Used in rat and mouse control products, Bromethalin functions differently than other popular rat poison products. In many commonly used products, vitamin K levels are kept from rising to normal amounts, and the pests essentially end up hemorrhaging due to the effects that result from their blood not being able to clot. Bromethalin products do not function by changing blood clotting capabilities, and instead are ingested and then act on the target pestsí central nervous system. This difference in functionality also means that products with Bromethalin as the active ingredient will work faster, and show signs of population reduction much quicker that alternative products.
Rat baits and poisons, used frequently in homes, dorms, commercial places, and businesses, are a great way to fight against a rat or mouse infestation issue. Most effective against Norway rats, roof rats, and the common house mouse, these baits can be place inside bait stations, and begin reducing populations in only a day or two. By placing the Bromethalin-based baits inside a bait station, this ensures the bait stays in place and remains available for multiple rodents to feed on, and is also a safety precaution against unwanted contact and ingestion from pets. Bromethalin does not have an antidote and pets can be susceptible to lethal poisoning if not carefully placed and monitored, following all recommended precautions and instructions. Bait stations are designed to be tamper resistant, and can provide the peace of mind that pets, children, and non-target wildlife will remain safe, and unable to access the rat poison.
Generally, rat and mouse control products with Bromethalin can be used indoors and outdoors. The baits are designed to be all-weather, and when combined with bait stations, are even more protected from the elements. In outdoor placements the baits should be relatively near to the building, and it is also important to inspect your home or structure to ensure that best practices for exclusion are in place to prevent any new infestations from occurring.
