Will Starbar Golden Malrin(fly bait w/Muscamone fly attractant) kill rats like a fly powder can?

Someone told me that "fly powder" will kill rats. I went to the local mill and asked for fly powder and was given Starbar Golden Malrin. It is in crystal form. If sprinkled in & around rat hole entry-ways will it work to kill these rats, or is "fly powder" something altogether different?

Answer:

We apologize, we cannot recommend any fly powder for killing rats as it is not labeled for that use. You can contact Zoecon  800-248-7763 to see if their Golden Marlin fly bait can be used for killing rats. We would recommend to seal the holes with Stuff it Copper Mesh and use the T- Rex snap traps or Protecta Rat Bait Stations with a rodenticide like Fastrac Blox to kill the rats.
