STOP BAIT WASTAGE AND SAVE MONEY

Available in two formats, Maki rodenticide blocks are a suitable choice for baiting rodents in situations of high insect pressure or moisture. 

Rodent bait is often wasted. It is typically due to mould or rot, or because insects such as slugs and snails attack the bait, sometimes even before rodents have had the opportunity to feed on it. One way to reduce wastage – and therefore money – is by using an innovatively designed rodent bait such as Liphatech’s Maki Original and Maki Wrapped.

Liphatech discovered bromadiolone in the 1970s and has worked with this active for over 35 years. During this time, the company has honed its knowledge of both how to stabilise the active ingredient and create a of the highest palatability. As we know, bait formulation is one of the most important factors in making an attractive and successful rodent bait.

Liphatech’s bromadiolone is used in one formulation: Maki rodenticide bait. The single-feed, 20 gram bromadiolone extruded Maki blocks are available in two formats: Maki Original and Maki Wrapped.

Damp conditions and unfavourable weather can spoil otherwise sound baits. Mould-resistant Maki blocks, available as both Maki Original and Maki Wrapped, have been formulated to meet this challenge. Both are ideal for use in humid and damp environments, and their high level of weather-resistance and ease of installation make Maki blocks suitable for maintenance programs. The rodent blocks are also highly palatable and have added high edges to favour rodents’ gnawing behaviour.

Maki Original

In environments with high pressure from insects, slugs and snails, additional steps are needed to prevent non-target pests from consuming the bait; Maki Wrapped was developed to address this issue faced by pest managers. Maki Wrapped is the same bait formulation as Maki Original but is protected by an outer plastic sachet, offering an innovative and effective line of defence against non-target pests.

Maki Wrapped

This additional protection means pest managers can easily identify and report on bait consumption, secure in the knowledge that rodents are responsible. Maki Wrapped also has the added benefit of requiring zero contact between the bait and the end user.

Using Liphatech bromadiolone formulation in either Maki Original or Maki Wrapped provides pest managers with two options for saving money by preventing wastage of rodent baits.
