how much first strike does a rodent have to eat before it dies?

Answer:

First Strike Soft Bait Rodenticide is a 2nd generation anticoagulant rodenticide meaning that rodents are affected or killed after a single feeding of bait. 

For mice: Apply 1 pack per placement, usually 8 to 12 feet apart. Up to four packs may be needed at points of very high mouse activity. Maintain a constant supply of fresh bait for 15 days or until signs of mouse activity decrease.

For rats: Apply 12 to 48 packs per placement, usually spaced 15 to 30 feet apart. Maintain a constant supply of fresh bait for 10 days or until signs of rat activity decrease.
