Ditrac gets unsurpassed rodent acceptance and control. The multiple edges appeal to a rodent's desire to gnaw and each block is made with food-grade ingredients and small amounts of paraffin for a highly palatable bait. Ditrac works well in any condition -- wet or dry, indoors or out. A hole in the center of each block allows it to be placed on bait securing rods in bait stations, or nail or wire it in place.
|Active Ingredient:||Diphacinone 0.005%|
|Target pests:||Rats and Mice|
|Manufactured By:||Bell Labs|
Ditrac Blox are especially well suited for damp or moist environments where other baits would degrade or spoil, such as riverbanks, gullies, irrigation ditches, sewers, garbage dumps and landfills. Ditrac blox work equally well in dry environments too!
Ditrac Blox contain the active ingredient, Diphacinone (an anticoagulant), which kills rats and mice with less chemical than many other anticoagulants. As with all rodent baits, rodents must be attracted to the bait in order to consume the required amount of poison. Ditrac Blox include food grade ingredients and they are formed into a "X" shape providing rats and mice with plenty of gnawing edges as well as a tasty food source.
Ditrac has a readily available antidote (Vitamin K1) in case of accidental igestion by non-target animals. It is also a multi-feed bait which means that rodents must feed multiple times to receive a lethal dose of the rodenticide making it safer to use in residential environments.
How do I use Ditrac Blox?
Bait blox should be placed inside of a tamper resistant bait station or out of reach of children and non-target animals. Bait placements should be made as close as possible to areas of rodent activity as possible. Bait placements should be inspected weekly and replaced if moldy or if insect activity is noticed. A constant supply of Ditrac blox should be made available in for at least 10 days.

Recommended by our local pest control guy to eliminate rats in our bird (parrot) houses. It works very well. Now using it in the chicken house & plenty of dead rats. Works better than anything Tractor Supply offers.

Worked faster than expected
By Andrew on August 21, 2012
I began to notice activity at the feeding boxes the first night. Within a couple of days carcasses were showing up. A week after treatment started the mice were gone. Great product!

I was concerned about palatability, but the first night about all the bait was eaten, again the next night, the rats have slowed down eating the bait now but every morning I have to pick up dead rats, I am pleased with this product,

feeding the mice not killing them
By Cindy on June 11, 2012
I put this out a few weeks ago and and found nothing dead. When i opened it when I recieved it it looked just kink the kind I bought from Farm and Fleet that the mice just had a party on and never died we were just feeding them .When I compared the ingreants they were they same as what we got from Farm and Fleet:-( so next time I will try the red bait or if someone out has a better one to try please let me know the mice are multiplying instead of dieing.

Ditrac All Weather Blox
By Ychan on June 15, 2012
Great product. First day I put it out around my house, the rats took only a small nibble, then blocks started to vanish. I decided to tie these blocks together with my weed eater strings which were quite tough but those rascals are like the genetically modified rats from movies, bit through the strings but did not managed to take the blocks out. Then I began to pick up "the pieces" so to speak the next day. I am still putting them out though there is less evidence of new blocks being eaten. I think I have solved my problem for the year. Thanks DoMyOwnPestControl. I used to buy those blocks off Walmart but they were pretty expensive and I am just treating the problem piecemeal. I hope I have wipe out all the generations with Ditrac without having to worry about the future generations.

I started using this stuff n no results to my disappointment, I did some research and found this takes multiple feedings, Inmy case rats didn't even touch the stuff, I'll get Brodifacoum which will be Final Blox
Effective Rat Poison
By Jim on December 7, 2012
Having a BAD problem with mice and rats. This product seems to be stopping the problem. I keep 5 or 6 blocks in several home-made bait stations and check the traps weekly. Often all the blocks are gone. So, it would appear, are the mice and rats. I am re-ordering. After checking the internet this poison seems to be the best bang for the buck.

I was advised of a delay in delivery. The product came as noted. No problems, all is well.

QWhat is the actual difference between Diphacinone (Ditrac) and the principal ingredient in Contrac?
What is the actual difference between Diphacinone (Ditrac) and the principal ingredient in Contrac? I live in the woods, and do NOT want to attact chipmunks to the bait stations. I do NOT have rats, only a steady supply of field mice who I prefer not to share the inside of my home with me. The company I have been using has gone out of business, so I can no longer purchase Ditrac from them. Would Contrac be "safer" for the chipmunk population? I'm out of Ditrac and need to start something in my bait stations very very soon..... My bait stations resemble your Protecta Rat station, but mine have 2 locks and a plastic key. Would I be better off using a station with a smaller hole? All of my stations are outdoors, but outside of the fenced area where my dogs play.
A Both Ditrac Blox and the Contrac Blox are anticoagulants but Ditrac is a multi-feed rodenticide (rodents would have to feed multiple times to build up a lethal dose) and Contrac is a single feed rodenticide (rodents usually obtain a lethal dose in just one feeding). Unfortunately there is no way to know if chipmunks would be attracted to either of the baits. We have Contrac Blox available in a 4lb pail and in an 18lb bucket and Ditrac Blox are available in an 18lb bucket. When dealing with mice the size of the bait stations is up to you. If you would feel more comfortable with a station with smaller entry holes, the Protecta Mouse Bait Station would be a great choice. These stations are tamper resistant, lock with a key and are very sturdy.

QWhy is Ditrac not available in NY but Contrac is? Which is better?
ADitrac actually is available for sale to New York. We fixed this error on our website saying it was not available. Ditrac is the slower acting of the the two (Ditrac & Contrac). Contrac blox are by far the most popular and what we sell the most of. They work great and rarely do not work.
February 9, 2013Neal from Reno asked:
QDo the blocks have a hole through them for wire hanging?
AA hole in the center of each block allows it to be placed on bait securing rods in bait stations, or nail or wire it in place.
