frequently asked questions
  • How do I safely dispose of unused rodent bait?

    Unused bait should be double-bagged and placed into household waste disposal units with a secure lid or taken to a civil amenity site. 

  • What should I do if my pet eats your bait?

    The Fresh 'n Tasty Mouse & Rat Attractant that comes pre-filled in certain traps, and is sold separately, is prune-based so not harmful to pets. 

    A cat or dog would have to consume a large portion of rodent bait to have a detrimental effect. For example, STV213 All-Weather Block Bait 10g contains Difenacoum. A dog would need to consume 1kg of bait per kg of its body weight, and a cat 2kg of bait per kg of its body weight to cause any harm. Therefore a dog weighing 30kg would need to consume 30kg of this bait, or 3000 10g blocks (or 100 packs of STV213). 

    Ultra Power Block Bait Rodent Killer contains Brodifacoum in 20g blocks. A dog would need to consume 5-20g of bait per kg of its body weight and a cat 500g of its kg of its body weight to have a lethal dose.

    If your pet does consume rodent bait, we advise that you monitor your pet regularly and if you feel they're not acting as normal, take your pet to a vet along with the packaging of the bait for reference.
