RodenticidesRodenticides can be classified generally as anticoagulants or non-anticoagulants. Most rodenticides are in the anticoagulant group, and among these another classification can be made between the earliest, “first generation”, active ingredients and others that have been discovered and commercialized more recently. First generation rodenticide active ingredients typically require multiple feedings by a rodent to get a lethal dose. Second generation active ingredients, or so-called “single dose” products can be lethal with a single feeding.
As a practical matter all rodenticides are more effective with multiple feedings, and in most baiting programs the target rodents do feed multiple times. Rodenticide active ingredients also have limitations in how they can be attractive to rodents. Usually multiple pest management tactics, and sometimes more than one rodenticide will need to be integrated to achieve a total solution to a rodent problem.
Good Management Practices and Industry Sanitation Standards generally dictate that rodenticide use at food plants be limited to bait blocks secured on rods in an anchored & secure bait station outdoors. Other formulations such as pellets, place packs, liquid baits or tracking powders can be valuable tools, but consideration must be given to where they are used.

Contrac with LumitrakContrac with Lumitrack, is a single-feeding anticoagulant rodenticide containing the active ingredient, bromadiolone. It contains Lumitrack which is a special additive that makes rodent droppings glow bright green under UV light. With Lumitrack in the bait, PMPs can quickly and easily identify and track rodent movement. Identifying rodent’s movement gives PMPs valuable insight for establishing additional bait placements or determining where exclusionary or sanitation measures are needed to eliminate rodents. Contrac with Lumitrack also helps PMPs track rodent activity in drop ceilings, sub-floors, wall voids and other dark, hard-to-access areas. For ease of use, a hole in the center of the Blox lets technicians place it on bait securing rods in tamper-resistant bait stations, or nail or wire the BLOX in place. It is highly palatable, yet weatherable, Contrac with Lumitrack works well in wet and dry conditions.
