Safety Products

Please be sure to read the product label of any insecticide you choose to use to get information on the personal protective safety gear you will need. In most situations, it is recommended that you wear long pants, a long sleeved shirt, closed toe shoes with socks, chemical resistant gloves, and goggles. In areas where ventilation is poor, a manufacturer may recommend you wear a mask or a respirator. We have put together two different safety kits that will make selecting the correct safety gear easier for you.

What is Bromethalin?

By DoMyOwn staff

What is Bromethalin?

Bromethalin is a pale, odorless, crystalline solid that was specifically designed in 1985 to address the issue of rodent resistance to anticoagulant rodenticides. Anticoagulants are blood thinning toxins that work over time. Bromethalin, on the other hand, is a highly potent neurotoxin that delivers a fatal dose with just one feeding.

What kind of rodents does Bromethalin target?

Bromethalin is used as an active ingredient in products that target rats, mice, and moles.

How does Bromethalin work to control rodents?

Bromethalin is a neurotoxin which attacks the central nervous system, blocking nerve activity and affecting muscle contraction. Death occurs within 24 to 35 hours after ingestion.


Bromethalin is extremely toxic and should always be handled with care, and kept out of areas where it may be accessible to pets or children. Always read the product label before using any product containing Bromethalin. When using bait formulations, always use a tamper-resistant bait box.
