Links to pesticide / poisoning / product information websites

Pesticide Safety Directorate
This link will take you straight to a webpage about the Campaign Against Illegal Poisoning of Wildlife which is a project run by the governments Pesticide Safety Directorate that aims to protect some of Britain's rarest birds of prey and wildlife from pesticide poisoning.


Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use (CRRP)
The Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use (CRRU) aims to protect wildlife while promoting and providing effective rodent control through the responsible use of rodenticides in rural areas. Barn Owls are sometimes killed as a result of eating rodents containing anti-coagulant rodenticides so this subject is of great importance to the Barn Owl Trust. Please read the CRRU advice in conjunction with the Barn Owl Trust leaflet No. 21 Rodent Control.


Ilex EnviroSciences Ltd formerly Ilex Organics produce EradiBait. They are natural bait formulas which are as effective as conventional chemical rodenticides. They are both successful even among rodent populations that are completely resistant to conventional anticoagulants.

The Barn Owl Trust is dedicated to conservation & education and does not operate a visitor centre.
