Hi jon and others
Is there a rat or mouse problem around Bowenville at the moment? From the
range of species that are succumbing, it sounds as if someone is doing some
rat/mouse control using poisoned seed. If so it is illegal. There are lots
of legal rodenticides that people can use but there are always folks who
have their own recipe and that recipe is usually not species specific nor is
the bait laid in any way to reduce non-target poisoning.
