  • Kills rats and mice in 2 or more days after consuming a lethal dose
  • Rodents will cease feeding after consuming a lethal dose, requiring less bait to be used compared with other anticoagulant baits
  • Each Block kills up to 12 Mice, based on no-choice laboratory testing.
  • Formulated with an optimal blend of ingredients and low wax content for maximum palatability and weatherability

Tomcat with Bromethalin Bait Chunx contains the premium active ingredient Bromethalin, excellent for proven control of high rodent populations and severe infestations. Bromethalin is an acute, non-anticoagulant active that will begin to kill rats & mice in 2 or more days after consuming a lethal dose, faster than anticoagulant baits. Due to a quick knockdown when compared to anticoagulants, more rodents can be controlled with less bait. Motomco's unique, proprietary extrusion process produces Bait Chunx with multiple edges that appeal to a rodent's desire to gnaw. Chunx are made with food-grade ingredients and small amounts of paraffin for a highly palatable bait. Each block kills up to 12 mice, based on no-choice laboratory testing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tomcat Bait Chunx If you live in Sunny Florida be sure to get the green blocks not the weather proof ones these swamp rats won't touch the weatherproof coated ones and the Tomcat bait boxes that take 8 blocks works the best also it will get rid of the pesky rascals and quickly to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sure works on Voles. I tried the Tomcat with Diphacinone chunx last year for my Vole lawn infestation with good results but appear to have even better results this year with the Tomcat with Biomethalin Chunx. Every winter they move in my yard and live under the snowbanks. We had a good melt the other day and I picked up nearly 100 dead voles.

Does this product really work and how will i know if the rats die..i just put out some blocks of this for the rat mice problem i have and want to know how this works and if it works? I put like 3 inside and 3 i need to put more out

Asked by: Prissy britches
This product contains Bromethalin, which is one of the most effective rodenticide active ingredients available. It works on the rodent's nervous system, preventing them from processing energy. Because of this mode of action, it works faster than other types of bait. You will usually see signs of dead rats or mice within 48 hours or less. Rats are burrowing animals, so they will often return to their underground burrows and die there, so you may not physically see them. However, you should see less signs of rodent activity (droppings, gnawing, burrowing, etc.) once the population is reduced. 1 block of Tomcat with Bromethalin Chunx will kill up to 12 mice or at least 2 rats, so 6 blocks is a good place to start. However, you may need to put more out depending on the size of infestation or the type of rodent.

Is this product harmful to dogs or cats that eat a mouse that has eaten the bait?

Asked by: Farm blonde
There are no known reports of animals becoming ill or dying as a result of "secondary poisoning" from a rodent bait containing Bromethalin, which is the active ingredient in this particular product. Bromethalin works on the rodents' nervous system, rather than thinning their blood like other anticoagulant baits. Because of the mode of action, Mice consume less bait and they begin to die faster, which reduces the risk of secondary poisoning.

I put out a bait station under my cabin. 8 bait cube disappear and they build a nest in the station is it working. 

Asked by: Mobetta
Make sure that the bait Chunx are properly secured in the station using the rods provided. This will prevent rodents from moving the bait outside the station. Rodents generally feel safe and secure under cover and away from predators, which is why you might see them trying to build a nest inside the station. 8 bait cubes should be enough to control a fairly large population. With Bromethalin, you should see signs of dead mice relatively quickly, but it may take up to 48 hours for them to die.

Once I place the bait how long will it last before it is  ineffective ( does it go bad ?) 

Asked by: Rhett1973
The active ingredient in the bait (the actual poison) will remain effective for quite a long time (over a year), however, the inert ingredients in the bait will start to lose freshness, making it less attractive to rodents. If left out too long, rats and mice won't want to eat the bait and it won't be of any use. We generally recommend keeping fresh bait available whenever possible and changing it after about a month. Keeping bait in a station, where it's sheltered from the elements, and also protected from being accessed by people and other animals, will help keep the bait fresh longer as well.

Will this have any side effects on small dogs if put in their mouth but not consumed. 

Asked by: Ljbo
Although it is unlikely that a dog will get enough of the active ingredient, bromethalin, to reach a lethal dose by licking the blocks, the response to a poison can vary greatly between individuals. Factors such as age, health, dog weight, gender and breed can affect the degree of toxicity. Therefore, any accidental exposure to rodenticide bait warrants a call to Poison Control or a veterinarian if the owner is concerned. The best way to prevent exposures is to store the product out of the reach of pets and to use the rodenticide in tamper-resistant bait stations. The Tomcat Rat Killer and Tomcat Mouse Killer bait stations having the “Tier 1” designation on their packaging have passed the testing for child and dog resistance required by the EPA for this designation. Please keep in mind that “tamper-resistant” or “dog resistant” does not mean “tamper-proof” or “dog proof,” and that pets should not be allowed unsupervised access to an area where bait stations are used.

We have rat infestation in our chicken coop   If the chickens eat the rat droppings of the poisoned rat will the chickens get sick or die

Asked by: Reedman
While it is possible, it is highly unlikely that a chicken consuming occasional rodent fecal matter would also be poisoned by bromethalin. Here’s why: Based on reported LD50 (amount of a chemical that is lethal to 50% of test animals) value (8 mg/kg bw), a 2.2 kg (5 lb) chicken would need to ingest approximately 17 mg of technical bromethalin to reach the LD50. If a rat consumes a full block of Tomcat with Bromethalin, it would ingest 2.8 mg of technical bromethalin. To be very conservative, we could assume that most of the technical bromethalin was excreted into the feces, meaning 2.8 mg distributed across all the total fecal matter. Since 2.8 mg bromethalin is significantly less than the 17 mg bromethalin to reach the chicken LD50, it is unlikely that the chicken would be poisoned. A few factors would change this: if there are many more rats (say ~10x) or if rodent fecal matter is serving as the primary food source for the chicken, then the outcome may be altered. Please note, this analysis is purely an estimate based on factors that are difficult to foresee or are unknown. Please use the information with sound judgement and do not extrapolate before consulting with a toxicology expert. There is no testing that evaluates if consuming the droppings would cause harm in chickens, therefore, the most conservative course of action should be taken, including separating the chickens from the area during the rodent control effort if possible or regularly cleaning the rodent droppings. Rodents can carry many types of disease-causing agents that have the potential to infect humans, chickens, and other animals ( of these can be transmitted through contact with droppings and/or urine or inhalation of dust, so please take the appropriate precautions when cleaning up rodent droppings.
