Gel bait has a fatal attraction for mice

MOUSE bait will stay just where it is needed, minimising the risk of feed contamination by using a gel formula, claims manufacturer Sorex.

The mice cannot carry the gel bait away and it remains moist and palatable from -20C to 54C (-4F to 129F), it adds.

Sorex Gel can be delivered by a simple squeeze where signs of rodents are found. The company recommends that baiting stations should be inspected and replenished daily initially, then every two to three days, continuing until feeding ceases.

A tube that contains 60 doses costs £9.75 (0151-4207151).
