Product overview

A true block-bait containing the anti-coagulant poison brodifacoum. Most suitable for controlling rats, but also effective against mice.

Place blocks in bait station and observe bait take. Replace blocks that become more than 50% eaten to minimise the chance of blocks being removed from bait stations. Maintain the supply of blocks until bait is no longer eaten.

Where continuous control is required, maintain a steady supply of blocks, replacing uneaten blocks at monthly intervals to ensure bait remains fresh.

Unlike egg-shaped baits, Pestoff Rodent Blocks cannot be rolled away and are manufactured with a hole in the middle so they can be easily nailed down to prevent ‘stealing and burying away from the site’.

• Control rats and mice
• True block-bait - contains brodifacoum
• Hole in middle for easy securing

We have Morepork which I have seen taking mice and small rats. Will secondary poisoning effect birds of prey?
It may do depending on how much the Morepork is exposed to. We recommend cation on this where possible

We have a huge rat living under our hen house. It’s about the size of a kitten. I started with 1 block per night in the bait station but the rat was actually lifting it off the nail and stealing it. With block no. 6 I started placing a jam jar lid over the top of the poison and of course he can’t lift it off but the poison is gone by morning. So far I’ve left 13 blocks and they’ve all disappeared from the bait station. How long does it take to kill a rat, especially a large one?
Sounds if it's had a good dose! Rats and mice can take between 5-10 days and possums may take up to 15 days.

how quickly does it kill --we have have limited luck with Contrac blocks they have been really disapointing --are these better
Depending on consumption, about 5-10 days. Check out the great reviews from other customers in regards to their experience with the product.

Will it kill my dog if he ate a rat that was poisoned by pestoff?
It's very unlikely if the following precautions are followed: Even small amounts of brodifacoum consumed by pets can cause them adverse health effects and therefore every sensible precaution should be taken to minimize their risk of exposure by way of either primary or secondary poisoning (eating a dead rat). So: Use bait stations which prevent access to baits by pets and children. Keep baiting periods short (about 1 week) and infrequent. Collect and dispose of dead rodent bodies. Don't allow dogs to roam and scavenge. Keep pets well fed and under reasonable watch. Cats which are well fed will not eat rat or possum baits and their limited capacity to consume rodents combined with their higher resistance to brodifacoum, limits their risk. A single dead rat could contain 0.4mg of brodifacoum if it ate 20 grams of bait. A small 8kg dog with an LD50 of 1mg/kg would need to eat 20 of these rats but less than half that number could cause a prolonged period of ill health. The risk for cats is similarly small, although they have a higher resistance to brodifacoum. It is impossible to predict where poisoned animals will die. However, this is very often outside and when they die in ceiling space or wall cavities, the smell tends to last only a week or so.

Pestoff Rodent Block for Possum trapping in Timm's Traps

Using the yellow Timm's possum traps * thread the rat block onto the spike * secure rat block on spike using an elastic band underneath and loop the remaining part of the elastic band over the spike bend to hold the bait in place Think the chocolate aroma is what lures the possums, and using this method has increased our possum cull greatly. As the blocks are held in place, the rats can also come along and eat them. Works extremely well :)

Pestoff rodent block

Definitely works. In fact I saw a dopey rat which had been drugged going down one side of my garden and we finished him off. It does seem to take a while before we catch all the rats under the garden shed.
