Rodenticides are poisons that use anticoagulants or phosphides to cause rodent death.

Anticoagulants can be single dose (i.e., second generation) or multiple dose (i.e., first generation) rodenticides. Generally, death occurs within one to two weeks after ingestion of lethal amounts. These poisons work by blocking the rodent’s blood clotting ability. In addition, they include chemicals that cause damage to tiny blood vessels, or capillaries, resulting in diffuse internal bleeding. These effects are gradual, developing over several days. In the end, the animal dies calmly, but leading up to death the rodent is likely to experience discomfort and pain. As a result, we believe that the use of anticoagulants is inhumane.

First generation anticoagulants are generally less toxic than second generation products, so they have shorter elimination half-lives, but they also require higher concentrations and consecutive intake over days to be lethal. First generation anticoagulants are marketed under a variety of brands such as Ramik, Rodex, Tomcat and Rozol and contain active ingredients such as warfarin, chlorophacinone, diphacinone or coumatetralyl. Second generation anticoagulant rodenticides, or SGARs, known as “superwarfarins,” are far more toxic than first generation rodenticides so they are applied in lower concentrations. Most are lethal after a single ingestion of bait. SGARs are also available under a variety of different brand names, including d-CON, Havoc, Di-Kill, Jaguar, Hawk, Boot Hill and Hombre. These products contain active ingredients such as difenacoum, brodifacoum, difethialone, flocoumafen, and bromadiolone. Companies that manufacture anticoagulants include Reckitt Benckiser Group plc, Syngenta, Bayer CropScience, BASF, Neogen and Liphatech.

Metal phosphides are considered single-dose fast acting rodenticides; death occurs commonly within one to three days after single bait ingestion. Death is caused by an acid in the digestive system of the rodent that reacts with the phosphide to generate the toxic phosphine gas. Metal phosphides have possible use in places where rodents are resistant to some of the anticoagulants. Zinc phosphide baits are also cheaper than most second-generation anticoagulants. They are marketed under brands that include Prozap, Eraze, and Ridall-Zinc by Neogen, MotomCo and Liphatech, respectively.

Rodenticide manufacturers compete by introducing new products to meet the changing demand of consumers, expansions and investments, acquisitions, and entering into strategic alliances with distributors and companies that have expertise in the rodenticide market. As a result, we believe the degree of competition in the rodenticide market is high. The market is highly concentrated among a few large rodenticide manufacturers, such as Syngenta, Bayer CropScience, BASF, Neogen and Liphatech. Also, there are high barriers to entry into the rodenticide market due to extensive capital investment and regulatory approval requirements.


Trapping is an option for those looking for a non-lethal way to manage a rodent infestation. There are several types of traps including spring, or snap traps, cage traps, glue traps and electronic traps. Often traps merely injure and trap the rodent still alive. Trapped rodents will do anything to free itself, including chewing off its limbs. Also, rats are relatively intelligent animals and can learn to avoid traps. Further, the use of traps is less popular in urban centers and among pest control companies. Therefore, traps are a less common alternative to rodenticides as a form of rodent control. Companies that manufacture traps include Victor, Havahart, Rat Zapper, Real-Kill, J.T. Eaton and others.

Kill Devices

Goodnature self-resetting kill traps, from New Zealand, are becoming widely used in conservation and island areas. Rats are attracted by a long-life lure that triggers a powerful impact that kills animals instantly and more humanely than other products. These traps are easy to install and maintain and can kill up to 24 rats per CO2 canister, thus reducing the amount of man hours needed to maintain the traps.

Animal Fertility Control

Animal fertility control has been in research and development for almost 30 years. GonaCon (GnRH) is the current product for fertility control approved by the USDA. GonaCon is injected into an animal and the animal must receive a booster after two years to maintain efficacy. The formula is typically provided through a dart gun and the animals should be marked so that the booster can be given at a later date. This is an extremely challenging delivery method for any wild animal in a natural environment. ZonaStat-H (PZP), a fertility product used since the late 1980’s for wild horses and burros, is delivered in the same manner as Gonacon. The only oral fertility product on the market is an avian product, developed by Innolytics, LLC in collaboration with the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, and is made specifically for pigeons.
