Cholecalciferol rodenticides covered by stewardship regime – Pest

With new cholecalciferol rodenticides coming to the UK market, the Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use (CRRU) has confirmed that they are subject to the conditions of the UK Rodenticide Stewardship Regime.

CRRU Logo 410x 291 (1)CRRU chairman Dr Alan Buckle said that pest controllers, farmers or gamekeepers considering the use of cholecalciferol should first read the product label carefully and ensure compliance with general principles defined by the CRRU Code of Best Practice.

Dr Buckle said: “Used responsibly, of course, it is a welcome addition to the options available in the UK for integrated rodent pest management.

“For comparisons between cholecalciferol and anticoagulants, users should refer to product manufacturers or distributors.”

The CRRU Code of Best Practice is being updated and any cholecalciferol-specific measures will be covered in the new edition, Dr Buckle added.
