...I saw something out of the corner of my eye. I didn't worry about it. Then next time I was working there I saw it again. Finally when I moved some bags I saw that a corner had been chewed...
RATSAK Fast Action Wax Blocks
RATSAK Fast Action wax blocks are moisture resistant, making them ideal for damp or dry areas. The active ingredient in the bait will kill rats and mice in a single feed. The hole in the centre of the block is designed to allow for pinning, or tying the wax block in positions off the ground or where rodents are climbing. It also contains a bittering agent which helps prevent accidental consumption by children.
Available sizes: 80g (6 waxblocks)
How to use

Place baits where there are signs of rodent activity, along walls or rafters and in dark, sheltered places.

Baiting strategy for effective control
Eliminate as far as practical, all alternative food sources. Bait should not be touched as this deters rats and mice from eating it. Bait infested area. Record the number and location of waxblocks for later replenishment and or removal. Inspect baits daily. Replace eaten baits. Continue observation and replenishment until no more baits are taken. Ensure baits are removed when rodent activity has ceased. Most deaths occur 4 to 7 days after consumption of bait. Baiting for at least 2 weeks will be necessary to reduce rat/mouse numbers. One feed is sufficient to kill rats and mice. Rats and mice will continue to eat the bait after a lethal dose has been eaten. Fast Action Ratsak Waxblocks will control species resistant to warfarin and bromadiolone. The wax block formulation allows baiting in damp as well as dry locations.
