For 90+ years we have protected properties across the UK from pests
All local technicians are highly trained and certified pest controllers
Innovative and unique treatments that resolve pest problems effectively
An effective way to control rats on your property is through the use of bait, also known as rodenticides. At Rentokil, we have access to a large selection of professional baits suitable for use indoors and out. We combine the use of rat bait with our range of bait stations as part of a customised rat control programme.
Our BPCA certified technicians are trained in the safest and most effective use of second generation anticoagulant rodenticides (SGARs) that meet the strict requirements of the Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use (CRRU) stewardship scheme. As a professional organisation we ensure our front line staff are fully aware of the risks professional products can pose to wildlife and apply this knowledge to reduce any risks to non-target species.
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. All of our chemical bait contain Bitrex, this is the harshest taste known to the human tongue. If it is accidentally consumed by humans, the taste will cause you to spit it out immediately.
Using Bait Stations
Our rat baits are installed and distributed in a wide variety of tamper–resistant bait stations. They have been developed and successfully tested in-house to ensure they can offer effective treatment against rodents. Our bait stations have been specifically designed to be tamper resistant, enabling their use in areas where there might be children or pets present. The bait contained inside is only accessible to rats and will cause no harm to others.
Benefits of using bait stations
Ensures your rodent control complies with Health & Safety regulations - bait boxes are clearly labelled, stating their purpose and what they contain.
Keeps staff, customers and members of the public safe from inadvertent harm.
Protects your business against litigation, lost profits and damaged reputation.
