Securing 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?
Raccoons 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.
