Make a rat bait container. Buy large size black PVC pipes about 4" wide(so you can get your hand in to change the bait). Have the hardware store cut each bait tube about 18" long.
Drill a hole on one side of the tube towards the center and a hole parallel on the other side so that a long thin metal stake ( used for holding down drip system hoses) or BBQ skewer can be inserted straight through the tube. Thread the stake through one side to the other catching the rat poison bait blocks inside the tube like a shish kabob. This way other animals are less likely to reach into the tube and get it and the rats HAVE TO EAT IT THERE and they can't haul it off to another location that may injure family pets. It's also easy to reload more bait in this tube.

We live in a new construction home that was built next to a huge open field so we have had an uphill battle with mice. We love the Victor mouse traps and have always used those but this winter it got to where we had too many mice to just put out traps.

One night I woke up and went to get a drink, turned on the kitchen light and 5 mice scattered! It was so disgusting, I woke up my husband and said we're going to the store and getting something now! I had been hesitant to buy any poisons due to the fact we have two dogs one who is a regular Dora the Explorer and I was afraid they would find it. But it had gotten to the point where the family's safety was at jeopardy with so many mice leaving messes everywhere.

By the time we got home from the store we were so tired and hubby convinced me to wait until the morning. So we put the box unopened on a shelf inside a storage closet. The next morning when we went to get the bait the mice had seeked out the box, tore into it, and eaten 3 blocks of bait! WOW! I can't believe how well it worked. So we went ahead and put the bait out where the dogs couldn't get to it. That night we saw our last live mouse. The next morning we found a dead one on our kitchen counter (gross!) and we haven't seen one since!

There hasn't been any dead odor either so I'm guessing the product works by making them thirsty then they leave looking for water and die in the field. It has just been a miracle worker for us. We have recommended it to others in our subdivision and it has worked for everyone. Just put out a few new blocks every month and your pesky problem should be gone :)

It hasn't gotten rid of all of our house mice but I think that's because we haven't found all their entry points and new ones are coming in. I've put this bait out and found green droppings, showing me that they are eating it. I've also opened the garbage once to find that 3 mice had crawled into the kitchen trash to look for food and since they'd just eaten the poison I had behind the trash they were so weak and sick they weren't able to get back out of the trash. It definitely kills them and they will eat it.

Rats built a nest in one of my sheds and were using the dog-door as a highway into my kitchen.

I tried conventional traps (moderate success) and the new electronic trap (total failure) and then I tried the Tomcat rat bait.

This is the way to go.

I was hesitant about using rat bait because I'd read that rats will often die in the walls and create a stench. But apparently with this stuff, the rats get thirsty before they die and head out of the house looking for water.

Put out the bait. Three days later - no rats. And no stink.

If you have pets, you have to be careful about where you put the bait. My dog got a hold of one bait stick and was merrily munching away on it when I caught her. Fortunately, the poison is not nearly as toxic to dogs (even pound per pound) as it is to rats, and the dog suffered no ill-effects.

The same is not true of rats. You got rats? You get this stuff. No more rats!

I recently bought some of these blocks at the local Lowes here. I have used them before. I occasionally have a mouse problem of which whom seem to love the idea of coming back for a return engagement no matter how hard I try to discourage them. Good old fashioned traps, (as well as the new fangled ones available) still do a bang up job that you can see up close and personal. But a real solution to the problem is the very same that it is for any pest infestation. Take the matter to their home base. You get eight of these blocks for a very reasonable price. And there is no question that the poison in them is most effective against the vermin. The only problem I have encountered with them in the past is the mice will tend to ignore them if there is some better vittles available. That is, if your particular mice are already getting into your cereal, potatoes, bread, etc, they will continue to dine on the higher priced and gourmet items regardless if these are made available or not. I really don't know how tasty they are to mice, but I tend to believe they are not as good as what else we can offer them in our kitchens. These work best if you seal away all your food as well as you can for the duration of the treatment. (About 2 weeks according the package). I think that no matter how much food is about that they can get into, these blocks will not be totally ignored. But they certainly work much more effectively when they are the only game in town. Oh and one other point, the package directions claim that you should continue supplying these blocks for at least a week after any infestation seems to have eased, or you surmise that all the mice that you had are gone. It's not just this company trying to sell you more blocks. I have quit early on them before only to see them return again later on. The complete usage of all in the box is a good bet to tackle the entire colony. The package recommends one block for every 12 to 15 feet of floor space, so buy accordingly depending on the size of your spread. Recommended, and economical...

This product is one of the best solutions for pest of rats. I put these blocks strategically around the fence of my house and BINGO!!! No more rats. I suggest to put these blocks once a month and the rats will be attracted because of the smell of the product.. as soon as the rats eat a little bit of this, they go far away looking for water and die. This means that you don`t have to treat with carcasses of rats.

I don't know about the rat eating this stuff yet, but the carpenter ants around my shed are having a feast. Actually I havent seen one ant since I saw them feasting. Yep I hope they take it to there nests also.

I actually baited a 4 inch pvc coupling of some sort, and drilled tiny holes on both sides of the tube, then ran the wire through both bait blocks, then put the wires into the drilled holes, and crimped them back so the wire, and the blocks are stationary. However I placed it behind an upright fence with heavy equipment against it; prohibiting any animal larger than 3 inches getting to it. What a fabulous idea

Update: One week before I bought this stuff, I saw three med sized rats playing near my shed, almost every day, and late in the evening. The next week I put the bait blocks out, and the next morning I went to see if there was any activity. Yes! it had it's head inside the tube eating the poison, and when he heard me near he didn't even leave the bait tube, he just turned around, and hid his face in the shallow clover vines. It never ran away; so I left it to finish breakfast. They have been feasting every since. One block was completely devoured in 4 days.

I havent seen any rats in three days, however the block was still being nibbled on at night.

June 30, 2012...No more rats!!!!!!!!!

I purchased this at Home Depot not on this website, but it is the same product. I discovered a mouse in my garage so I placed these in different parts of the garage before going to sleep. The next morning I noticed that one of them had been nibbled on. Nearby I found a mouse that was still alive, but pretty close to death. I found another dead mouse a short distance away.

had a rat problem recently, and this stuff took care of it handily. we had rats in our garage that had gotten in through the doggie door, and gnawed their way into the walls of our home. it got to a point where we could hear them scurrying, digging, and gnawing at the walls almost every hour. we set rat traps everywhere in the garage baited with everything from beef jerky to peanut butter, and did not catch a single rat. i bought this stuff off amazon and dropped a few blocks into the mouse holes in the garage, dropped some more into some crawl space we had, and within a week the noise was gone. hopefully the rats are gone too, but i'll be ordering plenty more of this if they return.
