Rodent Baits

Rodent Activity - Choosing The Right Rodent Bait

The level of rodent activity determines the appropriate rodent bait for the job. Do you have a heavy rodent infestation or light rodent infestation? Is the rodent activity persistant and ongoing? Do you want a rodent bait for monitoring purposes only?
We will be glad to assist you in rodent bait selection and application for sucess in any rodent control program.

Types of Baits : Single Feed or Multiple Feed Baits. Single feed baits work faster than multiple feed baits.

Blox and Block Forms : Weatherproof

Pellets and Meal Forms: Non-weatherproof

Soft  Forms: Non-weatherproof, outstanding acceptability by rodents (even with other food sources close by).

Sewer and Burrow Baiting: See individual product labels for restrictions or give us a call.

Types of Active Ingredients

Anticoagulants

Anticoagulants are divided into first generation and second generation anticoagulant baits. The first generation anticoagulants require multiple feedings (multiple-dose) for a lethal dosage, and the second generation anticoagulants (single-dose) require only one feeding for a lethal dosage. Death is delayed with anticoagulants as it disrupts the normal blood-clotting and causes internal bleeding. Even though the death is delayed, it is not painful. The rodents do not associate the anticoagulant with death., so they do not develop bait shyness. The treatment protocol for accidental poisoning is Vitamin K, which is readily available by vets. We always recommend the use of resistant proof bait stations when using rodent baits.Currently, second generation anticoagulant baits can only be sold in 16 lbs or more per EPA.

      1. Second Generation Anticoagulants-These types of rodent baits are our first recommendations, due to their great bait acceptance. They kill rats and mice that are resistant to first generation rodent baits. Common active ingredients available in the USA are bromadiolone, brodifacoum, and difethialone. Rodent baits with these ingredients kill with very little bait consumed. These baits are beneficial for heavy infestations and where there is a high food competition. These baits also are used where there is persistent rodent infestation, and may also be used for occasional invaders.

      2. First Generation Anticoagulants-These are multiple-dose rodent baits. Rodents need several feedings (over 3-10 days and more for mice control) to be effective. These baits must be available continuously until all the rodents stop feeding (this may take 2-3 weeks). These baits have a lower risk for non-targeted animals, since multiple feedings are required. These baits are best for maintenance situations. These baits may be sold in any weight containers.

Non-Anticoagulants

Manner of death varies with non-anticoagulants. Some act as a nerve poison, and other types depletes the calcium from the bones, resulting in death. The ones that we carry are single-dose, with just one dose for a lethal dosage. It is important to use resistant bait stations, because there is no effective antidote if accidental ingestion occurs. You have less of a chance of secondary poisoning with non-anticoagulants as opposed to second geneation anticoagulants.
