Both baiting and prebaiting is best done at sunrise. Birds will eat more at their first feeding than any other time of day. The bird's metabolism is at its highest in the morning and as a result will succumb to Avitrol Treated Grain more readily. In laboratory testing, if the dose is lethal, death will usually occur within an hour following administration.
