Rodenticides with Erin Ryan

Title card for the Defender Radio Podcast episode

Rodents are found all across Canada. At some point, pretty much every homeowner or building manager will be confronted by two little eyes and a twitchy nose, and need a solution. For a long time, rodenticides – poisons targeting rodents – have been the norm. But the issues relating to welfare of animals and secondary poisoning have prompted many jurisdictions to implement bans on second generation anticoagulant rodenticides and others.

British Columbia is considering heavily restricting their use – and an opportunity for citizen engagement on this is available until June 19, 2022. To discuss rodenticides, the proposed regulatory changes, and what alternatives exist, Erin Ryan of the BC SPCA joined Defender Radio.
