The peasants are not allowed to have any pesticides or herbicides that actually work.

Did the D-Con company do something to oppose Barry?

So this will result in more rats and mice and more disease which will put a greater burden on the health care system and run the Obamacare costs up even more. So we will end up with a worse quality of life and probably some more government employees and expenses. There could be a plan here.

Pretty soon the only thing you'll be able to do is put out sugar and pork chops to get the rats to die from diabetes and high cholesterol.

I guess I am going to have to buy a few economy packs of D-con when I get to the home improvement store in a few days.

D-con is the only mouse/rat poison that still works. I have tried the others, and the mice just seem to get fat. I wondered why, now I know.

Already got the light bulbs, and the ammo.

“I’d shoot the little bastards, but I gotta save my ammo”

Well, I shot 30 of my precious .22 rimfire in a bullseye match this weekend.

Felt real extravagant, like when a senator when he fills up his motor yacht with 6000 gallons of diesel for a cruise.

This will probably be like banning DDT for mosquito spraying...which led to massive outbreaks of malaria throughout Africa that have killed millions.

But that’s okay, because the black plague (rat borne) will somehow probably end up by making Al Gore even richer.

It’s actually pretty safe to use around kids.. Takes a bunch to cause a problem.

Lots of kids are exposed, harm to very few.

The lone comment at the link says it all:

Well, good. The DDT ban helped the nearly extinct malaria parasite recover, maybe this will aid biodiversity by preserving the Black Death virus.

After seeing the results from glue traps, hell with that. Talk about something that should be classified as a torturing an animal to death, that is it.

You usually have to end up killing them the old fashion way when you find them in the morning, after they set there struggling in the glue all night.

Maybe that is the plan. They ban poison stating that you can still use glue traps and the like. Then they ban glue traps later on because they are a cruel way to kill an animal.

Woo Hoo....cruelty to rats. Poor babies.

At least they don’t eat d-con and crawl back up into the wall to die and stink up the place. Or they crawl into the toilet and drown seeking water.

That is always a nice cruel death...drown in a toilet.

A nice rim fire 22LR shotshell puts them out of their misery.

This works great when I find them in my glue traps. I just load up one shell at a time in my classic Model 12 Remington Pump with Octagon barrel. Got a lousy pesky woodpecker this morning as he was trying to bore a hole in a metal roof.

I can see why the rodents in the EPA would be sensitive to these poisons.

I guess there are Soros friends who are interested in marketing some sort of “green” rodent poisoning. Look for some big grants to go to them.

My neighbors put D-Con in their yard to deal with rats. One of those rats ate the D-Con and escaped into my yard. My wife's hunting dog, a Jack Russell Terrier, ate the poisoned rat. We found his bloated body with flies in his mouth. Too late to fix that mistake. He didn't deserve to die that way.

“The peasants are not allowed to have any pesticides or herbicides that actually work.”

Actually they are. I still have chemicals from 15 years ago that Clinton outlawed. They work fine.

The key is to track this stuff, and know when they will be pulled from the shelves, for the EPA is actually telling us WHAT WORKS. In this case, between the time that I read this thread and now posted, I already ordered $100 worth of the stuff...even though I’ve NEVER had a rodent problem.

Be advised that when you absolutely have to have mouse and rat poison, it is about as important as having a gun when you are being home invaded. A rat can crawl through a hole the size of a nickel, and when you get one, you probably have dozens.

They carry lots of diseases, ruin food stores, even make a home uninhabitable. And they stink. And they can breed like crazy.

The gestation period for a rat is about 3 weeks, and baby rats can reproduce at 5 weeks. And rats will mate with any rat of the opposite sex, even incestuously.

Bottom line: Store up a goodly amount of rat poison. It keeps, and when you need it, you *really* need it.

This is going to hurt my sale of Vitamin K-1. People are going to use the more dangerous forms of rat bait that kills the rat within hours after ingestion. Right now, we have almost a three day window of opportunity to start administering the antidote for D-Con before serious symptoms begin in cases of accidental ingestion. To me this means the animals presented to me are going to be in more serious condition and the outcomes will not be as happy.

EPA or any other department should not have the power to write legislation, it should always go through congress and the proper process.
Not that's it's much of a safeguard in this day and age but it would be at least something.
