We have created three handy Mouse Control Kits for use indoors or outdoors (around buildings only). Select which kit you require depending on the extent of the infestation you may have.
Each kit consist of 750g or more Grain Bait Sachets (UK Authorisation Number UK-2013-0702) plus a selection of mouse boxes, poison blocks (UK Authorisation Number UK-2013-0702), traps and open bait trays. Once baited, the boxes should be placed in secure positions frequented by mice, away from any non-target species. The bait sachets should be used unopened. We also include gloves, and a disposal bag for the hygienic disposal of any dead mice.

Lodi Ruby Grain is a very attractive and highly palatable difenacoum whole wheat bait for use against mice. It contains an irresistible aniseed attractant which enhances rapid 'take'.
Roban Cut Wheat is particularly attractive to mice who prefer to strip whole grains, only eating the inside
Traps should be placed at right-angles to the direction of rodent travel, the treadle end of the trap being placed across the rodent run, against a vertical surface.
Baits or attractants can increase catch rates if placed on the treadle.
Traps should also be placed so as to avoid trapping non-target species.
Bear in mind that animals become trap shy with prolonged use and that the absence of trapped animals does not necessarily confirm the absence of rodents.
Using bait trays and bait boxes:
Open bait trays should be placed in secure, covered positions where non-target species (birds, hedgehogs, dogs, cats and children) cannot access them, whilst the locked bait boxes may be discreetly placed in more exposed but equally secure positions. Mice eat little and often so to be effective a large number of baiting points should be used.
Mice exhibit a rapid investigatory response to new objects, but their interest wanes rapidly and they move on to something new. To be successful in controlling mice you need to be proactive. Move and refresh bait points every 2-3 days.
Use bait points of 20-30g, 5m apart, reducing to 2m in heavy infestation.
The active ingredient is 0.005% w/w difenacoum.
