A new series of selective rodenticides
A new series of target-specific, single-dose rodenticides has been discovered by Rohm and Haas Company (Peardon 1972; Peardon et al. 1972). One compound, RH-787, best exemplifies the balance of desirable qualities of a good rodenticide. It is effective against a broad spectrum of pest rodents, has a desirable margin of safety in non-target animals, is well accepted in baits, causes no secondary hazard problems and is effective against ''Warfarin-resistant" (anticoagulant-resistant) rats. This material will become commercially available upon receipt of registration from the EPA.
