Poison baiting is usually used for rat and mice treatment as this is more reliable than other methods. Rats and mice may need to feed several times before dying. If they consume enough poison to give them a lethal dose on their first feed, they will not suffer any ill effects until several days later. This ensures that they do not become suspicious and associate the bait with illness. A 'complete kill' takes place killing all the rats/mice in the colony depending when the bait is eaten. All activity should stop within 7-14 days. Up to three visits may be needed depending on the infestation.
