    • Abstract


      The toxicity of warfarin (0·-025 %), bromadiolone (0·-005 %) and brodifacoum (0·-005 %) to the Indian field mouse,Mus booduga Gray was determined. A single feeding of bromadiolone or brodifacoum resulted in 83% mortality, while the same mortality was obtained with warfarin only after 6 days of continuous feeding. A single day feeding of a single dose chronic poison was effective againstM. booduga than multiple dose chronic rodenticide.
