Pest control safer with bait boxes

BAIT boxes that make pest control easier and safer are being offered free with Slaymor bait from Ciba Animal Health.

The boxes provide a secure unit for the bait when a padlock is used to prevent tampering. They can be sited to ensure maximum effect against rodents and to protect bagged silage, feed and cereals, claims Ciba.

Each box that measures 32cm by 24cm (12.6 x 9.4in) and is 9cm (3.5in) deep comprises three compartments for rodenticide and has a tunnel that allows easy access for the largest rodent.

A 12kg bucket of Slaymor costs about £36 from suppliers. (01223-833621)
