Should I be concerned about secondary poisoning when using Contrac Blox?
I am worried the neighbors cat may eat a poisoned rodent. I will be using Protecta Bait Stations.
The risk of secondary poisoning with Contrac Blox
is very minimal. A rodent only consumes a very small amount of bait at a time and passes it very quickly only keeping a smaller amount in their liver until they succumb to the effects of the bait. A cat would have to actually eat 20-30 rodents that have consumed the bait for it to have an effect. In most cases well fed domesticated animals will not actually eat a mouse or a rat that they come across. Instead they will play with it, chew it and then leave it behind.
