Laboratory and field evaluation of pyriminyl as a poison for Rattus norvegicus

  • B. D. Rentnison (a1), R. Redfern (a1), A. C. Dubock (a1), J. E. Gill (a1) and C. G. J. Richards (a1)...

Summary

Laboratory tests indicated that the optimum concentration for pyriminyl in rat baits was between 1% and 3%. In field trials in which 0·5% pyriminyl (the concentration in commercial use) was compared with 2·5% zinc phosphide for the control of rats on farms, the pyriminyl treatments were significantly less effective than the zinc phosphide even when the poisoned baits were left down for 7 days instead of 1 day after prebaiting. Both poisons were as effective in medium oatmeal bait as they were in medium oatmeal containing 5% corn oil and 5% sugar.
