|Over the past week I've been trialling a rodent bait on a persistant rat infestation at one of my calls. The bait is STORM with the active ingredient flocoumafen. So far its proved its palatability with the rats. The poison can take 10 days before it kills the rodents even though a relatively small amount can kill in a single feed. Its now just a waiting game to see if the rat population dwindles and dies.|
I found this very interesting study online. I hope I have such good results.
