Lars: rodent bait stations

Lars i tried to email you, but you apparently aren't a comcast customer anymore. -S

According to the label,
http://tinyurl.com/ch8uj
it doesn't appear that boric acid is the main pesticide, unless they consider it to be part of the filler/bait and hid it in the inert ingredients list.
Also, where does one get a key to open a protecta LP rodent bait station? Our former pest control company left them behind, I'd like to refill them with tomcat bait blocks, instead of having to buy new bait stations. Any thoughts on if delta dust is safe enough for armatures to use? I plan on just using a duster to pump it through the crawl space vents.
Thanks

Hmm My google search may of brought up an old label. I would think what you found is the newer one. N-ethyl Perfluorooctanesulfonamide (Sulfuramid) is used professionally, like boric acid is a slow stomach poison, but without the BA build up. It is very slow acting though, but if they are feeding on it they will die out. Depending on the nest population it can be over two weeks worth of foraging. :) Also, where does one get a key to open a protecta LP rodent bait station? :) Our former pest control company left them behind, I'd like to refill them :) with tomcat bait blocks, instead of having to buy new bait stations.

Send an address and I'm sure I can come up with a key for you. You can use a screwdriver if need be, pry towards the center of the station while lifting up. There are two tabs that will need prying on each side.
