    Rat bait

    Hey team, I used to buy my Rat bait from a commercial supplier in Auckland.
    But they have decided to only sell to commercial trappers etc....

    Does anybody here have access to commercial supply of rat bait?
    It would be so very British of you if you could supply bulk rat bait at better than Bunnings prices!!!


    Cheers, 40mm

    P.S. Private message me if you prefer not to supply the whole world.....

    The irony being that 1080 frequently misses target species so wouldn't be any use!

    Any farm supplier should have bags of brodi for use in bait stations or tunnels.
