The stations are made well. They do allow more water from rain than I would have expected.

Same as what the big boys use!
By Herb in Fort Mill, SC. on November 8, 2010
Same kind of bait stations the large exterminating companies use for mice but you fill the stations on your schedule and for a lot less! You can pick up bait at Home Depot or Lowes.

Great product, you may want to oder more keys . . .
By Jason in Surprise, AZ on December 20, 2011
Quick delivery, great price, product no different than what the professionals install. When you order a case of 12 stations you only get one key. If you have an assistant to help reload mulitple stations, you will want to order another key.

Prompt service. Everything just as advertised. Will gladly do business with this company in the future.
Here to buy my next bucket of bait
By Jessica in North Reading, MA on November 16, 2013
Same stuff the professional guy used, but its much cheaper for me to do it myself. If you have a mouse problem, this stuff works great. Keep uncased bait far out of reach of your dog, because they like the smell too!!
Protecta Mouse Bait Stations
August 31, 2013
These are a great idea in principle. Found them difficult to open once bait (Kaput rat poison granules) was installed because of the limited handling. Key didn't work as well do to weather and digging activity by rodent. In addition, they need some method of staking into the ground. Both stations ultimately disappeared in successive days even with a large stone placed on top of. My guess is a fox frequenting my area may have carried them away seeking a dead rodent inside. Or maybe the big barn owl that perched nearby.

Great affordable bait station
By JH in NY, NY on December 26, 2012
Great inexpensive bait station option! Buy more to get a good discount.
Everything I expected
By Rtpeat in Topeka, KS on October 4, 2012
Nice small size, closes up well, holds the bait firmly, comes with labels for the outside of the box. I ordered the bait stations online and bought the bait at local farm store. Not much else to say.
Easy to use
By Jeffrey in Bend, OR on September 17, 2012
The Protecta Mouse Bait Stations are easy to use. I filled and placed a dozen of them in about 15 minutes. I checked the bait stations after a few days and found clear evidence that the mice are eating the bait, so it appears to be working. The set of 12 stations comes with one key. I wish that I had ordered a spare, in case I lose the one that I have. I picked the cheapest shipping option. I thought that I would receive the bait stations and bait in 3 to 4 days, but it took more than week, so plan ahead. There were some small loose flecks of bait in the shipping container, so be careful, when you open the box.
By Mike in New Albany, Ms on June 5, 2012
Great product to protect pets and children from coming in contact with bail. Easy to load and check. Will be ordering more.

March 22, 2011Joseph asked:
QWhat tier would the Protecta Mouse Stations be considered by the EPA?
The EPA is coming out with new rules for rodenticides called Final Risk Mitigation. All bait must be placed in tamper resistant bait stations. Tiered Bait Station Requirements for Consumer-Use Products o Tier 1 – Tamper-resistant for children and dogs; weather resistant; tested according to EPA protocols; indoor and outdoor use; o Tier 2 – Tamper-resistant for children and dogs; tested according to EPA protocols; indoor use only; o Tier 3 – Tamper-resistant for children; tested according to EPA protocols; indoor use only; and, o Tier 4 – Self-certification; packaging not reasonably anticipated to release other than small quantities of bait; resistant to opening by a child less than six years old; indoor use only; non-refillable (one-time-use only).
AThe Protecta line of stations that need a key to open, including the Protecta Mouse Stations you are asking about, are all tier 1 level bait stations. They are tamper-resistant to children and pets and can be used both indoors and outdoors.
March 7, 2010Brian asked:
QAre there any differences in the size of the openings between the Protecta Mouse and Rat Bait Stations?
If so, what are the hole sizes? I'd assume the mouse bait stations have smaller holes.
AYou are correct. The Protecta Mouse Stations have smaller holes and are meant only for mice. The Protecta Rat Bait Stations have larger holes for rats to enter, but mice could also enter if they were present. Normally, you would determine what type of rodent you have, rat or mouse, from the size of the droppings. If you are not sure, then you should get a rat size station because it could accomodate both.
July 7, 2011Pam asked:
QOnce the mouse goes into the Protecta Mouse Bait Station, can it get out again?
AMice can leave the station after they enter. The Protecta Mouse Bait Stations are tamper resistant boxes that stop non target animals and children from having access to the poison bait you place in the station. You could place a Mini T-Rex Mouse Trap in the station if you wanted to catch the mouse and protect non target animals and children from the trap.
January 2, 2012Bob from Oxford, Ct asked:
QSecuring a bait station outdoors to keep raccoons from dragging them around?
I have several large bait boxes outside and racoons are dragging the stations around and they are cleaning out the bait bloxs completely. My first question is the a way of securing the Protecta Mouser bait stations so the raccoons cant drag and knock it around? Second questions is does the bait blox kill the raccoons if the eat the poision bait blocks?
ARaccoons are much larger than mice, so yes the bait can kill a raccoon but they would have to eat a large quantity. It is a lot easier to secure rat sized stations than the smaller mouse sized stations. Other then drilling a hole through the station and securing it to a pole or structure using a chain, you can also use liquid nails and glue the station to a landscape paver. Either way should help deter raccoons from dragging the stations off.
April 3, 2013Catherine from Chaska, Mn asked:
QWhich bait station would be sized right for Voles?
AMost mouse sized bait station will allow voles to get inside. The protecta Mouse Bait Station is often the station of choice for vole control.
February 1, 2014Louie from Warm Springs Or asked:
QAfter mice eat bait and leave, is there an odor from the dead mouse in or under the house
AThere is a potential for an odor if mice die indoors. You can use a product like Bac A Zap to eliminate the odor.
July 1, 2013Anna from Burlington, Vt asked:
QIf I am putting Protecta Mouse Bait Stations around the outside of the house how many feet between them?
Around outside perimeter of house: should I put them every x number of feet? ALSO: Do the mice die in the walls if I put them indoors? I already have the odor coming through the wall, of mouse nests.
A You should place the Protecta Mouse Bait Stations 15 - 20 feet apart for best results. The reason we recommend putting the stations outdoors is to lure the mice out and to potentially die outside. There is still a possibility the mice could die indoors.

October 27, 2014Charlie from Westbury, Ny asked:
QWhen should you replace the bait? I see that it was nibbled on should I replace it with fresh bait
AWe recommend that you replace the bait in the Protecta Mouse Bait Stations if it starts to mold or if insects have started to infest it. Generally it is a good idea to replace every 40-60 days in the bait stations because rodenticides contains food based ingredients.
July 24, 2013Jim asked:
QHow many keys come with an order of 6 Protecta Mouse bait stations?
AThe manufacturer of Protecta Mouse Bait Stations does not provide us with keys, so we include one key per order. On an order of 6 stations, you will receive one key.
June 25, 2014Sue from Ohio asked:
QWill this product cause harm to my cats if they eat a mouse that has died from eating the product?
AProtecta Mouse Bait Stations are tamper resistant. If you are referring to mouse bait, the risk of secondary poisoning is very minimal. Could you tell us which rodenticide you are referring to?
