Keith's Pro Tips

"Due to Bromethalin being a single-feed rodenticide, only a 1/3rd of the bait amount is necessary compared to a typical anticoagulant rodenticide because a lethal dose makes it so the rodent doesn’t continue to feed a second time."


Bromethalin is an active ingredient featured in a variety of rodenticide products to control infestations of mice and rats. Unlike most common rodenticides, Bromethalin is not an anticoagulant. However, it is still a powerful rodenticide which can deliver a lethal dose to rodents in just one feeding. A rodent usually dies within 24 to 36 hours after ingestion.

Solutions Pest & Lawn is proud to carry products containing Bromethalin as part of our inventory of professional-grade rodenticides. On this page, you can learn more about Bromethalin and why it works so effectively to kill even the most stubborn of rodent invasions as well as shop the Bromethalin contained products we have in stock.

What is Bromethalin?

Bromethalin is a neurotoxin available as bars (blocks), pellets and seed form and is used as a primary active ingredient in rodenticides. In its original form, bromethalin is a pale, odorless, crystalline solid compound in the diphenylamine family. Bromethalin was first registered by the EPA in 1984 to address the increasing issue of rodent infestations around the world and the rising problem of rodent resistance to anticoagulant (blood thinning) rodenticides.

Since then it has risen in popularity as an alternative to anticoagulant rodent baits. Bromethalin can efficiently be used to control stubborn rodent infestations such as Norway rats, roof rats, mice, field rodents, moles, and raccoons. It can be applied inside and outside of industrial buildings and homes, in outdoor alleys, port terminals, sewers, farmhouses, grain stores, factories, fields, and transport vehicles such as trains, ships, and aircraft.

How Does Bromethaline Work?

Mode of Action

Bromethalin works by attacking the central nervous system of the rodent by interfering with the process of energy production within the rodents' cells. Gradually, the complications of the active ingredient to the central nervous system result in the rodent becoming weaker and weaker until they are paralyzed or experience convulsions and eventual death.

Benefits of Bromethalin

Bromethalin offers a quick-kill with most labels containing the active ingredient stating that rodents can consume a lethal dose in a single feeding and can die within one to two days after consumption. This is a lot faster than most anticoagulant rodenticides. Bromethalin also shows less chance of resistance from rodents over anticoagulants.

Drawbacks of Bromethalin

Bromethalin baits show concern as not being as palatable to rodents as other rodenticide active ingredients. Also, the rapid effects of the active ingredient can lead to rodents to become bait shy to the product if they don't consume a lethal dose.

Is Bromethalin Safe?

Bromethalin is safe to use with the proper safety precautions put into place. Due to its toxicity, we highly recommend when applying Bromethalin based rodenticides to place the product in tamper-resistant bait stations to keep the poison away from pets and children. Bromethalin is activated by ingestion or inhalation and is considered category II (moderately toxic) by the EPA when exposed to the skin through contact.

Wear gloves during treatment, and make sure to wash arms, hands, and face with soap after handling the bait. Avoid all contact with the mouth. Do not allow the bait to contaminate food or water supplies. In case of accidental ingestion, call the Center for Poison Control and a doctor immediately. While there isn’t an antidote for Bromethalin, there are treatment programs to mitigate the effects of the poison.

What To Expect

Bromadiolone bait

Bromethalin should always be used with the proper safety precautions which usually consist of a tamper-resistant bait station when targeting mice and rats. Bromethalin is highly toxic to humans, pets, and wildlife. While it is a rodenticide, bromethalin can also be used to address larger rodent issues like moles. It is often hidden inside a worm-like bait to attract moles such as Talpirid mole bait.

One of the reasons bromethalin is so popular is because it tends to kill faster than other anticoagulant pesticides, usually within 1-2 days, and is ideal when populations need to be addressed and wiped out quickly.
