Bromethalin is a unique highly potent rodenticide exhibiting a mode of action different from anticoagulant rodenticides. Bromethalin provides a lethal dose to rodents in a single feeding with death generally delayed two to three days.

Brodifacoum is a highly lethal anticoagulant poison. In recent years, it has become one of the world's most widely used pesticides.

Bromadiolone falls into the class of rodenticides known as anticoagulants. Most rodent control today utilizes anticoagulant rodenticide baits. Anticoagulants cause death in rodents by disrupting the normal function for blood-clotting, resulting in death from internal bleeding. 

Diphacinone - Continuous feeding is necessary for a complete kill. Control requires approximately two weeks.

Zinc phosphide is recognized as the slowest acting of the commonly used acute rodenticides. Zinc phosphide is often recommended as the rodenticide of choice because it is fairly specific for rodents and there is no true secondary poisoning, except possibly in dogs and cats.

Cholecalciferol is a form of vitamin D. Cholecalciferol causes toxiosis by raising serum calcium levels to deadly amounts. Usually this causes slowed heart rate or cardiac arrest. Cholecalciferol takes up to 36 hours to be effective.
