Using Rat Poison and Rat Bait to kill rats

Clermont poisoned rat image

Rat Poison   is a temporary solution at best. At worst, it leaves dead rats inside the attic where they cannot be retrieved and new rats continue to enter the home. The photograph above shows a dead rat and blue-tinged droppings from having ingested poison.
Why Poison Is A Poor Choice for Controlling Mice and Rats

  • 1). rodent problems are building problems Rats inside a home is caused by the home having entry points allowing rodent entry. If these areas are left alone, new rats will eventually replace the poisoned rats


  • 2). a poisoned rat or mouse will NOT leave the structure to die outside while it searches for water
    Nothing attracts a rat like a rat. An attic that has an active rat problem or even a past rat problem will carry a rat scent. Other rats in the viscinity will be driven to join these rats.


  • 3). posion would have to be coninuously applied to continue killing new rats
    Rats follow the scent of previously infested homes. The droppings and waste of the poisoned rats will continue attracting new rats. A rat problem addressed only with poison will never solve the issue.

  • 1). make the landscaping as neat as possible, with all trees cut away from roof


  • 2). find the entry points, concentrate the search along the eave... and seal these entry points with steel

  • 3). load the attic with large snap rat traps


  • 4). clean out attic to remove rodent scent factors

    Rat bait and poison: Metal Orlando phosphides have been used as a means of poisoning rats and are considered single-dose fast acting rodenticides (death occurs commonly within 1-3 days after single bait ingestion). A bait consisting of food and a phosphide (usually zinc phosphide) is left where the rodents can eat it. The acid in the digestive system of the rodent reacts with the phosphide to generate the toxic phosphine gas. This method of vermin control has possible use in places where rodents are resistant to some of the best rat poison anticoagulants, particularly for control of house and field mice; zinc phosphide baits are also cheaper than most second-generation anticoagulants, so that sometimes, in the case of large infestation by rodents, their rat population is initially reduced by copious amounts of zinc phosphide best bait applied, and the rest of rat population that survived the initial fast-acting poison is then eradicated by prolonged feeding on anticoagulant bait. Inversely, the individual rodents, that survived anticoagulant bait poisoning (rest Orlando population) can be eradicated by pre-baiting them with nontoxic Orlando bait for a week or two (this is important to overcome bait shyness, and to get rodents used to feeding in specific areas by specific food, especially in eradicating rats) and subsequently applying poisoned bait of the same sort as used for pre-baiting until all consumption of the bait ceases (usually within 2-4 days). These methods of altering rodenticides with different modes of action gives actual or almost 100% eradications of the rodent Orlando population in the area, if the acceptance/palatability of baits are good (i.e., rats feed on it readily).
     

    Orlando rats poison

    Second generation Orlando rat bait agents are far more toxic than first generation. Best rat poisons are generally applied in lower concentrations in baits (usually in order 0.001 - 0.005%), are lethal after a single ingestion of bait and are also effective against strains of rodents that became resistant to first generation anticoagulants; thus, the second generation anticoagulants are sometimes referred to as "superwarfarins".Sometimes, anticoagulant rodenticides are potentiated by an antibiotic or bacteriostatic agent, most commonly sulfaquinoxaline. The aim of this association is that the antibiotic suppresses intestinal symbiotic microflora, which are a source of vitamin K. Diminished Orlando production of vitamin K by the intestinal microflora contributes to the action of anticoagulants. Added vitamin D also has a synergistic effect with anticoagulantsIn some countries, fixed three-component rodenticides, i.e. anticoagulant + antibiotic + vitamin D, are used. Associations of a second-generation best rat poison anticoagulant with an antibiotic and/or vitamin D are considered to be effective even against most resistant strains of ras, mouse poison though some second generation anticoagulants (namely brodifacoum and difethialone), in bait concentrations of 0.0025 - 0.005% are so toxic that resistance is unknown, and even Orlando rodents problem in attic resistant to other rodenticides are reliably exterminated by application of these most toxic anticoagulants.
