What is Bromadiolone?
Bromadiolone is a rodenticide used to kill rats and mice. Anticoagulants like bromadiolone work by preventing the blood from clotting. Unlike some other rat poisons, which require multiple days of feeding by an animal, bromadiolone can be lethal from one day’s feeding. In mammals, bromadiolone works by preventing the body from recycling vitamin K which is needed to clot blood. Once animals run out of vitamin K they can bleed to death. It can take several days for the body’s stores of vitamin K to be exhausted. Therefore, exposed animals may take several days to eventually die.
Rodent baits like Surefire Broma Grain Bait are designed to be attractive to animals. Bromadiolone can be highly toxic to most mammals and birds. Wildlife may eat these baits directly or they may eat a poisoned animal. Because it can take them several days to die, animals that consume a lethal dose may continue to eat the bait before they die. They also may be more susceptible to capture by predators. Wild mammals, birds and other wildlife that eat poisoned rodents may receive a lethal dose. Accumulation of bromadiolone in the tissues of owls, hawkes, and other raptors in the wild has been well documented.
