Laboratory efficacy of some commercial zinc phosphide baits used for control of meadow voles microtus pennsylvanicus and pine voles microtus pinetorum in orchards



Laboratory efficacy of some commercial zinc phosphide baits used for control of meadow voles microtus pennsylvanicus and pine voles microtus pinetorum in orchards



Hortscience 16(1): 49-51



Five commercially available Zn3P2 preparations were tested in a 3 day, free choice trial for efficacy on meadow voles (M. pennsylvanicus) and pine voles (M. pinetorum). A 2% Zn3P2 pellet produced a significantly greater and quicker kill in meadow voles than a 2% Zn3P2 oat-corn bait. Whole oat and cracked corn baits (2% Zn3P2) performed as well on meadow voles as did a Zn3P2 paraffinized pellet. The 2% Zn3P2 pellet produced significantly greater mortality in pine voles than did 2% Zn3P2 oat-corn and whole oat baits and a 1% paraffinized pellet. There was no evidence that grain baits were more effective for meadow voles than pine voles.
