This NebGuide describes the design and safe use of bait stations for rat and mouse control. It includes information on correct bait station placement and bait selection.
Toxic baits are often used to control the damage caused by Norway rats (Rattus norvegicus) and house mice (Mus musculus). Bait stations used in rodent control programs may increase both the effectiveness and safety of rodent baits (rodenticides).
