Is the packaging plastic or paper on the Fastrac Place Paks?

I am looking for something that will be bio-degradable. If these packages are not biodegradable, do you have a product that comes in biodegradable packages? We are using it in a poultry manure pit (no chickens have access to it) and we can't have plastic in the manure.


The packets are made of a wax coated paper. We spoke to the manufacturer (Bell Labs) to ask their advice on your situation. They said that they are not sure how well these packets would degrade under these conditions. They suggested opening the packs and sprinkling around the manure piles (must be an area that is completely inaccessible to non-target animals and people) or using bait in tamper resistant bait stations. All of the place paks on our site are made by Bell Labs, so they contain the same wax coated paper.
