Questions and answers

q: Hi, is this bait poisonous to cats?
a: In short yes, but here's some advice around pets from Pestoff - it's very unlikely if the following precautions are followed: Even small amounts of brodifacoum consumed by pets can cause them adverse health effects and therefore every sensible precaution should be taken to minimize their risk of exposure by way of either primary or secondary poisoning (eating a dead rat). So: Use bait stations which prevent access to baits by pets and children. Keep baiting periods short (about 1 week) and infrequent. Collect and dispose of dead rodent bodies. Don't allow dogs to roam and scavenge. Keep pets well fed and under reasonable watch. Cats which are well fed will not eat rat or possum baits and their limited capacity to consume rodents combined with their higher resistance to brodifacoum, limits their risk. A single dead rat could contain 0.4mg of brodifacoum if it ate 20 grams of bait. A small 8kg dog with an LD50 of 1mg/kg would need to eat 20 of these rats but less than half that number could cause a prolonged period of ill health. The risk for cats is similarly small, although they have a higher resistance to brodifacoum. It is impossible to predict where poisoned animals will die. However, this is very often outside and when they die in ceiling space or wall cavities, the smell tends to last only a week or so.

q: Is this bait effective on wallabies?
a: If enough possum bait was consumed it would certainly have an effect, however as this is not a designated use of Pestoff they would not support it at all.

A cost effective way to buy bait, compared to the prices for small quantities from elsewhere. Good small sized pellets too.

Excellent product. Hasn't eliminated the possums but they are definitely under control. We can now sleep at nights without the noisy creatures running all over our roof.

We must have lots of rats because the stuff disappeared fast. A few dead rats on the drive. You need a bag a plastic cleaning gloves to stay safe as it is stronger than building centre rat bait.

The possums raised my garden. I have now been refilling the traps/stations every two or three days. Found a dead possum in the driveway. So the bait is going somewhere and I have dead possums.
