Sue from Port Jefferson, Ny writes,

Can squirrels enter the rat bait stations?

I have a rat that has discovered my yard and like to rummage under my bird feeder. I want to get rid of the rat but not the squirrels. I have already tried the snap trap and killed a squirrel and a chipmunk unintentionally.


Yes, it is possible that a smaller squirrel can fit in the Protecta LP rat bait stations.  Since squirrels and rats are similar sized, there are not really any options that will target only rats and not squirrels other than a live catch trap so if you happen to catch the squirrel you can let it go.
