Department of Pesticide Regulations Restricts 2nd Generation Anti-coagulant Rodenticides

Effective July 1 2014 second generation anticoagulant rodenticides (SGARs) will no longer be available in retail establishments and only certified applicators may use them. This is in response to years of observations that these posions have a very serious imapct on wild animals across the state… While the restriction doesn’t eliminate these poisons, it does get them off hardware and grocery store shelves… not enough but it’s a start! There will be more on this issue so critical to wildlife on the BAX website to come… but for now, good. At least this much is done.
