Yam tuber contains alkaloids, including dioscorin and cyanide are toxic. This study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of the use of bait blocks yam tubers for mice. Method: This was experimental research, post test was conducted with control group design for 4 groups, namely the concentration of 30%, 50%, and 70% to the total sample examined was 28 mus musculus. Result: The test results showed that there was corelation between the feed block yam tubers with mortality of the mice (p= 0.001). The data was analyzed with univariate and bivariate. Probit analysis obtained bait blocks LC50 and LC90 was 34.024% is 59.298%. In LT50 and LT90 are 2.206E5 minutes 2.018E6 minutes. Conclusion: Conclusions from this research is a block yam tubers have the effect of rodenticides for mus musculus, but it can not effective as rodenticides.
