More rats than before.

A few months ago I noticed some rat activity around my house, so I bought and installed a few Protecta bait stations and a pail of Final blox and place them around the house. It did the trick and soon I noticed no more rats. Just to be on the safe side, since then I've been replenishing the stations with fresh bait from time to time. To my surprise, over the last few nights, I started seeing rats again. This morning I checked the bait stations and they were all empty. There were 3 stations with 8 blox inside each, so I now wonder how come they are all eaten: a) either it takes many days for the bait to kill the rats so they keep coming back and eat what has left, or b) there are many, many of them to eat all those blox. So, my question is - is it good idea at all to have these blox in the bait stations all the time. Could they actually attract rats. Would one rat bring others to the feast? I know, they will eventually die, but they can also multiply in vicinity while still alive. Also, how many of these blox are sufficient to kill a rat. Thank you in advance.


 Final Blox Rodenticide is a single feed kill. If the the bait is over a year old it could be less effective. Often times if there is an suitable environment for them to live in they will keep thriving. For example, if there is a body of water of chicken coups next door not maintained, more and more families od rats/mice will keep coming for the bait.
