Hampshire based rodenticide manufacturer PelGar International has launched a new brodifacoum pasta for professional users to help combat serious indoor infestations.
Vertox Pasta is a ready-for-use bait containing 0.005% w/w of the second generation ‘single-feed’ anticoagulant rodenticide brodifacoum. It is effective against all commensal rodents such as the brown rat and house mouse.
Vertox pasta bait, which has been designed and developed in-house, is a high-calorie, high palatability feed bait that will tempt rodents away from other food sources.
PelGar pasta baits are made from a blend of high quality culinary grade wheat flour, chopped grain, soft lard and peanut flavouring. Brodifacoum based Vertox baits do not cause bait shyness and only a small amount is needed to achieve control.
Vertox pasta bait is presented in 15g unit dose ‘T-bags’ in a 5kg tub or 300g ‘caulking’ tubes for direct spot placement, and is available from Essex Environmental Supplies.
“Brodifacoum single feed baits should not be the first port of call in a rodent control programme – but are useful where baits based on other active ingredients have failed to produce the desired results,” says PelGar’s UK sales and marketing manager Nic Blaszkowicz.
“Our pasta formulations are very popular because they are easy to use and to secure in bait stations. Brodifacoum is a more dangerous active ingredient, so best practice is the key to minimising the risk to non-target animals.”
