Rat Bait Station – Greenlife is an essential pest control tool for both indoor and outdoor use in rodent control programs and supports HACCP guidelines.
Before any bait(chemical poison formulated to be highly toxic to rats and mice) placement is made it is necessary to conduct a site survey to determine the nature and the extent of the infestation. Once established, ensure that the correct placement is made, as this is critical to the success of the campaign.
Manufactured in tough polypropylene with a secure lock, the plastic bait stations can be secured to a wall or the ground. They have been tested to withstand a ‘pull weight’ in excess of 30kg at its center, resisting most attempts at unauthorized entry.
- Recommended for external areas that are not generally accessible to the public.
- Suitable for all weather conditions.
What is Rat Bait?
Rat bait is essentially a chemical poison formulated to be highly toxic to rats and mice. It is available in a wide variety of formulations.
The use of well-designed, tamperproof bait stations should be sited in areas that are inaccessible to non-target species whenever possible. Bait Station characteristics include:
- Economic, rat-sized, tamper-resistant bait station.
- Highly versatile – converts into a mechanical trap using snap traps (sold separately), and houses the Liquid Bait Station (sold separately) as well.
- Tamperproof design.
- Suitable for all weather conditions.
- Available in grey color.
- Economic rat-sized bait station – for cost-sensitive accounts.
- Lockable and tamper-resistant.
- Easy to lock since it comes with a latch.

Rat Bait Station – Greenlife Advantages
Protects Children and Pets From Poison Rodent Baits
Placing the rodent bait box onto the rods or pegs inside the bait station will permit the rat to feed, but not remove the bait (translocate) to another location. This protects children and non-targeted animals from the poison bait.
Keeps Rodent Bait Fresh
In addition to protecting non-targeted animals from the poison bait, tamper-resistant rat bait stations also protect the inserted bait from the weather. The bait stations will keep the bait fresh. Fresh bait attracts the rodent for a longer time period.
Rodent Bait Stations with Rods
Securing the bait on the bait rods will ensure that the rodents can not remove the bait. They will eat the bait inside the bait station. Besides not translocating the bait, rodent bait stations will stop one rat from hoarding the bait, permitting all the rat colonies to feed on it.
Rat Bait Station Placement Tips
Rod the bait inside the bait stations. Set the rat bait stations between 15-50 feet apart. If the rat population is heavy, go about every 15 feet. Inspect for harborage areas, and place bait stations near these areas.
Rats are suspicious of new objects in the environment. Norway rats and Roof rats may need some encouragement to enter the rat bait stations for the first time. This problem is solved by placing a non-toxic lure like peanut butter, fish, or apples inside the entrance holes. It is crucial not to allow the rodenticide to touch the lure.
- Place rat bait stations near runways where rats will most likely find them. For Norway rats, the placement is typically on the ground. For Roof rats, the rat station location is a higher placement.
- Keep the rat bait stations filled with rat bait, until the rat population is killed. Empty stations mean missed opportunities to totally kill the population.
- When two or more consecutive rat bait stations show signs of feeding, add more stations in between to make sure that the rodents are not entering the adjacent structure.
- If you are performing commercial rodent control around food facilities, become knowledgeable of sanitation procedures.
