Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use // // Wed, 13 Dec 2017 15:11:02 +0000 Countryside Alliance Ireland CA Ireland News A booklet entitled Rodent Pest Control in Rearing and Managing Game Birds has just been published by the Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use (CRRU) Ireland. The purpose of this booklet is to examine the impact of rats in game management and to describe and recommend ways of dealing with it. It raises awareness of the issue of wildlife contamination with rodenticides and the pathways of exposure. The use of rodenticides can lead to the exposure of non-target wildlife such as top predators like Barn Owls, Kestrels and Red Kites and there is growing evidence that such wildlife contamination is increasing.
