How do you bait the rodent boxes with the JT Eaton Answer Chipmunk Bait?

How many bait pouches do I put inside of the bait box, on each side? How often should I check the boxes? When refilling bait boxes do I wash anything? Do human hands (scent) detour chipmunks from reentry?


You can place as many bait pouches as you like on the rods inside the stations.  Typically though you would start with 2 on each side.  Just slide the entire pouch onto the rod, wrapper and everything.  The chipmunks will chew through the wrapping.  How often the bait should be replaced depends on how much chipmunk activity there is around.  You should check the stations daily to start with to see if they are eating all of the bait in a day.  The key to control is to keep enough bait in the station to supply the population around the house.  The goal is to not have it be empty when chipmunks go inside to look for food.  You may find that you have to replace the bait daily, or that you want to add 3 or 4 pouches per side if they are eating through 2 very quickly.  Human scent will not deter them from going into the station since they hang around the yard and eat other things that humans have touched all of the time, but other scents like cigarette smoke or cleaning chemicals will deter them so it is advised to wear gloves when working with the stations.  If you do have any further questions, please do not hesitate to call us at 866-581-7378.
