    It has always been my understanding that exterior rodent stations must be removed and returned to our office when we are no longer servicing an account. Now I have a customer that wants to keep them even though they have closed the account. I can't find anything on the label. Is there a law or regulation I can refer to? .

    How Inaccessible Should Inaccessible Be?

    Under Maine law, rodenticide stations in schools need to be placed in areas inaccessible to students. Are locked and anchored rodent stations placed in halls considered to be inaccessible in your opinion? In mine, they are not. Such areas would be inaccessible voids, wall voids, areas behind locked doors, etc.
