MADISON,Wis. — Bell Laboratories introduces the T1 RAT Disposable Bait Station for controlling rats in residential accounts.

T1 RAT is a disposable, pre-baited bait station that can be left at a residential account and thrown away after the bait, a 4-ounce bromethalin block, has been consumed. This sturdy, tamper-resistant bait station is labeled “Kid & Dog Resistant,” having met the highest level of station security and quality based on test protocols established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

“Technicians can place T1 RAT in homes and apartments, as well as commercial accounts,” noted Suzy Pursell, Bell’s product manager. “Plus it can be used indoors and outdoors within 50 feet of buildings accessible to children and dogs.”

Both T1 RAT and the smaller T1 MOUSE are child and dog resistant, but care should always be taken when placing the stations, especially in homes where children or pets are present, Pursell cautioned. “While these bait stations were designed and tested to meet the EPA’s highest level of bait station security, they must always be placed in locations away from easy access by kids or pets,” she said.

Pre-baited T1 RAT holds Bell’s rat-sized bait blox with the active ingredient, bromethalin. Once rats consume a lethal dose, usually in a single night’s feeding, they die in as few as two days. Rats stop feeding after eating a lethal dose which reduces the amount of bait required. With bromethalin, there is also a very low risk of secondary poisoning, Bell Labs reports. T1 RAT saves PMPs valuable service time. With no need to bait the station, technicians simply place it where they’ve seen signs of rats. The see-through plastic lid makes monitoring bait consumption easy. When bait is gone, the station can be discarded, reducing the need for return visits. TI RAT can be placed horizontally or vertically, giving rats access from various angles. Now available, T1 RAT is sold in 1-pack cartons and is labeled for individual sale, making it a desirable commodity for do-it-yourself and distributor showrooms or for public distribution by municipalities.
