Directions For Use

BootHill® for the control of Norway rats, Roof rats and House mice indoors and outdoors within 15 metres of buildings (residential, industrial, commercial, agricultural, and public buildings). Rodenticide bait can be placed in tamper-resistant bait stations along the fence line of properties, outside of the 15-metre limit but within a 100 metres of buildings, if the station is securely fastened (e.g., nailed down) to the fence or the ground.

Users should remove clothing immediately if pesticide gets inside. Then wash skin thoroughly and put on clean clothing.

USE LIMITATIONS: Bait MUST be placed either in tamper-resistant bait stations or in locations not accessible to children, pets, livestock or non-target wildlife. DO NOT place bait in areas where there is a possibility of contaminating food or surfaces that come in direct contact with food. Bait stations (tier 3) used for the placement of rodenticide bait indoors, in locations not accessible to pets or livestock must have the following characteristics: (1) be constructed of high-strength material (e.g., metal or injection moulded plastic) and resistant to destruction by children; (2) have an entrance designed so that children cannot reach the bait; (3) have an internal structure that prevents bait from being shaken loose; (4) have an access panel that fastens securely and locks (e.g., metal screw or padlock); and (5) bear the product name, active ingredient, guarantee, registration number, “WARNING POISON”, and the skull and crossbones symbol. Bait stations (tier 2) used for the placement of rodenticide bait indoors, in locations accessible to pets or livestock must have the following characteristics, in addition to those outlined above for tier 3 bait stations: (1) resistant to destruction by non-target animals; and (2) have an entrance designed so that non-target animals cannot reach the bait. Bait applied outdoors and above-ground MUST be placed in bait stations. Bait stations (tier 1) used outdoors, above-ground, in locations accessible to children, pets and non-target wildlife must have the following characteristic, in addition to those outlined above for tier 2 and 3 bait stations: (1) be resistant to destruction or weakening by elements of typical non-catastrophic weather (such as, snow, rain, extremes of temperature and humidity, direct sunshine, etc.

AREAS OF USE: Food Processing, Food Manufacturing, Food Storage and Food Service Areas: For areas not directly related to food processing: Use only in non-food or non-feed area where feed, food, packaging and handling equipment are never opened or exposed. For areas where feed or food is processed, served, or stored: In meat and food processing plants (processing areas), use only when plant is not in operation. Remove or cover all food, packaging material and utensils before placing bait in baiting stations. Remove all baits and dead rodents before reuse of the plant (processing areas include storage and service).

Selection of Treatment Areas: Place bait in locations where rats and mice travel and will most likely find and consume the bait. Placement along walls, in corners, by gnawed openings, in and around burrows, and in concealed locations where rats and mice feed is desirable. Maintain a steady supply of fresh bait. Remove any spoiled or contaminated bait promptly.

APPLICATION DIRECTIONS: Each BootHill Bar consists of a 454 g slab, which is to be broken into 8 pieces (i.e. 56 grams each).

For Norway Rats (Rattus norvegicus) and Roof Rats (Rattus rattus): Norway rats usually inhabit the ground floor of structures and burrow in the ground. They will range approximately 15 to 100 m from their nesting area seeking food and water. Roof rats, however, are excellent climbers and usually infest the upper stories of structures. Hence, special attention must be paid to this species ability to climb by placing baits in the roof rats activity area. For both species, eliminate as much of the naturally occurring food as possible and place 3 to 10 pieces of block (usually at intervals of 5-10 m) within the treatment area. Maintain an uninterrupted supply of fresh bait for at least 10 days, or until signs of rat activity cease.

For House Mice (Mus musculus): House mice are excellent climbers and will infest all floors in a structure. Mice will only range approximately 10 m from their nesting area seeking food. Eliminate as much of the naturally occurring food as possible and place 1 piece of block at intervals of 2-4 m within the treatment area. If a bait placement is not disturbed after several days, move the placement approximately 1 meter. Two (2) pieces of block per placement may be necessary at points of very high mouse activity. Maintain an uninterrupted supply of fresh bait for at least 15 days or until signs of mouse activity cease.

Burrow Application: Place 1-2 pieces of block per burrow.

Note: Replace contaminated or spoiled bait immediately. Collect and dispose of all dead animals and unconsumed bait properly. To prevent reinfestation, eliminate food, water and harbourage as much as possible. If reinfestation occurs, repeat treatment. Where a continuous source of infestation is present, establish permanent bait stations as necessary.

PRECAUTIONS: KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN, PETS AND LIVESTOCK. May be harmful or fatal if swallowed or absorbed through the skin. Chemical resistant gloves must be worn when disposing of dead rodents, bait and empty containers. Avoid contact with eyes, skin or clothing.
