Place up to 13 units per bait point. Place a good number of bait points in dry locations throughout the infested area on runs, in burrows and where droppings are seen.


Place 1 to 2 units per bait point. As mice are sporadic feeders use many bait points, 1 - 2 metres apart, wherever droppings, damage or other signs of activity are seen.


Use 1 pasta block per bait station. Place bait at regular intervals of 20 metres in a grid pattern over the infested area in a bait station.
