HOUSE MICE

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Use bait to control the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus), Roof rat (Rattus rattus) and House mouse (Mus musculus) inside of buildings only. This product is not to be used outdoors or in areas near farm wells or water reservoirs or in areas where there is a possibility of contaminating sources of drinking water.

USE LIMITATIONS: Treated baits must be placed in locations not accessible to children, pets, domestic animals or wildlife or in tamper-resistant bait stations.

Do not place bait in areas where there is a possibility of contaminating food or surfaces that come in direct contact with food. Bait MUST either be placed in tamper-resistant bait stations or in locations not accessible to children, pets, wildlife, or domestic animals. To ensure safe use of this product, tamper-resistant bait stations should have the following characteristics:

- constructed of high-strength material (e.g., metal or injection molded plastic) and resistant to destruction by children and nontarget animals;

- entrance designed so that children and nontarget animals cannot reach the bait;

- internal structure which prevents bait from being shaken loose;

- access panel which fastens securely and locks (e.g., metal screw or padlock);

- capable of being securely fastened to a surface (e.g., nailed down);

- clearly labeled: \"WARNING POISON\".

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

APPLICATION DIRECTIONS:

HOUSE MICE: Apply 1 piece of Fastrac All-Weather Blox Rodenticide per placement. Space placements at intervals of 2 to 4 metres in infested areas. Two pieces may be used at points of extremely high mouse activity.

BAITING STRATEGY: Highest bait consumption is expected to occur on the first day or two after treatment begins. After several days, inspect the placement and replenish bait at sites where there is evidence of heavy feeding or where there is continued evidence of rodent activity. Normally, the volume of bait consumed will be significantly less with bromethalin baits than with anticoagulant baits. Although one night’s feeding will usually provide a lethal dose, maintain bait for at least one week to provide all rodents a chance to feed on the bait. Continue baiting until all signs of feeding have ceased. To discourage 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.
