Some people might want to eradicate their uninvited guests in a humane way with a live trap or a quick death by electricity, but that’s a personal choice. A mouse bait block can be even more effective. And if you are concerned about health risks posed by rats and mice, you need to take the problem seriously. When it comes to your family’s health, you can’t mess around and getting rid of the problem needs to be a high priority even if it means using poisons.
Mouse bait blocks offer a very appealing “two for one” option. The blocks act as the bait and, essentially, they’re also the trap! The mice are attracted to the block’s smell and if you’re lucky they will even carry the block to their nest. Once in the nest, it’s all over. Any rodents in the nest will share the bait and die.
The mouse bait blocks are easy to place in tight places and hard to reach crevices where actually putting a trap would be very difficult. Blocks are also very helpful for large buildings where setting enough traps can be difficult. And if there are fields or areas where large amounts of rodents can live in safety nearby, it’s a good solution for mouse trap bait.
This means that, a lot of the time, you won’t even see the mouse again. It will take the bait to the nest, eat it, share it and die there. And possibly if there are other mice there, they will eat the bait and also die.
One serious concern people have is the danger mouse bait blocks pose to their pets. Rat poison is a valid concern and it’s worth looking into. The threat level depends on the size of the pet and what kind of poison it ate.
Some of the mouse bait block-type products and similar items include:
- D-Con Rat and Mouse Bait Blocks
- Tomcat All Weather Bait Chunx
- Ortho Home Defense Max No Touch Bait Paste Packs
- Contrac Blox Rat & Mice Bait
- JT Eaton Rat Mice Rodent Bait Blocks
- Big Cheese All-Weather Block Bait Rat and Mouse Killer
Again, it’s a personal decision whether you want to use poison mouse bait blocks, but you can’t deny that they’re very a effective mouse trap bait to rid your home of rodents and the diseases they carry.
Note: If you have mice in your home, it might be better to try mouse traps like the Victor 2425. If the mouse eats the bait, it may die in a hard-to-reach place where you can’t retrieve it.
