Benefits of Selontra® Rodent Bait 

  • Fast colony kill: Controls infestations in seven days in U.S. field trials
  • Efficient use of bait: Allows for shorter baiting programs, less bait to kill populations, and reduced time and waste
  • Effective resistance management: Kills anticoagulant-resistant rodents

Fast colony kill and proven palatability

Mice Consumption: Pre-Baiting, Baiting with Selontra Rodent Bait, and Post-Baiting

BASF U.S. Field Trial – NC Pig Farm (2016).

100% colony control achievedIn spite of attractive food sources (e.g. pig feed), mice readily fed on Selontra rodent bait early in the baiting period.

Roof Rats Consumption: Pre-Baiting, Baiting with Selontra Rodent Bait, and Post-Baiting

BASF U.S. Field Trial – New Orleans, LA (2016).

100% colony control achieved
In spite of attractive food sources (e.g. human food waste, litter, restaurant waste, pet food, etc.), rats readily fed on Selontra rodent bait early in the baiting period

 

Efficient use of bait

Mice Consumption: Pre-Baiting, Baiting with Selontra Rodent Bait, and Post-Baiting
