The £200m rodenticide manufacturing market is dominated by products based upon anticoagulants. However, due to issues of concern regarding humaneness, toxicity (resistance) and safety there is increasing pressure upon the industry to develop new products.
Scientists at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) in the UK have developed a method to treat a toxin to produce a toxoid for use in vaccines that does not involve the use of formaldehyde. These toxoids are more stable, quicker to produce and avoid the toxicity associated with formaldehyde.
