Long term mice control

I was using those blue Contractor blocks for mice for about 5 years. I still have some around.They still gnaw on them occasionally.

They worked good. But I saw they are about 3 times the price now. I wont touch any scam when a manufacturer does that.They dont cost them a penny more to make.
Anyway,
What is the best deal on long term mice blocks for the money now online???Ones that work
and last...The deacon packs are a rip off.

Havoc and Tomcat are good over the counter brands. Same active ingredient as what pros use. Haven’t paid attention to their prices though. Here are some active ingredients to look for: Bromethalin, Bromadiolone, Brodifacoum. These are good single-dose anticoagulants. Diphacinone is a common one but requires multiple feedings.

Hope this helps.

Within the last several years the federal government (EPA) requires that rodenticide be place inside tamper proof bait stations. As a result some and maybe all of over the counter sales require that a bait station be included. This could be increasing the price.

I do still prefer bait blocks over the meal and pellet baits.

Gemplers is a decent online source, although their prices are not the greatest. I have noticed the price increases too.
