Randy from New Mexico writes,

Is it true that Talon actually decays the rodent body from inside out, thereby limiting the smell associated?

I was told that this product would minimize the dead mouse smell, does that have any truth to it?


Actually the fact that rodent poisons dry the animals up after dying is an old wives tale that has been passed around for years. There is only one bait that is relatively new to the market that due to its form of killing the rodent can somewhat make that claim for less smell as it dehydrates the rodents. That product is Rat X and works well in comparison to the other baits on the market in kill effectiveness.
