How To Use the Protecta LP Rat Bait Station
DESCRIPTION: The Protecta LP rat bait station is a triangular shaped bait station that fits in corners and along walls where rodents travel. Its “Low Profile” makes it ideal to use indoors under pallets and in other tight baiting locations. The Protecta LP rat bait station locks automatically when closed and uses a special 2-prong key to open. One key is included with each case. Extra keys are available for purchase.
Dimensions: 13" across by 9" Deep by 3 and 3/8" High
USE: Place station near baseboards, corners, or in spaces where rodents are likely to travel. Rodents will enter stations out of curiosity, and the presence of rodenticide baits placed inside the station. Protecta stations do not come with baits. We recommend purchasing Contrac Blox Rodenticide baits for use in the Protecta stations.

Great value - worked perfect!
By David in Boston, MA on 07/01/2011
I bought a three pack of the Protecta LP traps to deal with a chipmunk problem around my New England colonial house, and it worked perfect. I used to place the Contrac Blocks around the house, but the chipmunks would just take them back to their holes and store them there. With the Protecta LP bait station, there is a steel rod that holds the bait in place and the chipmunks have no chance of removing the bait. The opening is large enough to fit a squirel or chipmunk, but will keep out rabbits and dogs/cats. Great buy - I would recomend buying the Contrac blocks and the 3 pack of Protecta bait stations as a package - as you will get a better price.

Who's the professional now?!
By Myron in Vashon Island, WA on 05/03/2013
I have the same bait stations and rat bait the professionals use without the monthly fees. I'm laughing all the way to the bank. The rats don't think it's funny...

Simply the best!
By T. in West Chester, PA on 08/10/2010
I had several bait stations that I paid a small fortune for from my bug guy. I figured there had to be a better way to get them at a better price. Not just better.... these were half the price!!! And I got free shipping... and I had them faster than my local bug guy got my first ones to me! Thumbs up all around to Do My Own Pest Control!!!

No mice or rats!
By Fred in Austin, Tx on 08/20/2011
Excellent product, very effective as long as you continually check and replace bait. Wish the key had a a handle as it is awkward to handle.

This bait station is vary good if you have raccoons by your house because their arms cannot reach inside and grab the bait like a lot of the other bait stations...So I highly recommended this type... The only bad thing about it is the hinges kinda suck but they still last for a vary long time.

Rat trap station review
By Leo in Newport Oregon on 08/16/2016
This trap seems well constructed. When it came time to load the trap with bait I found it difficult to open. No instructions were supplied for opening this trap .

I have worked in pest control and knew about this particular bait station. It is durable, safe and easy to use. Better than anything others out there.
This is a great Bait Station . . .
By Donald in Wichita Falls, Texas on 04/23/2016
This is a great Bait Station. It is low cost, low profile, and long lasting. The rats love it and so do I. The lid opens easily when the correct key is used. It stays put and does not float away when it rains. My only complaint is that it does not hold as much bait as it could. It only holds three chunks. I place mine horizontally, but they can be placed vertically if you prefer. You just use a different wire holder, which is supplied in an accessory bag with each unit that you purchase. I have six around my house. They are placed where the water, gas and air conditioning lines enter the house, one near the dumpster (this one is the most popular with the "guests") and two by the cars in the driveway. I highly recommend this bait station!

Strong bait stations used in chicken coop
By Barb in Orange, VA on 02/21/2016
The stations are made of heavy plastic and lock securely. The vertical bait holders are in a separate bag. I installed 4 in each station and added a Tomcat bait chunk on each one. I didn't want to remove the horizontal bait holder (and possibly lose it), so I fiddled with it and found it will still snap in place and keep the horizontal chunks from spinning. I used two of these in a chicken coop that was overrun by rats that dug through heavy clay under the apron of my coop. The tunnels were causing structural damage because they tunneled under weight-bearing blocks. I installed rat-proof feeders and wanted to put out poison at the same time because rats will chew on the chickens' feet if they don't have anything else to eat. Even though the entry hole is large enough for a chicken head, the bait is out of sight and reach. I placed the other stations in the feed shed and garage. The stations have been in place for just over two weeks and we've noticed this past week that the tunnel entrances in the coop aren't active any more and are being filled in by the chickens scratching the dirt. Even better, no chickens accessed the bait. We're even getting a 3-4 more eggs a day. I'm assuming the rats were stressing the chickens, which reduces egg output.

By Ronnie in Cozad on 10/27/2015
Product is ok, but Domyownpestcontrol is not. But Domyownpestcontrol only supply one key for my 3 Protecta LP Bait Station. SO they can make alot more money from you when you have to buy extra keys. Should be one key per Bait Station, just like if you was buying one at a time.
Thank you for your feedback. Please note that the manufacturer only supplies one key per every 6 stations. We are not trying to make extra money, we actually have to pay for every extra key. Please let us know if you have any questions about your order or our company. We are always happy to help in any way possible. We appreciate your business!

Bait station better than expected. Pic shows vertical bait presentation, but horizontal bar is included as well. Choices are good. For those that don't know: stations can be opened using two flat screwdrivers to pop up one side at a time.

Ask a Question
QShould the rodent bait be placed vertically or horizontally? Why would one be preferable over the other?
ARods in the bait stations should be used based on the situation. Horizontal rods should be used if the station has a chance of getting water or rain inside the station. By placing the bait on a horizontal rod, it keeps the bait from touching the bottom of the station and keeps it dry and prevents it from getting moldy. If you are in a very hot environment and the stations may be in direct sunlight, then you should place the bait on vertical rods. Since rodent bait is made from food that attracts the rodents, they can melt in hot temperatures. Placing the bait on vertical rods keeps the bait on the rod for longer if they melt.
QWhat is the difference between the Protecta Rat Sidekick and LP bait stations?
Are there features that make a difference in which one you buy since they are roughly the same price?
A The Protecta LP is a low profile station that is only 3 3/8" inches tall, which allows it to be placed under pallets, bushes, furniture and other objects. The Protecta LP will hold 3 bait blocks on your choice of vertical or horizontal rods (both types of rods come with the station). The Protecta Sidekick is made from a slightly thinner plastic and is 4 1/2" tall. The Sidekick will hold up to 8 bait blocks and comes with horizontal rods. The Sidekick also has the advantage of being able to hold the Trapper T-Rex rat snap trap. Both stations are tamper resistant and lock with a key.

QCan squirrels enter the rat bait stations?
I have a rat that has discovered my yard and like to rummage under my bird feeder. I want to get rid of the rat but not the squirrels. I have already tried the snap trap and killed a squirrel and a chipmunk unintentionally.
AYes, it is possible that a smaller squirrel can fit in the Protecta LP rat bait stations. Since squirrels and rats are similar sized, there are not really any options that will target only rats and not squirrels other than a live catch trap so if you happen to catch the squirrel you can let it go.

QDoes this station trap the rat?
Does this station trap the rat, or does it allow the poisoned rat to go out into the environment to poison wildlife?
AThe Protecta LP Rat Bait Stations do not trap the rat. If it did there would be no reason to use the poison bait, instead it would just contain a snap trap. The job of the Protecta LP Rat Bait Station is to protect non-target animals form eating the poison bait. Other animals would have to consume several poisoned rats to be effected by the bait that was consumed by the rodents. You should remove and dispose of any rodent carcases that are found.
01/25/2012 Stephanie from Kenedy
QHow much space should I put between each Protecta LP Station?
AThere is not a set formula for how far apart the Protecta LP stations should be as the size of the rodent infestation and the amount of entrances/exits will vary from structure to structure. We recommend you place stations near doors or windows where rodents can gain access to the structure and most pros also place one station at each corner of the structure.

QIs there an anchoring system for the Protecta LP Rat Bait Station?
AWe do carry two acnchoring systems that will work with the Protecta LP Rat Bait Stations. We carry the Protecta Load-N-Lock Anchoring System - Protecta LP and the Bait Station Anchors for Rodent Stations (for use in soil only).
10/13/2015 Edwin from Austin
QDo the Protecta LP Rat Bait Stations come with a key?
A One Protecta Key is included with each order so whether you order one station or 3 stations you get 1 key.†We do sell Protecta Keys separately if you would like more than one.

QWhat is the best material to attach a Protecta LP Rat Bait Station onto a concrete floor?
What is the best material to attach a bait station onto a concrete floor?
AMost folks use Liquid Nails caulk adhesive to permanently attach the stations to concrete patio blocks. In most cases you do not want to attach the stations to the floor in case you later need to move them or pick them up to clean them but if you decide you do in fact want to attach them to the floor the same adhesive should work well.
