Second-generation anticoagulant rodenticide ban
On July 21, 2021, the province banned the sale and use of rodenticides containing the active ingredients brodifacoum, bromadiolone, or difethialone (known as second-generation anticoagulant rodenticides or SGARs). Exemptions are currently allowed for designated essential services and agricultural operators.
The BC SPCA applauds the province’s decision and recognizes it as a big win for local wildlife – as more humane alternatives to control rodents will mean less poison in the environment for owls, hawks, coyotes, and many more species up the food chain to potentially consume.
