Selecting the right bait station is a critical step in implementing proper integrated pest management (IPM). One size does not fit all when it comes to rodenticide stations, which is why there are so many options available to choose from. Make sure you understand the differences and pick a station that best fits your needs. The first step is to determine your target, as some bait sta...

New research1 looked at managing house mouse populations in apartment complexes. As part of this study, residents were interviewed about their perceptions of mice. Want to know what those residents thought? Your inspection and communication with customers is essential. For the apartments with house mouse activity, only 27% had noticed it.

  Maximize Ant Control with Baiting An often-overlooked component in effective ant management is exterior baiting with gel or liquid baits. Granular baits, which consist of a carrier (often corn grit) and an attractive food source like soybean oil, are what many PMPs think of when they think about exterior baiting. This can be a highly effective approach especially for fat- or protein-loving ants such as fire ants. However, when dealing with sugar-loving ants like Argentine ants, odorous house ants, ghost ants and others, both the size of the granu...
