How Does Bromadiolone Rat Poison Work?

Bromadiolone is a popular choice when it comes to rodenticides. It is usually deployed in the form of bait blocks used to eradicate rat or mouse presence. Bromadiolone is an anti-coagulant which means that it avoids blood from clotting. The body does not recycle Vitamin K eventually which leads to rats perishing. The reason why Bromadiolone is so effective is that it will go into effect from just one single feeding. Most bait blocks contain a tiny amount of Bromadiolone, 0.005% to be exact.

When Bromadiolone enters the rat’s body it can take 3-4 days on average for the rat to die. In this time, the rat will die a slow death. Only licensed and certified technicians use these types of poisons because of the attached risks these poisons contain. In the field, these bait blocks are stored in an exterior tamper-proof bait station which can only be opened with a special key to which the technician only has access.

Bait stations are strategically placed around the perimeter of the property. The placement is crucial and determines the eventual results of the rat removal process. Bait stations are placed along the runway of the rat. It is a trail that takes the rat directly from the nest to the next available food source. The bait stations are positioned in such a way that it does not block the path of the rat, yet gives the rat the opportunity to explore. The bait box has an opening through which the rats pass through. Progress can be verified in how much of the bait block is eaten from. Since the bait block has a high rate of success it can be always said that feeding equals perished rats.

Even though the bait stations are secured using a robust system so that nobody can get to them, pets have a chance to lick some of the crumbs that rats can leave behind. When your pet ingests some of the bait, the following signs and symptoms can be observed.

  • Bruising
  • Blood from mouth
  • Muscle weakness
  • Urine with blood
  • Poop with blood
  • Lack of appetite
  • Restlessness
  • Breathing issues
  • Eventual death

Rats are very destructive rodents that can cost homeowners up to thousands of dollars in repair and restoration costs. Rats can get into the property in a number of ways. One of these ways is through foundational gaps found around the base of the building. Foundational gaps occur through years of wear and tear.

As the years go on, cracks get bigger and holes can form which can give the rat enough leeway to squeeze through as rats do not need that much space to get in. Once the rat gets in, other rats can follow which can lead to rat babies and a full-blown infestation.
