Read on to learn more about rodenticides and how they can benefit your pest control plan.
What Are Rodenticides?
Rodenticides are a type of pesticide that are specifically designed to eliminate rodents, such as mice and rats. Most rodenticides are formulated as bait blocks to attract rodents and encourage them to eat the poison. Active ingredients in rodenticides fall into two categories, anticoagulants, and non-anticoagulants. Bait blocks formulated with the latter type typically allow you to control more mice with less bait.
Benefits of Using Rodenticides
Quick and easy rodent solutions are always preferable, especially when dealing with rodents that may be carrying harmful diseases. Rodenticides make quick work of mice, making it an efficient solution to add to your repertoire. The benefits don’t stop there though. Take a look below for many more reasons why rodenticides could be the best option for your home.
- Ease of Use & Placement — Most rodenticide bait stations are easy to use and do not require much or any assembly. Disposable bait stations even come ready to use with the bait already placed inside! To use, simply place the station where you’ve seen signs of mice and let the rodenticide do the work for you!
- Efficient Kills — The unique palatable bait formula keeps rodents coming back for more, so your infestation can be under control sooner. Each bait block encourages mice to keep chewing with appealing ingredients, such as oats.
- Choose Your Location — While bait stations should be placed near signs of rodent activity, you can get the upper hand by attracting mice to a specific location. This makes it easier to track their movements and adjust your placement to be as efficient as possible.
- Locking Mechanism — The Victor® Fast-Kill® Brand Refillable Mouse Bait Station comes with a unique locking design and key. The lock provides an extra layer of protection between the bait block and anything it may come into contact with.
