Rat poison comes in various different forms and formulations and is becoming harder for the general public to purchase in any other than small pre-packed ready to use sachets.

Rats prefer to eat bait that is highly palatable. The sweeter the bait the longer the rat will feed, rats mainly feed in the dark and baits have added aromas that rats find highly attractive.

The three most common active ingredients readily available are difenacoum, bromadiolone and brodifacoum which are all anti-coagulants. These poisons affect the rodents blood clotting response, so after a few days the rodents will die as a result of internal haemorrhaging. The poison effectively thins the blood to the extent that blood seeps internally from tiny blood vessels and organs quickly resulting in heart failure which ultimately kills the rat. The rodents feel fine, suffering no pain and therefore they continue to feed as normal, consuming a lethal dose before succumbing to the effects of the poison. This is important, as rats in particular will quickly stop eating anything that they associate with danger. In the latter stages of poisoning, the rodents feel lethargic and tend to stay in their nests, where most of them die. The occasional one may die above ground, and you should always search for bodies whilst you are conducting a poisoning campaign.

However, if there is little evidence of bait takes after two weeks, it is unlikely that the treatment will prove to be effective any you should remove the bait and consider another option or bait type.

The rodenticide industry, acting as a whole, has recognised the need to address the concerns surrounding the responsible use of rodenticides and the need to ensure that rodenticides are used correctly and in ways that will minimise the exposure of wildlife. The industry has therefore initiated the Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use (CRRU).
