Mouse Bait Station works every time!
By Patty on December 8, 2010
As a landlord our number 1 nuisance call is mice. At the first sign of a dropping we use the bait box under the kitchen and bath sinks, under the stove and in the pantry. We very rarely see a dead mouse and in about a week we do not see any more droppings either. Boxes are locked for safety and bait does not smell - you are not "catching" the mice, just sending them outside in search of water where they die. Bait is a cube that fits tightly in the box. This system does what it is supposed to...it gets rid of mice in your house!

Awesome product for landlords!
By Eric on April 25, 2011
I am a landlord with several units. I use this station only in my properties. It is great because you need a key to open it so people (kids especially) can not open it up or tamper with it. In addition the mice love congregating here and feasting on the Contrac bait I use. Contrac is amazing stuff.

Finally....something that works
By Ron on August 7, 2011
Living next to a wooded area, voles, moles and mice have been a constant pain in the behind. Got so bad I once replaced the lawn to get rid of them and their tunnel network. Years of peanut pellets, peanut butter, warafrin bait, traps, smoke bombs, and water hoses have finally come to an end. The pesky critters thumbed their pointy little snouts at me for the last time...party over!! In under two weeks with Final Blox my flower and mulch beds are no longer being aerated by voles. The fence line is no longer a living highway of tunnels and holes. The dinner party and a yard full of holes is over. Final Blox is as bad as it can get. FB and bait stations are the black box restaurant of death, their last meal! Very pleased with the quick results of the product and the customer service and timeliness of the delivery, 3 days!! Thank you, FB & DMOPC.

Protecta Bait Station
By Dan on May 16, 2011
Excellent product. Needed something to help keep the dog from eating the bait and to a lesser extent the pesky squirrels. Well made, easy to open with the supplied key, secure. 4 of the stations for $19 is a great price, shipping was reasonable (especially compared to Ace Hardware who wanted $15 to ship something that weighs 8 ounces!?!?!?) Anyway, great product, great company.

The mouse bait stations
By Bob on January 26, 2012
We live here in Massachsuetts and are USA citizens. We also own a house in Nova Scotia which is furnished and ready for use. In the past, for several years, we had a lot of trouble with mice in that house. We bougth local hardware traps and bait repeateadly, but every time we went up, we found mouse tracks, empty traps, and the bait rolled up into balls and hidden here and there among dish towels, bedding, or pots and pans. A professional exterminator here in Massachusetts told me about these stations. Now we find no traces of mice when we go up, and we feel that our bedding and linens are clean and safe for us. The mice have nibbled now and then inside the stations, but there is no other evidence. No tracks any more! Also, I feel this is so much cleaner and easier for us than to handle dead mice hanging from a trap and buying new traps all the time. .

Not really a review...just a word about outdoor baiting. I have racoons REMOVING bait stations. Gone. Vanished. Have built my own stations out of scrap cedar and fastened them down.
By Don on December 2, 2014
These little bait stations work great. And you're not limited to any one particular bait that you use. I've used both the recommended bait and some other that I happened to have. Safe to use most anywhere.
This is a product that works !!
By Martin on October 29, 2014
We've had trouble with mice for the last few years, tried all store items, snap traps, glue traps, bait, etc. Mice avoid these, also they ate the peanut butter off my snap traps! With Contrac and the bait stations, I set them out, in areas where I saw the mice, and also the droppings. Under stove, pantry, in kitchen. After one week, I haven't see one dropping, and the bait has been nibbled on. Plus they must be going outside, because I don't smell that dead mouse odor. Company is great to work with, fast delivery, and the mouse stations are great, safe, easy to open, and above all, with Contrac, they WORK!
Works as expected
By Brett on November 7, 2013

This is for mice.
By Donald on February 13, 2013
Bought 12 because of the price break,only needed 6. Gifting a few to some friends. I bought these with the FINAL BLOX to keep my chickens away from the bait. My chickens love to hide in my garage when I forget to close it, and try and eat anything they can find. Keeps them safe and makes me feel alot better about letting them free range wherever they feel like going. These ARE TOO SMALL to let a chipmunk or squirrel eat out of them. So Mouse Bait Station is exactly what they are for. BUY AN EXTRA KEY to give to friends with their stations...

By Gary on January 10, 2013
I am a professional exterminator, I use DoMyOwnPestControl from time to time. They are very professional, and very fast in getting your order to you. I would highly recommend them as the go to website for all your pest control needs. Keep up the good work, and thank you....
By Thea on November 28, 2012
within 2-3 days started seeing dead mice, we found maybe 1/2 dozen dead, but think many left the house after feeling sick from poison. It's been 3-4 weeks since we started putting bait down and has probably been over a week since we've seen a mouse.

I have attached this bait station to about a 2 inch by 6 inch by 4 inch stone paver with construction adhesive right on one edge so it will be able to sit right next to the foundation. We have landscaping rocks around our house where I have recessed the pavers into the rocks around the foundation so the edge of it and the bait station are oriented next to the foundation where the mice travel. I have them placed about every 15 feet or so. The paver keeps the bait station in place and is level with the top of the rocks.

Product is as described and shipped fast. Purchasing four is cheaper than only purchasing three due to the discount.

AThe Protecta RTU Mouse Bait Station is a small, sturdy bait station that can be used indoors and outdoors with no problem.
January 15, 2011Joe asked:
QWhat should I do if my dog chews on the Protecta RTU Mouse Bait Station but doesn't get it open?
AWe would recommend relocating the Protecta RTU bait station in an area that is not as accessible to your animals to avoid any issues in the future. Unless the openings are chewed shut or the station will not close, there is no reason to replace the station.

QDo Mice Build a Resistance to the poison in Place Packs and or Bait Blocks?
It seems like an annual occurrence where the mice come back every year when the weather gets cold. This time, I am having a very difficult time. They are ignoring the packets, they are wary of the traps. I used different traps with cereal as bait held in place with peanut butter. Also used an electronic trap. Got 8 in traps so far. And 2 bait blocks are being eaten. The ones caught in traps were small maybe juveniles and there are 2 different size droppings. I think the Mommy and Daddy are teaching the kids what to avoid.
AThere are some instances when rodents can be resistant to a certain active ingredient in a bait and there may be instances where the rodents will avoid the bait all together (bait is old or spoiled, too many alternate food sources are available). We recommend changing to a bait with a different active ingredient so that you will have fresh bait and you can avoid any issues with resistance. We also recommend you inspect your home very carefully and seal up any holes you can so you can exclude the mice from entering your home in the future. You should also purchase tamper resistant bait stations (with a high quality bait) to use around the perimeter of your home so you can eliminate the mice outdoors before they have a chance to look for a way in. Please take a moment to read our article Rodent Proofing for Fall to learn more about excluding rodents from your home.
