Storm® Mini Bits

Rodenticides

Storm® Mini Bits are the most potent single feed rat killer. Storm® Mini Bits bring the unparalleled rat killing power of flocoumafen to all-round rodent control. Exclusive to Storm® Mini Bits, flocoumafen is up-to five times more powerful than the most popular Second Generation Anticoagulant Rodenticides (SGARs) bromadiolone and difenacoum. Storm® Mini Bits are the most appetising loose bait alternative.

Benefits

Storm® Mini Bits – The most appetising loose bait alternative.

  • Proven single feed flocoumafen efficacy in a pellet bait.
  • Excellent palatability and durability.
  • Quick and easy to use.
  • Maximum value, least cost pulse baiting.
  • Especially valuable: Storm® Mini Bits are approved for use in and around buildings.

Making the most of Storm® Mini Bits

The single feed power of Storm® Mini Bits allow it to be effective in simple treatment programmes requiring markedly less bait and fewer visits than traditional multi-feed rodenticide regimes.

Rather than having to put out relatively large amounts of bait initially and to top them up every few days in at least the first two weeks of traditional treatment regimes for the greatest success, reliable control with Storm® Mini Bits only require strictly limited amounts of rodenticide put out weekly.

Storm® Mini Bits baiting in this way prevents the first rats and mice feeding at any stage consuming far more than a lethal dose of rodenticide, allowing less dominant later-feeding individuals access to the bait as rapidly and reliably as possible once their more dominant early-feeding contemporaries are dead or dying.

Where infestations are severe an extra visit to check and re-fill Storm® Mini Bits bait points is recommended between Day 0 and 7 of the treatment programme.

As well as using markedly less bait than the traditional baiting regimes essential with less powerful rodenticides, simple Storm® Minit Bits baiting reduces the number of visits required for the most reliable control to further minimize the overall cost of treatment.

Much less bait in the environment also helps to minimize the risk to non-target species.

For use in and around buildings.

Following detailed consideration of SGAR use by the Health & Safety Executive and the development of a Stewardship Scheme by the industry, Storm® Mini Bits are no longer confined to indoor use in the UK.

Instead, it can now legally be used around as well as inside buildings.

This allows Storm® Minit Bits to make a valuable contribution to general rat as well as indoor mouse control across the country, as has long been the case in other parts of Europe.

Effective even against resistant strains

Storm® Mini Bits are highly effective against strains of rats and mice resistant to other SGARs and first generation actives like warfarin. Its exceptional potency means no practical resistance has either been detected nor is anticipated in either rats or mice.

Storm® Mini Bits activity against resistant rodents.

The fact that Storm® Mini Bits will give reliable control of even such challenging populations makes it especially valuable where resistance is known or suspected.

Used strategically alongside other less powerful rodenticides, it can also form an important element in anti-resistance strategies.

Hampshire difenacoum & bromadiolone tolerant rats 100% 7 days
Berkshire difenacoum & bromadiolone resistant rats 100% 6 days
Bromadiolone resistant mice colony 100% 11 days
