Excerpt
The advent of anticoagulant rodenticides in the early 1950s undoubtedly marked a turning point in rodent control. These substances have two main advantages in.comparison with the acute poisons. First, when used in appropriate concentrations, anticoagulants do not produce symptoms in the rodent that cause it to stop feeding before a lethal dose has been ingested. This characteristic makes the complete eradication of discrete infestations possible, provided that baiting is efficient and continued over a long enough period. Second, birds are relatively resistant to anticoagulants, and although all mammals are affccted they generally acquire a lethal dose only after feeding on the bait on more than one occasion; moreover, vitamin K, is a powerful antidote if it is administered in time. Thus accidental deaths involving anticoagulants are easier to prevent. Their main disadvantage is that bait must usually be laid down more often than in treatments with acute poisons, but this is only apparent if the latter are conducted without pre-baiting, in which case there would he an accompanying loss of effectiveness.
