Product Documents

Tamper-resistant PROTECTA Bait Stations (Model - PS2540) are an integral part of baiting. They keep bait away from children, livestock, pets and other animals, as well as protect bait from dust, dirt, moisture and other contaminants so bait stays fresh longer. Use them also to monitor rodent activity to determine areas of heavy and mild infestation.

Made of heavy-duty, injection-molded plastic, PROTECTA Bait Stations withstand the toughest baiting situations indoors and out. It's large enough to accommodate six rats and holds up to one pound of dry bait and one pint of liquid bait. Horizontal and vertical bait securing rods keep Blox bait securely in the station.

PROTECTA Bait Station is ideal for perimeter baiting and can be attached to a permanent structure or staked to the ground for added security. It locks with a locking screw (included) and unlocks with an Allen key wrench (included). A padlock also works. Liners which fit into the bait compartment are available to make cleaning and rebaiting easier. PROTECTA Bait Station measures 11 1/2 " x 12" x 6 1/2" and is available in black, light gray and green to fit discreetly in any baiting environment.

    5 of 5 stars  Protecta Bait Station
    By John in Gloucester, MA on 10/06/2010
    Verified Purchase

    Works Great! I used in combination with the T-Rex trap and they worked perfectly. I skipped the rat attractant and just used peanut butter - worked fine, although if you have a lot of traps liquid attractant is probably faster. I have 3 dogs and wanted to be sure they didn't get poisoned or set off the trap. I live 1/4mi from the ocean in MA so wharf rats are looking for a home this time of year - the stone foundation of my 100+ year old house likely has some gaps and a rat got inside several years ago - no fun at all. I placed several Protecta stations/T-Rex traps around the perimeter/exterior of my foundation and got a rat within days. I don't recall if there is a bait station with a see through top - if so that would save the hassle of having to open the box to see if you have a "catch" or not.

    5 of 5 stars  Easy to bait, tamper resistant, works well!
    By Sharon in Santa Barbara, CA on 06/14/2010

    We have encircled the perimeter of our 1.5 acre property with these bait boxes, using the Supersize Blox bait and our home has been rodent free for over a year. We replace the bait every 6-8 weeks (and add snail bait to the box, too). Knowing we are rodent free is worth every penny.

    4 of 5 stars  Protecta Rat Bait Station (6)
    By Jim in Prescott, AZ on 12/02/2011

    I am using the Protecta Bait Stations with Contrac Blox rat bait. Here in Arizona, we have a huge Pack Rat problem. I have been using T Rex traps, but the rats do become trap shy. I am very satisfied with the stations. They keep out rain, and keep out the birds and rabbits. I have tried putting a T Rex trap inside, but I wish you could see into the box before opening it. A few times I have opened the station to see a rat caught in the trap, still alive. A clear plastic window would help. Otherwise, a great product. After three weeks, I can't find evidence of rats anywhere!

    5 of 5 stars  Protecta rat bait station
    By Thomas in Laguna Hills, CA on 10/02/2010

    The unit was delivered before the expected time. Once I realize that all I need to do is to make it look like the picture of the open station on the website, the station can be set up easily. The screw lock and Allen wrench key combination, as provided, is much more preferable than any special lock and key in other models. As smaller size packages (1 lb or less) are not available on the web, bait needs to be purchased at local Home Depot or Lowes stores. Watch for dead rats in the bushes!

  • 4 of 5 stars  Rat Bait Station
    By Betty in Litchfield on 05/31/2017

    If you have a rodent problem, this may be a good solution for you. I have a pest control service at some rentals that I own, but when we saw rats at our business, I decided to try these on my own. These are almost the same as what are used by the pest people. The verticle works much better than the horizontal or I would have given it a 5 star rating. I would recommend that you do away with the horizontal and only use the vertical.

    4 of 5 stars  Bait Stations
    By Lisa in Norwich CT on 04/14/2017

    I recently purchased four of these to put on the outside of my home. There are two on the perimeter of the house and two around the garage. I had previously hired a exterminator to come and was paying them hundreds of dollars every year. I decided to go on my own and purchase my own products and I'm glad that I did. In a few days I could tell there was activity because one of the stations was actually moved from the spot that I had placed it, feeling that a large animal tried to get in there to feed. They are the same type of stations that the company that I had hired have used, so that's how I had the idea to use the large ones. I placed a large flat rock on top of them so the wind wouldn't blow them away. They seem to be working fine so far. I just wish they had weights inside to hold them down. This would make it much more convenient.

  • 4 of 5 stars  Oh Rats!
    By Michael in Clovis, CA on 03/31/2017

    I purchased two of these traps. I haven't had them long so I feel uncomfortable commenting on how effective they are in controlling my rat population. But I can say that I am please with the quality of the traps and the security system to prevent children or pets from gaining access to the poison. Hope this helps.

    By Ronald in Kennesaw GA on 03/21/2017

    Ground pins weren't long enough Raccoons keep dragging it away. I do like the way the bait is secured, The old ones I bought don't.

    Expert Response   Expert response:
    Thank you for your feedback! If you are concerned about aggressive animals damaging or moving around your bait stations, then you have several options in addition to stakes. You can place a brick on top of stations to weigh them down, you can use epoxy to attach the stations to a concrete footer, you can use wire or zip ties to secure to the station to a fence or vertical post, or you can use stations that have a weight attached. The same company makes a station called the Protecta EVO Express Bait Station which has a brick inside each station to keep them in place: Please let us know if we can further assist you!

    By Burnie in Okeechobee, FL on 07/02/2016

    The product was well built and good quality. It included two methods for mounting the bait. The predrilled holes for the bait rods fit very well. I was most intrigued with the multiple latch methods. The easy spring catches, the removable tie-wrap, a Philips screw, and a place for a pad-lock.

    By Beth in Baltimore, MD on 01/03/2016

    I've been very disappointed. I live in Baltimore and the rat problem here is pretty severe. I had hopes that this might do the trick, but so far, it hasn't done anything. Rats are still burrowing into the side of my foundation and they still seem to be getting into my trash.

QOnce a rat is trapped inside the Protecta Rat Bait Station, can it get out?

AThe only way a rat would go inside the Protecta Rat Bait Station and not come out is if you placed a T-Rex Rat Trap inside that killed the rat.  The stations have holes for rodents to go in and out and also are child proof and have a locking mechanism that prevent children and pets from accessing whatever is inside.  Some people place rodent poison inside the station for the rats to eat.  If this was the case the rat would go into the trap, eat the bait, and be able to leave.  Only if you place the T-Rex Snap Trap inside would the rat not be able to leave the station.

QHow can I kill spiders, rats, and mice on my farm without harming the other animals I raise?
I have cats, dogs, horses, goats and various rescues. Sometimes I catch the animals snacking on random things that they find laying around. I am worried that they might eat the poison. Please help, I cannot keep finding black widow spiders and other nasty insects indoors!

AYou can use a rodent bait in tamper resistant bait boxes to control the rodents on your farm. The bait boxes will secure the bait so that only rats and mice will have access to it. In most cases, well fed cats and dogs will not eat a dead rodent. In the event that they do, they would need to eat 10 or more to have any effect from the bait that killed the rodent. You can treat for spiders and other insects using an insecticide such as Talstar P. Talstar P is safe to use around animals, is non-irritating and has a very broad label covering over 75 different insects. When applying any insecticide, remove the animals from the area that is being treated, spray the area, allow the area to dry and then the animals can safely return to the treated area.

QHow do you "clean" a Protecta bait station and remove spoiled bait?
I have purchased Contrac Blox as well as the Protecta Bait Station. The instructions say to remove spoiled bait as well as keeping the stations "clean" as the mice will avoid the station otherwise. How do you recommend such cleaning? I have several stations that have "moldy" bait as well as numerous mice dropping but not sure if bleaching type cleaning procedures will drive the mice away from the stations themselves. Please help!

ACleaning the Proctecta Rat Bait station should only consist of removing the spoiled bait, wiping with a cloth or brushing out the station with a clean paint brush and if necessary rinsing with water to remove any leftover debris. You will make the stations less desirable if you clean them with harsh cleaners.

QWill rabbits also be attracted to and eat the poison bait?
I am looking to protect my garden by using bait stations near our shed which is next to our garden. Will these baits also attract rabbits in addition to rats and squirrels?

AThe rodenticide baits are only labeled for rats and mice and meant to attractant these types of rodents.  That is not to say that it won't attract other rodents such as a rabbit and if a rabbit was to eat enough of the bait they would die.

QWhere is the best place for rat bait stations, next to the house near drain pipes or further out in the garden?
We used to have Terminix and they placed the rat bait stations out in the garden saying that it creates a perimeter ring around the house as opposed to right up near the house where there is no "safety" perimeter. Does this make sense?

ADue to the new EPA regulations passed on June 4, 2011 you will be required to place the Protecta Rat Bait Stations around the foundation of your home and you will no longer be allowed to place the stations away from the structure. You should place the stations near areas where rodents would have best possibility of gaining entrance to your home. Near doors, vents and low windows or near other areas where you may have noticed activity would be the best choices.

QIs there a specific brand of bait required to use with the Protecta Rat Bait Station?
I have a large box of Just One Bite.


It does not matter what type of bait you use, such as the Just One Bite, Contrac Blox, Final, nuts, dog kibble, canned tuna or peanut butter if you are using snap traps in the stations. Be patient, it could take several days or even a couple of weeks before the rats are comfortable enough with the traps to approach them. After you have eliminated your current infestation you must take the time to exclude rodents from entering your home in the future.

QHow often should you change the rodent bait in a Protecta Rat Bait Station?


When using a bait station like the Protecta Rat Bait Station, replacing the bait is going to depend on how much activity there is.† You should check the bait stations daily to start with to monitor the levels at which the rodents are consuming the bait. The key to control is to keep enough bait in the station to supply the population around the structure.† The goal is never to have the stations be empty when rodents go inside to look for food. You may find that you have to replace the bait daily at first, but after the population dwindles you will have to add bait much less frequently (once per week or even once per month).† Bait should also be replaced if it is insect infested or moldy. ††

QIs it legal in Florida to place bait stations around the perimeter of a pond or lake?


Protecta Rat Bait Station should be used around your home and in areas where you have seen rodent activity. They should be used in spaces where rodents will travel. If they seen are by a lake or pond, they can be placed near there, however, they would likely just be drinking from this lake or pond. It is best to place the bait stations where you have seen droppings around your home. Legally, most bait in bait stations must be used within 50 feet of a structure.
