Selontra® Rodent Bait

With its impressive labor savings and fast colony kill, Selontra® rodent bait delivers real efficiency for your business. It controls entire infestations in just seven days1, which lowers both your labor and material costs. Its shortened baiting program requires less bait, and the stop-feed action of the active ingredient, cholecalciferol, makes a little go a long way: rodents eat only enough for a lethal dose, leaving more for the rest of the colony2.

Selontra rodent bait is effective against anticoagulant-resistant rodents, and it demonstrates proven palatability even when desirable food sources are available. And with a durability that holds up in tough conditions, Selontra rodent bait creates less waste, so it takes care of business while making yours more efficient.

Selontra rodent bait offers three major advantages to your business:

  • 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 waste
  • Effective resistance management: Kills anticoagulant-resistant rodents

General Information

Fast colony kill and proven palatability

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.), the rats readily fed on Selontra rodent bait early in the baiting period

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), the mice readily fed on Selontra rodent bait during the early 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 rodents stopped feeding
  • Significant feeding on Selontra rodent bait in spite of attractive competing food sources (e.g. grain)
