In this article, we have highlighted some of the best rat and mouse poison (aka Rodenticide baits poison) to use against the rodents your are facing.
Baits poisons (Rodenticides) are not designed for instant kill. The idea is for the rodent to mistake them as food, consume it and hopefully bring these poison back to the nest to share with the rest (it works “behind the scenes”). Hence when bait poison works, it is possible to drastically reduce the infestation.
Bait poison should be used in conjunction with rat traps to help get rid of rat and mouse problems most effectively.

Rats are known to spoil (or destroy) anything that they come across and can cause sleepless nights as they run up and down during the night. And because they can manifest very quickly, actions must be taken to get rid of a rat the moment you spot one at home (see article: Rat vs Mouse).
Like the rat traps, there’s always a possibility that the rats will not fall for it. With the delayed killing effect of a bait poison, by the time the rats figured out that it’s poison, it might already be too late for them.
ALWAYS remember that no rodenticide poison is pet-safe. They CAN and WILL kill pets and other small animals if they consume it. Invest in a tamper-proof bait station if you need to use the rodenticide at home.
