Fastrac Blox Rodenticide is a highly palatable block bait for the control of rats and mice including those resistant to anticoagulants. For use in and around buildings. Determine areas where rats and/or mice will most likely find and consume bait. Generally, these areas are along walls or rafters, by gnawed openings, beside burrows, in corners and concealed places between floors and walls or in locations where rodents or their signs have been observed. Wax blocks are particularly suitable for use in damp situations where risk of contamination should be minimized. Replace contaminated or spoilt bait immediately. To prevent reinfestation, eliminate food, water and harborage as much as possible. If reinfestation should occur, repeat treatment. Where a continuous source of reinfestation is present, establish permanent bait stations and replenish bait as needed.
Directions for use:
Set out baits in places frequented by mice and rats but not more than 30 m from buildings or structures. Bait stations must be secured. For rats: place 4 or more blocks per bait station at intervals of 5-9 m depending on level of uptake and infestation. For mice: place 2-6 blocks per bait station at 2-3 m intervals. In very high infestations use the shorter distance between bait stations.
For Mice: Use 2 blocks. In very high infestation or fast uptake of the bait use up to 6 blocks.
For Rats: Use 4 or more blocks depending on level of infestation. In very high infestation or fast uptake use more blocks per bait station.

|Critical Comments:Eliminate, as far as practicable, all alternative food sources. Bait areas where conditions might encourage rodent activity. Securable, tamper resistant bait stations must be used at all locations to prevent access to non-target animals. Inspect bait stations on a regular basis. Replace eaten or old/deteriorated baits. If eaten quickly, increase the number of bait stations. Continue observation and replenish until no more baits are taken. Baiting for at least two weeks may be necessary to reduce rat/mouse numbers.
