Brodifacoum is a single feed, synthetic, second-generation anti-coagulant rodenticide.
The active ingredient is formulated on a food base, typically cereal to produce a ready to use bait containing 0.005% w/w brodifacoum.
When compared to other anticoagulant rodenticides, brodifacoum has a excellent level of activity against the brown rat, and against mice.
Brodifacoum is extremely toxic to all mammals and is legally only certified for indoor use. This is a very aggressive single feed poison.
Brodifacoum is a potent 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 brodifacoum can be antidoted with vitamin K1.
