We are working on a new 3rd generation rodenticide for the Canada market

If a domestic rodenticide has the same concentration of active ingredient as a commercial product, several considerations come into play:

  1. Regulatory Compliance: In Canada, both domestic and commercial rodenticides are regulated by the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA). The PMRA sets the rules for the concentration of active ingredients based on intended use and safety. If a domestic product has the same concentration as a commercial one, it must still meet the regulatory standards set for residential use, including safety, efficacy, and labeling requirements.
  2. Safety and Handling: The higher concentration typically found in commercial products may pose increased risks in a residential setting, where children and pets are more likely to be exposed. Therefore, even if the concentration is the same, domestic products often have additional safety features, such as tamper-resistant bait stations, to mitigate these risks.
  3. Labeling and Instructions: Regardless of concentration, the labeling and instructions for use can differ significantly between domestic and commercial products. Domestic products generally have more detailed safety instructions tailored to non-professional users.
  4. Targeted Use and Formulation: Sometimes, the formulation of the product, not just the concentration of the active ingredient, determines its suitability for domestic or commercial use. Other ingredients in the formulation can affect the product's safety profile, efficacy, and method of action.
  5. Responsibility of Use: It's crucial for users, whether handling a domestic or commercial product, to follow the label instructions precisely. Improper use of rodenticides can lead to ineffective control of pests, environmental harm, and risks to non-target species, including humans and pets.
  6. Professional Guidance: For residential users dealing with significant infestations, or when using products with higher concentrations of active ingredients, it might be advisable to seek professional pest control services. Professionals have the training and experience to handle potent formulations safely and effectively. Domestic rodenticide might have the same active ingredient concentration as a commercial product, its overall formulation, safety features, labeling, and intended use could differ significantly to align with the specific needs and safety concerns of residential environments.
