How does the Protecta RTU Mouse Bait Station work?
Is it a trap where the mice cannot escape? Do they eat the bait and die inside for easy cleanup?
The Protecta RTU Mouse Bait Station is a tamper resistant container that will keep non-target animals from consuming the poison bait. The Protecta RTU does not trap the mouse in any way, the mouse enters, eats the bait and is free to exit. If you would like a covered box that the mouse enters and cannot leave, you do have a couple of options. You can use the Victor Kill and Seal Mouse Trap Model 265. This is a small container that the mouse will enter, be killed and contained. The other option would be to purchase a Protecta Mouse Bait Station and place a wooden snap trap or a Mini-T Rex snap trap inside. With either of these options you would not need to use a poison bait as the mouse will be killed anyway. You can bait the traps with peanut butter (not recommended for the Mini-T Rex), pieces of cereal, bits of cotton or other baits.
