Selontra Rodent Bait

Regain control of your operations with Selontra® rodent bait. With its fast colony kill1 and impressive labor savings, Selontra rodent bait gives poultry producers the power to take on even the worst rat and mice infestations while saving valuable time and money. It controls entire infestations in just seven days1 which lowers both labor and material costs. Its shortened baiting program requires less bait, and the stop-feed action of the active ingredient, cholecalciferol, can make a little go a long way: rodents eating enough for a lethal dose leave more for the rest of the colony2.

Selontra rodent bait is effective against anticoagulant-resistant rodents3, and it demonstrates proven palatability1 even when desirable food sources are available. With a durability that holds up in extreme hot and cold environments, Selontra rodent bait creates less waste.

Selontra rodent bait offers three major advantages to help you take back your poultry farm:

  • Fast colony kill: Controls infestations in seven days in U.S. field trials
  • Efficient use of bait: Allows for shorter baiting programs, less bait to kill populations, and reduced time and waste
  • Effective resistance management: Kills anticoagulant-resistant rodents

Use the materials and selling tools on this page to ensure your PMPs and their customers understand the benefits of new Selontra rodent bait for fast, efficient, effective rodent control.

General Information

Fast colony kill and proven palatability

Mice Consumption: Pre-Baiting, Baiting with Selontra Rodent Bait, and Post-Baiting

Selontra Rodent Bait palatability versus pig-feed

BASF U.S. Field Trial – NC Pig Farm (2016).

  • 100% colony control achieved
  • In spite of attractive food sources (e.g. pig feed), mice readily fed on Selontra rodent bait early in the baiting period

Roof Rats Consumption: Pre-Baiting, Baiting with Selontra Rodent Bait, and Post-Baiting

Selontra Rodent Bait palatability versus bulgar wheat

BASF U.S. Field Trial – New Orleans, LA (2016).

  • 100% colony control achieved
  • In spite of attractive food sources (e.g. human food waste, litter, restaurant waste, pet food, etc.), rats readily fed on Selontra rodent bait early in the baiting period

Efficient use of bait

Mice Consumption: Pre-Baiting, Baiting with Selontra Rodent Bait, and Post-Baiting

Selontra Rodent Bait palatability versus detex

BASF U.S. Field Trial – Indiana Grain Farm, Site 1 (2017).

  • 100% colony control achieved
  • No feeding on Selontra rodent bait after day 3 indicates mice stopped feeding
  • Significant feeding on Selontra rodent bait in spite of attractive competing food sources (e.g. grain)
