Current Anti-Coagulant Rodenticides

Warfarin was discovered in the 1950s and started the use of anti-coagulant rodenticides that continues today, six decades later using similar compounds with the same mechanism of action (internal bleeding). The article  on potent new rat poisons, by Tom Knudson, Sacramento Bee (April 17, 2011) focused on, and quoted here, secondary poisoning to wildlife species that has reached a  toxic level that is unacceptable to environmentalists.

"Over the years, rat poison has spared state residents untold filth and disease. But a new generation of highly toxic, long-lasting poisons is killing not only rats, mice and ground squirrels, but whatever feeds on them, too.

Researchers say the federal government has been slow to respond to the problem, which has been building for more than a decade. This June, after years of study, regulations take effect nationwide banning the most toxic, long-lasting rat poisons from hardware stores, big box home improvement centers and other consumer outlets.

Companies make the compounds super-lethal because many rats and mice have grown resistant to older poisons, such as warfarin. The new products are so toxic their use is forbidden in farm fields and restricted in and around homes, warehouses and other confined locations."
