RatAbate Strikers - for rat control

Save yourself time and effort with RatAbate Strikers - a ready-to-use product that effectively controls rats.

One RatAbate Striker = 18g of Ferafeed 213 non-toxic paste with Diphacinone added. This sits in a biodegradable, potato starch bait station on a weatherproof card.

The low risk of secondary poisoning from first-generation anticoagulants like Diphacinone makes them a great choice for farm situations and the environmentally conscious.

Use RatAbate Strikers in one-off or short-term pest control situations where you don’t need permanent bait stations. They’re easy to use – just staple them onto trees or suitable posts.

Features

  • Highly palatable – rats love it!
  • Weatherproof – Strikers are dipped in wax

  • Low risk of secondary poisoning – its short half-life* compares favourably to other toxins
  • Used by experts – the Department of Conservation and other leading conservationists and pest controllers

  • Minimal risk of secondary poisoning
  • Minimal risk to native birds and non-target species
