Different Types of Rat Poison

There are 5 main different types of rat poison and we have included more details below:

Difenacoum is a multi-feed, second-generation anti-coagulant rodenticide.

The active ingredient is formulated on a food base, typically cereal, to produce a ready to use bait containing 50ppm difenacoum.

In comparison to other rodenticides, difenacoum has a good level of activity against the brown rat, and excellent activity against mice.

Due to the potency of difenacoum to rodents as compared to other non-target species, this active ingredient is particularly useful where pets or livestock are present in the area to be treated.

However, difenacoum is a potent poison to all mammal species and it is essential that all baits should be well protected from non-target animals. The best way to achieve this is by placing the baits in an approved bait box.

As with all anticoagulants, accidental poisoning with difenacoum can be antidoted with vitamin K1.

We stock a few different brands of Difenacoum poisons including Neosorexa and Brigand.

Bromadiolone is a multi-feed, synthetic, second-generation anti-coagulant rodenticide.

The active ingredient is formulated on a food base, usually cereal, to produce a ready to use bait containing 50ppm bromadiolone.

In comparison to other anticoagulant rodenticides, bromadiolone has a good level of activity against the brown rat, and moderate levels of activity against mice.

Bromadiolone is marginally more toxic to non-target species (pets and livestock) than difenacoum.

Bromadiolone is a potent poison to all mammal species and it is essential that all baits should be well protected from non-target animals. The best way to achieve this is by placing the baits in an approved bait box.

Brodifacoum is a single feed, second-generation anti-coagulant rodenticide.

When compared to other anticoagulant rodenticides, brodifacoum poison has a excellent level of activity against the brown rat, and against mice.

Brodifacoum is highly toxic to all mammals and although most poisons containing this active can be used outside around buildings our recommendation is to use it indoors.

Flocoumafen is a single feed, second-generation anti-coagulant rodenticide.

The active ingredient is formulated on a food base, usually cereal, to produce a ready to use bait containing 50ppm flocoumafen.

When compared to other anticoagulant rodenticides, flocoumafen has a excellent level of activity against the brown rat, and against mice.

Flocoumafen is highly toxic to all mammals and can only be used indoors.

Flocoumafen is a lethal poison to all mammal species and it is essential that all baits are only used indoors and they must be well protected from non-target animals. The best way to achieve this is by placing the baits in an approved bait box.

As with all anticoagulants, accidental poisoning with flocoumafen can be antidoted with vitamin K1.

Difethialone is the newest rodenticide active. It is a second generation, single feed, anti-coagulant poison.

The active is mixed with a food base (usually cereal) and is available as a ready to use grain, block or pasta bait.
