Rodenticide are one of the most important tools that pest management professionals employ to reduce and eliminate rodent populations that can negatively impact public health through the transmission of various dangerous and deadly diseases. Rodenticides are an invaluable tool in any integrated pest management plan to deter rodents.  Rodenticides are approved for use by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency after undergoing comprehensive human health and ecological risk assessments that uses the most current science-based information and peer-reviewed scrutiny.


As rodent control becomes an ever increasing component of pest management, NPMA has developed a number of tools for members including a rodenticide stewardship training course available for state credits, information on state specific regulation for rodent control, details on new technologies (i.e., dry ice) for rodent control and articles and information as to industry techniques on rodent control that are all available in this section of the website.
