SPECIMEN DIRECTIONS FOR USE
It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with
READ THIS LABEL and follow all use directions and precautions. For information
on this product (including health concerns, medical emergencies or pesticide
incidents) call the National Pesticide Information Center at 1-800-858-7378.
IMPORTANT: Do not expose children, pets or other nontarget animals to
rodenticides. To help prevent accidents:
1. Store product not in use in a location out of reach of children and pets.
2. Apply bait in locations out of reach of children, pets, domestic animals and
nontarget wildlife, or in tamper-resistant bait stations. These stations must be
resistant to destruction by dogs and children under six years of age, and must
be used in a manner that prevents such children from reaching into bait
compartments and obtaining bait. If bait can be shaken from stations when they
are lifted, units must be secured or otherwise immobilized. Even stronger bait
stations are needed in areas open to hoofed livestock, raccoons, bears, other
potentially destructive animals, or in areas prone to vandalism.
3. Dispose of product container, unused, spoiled, and unconsumed bait as
specified on this label.
USE RESTRICTIONS: This product may be used to control Norway rats, roof
rats and house mice. Do not place near or inside ventilation duct openings. Do
not contaminate water, food, feedstuffs, food or feed handling equipment, or milk
or meat handling equipment. Do not broadcast bait.
Urban areas: This product may be used in and around homes, food processing
facilities, industrial, commercial and public buildings; in transport vehicles (ships,
trains, aircraft) and in and around related port or terminal buildings. This product
may also be used in alleys and sewers.
Non-urban areas: This product may be used inside of homes and agricultural
SELECTION OF TREATMENT AREAS: Determine areas where rats or mice
will most likely find and consume bait. Generally, these are along walls, by
gnawed openings, in or beside burrows, in corners and concealed places,
between floors or walls, or in locations where rodents or their signs have been
seen. Remove as much alternative food as possible.
Each block is scored to be broken into 2-oz. pieces.
Mice: Break block and apply one 2-oz. piece per placement. Space placements
8 to 12 feet apart. Maintain a constant supply of fresh bait for 15 days or until
fresh signs of mouse activity cease.
Rats: Apply two to eight 2-oz. pieces of block per placement, usually spaced 15
to 30 feet apart. Maintain a constant supply of fresh bait for 10 days or until
fresh signs of rat activity cease.
For burrow applications, insert one or two 2-oz. pieces of block deep into each
active burrow. Check treated burrows each morning and evening to make sure
that bait has not been pushed out of burrows.
For sewer applications, securely attach one end of a wire to bait block and the
other end to a stationary structure such as the bottom step of manhole ladder
or sewer grate, allowing just enough wire for bait to rest on a manhole bench. If
no bench is present, suspend bait a few inches above the high water line, or
place bait on a board supported by opposing steps of the ladder. Secure bait in
this manner to minimize chance for removal by rats or water. Place at least one
entire bait block per manhole.
Follow-up: Replace contaminated or spoiled bait immediately. Collect and
dispose of all visible dead animals and leftover bait properly. To discourage
reinfestation, limit sources of rodent food, water and harborage as much as
possible. If reinfestation occurs, repeat treatment. For a continuous infestation,
set up permanent bait stations and replenish bait as needed. (15105)
