Rodent Baiting: Location recommendations and other Useful Information

Bug Lady posted this on Aug 11, 2016

Rodent BAITING Your Three Lines of Defense:

When we refer to rodent baiting it simply means to use a rodenticide (Poison) to control and eliminate your rat or mouse population. There are a variety of rodenticides and bait stations that can be used for the purpose of rodent control. From large lockable units call EZ Kleens Bait Stations to small corner units that hold 1 bait block referred to as Protecta RTU’s.

Perimeter of the Property

On the outside of the structures you will want to use the larger stations EZ Kleens, they will hold more bloxs and will not need to be check as often, easy to located due to size and not likley to walk off, can be glued or staked.

  • Place tamper-resistant bait stations along the perimeter of the property
  • Use Blox bait as it can be secured inside bait stations on vertical or horizontal securing rods
  • Choose the correct active ingredient to reduce the risk of secondary poisoning to non-target animals


Exterior Baiting:

  • Rodents tend to move towards warm air currents or where food odors emerge
  • Tamper-resistant bait stations (EZ Kleens) or traps should be placed every 30-50 ft. depending on the severity of the infestation.
  • Place bait or traps around all entry doors

Final Rodent Bait Poison

Controlling them inside the structure

Interior Baiting:

  • Rodent device placement depends on the type of infestation you are dealing with:

For Mice you can space placements at 8-12 foot intervals depending on the severity of the infestation we like the Protecta RTU’s Bait stations because they can be tucked into corners.

For Rats Bait station space placements at 15-30 foot intervals depending on the severity of the infestation
