it works!, plus some rat intel…
we had an outdoor rat infestation, but are now living rat-free! … thanks to this Tomcat bait box, as well as the items and measures taken below! …
Rats/mice no more.
It’ easy to put out, bait etc and it is water resistant, we had some unbelievable winds not to long ago and these things were great. I haven’t seen dead rats. The bait has disappeared and I haven’t seen my neighbor seizing in the driveway so I’m assuming its the rats that took it. I check them (i bought two) infrequently and replace bait as needed (and keep an eye on my neighbors just in case). Love it. Oh and just for safety buy a few extra bait too these little suckers love also wear gloves when touching the bait as it is a neurotoxin which can get into yooou by soaking through your skin…theoretically any way.
Better Safe Than Sorry
We live in rural Oklahoma, adjacent to open pasture and hay meadows. We have issues with rats and mice around our shop and barn and need to control the rodents as much as possible. We have several of the placed around our home and outbuildings. Our primary concern is the safety of our grandchildren and pets, so any bait stations must meet that criteria. The bait cannot be accessed unless you release a safety catch with one finger while squeezing two other tabs and pulling outward, all at the same time. We have never had an issue with our pets or grandchildren getting one open, or even attempting to do so, but it’s comforting to know that it would be extremely difficult. The bait stations appear to work, but reloading the bait is a monthly task. The baits are good size and claim to be large enough to take care of 3 rats and many more mice. The stations are pretty durable. We have 2 that are more than 3 years old and still in service.
Rat tested, Rat Approved, unfortunately they were unavailable for comment afterwards
Rats had eaten my wiring harness on my new jeep costing 2K in repairs, put this trap out last night and on the first night, half the bait was eaten. Second night, another brick was eaten. So far so good!
Problem with a rat at my elderly parent’s home on a screened in porch. Purchased this item because I did not want cats or dogs to access the poison. The rat began to eat the poison right away, it did not die nearby because I could not smell anything. I have had no sign of any rats since I put the trap out. I would recommend this product. I did use gloves when I handled the poison cubes.
Be patient, it works
I agree with another reviewer here who said that you need to be patient, as the rats won’t just start chowing down on the bait in these traps. In my case, it took weeks before I noticed that the bait was being eaten and my place definitely has rats in residence. Hopefully, this trap, which is supplied with lots of bait, will keep the population in check.
Excellent Way to get rid of Packrats and other rodents.
We used to have these type of boxes at our other house where we had a lot of pack rats. We moved to this new house and thought we wouldn’t need them, but the truth is we still are bothered by packrats. So we put one in the front near where we can hear a critter gnawing in the evening. At first they didn’t touch the poison, but after about two weeks they started eating it. I am going to buy two more, because I think we could use them in other areas of the yard. This is smaller than the ones we had before, but these are better because they are smaller, and the poison is “around a corner”. The bigger ones sometimes attract rattle snakes, so this is better for us!
Prevention is everything.
We have used these, since spring, with great success. In the greenhouse adjacent to our house — technically part of our house — the mice had been eating complete flats of seedlings as if they were “micro greens.” Tomcat stopped the invasion, saved all subsequent sowings. We have been replacing disposable bait traps with refillable because refillable traps are more economical and put fewer plastic products in the waste stream. The rodents rarely die in the traps. All alternatives to poison are impractical and imprudent because where we live, in a semi-rural area near the foothills of the Rockies, there always is a danger of bacterial and viral diseases that are lethal to cats, dogs, and people. We also use Tomcat traps in ourm home too. A tip: Before we refill them, we wash the traps with Dial antibacterial soap, always with gloves on our hands, and let them air-dry thoroughly before we add the bait sticks and close them securely. Opening the traps might seem tricky, but remember that children and pets seem to have more determination than we do.
