Anticoagulant rodenticide exposure in wildlife has been an issue of concern both in California and nationwide. Currently, the USEPA, is continuing to move towards removing the most harmful of products from consumer venues.
Here in California, the Department of Fish and Wildlife is working with the Department of Pesticide Regulation with the aim of restricting access of these materials to only certified applicators.
The process is not a fast one but rest assured that we are committed to protecting wildlife from these materials. You can do your part by avoiding rodent control products with the active ingredients brodifacoum, bromadiolone, difethialone, and difenacoum.
To get the message out, Raptors are the Solution produced this video with young (and very talented) filmmaker Ian Timothy. Enjoy!!!
