, two in potentially lethal concentrations.
VCWPA data from its Raptor Study for levee protection indicate that where raptor perches attracted hawks and owls, rodent burrow damage was reduced by about 50 percent when compared to locations with anticoagulant rodenticides

, utilised to control rat populations within these farms.

"However, our inspections show that no rodenticide

It is one of several training routes to help farmers who want to become certified to use professional rodenticide
