Double Tap pellet bait - for possum and rat control
Double Tap pellet bait is our new kid on the block and boy, it’s proving its worth!
Double Tap controls possums and rats, so you get the double whammy. It’s strong enough to do the job and doesn’t hang around in the environment.
Double Tap is faster acting than comparable products, which means it’s more humane and cost effective – you use less of it. And with minimal risk of secondary poisoning, it’s the step ahead in environmental protection and a safer way to a Pest Free 2050.
To top it off, you don’t need a Controlled Substance Licence (CSL) to buy or use it.
Use Double Tap Pellets Bait 12g in the Philproof Bait Station.
- Diphacinone – 0.05g/kg
- Cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3) – 0.60g/kg
The potency of a second-generation anticoagulant without the risks
Double Tap is a unique, cost-effective pellet bait that is highly palatable for rats and possums. It has the potency of second-generation baits (that use actives like Brodifacoum) without the residue concerns.
It does this by combining the environmentally friendly features of a first-generation anticoagulant (Diphacinone) with a naturally occurring substance – Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol).
The first-generation anticoagulant Double Tap is metabolised relatively quickly, so it is less likely to bioaccumulate and put our non-target species at risk. If a game species is exposed, they’ll void these compounds quickly.
Cholecalciferol is readily metabolised too, and doesn’t remain in the environment.
Faster acting and more humane
Double Tap kills rats and possums faster than Brodifacoum where sickness is protracted and time to death is variable.
The reduced time to death from Double Tap is not only more humane – it also means a reduction in bait consumed compared to Brodifacoum.
Low risk of poisoning non-target species
The risk of secondary poisoning from Diphacinone and Cholecalciferol is low compared to compounds like 1080 and Brodifacoum. It is important however, that you keep pets and livestock away from the baits.
