Insects eating Contrac Blox Rodenticide

I have Contrac Blox Rodenticide inside Protecta Evo Ambush bait stations, and it appears that insects are eating the bait. I put these out last year, and I didn't notice any signs of insects eating the bait at that time (I change the bait every 4 months). Recently, all of the bait was gone, and I replaced it and rechecked the next week to find them covered in insects. Any ideas/suggestions?


Insects are trying to fatten up for the winter. It is not uncommon for insects to be more attracted to rodent bait like Contrac. We recommend to sprinkle Niban Bait around the outside perimeter of the bait station to keep the insects out.
