Choosing a Bait Station for Household Use

A variety of rat and mouse control products meet our protective safety standards and offer consumers a range of choices of price, weather resistance, and protection to children, pets, and non-target wildlife. When used as directed on the label, these products can help consumers control household rodents while greatly reducing accidental exposure to children, pets, and wildlife. EPA will update this list of products as more rodenticide products meeting current risk mitigation goals are approved.

Always read and follow the directions on the label to reduce accidental exposure to the poison. You can find the labels for these products in our Pesticide Product Label System (PPLS). This resource can help you if the packaging for the product you have has been damaged and you can't read all the directions or if you hear about a product, and you want to find out more about it. You can search by product name, EPA registration number, or company name.
