Rat poison

    Recommended Posts

    Can any of you pest controllers please recommend a commercially available rat poison that actually works. Or is it better to ask my farmer for a bit of his.

    I normally prefer to trap and shoot rats but have come across a situation where these methods are out of the question.

    Thanks in advance.

    Anything with Difenacoum, Bromadiolone or Brodicicoum (internal only).  There are others, but they tend to be more expensive, less commonly available and/or not required.  Trade names of products are irrelevant, check the contents, these ingredients are common and available at DIY stores, Garden Centres, etc etc.

    USE PROPERLY, watch for resistance, never let the bait run out, use plenty, check REGULARLY. 

    :good:

    Thanks Dekers, I used Jaguar in the pink blocks as suggested by oldypigeonpopper. The effect was almost instant but I baited daily until no bait was being taken and touch wood 6 weeks on no sign/sound of rats. Just the slowly fading odour of the bodies now.

    You can't use Brodifacoum outdoors - this is illegal !!!

    hello, has much cleared out most of the rats in the grain dryer barn, those that hide in the air tunnels will soon be shifted when we give them a clean through with some drain rods and screw end:lol:
