Rodents are difficult to kill with poisons because their feeding habits reflect their place as scavengers. They will eat all small bite of something and wait, and if they don't get sick. They continue. An effective rodenticide must be tasteless in lethal concentrations. And have a delayed effect.
More pronounced anticoagulant/hemorrhagic effects are observed if the calciferol is present. This synergism is mostly used is calciferol low concentration baits. Because effective concentrations of calcciferols are more expensive, than effective concentrations of the most anticoagulants. The historically very first application of concentrations of the most anticoagulants.
In family pets, accidental ingestion is generally considered safe for cats but dangerous for dogs. Additional anticoagulant renders the bait more toxic to pets as well as a human. Upon single ingestion, solely calciferol-based baits are considered generally safer to birds than second generation anticoagulants or acute toxicants (zinc phosphate, bromethalin, fe). Specific antidote for calciferol intoxication is calcitonin, a hormone that lowers the blood levels of calcium.
Metal phosphates have been used as a means of killing rodents 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 phosphate (usually zinc phosphate) is left where the rodents can eat it. The acid in the digestive system of the rodents reacts with the phosphate to generate the toxic phosphine gas. This method of vermin control has possible use in places where rodents are resistant to some of the anticoagulants, particularly for control of house and field mice.
zinc phosphate baits are also cheaper than most second-generation anticoagulants, so that sometimes, in the case of largew infestation by rodents, their population is initially reduced by copious amounts of zinc phosphate bait applied, and the rest of population in initially reduced by copious amounts if zinc phosphate bait applied, and the rest of population that survived the initial fast-acting poison is than eradicated by prolonged feedings on anticoagulant bait.
The baits are placed is strategic locations where the rodents frequently visit. Use of poison, imported chemicals is a part of rodents and pest management.
RODEX treatment uses registered product (Rodenticides (RATOL) which contains main ingredient zinc Phosphate. It’s designed keeping human safety in mind.
