Regulation changes for the use of rodent baits came into effect on the 1st March 2018 and will affect how the general public (amateur usage) are able to buy and use these products. This will affect all ANTICOAGULANT based products
Firstly, the pack size is being reduced in weight. The maximum package size for Rat bait will be 300g for Wax Block type and 150g for Grain/Pasta type. The maximum size for Mouse bait will be 100g for both types.
Secondly, the active ingredient concentration is also being reduced from 50ppm to 25ppm.
All bait must be contained within a tamperproof bait station when in use and kept in a secure place during storage.
Where it is unsafe to use poison, Cage or Spring Traps may be a viable alternative.
