I hired a licensed exterminator to deal with rats in my walls. He injected tracking powder by drilling holes into the walls on 3 different occasions. On the last time, my cat threw up and had a nosebleed. I’m now working withTerminix who said the powder is extremely dangerous and shouldn’t be used in residential areas. Is this true?!

Does the tracking powder work on Norway rats. And how effective is it.
Todd2651 on Apr 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Tracking powder will work on all mice and rats. They ingest it while they are grooming. It works well in situations where bait just wont work because you cannot limit alternate food sources. It also has to be dry where it is used as water will destroy it. Warehouses and grocery storage are the best places for it. If you can we always recommend eliminating alternate food sources for the rodents and baiting as that does not require a license. If you cannot or do not want to and have a license Rodent tracking powder will work.
Does it lose its potency after a while after being applied to the area?
