Selontra®

Selontra® rodent bait delivers real efficiency for your business.

Benefits

Selontra® rodent bait offers major advantages

  • Can control up to 100% of rodents in as few as 7 days
  • Controls up to three times faster than anticoagulant rodenticides
  • Controls rats and mice, even species highly resistant to anticoagulant rodenticides
  • Provides effective rodent control with as few as two applications
  • Active ingredient, cholecalciferol, is a naturally occurring substance
  • Its unique stop-feed effect prevents rodents from over-consuming and wasting bait
  • Reduced environmental impact
  • Unique mode of action makes development of resistance highly unlikely

Highly palatable even when other attractive food sources are available

Despite the presence of competing food sources, rodents prefer Selontra® rodent bait. In trials, it was 13.2 times more palatable than maize silage, 4.3 times more palatable than piglet feed, and 4 times more palatable than leading rodenticide brands.

Stop-feed technology for increased efficiency

Selontra® rodent bait causes rodents to lose their appetite and stop feeding once they consume a sufficient dose. This allows sub-dominant rodents to feed sooner, leading to faster infestation control with as few as two applications in only 7 days. Conventional anticoagulant baits may require up to six bait applications over 3 or more weeks to deliver similar results.

Selontra® controls rodent populations within 7 days

Thanks to its mode of action, Selontra allows complete control of large rodent populations within only 7 days, providing greater flexibility to fit effective rodent control for your or your customers satisfaction.

This highly effective, time- and resource-saving baiting procedure called Speed Baiting

The Speed Baiting procedure:

  • Thoroughly inspect the site to identify the nature and size of the rodent infestation.
  • Use sufficient baiting points to address the size of the infestation.
  • Use the maximum amount of bait per label instructions at each baiting point.
  • Inspect each baiting point the very next day. Replenish any eaten bait, topping up to the label maximum quantity.
  • Full control of the infestation can be possible within 7 days

Lower impact on the environment

With an environmentally favourable profile, Selontra® rodent bait is a sustainable alternative to other rodent baiting systems minimizing the risk of non-target poisoning

Rodents rapidly metabolise Selontra resulting in a lower risk of primary and secondary non-target poisoning (including domestic animals).
