Steve Henry, CSIRO, says research has showed double strength zinc phosphide mouse bait has a markedly higher mortality rate than the previously available product.

AS THE NSW government continues to pursue its goal of registering the anti-coagulant rodenticide bromadiolone for broadacre use via an emergency permit from the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority the successful applicants for another mouse bait emergency permit have said their product will be available to growers shortly.
