved with rodenticide, especially to non-target animals within the areas of treatment.
How much bait do I need to control my infestation?
The type of rodenticide kit required to control an active rat infestation will vary depending on the population’s size, competition for a food source, localised resistance and the general location within the UK.
As a starter, we recommend placing between 2 & 4 tamper-resistant bait stations baited with 150g of rodenticide per box, as this will control most active infestations. Additional bait is not uncommon for larger populations.
What type of bait should I use?
The type of bait is generally not as crucial with rats as they consume most feeds with little fuss. When baiting outside or in damp environments, we recommend blocks; if baiting within towns, we recommend pasta and whole wheat as an excellent all-around control method. All bait, by law, must be used within a tamper-resistant bait station.
