How and why EradiBait® works

Why EradiBait® works:

The specific mode of action of EradiBait® and it's inherent safety to non-rodents is based on a range of factors unique to rodents:

  • rodents are opportunistic feeders and can consume up to 10% of their body weight.
  • rodents cannot vomit or regurgitate.
  • rodents have a unique digestive system in which the caecum (sack between large and small intestine) plays an active role.

How EradiBait® works:

  • EradiBait® is consumed as a food source as part of a rodent’s natural eating habit.
  • after ingestion dehydration commences causing blood thickening & circulatory collapse.
  • rodents become lethargic, retreat to their burrow where they lapse into a coma and die.
How to use EradiBait® and how much is required

For most effective control EradiBait® must be the primary food source available to the rodent – following these simple rules will ensure success:

  • clear away all other food sources from the area to be treated.
  • bait all areas where rodent activity is seen - particularly along runs and around holes.
  • keep bait dry as wetting may reduce effectiveness.
  • continue to bait until rodent activity ceases.

Effective control is achieved with up to 40-60 grams of product per rat and 10-15 grams per mouse.

Pack sizes available:
EradiBait® - 3kg, 7kg.

What to expect:

  • rodent activity declines as death occurs within 4 to 7 days of regular feed intake - sightings reduce as rodents generally die in their burrow.
  • faecal droppings become bleached in colour & larger in size*.
  • an absence of smell from decomposition due to dehydration – similar to mummification.

*Change in colour and size of the faecal pellets are an indicator of product acceptance and consumption and can be up to 3 times larger than pellets from non-treated rodents.
