Bruce from Sheldon, Sc writes,
What happenes if a non-target species consumes a rodent poisoned with Bromethalin?
Rats that have eaten the bait and then die should be removed and disposed of if they are found. Animals that eat exposed carcasses will usually have to eat many carcasses before they receive enough bait to have a reaction, but a secondary poisoning is possible. Bromethalin is a neurotoxin and there is no antidote if a nontarget animal consumes the bait. If you have children or pets, it is recommended that you use a bait containing Bromadiolone, such as Contrac Blox, since every doctor and vet has the antidote, which is Vitamin K1.
