Abstract

Brodifacoum was fed to three rodent species, viz . M. hurrianae, R. rattus and F. pennanti, using a no-choice feeding trial for 7 days at various concentrations− 0.005%, 0.0025%, and 0.00125%. The compound was found effective, palatable, developed no sign of poison bait-shyness but indicated a slight aversion of poison. The death of the animals was due to pulmonary distress and hemorrhage.
