DESCRIPTION: Contrac is a single feeding anticoagulant bait in pellet form that has superior acceptance by Mice and Rats. It is a pellatized bait made with an advanced formulation process that produces a fresher, better compressed pellet for improved weatherablity. Contrac contains Bromadiolone, which is less toxic to non-target animals in primary and secondary poisoning than other chemicals.
USE: Simply Contrac place packs down where rodents travel. Rodent will gnaw through pack and ingest poison.
NOT FOR SALE IN: CA
Though rodents may consume a lethal dose in one feeding, bait shyness is not a problem because mortality occurs a few days after consumption. An antidote, Vitamin K1, is readily available and there is a time factor for treatment.
Contrac are colored blue and authorized for use in federally inspected meat and poultry plants.
SELECTION OF TREATMENT AREAS: Determine areas where rats or mice will most likely find and consume the bait. Generally, these 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. Protect bait from rain or snow. Remove as much alternative food as possible.
RATS: Apply 3 to 16 ounces of bait (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.
HOUSE MICE: Apply 1/4 to 1/2 oz. (1-2 level tablespoons) of bait per placement at 8- to 12- foot intervals. Larger placements (up to 2 oz.) 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.

Thank you for the Contrac rat packs. I like to put them under the house and other places also. They kill the rats and don't leave a bad smell. It works really well.

I received the shipment in less than a week. Threw the unopened packs around my basement and a few days later went downstairs to see if the rats were eating the poison. To my surprise, some of the bags were gone entirely! Most were opened with some or a large portion of the pellets missing. I think my huge rat problem is just about gone! I highly recommend this product and the company.

Mouse' es out of control
By Phil in Bemidji, MN on 11/02/2011
I was feeding mice from a 5 gallon pail of poison I got from a store here in Minnesota and it did not do one bit of good. I friend in Chicago sent some of your contrac rodent packs, 7 to be exact and it about wiped out all mice in my buildings. I just bought the 192 box or what ever size it is you sell and thank you for solving my problem.
By Patricia in Trenton, NJ 08629 on 06/26/2017
CONTRAC works! Those pests were GONE IN AN INSTANT! NO MORE MICE ! had placed the CONTRAC packet out ONLY ONCE!...IT WORKS! Thank you.
I've been using this product for years.
By Bob in firstname.lastname@example.org on 05/13/2017
I've been using this product for years. Works great. Just used it at a rental preparing to rent. I seen mouse droppings in a couple kitchen drawers so I dropped a bag per draw and over where there was a gap at a baseboard. Both bags were chewed open the next day. I heard also what sounded like scraping under and in the back of the kitchen sink. I pored the product using latex gloves down a gap there. I then on the third day placed new bags at the same 3 locations and one were I pored the product in a gap. After 2 more days there was no damage to the new bags. I sealed both gap locations. I also heard something run when I was inspecting the attic so I tossed about 6 bags through the attic area. Great product.
By Jas in Wichita Falls, TX on 03/29/2017
Product works well. Order arrived promptly and as stated.
This stuff works!
By Christine in Sparta, NJ on 01/22/2017
We were really infested with mice this year. I tried an exterminator, but all they did was lay down bait and mousetraps. I needed to get RID of them! So I purchased this item. I cannot believe how much came, but it truly must be 174 packs! I threw them down in both of our attics and utility room, behind appliances, etc. I have not seen or heard any signs of live mice since then. I found one dead in my utility sink (sad) and we could smell one inside the wall behind a closet. Fortunately the smell is now gone. All is well, and I hope we are through!

Mice ignored it. I got a box of this, and a bucket of Havoc bait. I put both products around the outside of the property. Mice ignored this and attacked the Havoc. Great shipping from this site, though. No complaints with the site.

Get the blox
By Greg in Acton, MA on 08/12/2016
These work, but I would highly recommend the blox form. 1. You have to go recover the packs 2. If mice don't eat them all, they leave a mess of poison pellets you have to clean up. 3. You can't responsibly put them in a bait station because opened poison will fall out of the station. I've been taking down soffit vents to put poison and traps in the attic. I'm switching to blox so I don't spill poison all over myself.
By David in Upper Falls MD 21156 on 02/19/2016
I found this product on many sites, however Do My Own was the most inexpensive site, and this item shipped extremely fast, I was pleasantly surprised

Not sure they're working yet
By Kim in Hobart, WA on 02/16/2016
I placed the product in the crawlspace, where most of my mouse problems exist, about a week ago. Have checked a few times and doesn't look like any of the bags have been chewed on yet. At least, not the ones I can easily access. I'm not ready to call these a failure as I don't think there's been enough time, so I gave a "middle" grade.

This product has been very effective. I have winter field mice and it has done the trick.

QAre Contrac Place Packs poisonous to dogs and cats?
A neighborhood dog ate some Contrac Place Packs. We are trying to call and my bug people aren't answering. Is this poisonous to dogs?
AContrac can make a pet sick, but every veterinarian has the antidote. Contrac is actually a good product if a pet gets into it because the antidote is vitamin K and easily accessible. You should definitely call your vet immediately and probably have the dog looked at just to be safe.
QIs it recommended to open the Contrac Rodent Place Packs or leave them closed?
I have the Contrac Rodent Place Packs, and I have read all the instructions for use. I'm just not sure where it says to open the packs or not. I have NOT opened them, but I've placed them closed in cupboards and closets today.
AYou can use the packs closed or open. In most cases, you will use the Contrac Rodent Place Pack closed and let the mice or rats chew through the wrapper. If you were directly treating a rodent burrow, you would open the pack and just place the pellets into the burrow to avoid having the rodent throw the pack out.

QCan I get the Contrac Rodenticide in a smaller quantity, perhaps 50?
I don't need this large a quantity (250?). I am an individual and I am afraid that the shelf life might expire before I could use them all.
AUnfortunately due to new rodent laws that were passed in June of 2011, certain anticoagulants can no longer be sold in smaller quantities. They have to be sold in 8 or 16 pound increments. This is a regulation passed by the EPA and has nothing to do with us.

QAnd if I put out poison it will not make them want to chew more water pipes? correct? I did trap a large field mouse with very long teeth, looked like he could not have closed his mouth.
A The size of teeth will vary from mouse to mouse, just like our teeth are all unique.There are four basic steps to eradicating mice. 1.) INSPECTION Use enough traps to eliminate the house mice quickly. Traps should be placed flush with walls in areas of highest travel (as determined by Inspection).
Mice may live alone or in groups. In order to assess the severity of the problem and to get a better idea of where to bait and trap, you will first need to perform a thorough inspection of the premises. What you'll want to look for are any signs that mice are present, including: droppings, tracks, gnaw marks, urine stains, live or dead mice, and mouse sounds. Take note of where the highest concentration of signs are found so that you can concentrate further preventative and control measures in those areas.
Sanitation is probably the most important measure of prevention and control in combating any pest or rodent problem. While good sanitation will not eliminate hosue mice, poor sanitation will certainly attract them and allow them to thrive in great numbers. Remember that the house mouse must have access to a ready supply of food, water, and nesting materials to thrive. Sanitation measures should focus primarily on reducing these stores. To reduce house mouse populations, try the following sanitation measures:
Mice can enter homes and other structures through openings as small as ¼ inch. They may also enter through ill-fitted doors, windows, or screens, and air vents that are not in sound or working order. While you will not reasonably be able to compensate for every possible entry, you can greatly reduce the ease of entry for mice (and thereby, reduce the population size) by taking the following measures:
4) POPULATION REDUCTION
While you are preventing future mouse population growth through inspection, sanitation, and exclusion, you will also want to begin working towards elimination of the population that is already present through trapping and baiting.
The size of teeth will vary from mouse to mouse, just like our teeth are all unique.There are four basic steps to eradicating mice.
Use enough traps to eliminate the house mice quickly. Traps should be placed flush with walls in areas of highest travel (as determined by Inspection).

QI have seen 2 mice within the past 6 months and have purchased Contrac place packs from you. They worked...
on the first mouse, but I saw another one last night and have put more Contrac out. Can you tell me what more an exterminator might be able to do? I just don't want to pay a big price for nothing. Thank you.
AContrac Rodent Place Packs can only kill the mice as they are attracted to the bait but it will not stop them from coming indoors in the first place. A reputable pest control operator would find ways to exclude mice from your home and this is a job you could potentially do yourself. Here is a step by step guide that will explain how to exclude rodents from your home: How to Rodent Proof Your Home. Most pest control operators will also supply tamper resistant mouse bait stations with a high quality bait around the exterior of your home to kill the mice before they try to find a way indoors, this too is something you can do yourself.
QJust wondering, why you are not following the EPA's new guidelines regarding rodenticides and consumer packaging. These were set into place June 4, 2011.
AAll companies that sell rodent baits are allowed to sell their complete inventories. After the inventory with the old labels have been spent, the new guidelines will be followed. This was written into the EPA guidelines. We always follow current guidelines and laws that are in place by the EPA.

QIs strychnine grain for rats available?
AWe are not familiar with strychnine grain but we can tell you that as of this year the EPA has banned many rodent control products and severely restricted others so you may have problems finding products that are old favorites. We do carry a wide variety of rat baits which you can find by looking here: RAT BAIT.
QWill Contrac Rodent Place Packs kill wild birds if eaten?
10/08/2011 Ric from Concord, Ca
QWill birds eat Contrac?
I'm putting it in a bait station but I'm worried that birds could walk in.
AWe have never heard of birds going inside rodent stations and we have never read that it was an issue. Since Contrac comes in a hard bait form it would be unlikely that even if birds did get into the station they would not find the bait very appealing and/or they would not be able to eat it easily since they are made for the teeth of a rodent, and birds do not have teeth.

QDo you have a version of Contrac with a bittering agent?
A friend of mine works for a pest control specialist and recommended using contrac with a bittering agent so if my cat does get a mouse that has eaten poison, it would be highly unlikely to try to eat it.
AContrac Rodent Place Packs do not contain a bittering agent. Gladiator All Weather Blox contain a bittering agent. Gladiator is just as effective as Contrac and will kill with in 1-2 days after consumption.

QHow does Quintox affect secondary pets, such as if a cat or dog caught the poisoned rat?
Is Quintox safer to use around domesticated animals?
A Quintox has been discontinued by the manufacturer and it can be tox to a pet if they ingest the product. An animal usually doesn't eat a dead rodent; they usually play with it. We would recommend Contrac Rodent Place Packs in its place. It is not only a great product, but you can readily find Vitamin K1 at your local vet in case your pet ingests the product.
