Sapphire paste is a highly attractive bait packed with peanut oils and cereals making it very palatable to rodents ensuring infestations are controlled fast. The strength of Sapphire Paste25 offers the user a great solution to control large infestations of rats quickly when other baits might not work.
Each 150g pouch contains 15 x 110g paste sachets enough for 2-3 rat bait points.
Medium to high infestations requires a number of bait points. Bait refills may be required to replenish any bait taken. Once bait-take has stopped, the infestation has been controlled, so bait must be withdrawn from the bait stations and disposed of correctly. Always read the label.
Sapphire paste must be used with a secured tamperproof bait station.
Preventative measures for rodent control are essential, being able to act early, knowing how to prevent and control a rodent infestation is key. New laws came into effect in April 2016, restricting certain rodenticides to professional certified users only. This has meant a change to the products available for ‘garden farmers’ to purchase. Pack sizes of baits are now limited to 1.5kg, however, we can still offer a range of products from bait stations, pastes, blocks and traps. With a controlled approach these pack sizes should be enough to keep rodents under control, and if they are not successful a professional pest controller should be consulted.

Always have a planned approach
Always record quantity of bait used and where its placed
Always use enough baiting points
Always collect and dispose of rodent bodies
Never leave bait exposed to non-target animals and birds
Never fail to inspect bait regularly
Never leave bait down at the end of the treatment
