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: AK
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.
Contrac Rodent Place Packs
By R. on December 28, 2012
seems to be working - hard to tell in my situation given that they are outdoors in a public place difficult to put poison in.
By Tim on September 29, 2012
Started using Contrac after a few weeks of using another poison. Something is eating the bait but I have not seen any dead rats. I saw some dead rats after using the other stuff. Whatever is eating the Contrac is spilling 1/2 of it and not finishing the whole bag. Not sure if it is doing the job but I have not seen any rats around. Maybe some mice are eating it too.
By Mr on May 24, 2012
Before I used these packs at my storage units I took a few packs home to solve the rat problem I was having there! The first night I put the packs out they were gone the next day! A couple days later I had two dead rats on my lawn! That was proof enough to me that these packs work! Before I rent out a unit to my customers I put one pack in each one and I'm sure I wont have either a rat or a mouse problem! Thanks Contrac Rodent Place Packs!
By Michelle on March 19, 2012
We have been using this product for about 3 months along with sticky traps that I ordered from you. So far we only caught 2 mice on sticky traps and I smelt 1 that died. The mice I have must be robo mice because they eat the poison and poop it out. I can tell the difference between the ones who ate it and the ones that did not. This stuff must taste good because they eat it all and come back for more.
Mouse' es out of control
By Phil on November 2, 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.

Not worth it.
By Karen on October 3, 2011
I've had the packets out for a month now, they haven't been touched. Called to see if I could return the ones that I haven't used yet. Won't let me because I opened the box to try them, so now I'm stuck with 100 some packets that don't work. Won't ever buy again.
Gets the job done
By Sherry on August 11, 2011
Item arrived in the mail very quick. I had been using the old fashioned traps and they work good, but i had to deal with dead rats. Gross. When I got these I put them on the back porch and the first night nothing happened, the second night they were chewing into the packages. I opened the packages and dumped little piles where I knew the rats like to hang out. 4 Days later they stopped eating the rat poison, they were dead. Nothing ate any poison for about a week, then for 2 nights the poison was eaten again and now nothing. It works withing 2 to 4 days and I do not have to deal with dead rats.

Works on Rats, NOT Mice
By Jay on June 23, 2011
I purchased this product to take to the Philippines. It appears to work ok with Rats but NOT mice. I see that many people state in the comments here that it works on rats but only 2 I think mention mice. My review is primary because it does not work on mice for me. I put out about 30 packs (unopened) over a 2 week period and many of the packs were opened and partially eaten by rats. About 10 of the packets were taken unopened to what was probably a nesting area under a woodpile, but the woodpile was removed and the packets recovered. HOWEVER, there is at least 1 persistent mouse which I have seen every evening in the house and which I know for sure has at least opened one of the packets that I put out. I can not say for sure whether or not it has actually eaten any of the poison however. It completely ignores the bait now. I do not believe there are several mice as I have been able to watch this same mouse go through it's routine every night for 2 weeks and this poison does not work for it. I will now purchase a standard wood/spring mouse trap and use the old trusted peanut butter for bait and I am sure I will eliminate this rodent. Only if I see another will I believe there was more than one stray mouse in the house. In summary, appears to work for rats but not mice, at least whatever species of rats and mice are here in this area of the Philippines.

This is a fantastic product. Keeps the mice population to nearly zero and we live in the country. And, it was a good price and seamless purchase with this supplier.

We put out the food/poison and within days the guests dined. They will not be coming down for breakfast. Enough said.

October 1, 2009Fina asked:
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.
December 30, 2011Ed from Gallatin, Tn 37066 asked:
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.
November 3, 2010D. asked:
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.

QWill Contrac Rodent Place Packs kill wild birds if eaten?
October 27, 2011Carl from Port Orchard, Wa. asked:
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.
July 11, 2011Ryan asked:
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.
October 8, 2011Ric from Concord, Ca asked:
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.
February 20, 2014Sherie from Nc asked:
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).
October 25, 2011Nancy from Kansas City, Ks asked:
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.
