Arbuda RUN RAT CAKE is used as a rodenticide in urban and farm rodent control and acts by disrupting the normal blood clotting mechanisms causing an increased tendency to bleed.
Death is delayed, occurring within 3 to 10 days after feeding begins.
The rodenticidal properties of bromadiolone were reported in 1976.
It is a second generation anticoagulant that is effective against rats and mice, including those resistant to first generation anticoagulants.
• There is no pain involved so the rodent does not associate their condition with the bait, and will return to feed.
• Anticoagulants are considered "low hazard" to people and animals.
• The delay in onset of symptoms allows for time to prevent serious consequences in the case of accidental poisonings in humans, pets, or wildlife.
• Vitamin K1 is a readily available antidote for anticoagulant poisoning.
