DESCRIPTION: Contrac® All-weather Blox® Rodenticide is a multi-edged, single feeding Rat and Mouse bait. It is formulated with an optimal blend of food grade ingredients and low wax to yield a highly palatable, weatherable bait that is very attractive to rodents. Contrac® All-weather Blox® contains Bromadiolone, which is less toxic to non-target animals in primary and secondary poisoning.
USE: Baits are small 1 oz. size and can be placed in bait stations, in holes and burrows, or where mice and rats tend to travel. A hole in the center of each block allows it to be placed on bait securing rods in tamper resistant mouse bait stations or rat bait stations, or nail or wire it in place.
NOT FOR SALE IN: AK
Ready-to-use CONTRAC BLOX bait pieces feature a patented multi-edge design that gives rodents plenty of gnawing edges per piece. The 1-oz. bait pieces fit easily into burrows, bait stations and tight baiting places. A hole through the center lets you wire/hang the bait, or place on bait securing rods for added security.
It is colored blue and authorized by USDA for use in federally inspected meat and poultry plants.
Do not place bait in areas where there is a possibility of contaminating food or surfaces that come in direct contact with food. Do not broadcast bait.
SELECTION OF TREATMENT AREAS: Determine areas where rats 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 seen. Remove as much alternative food as possible.
Norway rats and house mice may consume a lethal dose in one feeding with first dead rodents appearing four to five days after treatment begins.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
APPLICATION DIRECTIONS: Each bait block in this container weighs approximately one ounce.
RATS: Place 3 to 16 CONTRAC BLOX (usually 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.
MICE: Place 1 block per placement. Space placements at 8- to 12- foot intervals. Two CONTRAC BLOX may be needed at points of very high mouse activity. Maintain an uninterrupted supply of fresh bait for at least 15 days or until signs of mouse activity cease.
RATS AND MICE: Replace contaminated or spoiled bait immediately. 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.

Mice like it. But...
By Robert in Upper Darby PA 19082 on 02/24/2009
I live in a row-house and have an on and off again love-hate relationship with mice. They love me. I hate them. I put these Contrac Blox in my detached garage and almost every morning they are nibbled at (there is a field behind the garages). They eat it but is it true that if the bait goes stale you have to throw it out? Does it become ineffective? How long? Is there an expiration date on the pail? I would hate to buy the 18 lb size and then have to throw most of it out. Help?
The fact that the bait is being eaten every day is a good sign. Mice will not die immediately after eating rodenticide baits, and will probably die somewhere out in the field on their way back to the burrow. Contrac lasts about 2 years in the bucket. When placing the bait, the manufacturer recommends that the bait be changed out every 40-60 days.

This stuff is the best!
By Denis in Washington, DC on 05/12/2010
Living in a restaurant filled neighborhood in DC with unkempt neighbors on both sides of our house led to our backyard becoming a rat highway. It got so bad that we would have 6 or 7 running across every 5 mins. all night - and they were getting closer and closer to the house. We looked at all kinds of new fencing options only to realize it wouldn't have made a difference since they'd probably just burrow underneath it. We bought this and in less than 1 week's time, we have abolished every rat! We only had one meet his maker in the yard that we had to dispose of, the other hundred or so wandered off to die. It's been close a month now and we still have not seen one. This stuff is BAD A@!.

Mice are gone!
By Tom on 08/23/2005
We were getting rundown with field mice from the lot next to our home. Traps were not getting the job done. After 2 weeks using Contrac Blox Rodenticide the mice were gone....Thanx

By Tarik on 03/13/2010
This stuff is the truth. I've tried the Rex traps and other traps but those other methods just didn't get the job done. I live in a duplex with joining garages and my neighbor had dog food which attracted the rats. They were multiplying faster than I could trap them. I bought Contrac and placed them in stacks of three around my garage also stacked six of them where the garages joined. The next day the six were gone. I replaced the six with six more, they disappeared. Within five days not a sign of rats or droppings. I didn't even have to dispose of the dead rats. This is a winner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Best I have seen
By Harold on 11/09/2006
This is the best I have seen. I had a bucket of Contrac Blox rodenticide sitting in the barn and the rats ate a hole in the top of the bucket.
Worked for us
By Jason in Brooklyn, NY on 06/27/2016
We had an outdoor rat infestation in our urban garden. It took a little bit of time, but after 2 weeks of baiting with Contrac, we had a major rat die off. Eight rats over a two day period. Now, haven't seen any activity for the last week. Hopefully it got them all. Very happy with this site and the product.
By Lou in York, PA on 06/27/2016
I am giving this 4 stars because I see a lot of activity in the bait stations but with poison you can't tell how well it's killing because you don't always see the critters. I hope to at least start noticing less lawn damage as time goes on, then I'll know how well it works.
Contrac not attracting critters
By James in Townshend VT 05353 on 06/25/2016
This is the first time I used contrac I changed from final bite so the forest population would not build an immunity. It just doesn't work, either the grain is too old or some thing has been added that repels rodents, chip monks etc. Would not recommend, pick final bite it works.
By Russell in Illinois on 06/24/2016
I've used this for a long time in my pest control and have no complaints. Works fine.
By Clint in Allen, TX on 06/11/2016
I wasn't so sure of getting this quantity since I live in a newish urban area, but the occasional roof rats pushed me to the brink. I decided to get and bait 5 stations and leave full time around my house for year around maintenance. Its been very successful so far, I like that this product takes effect much quicker than the limited items at the big store chains. By the way, the quick delivery exceeded my expectation.
By Judy in San Antonio,TX on 06/01/2016
Great poison. The rats eat it and go off and never come back.

By Steve in Oregon City, Oregon on 05/16/2016
My wife and I live on five acres surrounded by hay fields and woods. Rats and mice are everywhere. When we first moved to our home 22 years ago we tried to not use poison but we couldn't keep up with traps. After extensive research we decided to try Contrac Blox Rodenticide. The product is invaluable in keeping rodents at bay. Using Contrac in locked bait stations ensures that it will be safe for pets and children. Our Airedale, Hayley, has never touched the stations. I use Protecta LP Rat bait stations loaded with Contrac around the outside foundation of our house and small barn. I check the stations monthly. No more rat or mice problem. I can't speak highly enough about the product. It works! An 18 pound pail lasts about two years. Ordering from Do My Own Pest Control is quick and easy.

This stuff is the best. Don't waste your time and money with the stuff you can buy at your local store, all of that stuff is more expensive, breaks down too fast and falls apart which can be a danger to your pets if they get a hold of a piece of what the rodent left behind.

Rats could not wait to get more of this!
By Ann in Citronelle, AL on 05/10/2016
They ate a hole in the bucket to get a taste of this poison.I'm thinking this is a good sign that they will eat this stuff up quickly and reduce the population in our barns.

QWhat are the new regulations on rodent products that go into effect on June 4th, 2011?
AThe federal government has decided that certain types of rodenticides should not be sold in the same manner they have been after June 4, 2011. These regulations were passed to try to prevent over the counter sales of rodenticides to homeowners and minimize secondary poisoning and misuse of rodenticides. Unfortunately too many people have placed rodenticides in locations they should not be, such as easy to access places that children and pets can easily get to. Basically all of the smaller quantities of rodent bait that you have been able to purchase over the counter will no longer be available. You will only be able to purchase bait already inside a rodent station that is a one time use product. It will come pre-baited in a sealed rodent station. This will be the general rule for big box stores like Wal-Mart and Home Depot. For a specialty store like ourselves, Do My Own Pest Control, we will no longer be able to sell certain rodent place packs, liquid rodenticides, or bait blox in smaller quantities than 16 pounds. This was passed to discourage homeowners from purchasing rodenticides since they have to now purchase them in large quantities. Most homeowners do not need 16 lbs worth of place packs. We will be able to continue to sell the current stock that we have of currently labeled product while supplies last. However, after June 4th, once we sell out of our current stock and start receiving newly manufactured bait, we will no longer be able to sell it in less than 16lb increments. There will be some baits that we can continue to sell in smaller quantities but they will be very few and only the ones that have a minimal secondary poisoning risk.
QWhat happens to mice after they eat Contrac Blox?
I live in a mobile home and I purchased Contrac Blox and scattered it under my home. What happens to the mice after they eat it? How long does it take for them to die? Do they need water for this product to work?
AContrac Blox is an anti-coagulant which means once the mice eat this product they begin to bleed to death from the inside. The mice first become sick, and then grow tired and weak and pass in their sleep. It can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days depending on how much the mice have eaten. They do not need water for the product to work.

QIs secondary poisoning an issue for cats when using Contrac Blox rodenticide?
We have mice in unfinished areas of our home (garage, basement, and attic) and we have placed bait boxes with Bellís Contrac in these areas. We are not concerned about primary poisoning with our cats since they not allowed in these areas (and the poison is in boxes that the cats could not even fit into). However, my concern is about secondary poisoning. If a mouse somehow made it to a part of the house where the cats are and one of the cats ate the mouse, could it get secondary poisoning from Contrac? I would really appreciate some feedback as I have received mix answers from asking around, including our vet who was not really sure and suggested we contact you all. Thank you!
AThe risk of secondary poisoning with Contrac Blox is very minimal. A mouse only consumes a very small amount of bait at a time and passes it very quickly only keeping a smaller amount in their liver until they succumb to the effects of the bait. A cat would have to actually eat 20-30 mice that have consumed the bait for it to have an effect. In most cases well fed domesticated animals will not actually eat a mouse or a rat that they come across. Instead they will play with it, chew it and then leave it behind.
QWhich rodent bait is best for mice in a house that has two dogs?
I have mice in my house and was wondering which poison is better, Final Blox or Contrac Blox for me? I was reading the info on both and do not really know what the difference is, since they both claim to be the best, which confuses me since they are made by the same company. So my question is which one is best for mice in a house that has two dogs? The bait stations will be placed in areas of the house that the dogs can not get to (attic/basement).
AContrac Blox is usually preferred in homes with pets and/or children as there is a readily available antidote in the event of accidental ingestion and because of the reduced risk of secondary poisonings (if one of your dogs were to eat a poisoned mouse). Final Blox is used when a fast clean out is needed as it will kill the rodents a bit faster than the Contrac Blox. Final Blox does have a higher risk of secondary poisoning. We recommend that you use tamper resistant bait stations that will help stop accidental poisonings of non-target animals no matter which bait you select.
QHow long do the Contrac Bloxs stay fresh if stored properly in the bucket?
Does the product fade in time due to opening and closing lid to use product? How effective is this product compared to the individual contract pellet packets?
AContrac Blox should be used within about 1 year of the purchase date. The active ingredient within the product would most likely stay effective long after 1 year but the food ingredients or the attractants will start to degrade and will no longer be attractive to rodents. Just opening and closing the lid of the storage container would not cause the product to lose its efficacy, but storing the product without a lid could cause it to mold or otherwise degrade. Contrac Blox and Contrac Place paks are essentially the same product just in different shapes and packaging. Contrac Place Paks are very useful for treating mice that love to tear open and gnaw through packaging and the pellets are small enough for them to hold and consume, but the product would eliminate both rats or mice. Contrac Blox work well for both rats and mice by providing them with a large gnawing surface.

QHow long will Contrac bait stay fresh in plastic bag placed in bait box?
A Once the container has been opened the Contrac has a shelf life for up to 1 year. If unopened the shelf life is up to 3 years. Bait placed inside bait stations should not be placed in plastic bags as this may deter rodents from consuming. Bait in bait stations should be replaced every 30 days or as needed for adequate rodent control.

QCan Contrac Blox Rodenticide be stored in an unheated garage?
A As a general rule we advise to store Contrac Blox Rodenticide and other rodenticides†at room temperature, out of extreme heat or cold temperatures, to keep the product fresh. The food attractants in the bait will grow stale over time, making the bait less attractive to target rodents, so baits are best used within 1 year of opening. If the garage area is cool, dry, and out of direct sunlight, then this storage should be fine.

QI understand Contract bait is now labeled for voles. What is the best exterior protocol?
A To our knowledge Contrac Blox are not labeled for Voles. Kaput Combo Mini Blox†is labeled to be used for voles and would be a better option when used in bait stations.†Voles: Place 1 block in each bait station. Situate bait stations near runways, burrow opening or plants that voles have been damaging. Check placements daily. Maintain a fresh bait supply for 15 days.†

QCan Contrac Blox Rodenticide be used to kill chipmunks?
07/02/2015 Andrew from Brockville, Ontario
QHow lethal is Contrac Blox if injested by a canine?
Just wondering if my math is right each blox contains about 1.4mg of Bromadiolone? and bromadiolone is lethal at 10mg per 1 kg body weight? so a 10kg dog would need to eat roughly 70 blox to be fatal? 0.005% of (28 grams) = 1.4 milligrams
AEach blox of Contrac is 28 grams which equal 2800mg. If your pet ate an actual blox, I wouldn't take the chance of figuring it out because the minimum amount could be lethal. It would be best to take your pet to the vet and have him/her take a look and/or administer the antidote which is Vitamin K1.
QWould an anticoagulant rodenticide kill an insect?
AIt is a poison so if it is injested, it is likely to harm whatever is injesting it.

QIf I get Contrac Blox, can u tell me if the mice or rats will die in walls or will they go outside to die?
I live in an apartment and would like to know what I'm facing here. Place is infested!
ARodents that eat the ContracBlox will not neccessarily go outside to die. There is a high possibility they will die indoors and then you will be dealing with a very foul odor for atleast a few weeks. We would recommend trapping rodents indoors using snap traps or glueboards. Trapping eliminates odor problems by allowing you to dispose of the carcass. Please read over our article regarding eliminating rodents indoors.

QAllergy Reactions to Smelling Contrac Bait Blox
I understand the Contrac bait blocks do not give off a vapor, correct? Is it still possible for the odors from the bait when placed into an attic to weep through drywall and cause a reaction to a child (living in a room below the attic) who is highly allergic to various foods?
AContrac Blox Rodenticide do not emit any type of vapor. This product should not cause a reaction to a child unless they come in direct contact with it. Contrac Blox should be placed in tamper resistant bait stations. It will pose no threat to humans if it is used as directed.
QInsects eating Contrac Blox Rodenticide
I have Contrac Blox Rodenticide inside Protecta Evo Ambush bait stations, and it appears that insects are eating the bait. I put these out last year, and I didn't notice any signs of insects eating the bait at that time (I change the bait every 4 months). Recently, all of the bait was gone, and I replaced it and rechecked the next week to find them covered in insects. Any ideas/suggestions?
AInsects are trying to fatten up for the winter. It is not uncommon for insects to be more attracted to rodent bait like Contrac. We recommend to sprinkle Niban Bait around the outside perimeter of the bait station to keep the insects out.
