How long does it takes until rat poison kill all rats?

Rat poisons, or rodenticides, are one of the most common and most effective methods for dealing with rat infestations. But unlike rat traps, poisons don’t work instantly. After a rat consumes a lethal dose of poison, it takes some time for them to actually die. The length of the delay between them taking the bait and dying depends on several factors.

The most important factor is the precise poison used. The first generation of rodenticides will take around a week to work, and rats will need to feed on the bait several times to consume a lethal dose. On the other hand, newer second-generation poisons will take effect in just two or three days and are more potent, meaning rats need to consume less bait to absorb a lethal dose. As well as working faster, the more potent second-generation rodenticides are considered a lot safer than the older versions. Because first-generation poisons are less potent, rats need much more of them in their bloodstream to have a lethal effect. If a pet or other animal consumes a rat killed with first-generation rat poison, there’s a much greater chance of secondary poisoning occurring, killing the second animal.

How long until rat poison works?

As well as the generation of poison used, the amount consumed will also affect the time it takes to work. Even very large doses of second-generation poisons are unlikely to take effect in less than two or three days, but the amount of time it takes older poisons to kill can be cut in half if the rodents eat a significant amount.

Another potential factor is the rats’ access to other food. If the only food available to them is poisoned bait, they will consume a lethal dose sooner than they would if they have other options.

    We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

    Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

    Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

    We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
