Anticoagulant rodenticide exposure in raptors from Ontario, Canada

Anticoagulant rodenticides (ARs) are used globally to control rodent pest infestations in both urban and agricultural settings. It is well documented that non-target wildlife, including predatory

Anticoagulant Rodenticide Contamination of Terrestrial Birds of Prey from Western Canada: Patterns and Trends, 1988–2018

As the dominant means for control of pest rodent populations globally, anticoagulant rodenticides (ARs), particularly the second‐generation compounds (SGARs), have widely contaminated nontarget


Fecal analyses are demonstrated as a valuable method of detecting AR exposure in red foxes and found a significant difference in occurrence of brodifacoum and coumatetralyl in foxes from different geographical areas.

Challenges in the interpretation of anticoagulant rodenticide residues and toxicity in predatory and scavenging birds.

A more complete understanding of the factors affecting AR toxicity in non-target wildlife could enable regulators and natural resource managers to better predict and even mitigate risk.

Although serum analysis is not sensitive for detecting sublethal exposures in RTHAs, it can potentially support a diagnosis of AR toxicosis in conjunction with other consistent signs, and show that exposure to SGARs remains widespread in R THAs in this geographic area.

Sustainable Control of Rats by Rodenticide Application and Natural Propagation of Barn Owls (Tyto Javanica)

A number of studies to achieve sustainable rat control programme by combining available rodenticide formulations with the natural propagation of barn owls Tyto javanica in oil palm plantation in Malaysia are reported on.

Anticoagulant Rodenticides on our Public and Community Lands: Spatial Distribution of Exposure and Poisoning of a Rare Forest Carnivore

This investigation of threats to fisher population persistence in the two isolated California populations investigates the magnitude of this previously undocumented threat to fishers, tested 58 carcasses for the presence and quantification of ARs, conducted spatial analysis of exposed fishers in an effort to identify potential point sources of AR, and identified fishers that died directly due to AR poisoning.

No indications of sublethal effects of exposure were found, and no association between liver brodifacoum level and signs of toxicosis was apparent, but continued monitoring is warranted as new U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulations on the sale and use of SGARs are enacted.

Grass is not always greener: rodenticide exposure of a threatened species near marijuana growing operations

An observation of brodifacoum AR exposure in a threatened species, the northern spotted owl, found freshly dead within 669–1347 m of at least seven active MGOs in California is reported on.

Anticoagulant Rodenticides in Three Owl Species from Western Canada, 1988–2003

Anticoagulant rodenticides are widely used to control rodent infestations. Previous studies have shown that nontarget organisms, such as birds, are at risk for both primary and secondary poisoning.
