Advantages for you

Pest Control Operators

With Selontra® it is possible to control rodent infestations in as few as 7 days, up to 3-times faster than with anticoagulants. Therefore, Selontra® is your best choice for all situations, where each day counts:

  • Highly automated industrial production plants
  • Food processing -storage and retail-
  • Restaurants, cafes, and hotels
  • Schools, Kindergartens, Residential areas, hospitals and other sensitive situations

Your customers will be very satisfied when you control the rodents much quicker than before.

Selontra® can reduce the number of visits/inspections needed to control a rodent infestation, reducing treatment costs significantly and saving you time.

When you are dealing with sites that have a high risk of re-invasion and when other methods of control have proven insufficient , Selontra® can be used in a permanent baiting strategy, if permitted in your country.


  • Protecting the biosecurity on your livestock farm is a key requirement and farm processes may leave only a small-time window for rodent treatment, e.g. in between flocks.
  • For stored harvest: when there is rodent invasion, post-harvest protection is an urgent requirement.
  • With Selontra®, rodents will then also stop contaminating and consuming your harvest much quicker.
  • Selontra® stops the waste of resources (bait and harvest/food which rodents consume/contaminate on your farm).

Businesses benefiting from Selontra® rodent control:

Industrial production plants (high tech production sites, IT hardware, pharmaceutical and biotechnological production). By gnawing on electrical cables, rodents can cause shortages and shut down entire production lines. For your plant, fast rodent control is at the essence.

Restaurants, cafes, hotels and food processing (storage and retail).

The food you are storing, preparing and even the waste are attractive food sources for rats and mice. These rodents threaten to contaminate your premises. Protect the reputation of your business with quicker and efficient rodent control.

Schools, kindergardens, hospitals, residential areas.

Thrown-away food is an attractive food source for rats and mice. That is why rodents are often found in and around buildings and facilities. Your school, kindergarten, hospital or residential area requires scrutiny by your pest control service provider. Whenever you detect rodent activity, you need a fast solution.
