I opened fresh box and laid it where pack of 3 rats come every evening. Watched it all through the window. Not the sniff. Not very happy with it. Clean sweep by criminals from Talon, Yates, whoever makes an sells it.
Purchased in October 2020 at Coles.
I had couple of rats in my courtyard, bought few packets of this with the confidence that it wil work.
But nothing happened, i waited for days, a week and finally gave up hope.
Don't waste money, just go for some other products.
Purchased in May 2020 for $35.00.
Wish it worked
Unfortunately for some reason mice didn't eat this product, I moved most food products that mice could eat thru but still didn't eat mice bait, really can't understand why.
Oh well damn!
Can rats become immune to Talon poison?
As I own horses, rats turn up periodically in my feed shed. When I first used these pellets that has splashed across the front of the box "one feed" and sure enough the rats died. However, now they have a great feed and keep coming back for more. I see they are eating it as the scat is blue. If I forget to put it out, they raid the box and chew a hole through the box to access the pellets. I don't think it is doing a very good job anymore.
Mischief of Mice
Upon returning from a 5 week holiday I discovered a mischief of mice had made their nest in my garage, among cardboard storage boxes, and I could hear them scurrying around in the ceiling. This infestation was due to a food source they found in the garage; a box of pasta was left out. (Perhaps the mice were auditioning for a sequel Ratatouille movie?)
I used Selleys TALON Rat & Mouse Killer as directed, placed the 25gm boxes in the roof and garage, forewarned those neighbours who had pets and within a few days they were found DEAD, away from...the nest! Even when the food supply was removed these mice still had an appetite to eat this bait. ALL cautionary information regarding this bait is printed on each individual box for your reading. There is also a note to Physicians and Vets on the package. For those with a food source of bulk dog or chook food stored in their sheds as my good neighbours have, I recommend this product to reduce your mice problem. [+] Individual 25gm boxes
Taking too long
I have used one box of pellets. Every morning there is more eaten. I thought that if I put mouse poison out, the mouse would be gone within a day or two. It's now almost a week and it's still around.
I have brought the pallets, 3 packets....... i put them around the house, around 9 boxes i open them up and left pellets at the entrance... when i went to check on them the next day most of those 9 boxes were gone. I put more out to replace them. those went i used the rest up as it seems these guys were hungry for them. all 18 packets went within the week. However, i noticed there are more mice droppings around (after i cleaning the house). i went to buy some more used them still seeing this 1 mice and droppings.
Slack attack by me not a good idea.
Have noticed rats on evening time running along top of fence again. On checking my bait stations 4 out of 5 were empty, so have recharged them again and I am sure if I have the same results as before with Talon the rats will soon be gone again. Vic L
Proven rat killer
We've been using this product for many years and have found it to be the most effective rat/mouse baits on the market. I would recommend you using containers to put the pellets in which are then nailed to floor joints etc so the rats cannot knock the pellets down where domestic pets can eat them. We prefer the pellets but have used talons other products. Quick, effective and always reliable. Watch out for smelly dead rats though - they like to hide in difficult to reach places. Better a dead rat than a live one!
It really works.
Bit expensive but does the job.
