“These days, rodenticides based on Difenacoum are licensed in Britain for amateur use indoors and outdoors. Any creature feeding on the carcass of a rat poisoned with Difenacoum or any other coumarin-based anticoagulant will die, and so on through the food chain. Simply laying such a toxic bait indoors will not prevent its escape into the wild, because of rats, like people, live both inside and out. As Difenacoum is easily available online, there is no way that its use can be monitored.”
“Now that I have made public the fact that I have rats, I may be prosecuted. It is an offense for any landowner knowingly to let rats live on their property.”
Boom! Germaine with the touchdown. I’m a big fan of rats… I have been toying with the idea of training one to search and point to rat holes on structures. That would sell.
