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 11/08/2010
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 12/20/2011
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.

Happy for the money
By Terry in St paul MN on 07/01/2010
I had them out for approximately one week, checked them and my little friends are feeling comfortable in them having dinner. For the money they do what they are supposed to.

Here to buy my next bucket of bait
By Jessica in North Reading, MA on 11/16/2013
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!!
Looks like they will work
By Steve in Ringgold, LA on 10/20/2017
I just put them out 2 weeks ago so I won't check them for 2 more weeks. They were easy to bait, close and put out. Product seems sturdy and should last a few years easily. Before I baited the first 1 I closed it and opened it with the key to see about the correct operation. Easy enough, no worries. Works as advertised, happy with the purchase.
By Tommy in Henderson, NC on 09/01/2017
Disappointed in size of holes in bait stations. Medium size rodents cannot fit.
Protecta Mouse Bait Station
By Swatsworth in Pennsylvania on 08/29/2017
Started working within 24 hours.
Pretty good, and here's a couple of tips.
By Mark in Groton, Massachusetts on 08/01/2017
Does the job. I used loose bait rather than the blocks. Two things to watch, if using outside: 1. The access holes should be located downhill if you're on any slope so that the rain will not accumulate to any depth inside. 2. I had a larger animal turn the thing over a few times and dump out much of the bait. Maybe a squirrel, possum, skunk, or raccoon, not sure, but in any case, I will be drilling two smaller holes in the side between the access holes and putting a tether to a ground stake so I don't lose it. Maybe, if necessary, adding some holes also on the wall between the bait compartments for another tether to keep it from getting turned over. It would be nice to have flanges on the lid, with holes, to make this easy to do with a single tether across the top, anchored on both sides.
Protecta Bait Stations
By Phil in Cohasset, MA on 08/01/2017
Came as described quickly. Need to order bait separately from bait stations, that was not clear to me. Set them up and are waiting for results!
Protecta Bait stations vs TomCat
By Robert in Bellingham Wa. on 04/24/2017
I have been using TomCat bait stations and decided to try two of the Protecta stations. The TomCat is easy to open where Protecta requires a supplied key which does not open unit that easy is small and easy to misplace, but other than that Protecta works fine. I found neither worked well with the bait blocks. I purchased KAPUT and removed some blocks with great results. I only placed two blocks in each station and filled the other with Kaput. Several stations need refilling weekly with Kaput where the blocks remain untouched
Protecta Mouse Bait Station - CASE (12 stations)
By William in Portland, TN on 02/12/2017
Good product that last.
does this product really work
By Cmf in wis on 01/02/2017
these really work and worth the money. I've had mice and a small chipmunk curl up and die in the plastic mouse station. I check bait stations twice a year, and it's evident they are being used.
great bait boxes
By Dennis in Janesville, IA on 11/30/2016
These boxes are very durable and easy to use. They keep the bait in good shape regardless of the weather. This is my second order. The only downside is that I ordered 12 traps and only received one key for the traps. Should have included at least two keys.
Thank you for your comments! Rodent Bait Stations will come with 1 key per case since they will use universal keys and are designed for professionals who are often servicing dozens of the same stations daily. You can always purchase extra keys on our site, too: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/key-for-protecta-rat-and-mouse-bait-station-p-253.html

Nice bait station
By Frank in New Hampshire on 07/13/2016
The only problem is that I lost 5 traps out of 12. Some larger animal must have carried them away. I just drilled 2 1/8 inch holes next to each other on the side and slipped a tie wrap through and sunk a piece of rebar into the ground. Then I slipped the closed tie wrap over the rebar and have not had a problem with them stealing my traps.

Ask a Question
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.
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.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

QIs there a major difference in the hole size between the Mouse and Rat Protecta stations?
If possible, an I get the dimensions for the two. I'm not sure if these buildings have rats or mice.
A There is quite a difference. The Protecta Mouse Bait Station entry is 1 inch in diameter, while the Protecta Rat is 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Please see our Rat Pest Guide and our Mouse Pest Guide for assistance with identifying the rodent pests you have. When in doubt, rat bait stations will accommodate either rodent.

QHi - we are looking for a mice bait station that raccoons will not be able to carry off.
What would you recommend? We have used the regular bait stations for many years under our front porch. This year something has emptied it twice and this last time it has disappeared.
A You can use liquid nails and affix any station, such as the Protecta Mouse Bait Station, on a 1 x 1 foot paver you can buy from a local home improvement store. This well prevent them from being moved. Also, if you make sure the bait is secured on the rods, and the station is secure, it should prevent the raccoons from being able to work the bait free from the rods.

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.
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.

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?
