Second generation anticoagulants are the most effective rodenticide baits against rats and mice on the market. VERTOX Weather Resistant Rodenticide Bait Blocks contain the active BRODIFACOUM which is one of the strongest second generation anti-coagulants PelGar produces. A 250 gram rat only needs to consume 1.3 grams of finished product to receive a lethal dose, this makes it the first choice in most countries for rat control.
Once a lethal dose of poison has been eaten by the rodent, there is a lag period. This normally takes three to four days, after which the blood will no longer be able to clot and any haemorrhaging inside the body will lead to death. The great advantage of the lag period is that rodents never associate the bait they have eaten with the symptoms of poisoning they go through. This means it is possible to attain 100% control of the population as the rodents will continue to feed on the bait, ignorant of the fact it is killing them.
Rats in particular respond to the same five food “tastes” that we humans do, therefore it is important to produce a balanced bait that rodents will want to eat. PelGar International Ltd draws on the in-depth knowledge and experience of its research team, who have studied rodent biology and behaviour for many years. PelGar know that rats and mice will feed for longer if the bait has a specific moisture content, tastes sweet and has a tempting aroma. VERTOX Bait Blocks are manufactured using top quality food ingredients and flavours giving the bait its highly attractive aroma and palatability, which rats and mice can not resist. This is the reason PelGar rodenticides such as VERTOX Weather Resistant Rodenticide Bait Blocks are some of the most effective and efficient baits on the market.
Vertox Weather Resistant Rodenticide Bait Blocks are ideal for use in wet and damp conditions and remain fresh for longer. Vertox Bait Blocks remain highly palatable after several days soaked in water in warm and damp conditions (common in Singapore and SE Asia). Formulation contains moisture balancing preservatives to ensure maximum weatherability in tropical climates.
Vertox Weather Resistant Rodenticie Bait Blocks do not mould under damp and wet conditions unlike other products in the market. This is important as rats and mice will not touch mouldy baits. Excellent durability up to 6 months – outlasting all other products in warm and damp. Switching to Vertox Bait Blocks can save pest controllers money by requiring less servicing and the need to replace the baits every week in damp conditions.
