The Vertox 25 Oktablok ll are high-quality block baits for the amateur consumer. The ready-to-use block baits are made from grade wheat flour, blended with chopped wheat with other cereals and proteins which are brought together by edible waxes, with the scent of chocolate to attract rats. The blocks are designed to be used inside and outside, being highly tolerant to humidity.
Rate of application:
For the control of mice, place 1 wax block per bait station, every 2 - 5 metres.
For the control of rats, place 2 - 3 wax blocks per bait station every 5 - 10 metres.
Directions for use:
Where possible, prior to the treatment inform any users of the treated areas and their surroundings about the rodent control campaign. Consider preventative control measures (e.g. plug holes, remove potential food and drink as far as possible) to improve product intake and reduce the likelihood of reinvasion. Carry out a prebaiting survey of the infested area and an on-site assessment to identify the rodent species, their places of activity and determine the likely cause and the extent of the infestation. Remove food which is readily attainable for rodents (e.g. spilled grain or food waste). Apart from this, do not clean up the infested area just before the treatment, as this only disturbs the rodent population and makes bait acceptance more difficult to achieve.
Place the bait in the baiting point by using a dosage device. Dispense from a low height to minimise dust. Clean device with a damp cloth. Replace any bait in baiting points in which bait has been damaged by water or contaminated by dirt. Remove the remaining product at the end of the treatment period (except when directly applied into burrows). Baits must be placed to minimise the exposure to non-target species and children. Cover or block the entrances of baited burrows to reduce the risks of bait being rejected and spilled. Bait stations/points should be placed in the immediate vicinity of places where rodent activity has previously occurred (e.g. rodent runs, nesting sites, holes, burrows etc.).
For pulse baiting: replace eaten bait only after 3 days and then at maximum 7 day intervals. Collect any spilled bait and dead rodents.
Protect bait from atmospheric conditions (e.g. rain, snow, etc.). Place the baiting points in areas not liable to flooding. When placing bait points close to surface waters (e.g. rivers, ponds, water channels, dykes, irrigation ditches) or water drainage systems, ensure that bait contact with water is avoided.
Where possible, bait stations must be fixed to the ground or other structures. Bait should be secured so that it cannot be dragged away from the bait station. Do not wash the bait stations or utensils used in covered and protected bait points with water between applications.
Do not use in areas where resistance to the active substance is suspected. Products shall not be used beyond 35 days without an evaluation of the state of the infestation and of the efficacy of the treatment. Do not rotate the use of different anticoagulants with comparable or weaker potency for resistance management purposes.
For rotational use, consider using a non-anticoagulant rodenticide, if available, or a more potent anticoagulant. To reduce risk of secondary poisoning, search for and remove dead rodents during treatment at frequent intervals.
Because of their delayed mode of action, anticoagulant rodenticides may take from 4 to 10 days to be effective after consumption of the bait.
This product contains a bittering agent and a dye.
Brodifacoum rodenticide can be antidoted with Vitamin K1.
