get ready


The EPA now is moving to curb widespread use of these rodenticides, starting next June. That move, however, could be short-circuited by a lawsuit filed by the multinational corporation the sells d-CON products.

Pesticide manufacturers, applicators and health officials say controlling rats is an important public health goal because they can spread a number of diseases, including hemorrhagic fever, leptospirosis, salmonellosis and rat bite fever.

What are people going to do be carried off by the rats? This government has gone bonkers. as of June 2011 you will not be able to buy these products over the counter. I suppose you will have to call an exterminator and if you can't afford that just learn to live with them. traps are still an option but probably will be out law as inhumane.

Heard on the news this morn, all travelers on a cruise ship were horribly sick. Turns out this rat poison was in their food.

Thanks for the information; I'll be buying poison every week for awhile. The mice would take over my house without poison!
