Bell Labs Introduces T1 Mouse Pre-Baited Station

The T1 Mouse is a pre-baited, tamper-resistant bait station.

MADISON, Wisc. — Bell Laboratories introduces the T1 Mouse, a pre-baited, tamper-resistant bait station.

T1 Mouse is pre-baited, saving PMPs valuable service time. Technicians simply place the bait station where mice travel and let the 1-ounce extruded bait blox do its work. Because the station is disposable, it can be left at the account and thrown away when the bait is consumed, eliminating the need for return visits.  And, T1 Mouse is child- and dog-resistant, a key factor when using it in residential accounts.

“T1 Mouse gives PMPs and residents a degree of comfort when baiting in homes, apartments and other residential accounts,” said Suzy Pursell, Bell’s product manager. “We’ve built in a lot of features to make this mouse control tool residential-friendly.”   

The 1-ounce extruded bait blox contains the acute active ingredient bromethalin, which kills house mice in a day or two, Bell Labs reports. With bromethalin, house mice stop feeding after consuming a toxic dose, plus there is low risk of secondary poisoning.

T1 Mouse, while ideal for use indoors, also can be used outdoors within 50 feet of buildings accessible to children and dogs.  Sold in 1- and 4-pack cartons, T1 Mouse is a “great way to boost walk-in sales in distributor showrooms,” Pursell said. “It’s also a convenient product for use in residences by vector control programs in city and county municipalities.
