Ask Mr. Pest Control

Q. Rodents are not going into a bait station and consuming bait. They go around and over it. How can I control activity?

— Armando, CA

A. If we’re talking about rats and a newly placed bait station, it might be a matter of patience until they’re ready to go inside. Or, it may be size - some rats are too big for low profile bait stations. Does your program consist of anything besides this one or other bait stations? The rats might better accept food baits on snap traps. If we’re talking about mice, then wind-up multiple catch traps are another option in place of bait stations. Glue trays can also be placed in mouse runways. There are a number of options beyond rodenticides. What to choose depends on which rodent and what else is happening in the environment.
