Following on from my post last month which discussed the imminent introduction of Label Changes for Rodenticides; we have just received our first batch with the new labelling that uses the active ingredient Brodifacoum.
This will allow the control of rat infestations in areas where control has been almost impossible due to resistance issues. A genetic mutation which is particularly difficult to control is L120Q, commonly known as the ‘Hampshire’ and ‘Berkshire’ resistances.
Following completion of the appropriate risk assessments we believe that we will be able to use these ‘new’ products to quickly gain control post harvest on a number of our rural customer’s sites . Check Services Ltd will be introducing procedures specifically for use of Brodifacoum around buildings, including more regular follow up visits and detailed inspections for carcasses. There is already an increased emphasis on managing the environment and this will need to continue as part of an Integrated Pest Management ( IPM ) system.
