Place bait where there are signs of rodent activity, like fresh droppings, inside or near nests and burrows, runways and rodent feeding places. Place bait points throughout the infested area. Regularly check bait consumption and replace consumed or spoiled bait until consumption has stopped. Repeat treatment in situations where there is evidence of new infestation (e.g. fresh tracks or droppings).
To control rats secure 1-4 sachets in covered tamper resistant baiting stations or covered bait points spaced 10 metres apart (5 metres apart in areas of high infestation) in areas where rats are active. Do not move or disturb bait points for several days after laying bait. If no signs of rat activity are seen near the bait after 7-10 days, move the bait to an area of higher rat activity.
To control mice secure 1 sachet in covered tamper resistant baiting stations or covered bait points spaced 5 metres apart (2 metres apart in areas of high infestation) in areas where mice are active. Mice are very inquisitive and it may help the control program to move bait points every 2-3 days at the time when bait points are inspected or topped up.
Make frequent inspections of the bait points during the first 10-14 days and replace any bait eaten by rodents or that has been damaged by water or contaminated by dirt. If all the bait has been eaten from certain areas, increase the quantity of bait by placing more bait points. Do not increase the bait point size. It is generally much more efficient to use a larger number of small bait points compared to a smaller number of large bait points. Large bait points increase the risk to wildlife and to other non-target animals.
Prevent access to bait by children, birds and non-target animals (particularly dogs, cats, pigs and poultry). Baits must be securely deposited in a way so as to minimise the risk of consumption by other animals or children. Where possible, secure baits so that they cannot be dragged away. When using the product in sewers, bait should be placed in a way to protect it from flooding or displacement.
Search for and remove dead rodents at frequent intervals during treatment (unless used in sewers), at least as often as when baits are checked and/or replenished. Daily inspection may be required in some circumstances.
