Which mouse bait box should I choose?

There is quite a selection of mouse bait boxes available, but they all fill the same basic function. The important thing is to ensure you choose one that is lockable and will be supplied with a key. (there is no point buying a box that cannot be locked).

Mouse bait boxes are available in a greater range than the rat ones, most aren’t large enough to accept traps just poison. They come in different shapes some designed to fit corners or very small spaces. The Protecta Mouse Bait box will accept the Trapper MiniRex Mouse Trap.

Do not place both poison and a trap in the box at the same time use multiple boxes if you wish to simultaneously employ both methods of control.

How do I use my mouse bait box?

When you purchase a mouse bait box you will receive a key, free of charge. To open the bait box you need to insert the key and twist it to release the latch. If you need a spare / replacement key,  please get in touch with us.

Baiting your mouse bait station will depend on the one purchased, however, most operate in a similar way. Once you have unlocked the box you will notice vertical or horizontal rods. These are used to secure block type bait or pasta bait if you are using that formulation.

Blocks have a pre-formed hole through the centre, pasta bait is squishy enough to skewer onto the rods. Once the bait is secured close the lid and use the key to lock the box. Loose grain bait can also be placed in these boxes,  as can a spring trap, depending on the box you have chosen.

Where do I place the mouse bait boxes?

Mice are much more gullible than rats and their inquisitive nature means they will much more readily investigate a bait box and it contents. Place the bait boxes against the edges of skirtings or cupboards, under sinks and kitchen units. Mice love to climb, so place them in areas other than the floor. If you find there has been no activity in the boxes move them around to other areas.
