Below is a buyer’s guide to product names and active ingredients, divided into 1st and 2nd generation (SGARs).

First-generation Poisons – to be used in areas where rats demonstrate little resistance to these chemicals. Bait covering is generally ineffective. High risk of secondary poisoning. However, far less toxic, and metabolises out of the body faster, than SGARs.
