What bait Blox should I be using?
I have been using Terad3 for the last7 months. I believe racoons are reaching in and taking the Blox from the Protectra stations. Should I be using a different Blox like Final, Fastrac, Contract, etc. What Blox do you feel are the most effective?
Fastrac Blox do have the fastest knockdown/kill of all of the blox and is the bait of choice when you are trying to wipe out a current heavy infestation. Fastrac usually kills within 12-24 hours after the rodent consumes a lethal dose of the bait. Terad3 will do the job but it is a slower working bait and can take up to a week to kill a rodent that has consumed a lethal dose of the bait. What Protecta Rodent Stations are you using? Most of the tamper resistant Protecta stations come with rods to hold the bait in place which should prevent raccoons from carrying off the bait.
