How often should you replace the bait in these stations with fresh bait?

Answer:

How often the bait should be replaced depends on how much mouse activity there is around.  You should check the Protecta RTU stations daily to start with to see if they are eating all of the bait in a day.  The key to control is to keep enough bait in the station to supply the population around the structure.  The goal is to not have it be empty when mice go inside to look for food.  You may find that you have to replace the bait daily at first but after the population dwindles you will have to add bait much less frequently (1 timer per week or even 1 x per month). Bait should also be replaced if it is insect infested or moldy.
