Today we are joined by Jordan Reed to discuss using dogs to control rodents. Jordan hopes to educate and support organic and small scale farmers. His message is that a certified organic farm cannot use poisons in a food production area; A chicken coop is an egg or food production area.
The most commonly used poisons are anti-coagulants, which causes the rodents’ blood to thin, resulting in bleeding from the eyes and internal organs. As no immediate effect is felt, a rodent may consume many times the mortal dose. A dosed rodent often suffers extreme thirst, and can be found wandering aimlessly from day 3-5, which is usually how long it takes for the animal to die.
These poisons are considered one bite, one kill. As a dosed rodent wanders the landscape bleeding, what might happen? For a start, all predators prey on the sick and wounded, including owls and raptors, other land mammals follow. Bobcats are the only animal to exhibit any natural resistance to these types of poisons, and that is resistance not immunity. In short, to poison rats, you also inadvertently poison all natural and native predators along with your pets as well.
