RATS

General Information

IMPORTANT: Do not expose children, pets, or nontarget animals to rodenticides. To help to prevent accidents:

1. Store unused product out of reach of children and pets.

2. Apply bait in locations out of reach of children, pets, domestic animals and nontarget wildlife, or in tamper-resistant bait stations. These stations must be resistant to destruction by dogs and by children under six years of age, and must be used in a manner that prevents such children from reaching into bait compartments and obtaining bait. If bait can be shaken from bait stations when they are lifted, units must be secured or otherwise immobilized. Stronger bait stations are needed in areas open to hoofed livestock, raccoons, bears, or other potentially destructive animals, or in areas prone to vandalism.

3. Dispose of product container and unused, spoiled, or unconsumed bait as specified on the label.

NOTE: Bait stations are mandatory for outdoor, above ground use. Tamper-resistant bait stations must be used if children, pets, non-target mammals or birds may access the bait.

USE RESTRICTIONS: This product can only be used to control Norway rats, roof rats and house mice in and within 100 feet of man-made structures constructed in a manner so as to be vulnerable to commensal rodent invasions and/or to harboring or attracting rodent infestations. Examples of such structures include homes and other permanent or temporary residences, food processing facilities, industrial and commercial buildings, trash receptacles, agricultural and public buildings, transport vehicles (ships, trains, aircraft), docks and port of terminal buildings and related structures around and associated with these sites. Fence and perimeter baiting, beyond 100 feet from a structure as defined above, is prohibited. This product must not be applied directly to food or feed crops.

Burrow baiting with Contrac Rat & Mouse Rodenticide Ready To Use Place Pacs is prohibited.

Do not place near or inside ventilation duct openings. Do not contaminate water, food, feedstuffs, food or feed handling equipment, or milk or meat handling equipment or surfaces that come into direct contact with food. When used in USDA inspected facilities, this product must be applied in tamper-resistant bait stations. Do not broadcast bait. Do not use this product in sewers.

SELECTION OF TREATMENT AREAS: Determine areas where rats or house mice will most likely find and consume the bait. Generally, these areas are along walls, by gnawed openings, in corners and concealed places, between floors and walls, or in locations where rodents or their signs have been seen. Protect bait from rain and snow. Remove as much alternative food as possible.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

RATS: Apply 2 to 10 Place Pacs at intervals of 15 to 30 feet per placement. Maintain an uninterrupted supply of fresh bait for at least 10 days or until signs of rat activity cease to appear.

FOLLOW-UP: Replace contaminated or spoiled bait immediately. Wearing gloves, collect and dispose of all dead animals and leftover bait properly. To prevent reinfestation, limit sources of rodent food, water, and harborage as much as possible. If reinfestation does occur, repeat treatment. Where a continuous source of infestation is present, establish permanent bait stations and replenish as needed.
