Grooming Mice Ingest Tracking Powder
ZP TRACKING POWDER is an acute, single-dose rodenticide containing the active ingredient, 10% Zinc Phosphide, that is used to control house mice. When the mouse ingests it, ZP TRACKING POWDER liberates toxic phosphine gas on contact with dilute acids in the rodent's stomach, killing the mouse in a matter of hours. Zinc Phosphide is not stored in muscle or other tissues of poisoned animals, so there is there is no true secondary poisoning.
ZP TRACKING POWDER is a stable formulation with a shelf life of approximately three years. Tracking powder contains a toxicant mixed with special carriers that adhere to the rodent's fur and paws. It is ingested when the rodent grooms. Tracking powder is insoluble in water which prolongs the effects of the powder, making it ideal for tough jobs.
Tracking powder is good to use under controlled conditions when bait acceptance is poor. Apply just teaspoon amounts in bait stations, rodent runways, burrows, wall voids or other areas where rodents travel.
Do not use tracking powder in drafty locations where it could become air borne or where it could contaminate food or surfaces that come in contact with food. Bell's tracking powders are restricted-use pesticides.
