Protecta Sidekick Rat Bait Station and Key
|ePest Hero - Expert Rating|
|Pros:||Heavy-duty pet and child-resistant rodent stations. Can fit standard bait blocks or T-Rex snap-traps. Cheaper than other options.|
|Cons:||Does not contain a built-in weight like the similar EVO Express Rodent Stations to "secure" the station. Rodent bait labels require you to secure these stations prior to use. You can use a zip-tie, adhesive, screw, etc. so children, pets, and wild animals do not move the stations.|
This is one of the most popular professional rodent stations available. I like that it has the flexibility to fit snap-traps or rodent baits.
PRO TIP: When using baits, these stations must be secured. Many professionals prefer to use "Liquid Nails" adhesive and glue these stations to stepping stones to secure them. That way they are still movable by an adult, but difficult for a child, pet, or wild animal to move.
If you wish to use T-Rex traps with this Bait Station you must purchase them separately.
Each order comes with one Protecta Key – more can be purchased from our store for a nominal fee.
Protecta Sidekick Rat Bait Station Details:
Economical Alternative to Non-Tamper-Resistant Bait Stations
Versatile Station holds Rodent Bait or a T-Rex Rat Trap (pictured above).
PROTECTA Sidekick is an economical way to upgrade from using non-tamper-resistant bait stations to the security and high quality of tamper-resistance. It locks when closed and unlocks with Bell's two-prong PROTECTA key.
Constructed from impact-resistant, injection-molded plastic, Sidekick holds up well in temperature extremes.
In the field, it works as both a bait station and a monitoring station. Vertical bait securing rods hold Bell's BLOX securely in the station. As a monitoring station, it holds TRAPPER T-Rex Rat Snap Trap which captures rats as they enter the station.
Easy-to-use Sidekick opens to the side for fast, convenient servicing, even when the station is secured. Its interior corners are rounded for easy cleaning, and a built-in card slot holds the PROTECTA service card.
Sidekick measures 9 1/2" x 8 3/4" with a height of 4 1/2" (approx. 241mm x 222mm x 114mm), ideal for fitting into tight baiting locations. Yet, Sidekick can hold up to two pounds or almost 1 kg of bait.
