Storm® Secure

Rodenticides

Storm® Secure is the most potent single feed rat killer. Storm® Secure brings the unparalleled rat killing power of flocoumafen to all-round rodent control. Exclusive to Storm® Secure, flocoumafen is up-to five times more powerful than the most popular Second Generation Anticoagulant Rodenticides (SGARs) bromadiolone and difenacoum. Storm® Secure is the best combination of grain-based palatability, durability and securability.

Benefits

Storm® Secure – The best combination of grain-based palatability, durability and securability.

  • Proven single feed flocoumafen efficacy in fixable bait blocks.
  • Excellent palatability and durability.
  • Quick and easy to use.
  • Maximum value, least cost pulse baiting.
  • Especially valuable: Storm® Secure is approved for the use in and around buildings (including burrows) and sewers.

Making the most of Storm® Secure

The single feed power of Storm® Secure allows 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® Secure only requires strictly limited amounts of rodenticide put out once per week.

Storm® Secure 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® Secure 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® Secure 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 (Second Generation Anticoagulant Rodenticides) use by the Health & Safety Executive and the development of a Stewardship Scheme by the industry, Storm® Secure is 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® Secure 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® Secure is 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® Secure activity against resistant rodents.

The fact that Storm® Secure 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.

Population Mortality Maximum Time to Death
Hampshire difenacoum & bromadiolone tolerant rats 100% 7 days
Berkshire difenacoum & bromadiolone resistant rats 100% 6 days
Bromadiolone resistant mice colony 100% 11 days
