Why do I need to wear a glove when handling an ORV bait?
An intact bait will not harm you, but the smell, which is objectionable to people, may get on your
skin. If the sachet is broken, pink liquid (vaccine) may be visible. While wearing gloves, you may place the bait in a bag and dispose of it with your regular trash. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after any contact with a bait. If you suspect you may have been exposed to the vaccine please contact your local public health officials at 1–877–RABORAL (1–877–722–6725).
