Homemade pet friendly Rat and Mouse killer
« on: February 27, 2007, 22:05 »
Just found a recipe for home-made pet friendly Rat and Mouse killer on a website from Tennessee as follows :

1 cup of flour
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of baking soda ( Bicarbonate of soda)

Mix together and place in small bowls where you notice rodent traffic.

 Says it's safe around household pets.

Thought I'd give a go and see what happens.

you will find that cats wont eat the sugar sweet stuf probs .and taste baking soda ,this was a trick used to get shot of raccoons in knoxville  it would be mixed with wet cat food and left out by the bins  coons would eat it and than have massive stomach ache and in cases the belly swells up and suffocates them by squashing the lungs

The bicarb will react with stomach acid and produce carbon dioxide gas, obviously in excess to create the swelling.

Apparently, most of these vermin and creatures cannot pass wind, hence the internal combustion.  :twisted:

You sure about the gas type produced? :?   Humans take bicarb (an alkaline) to neutralize excess stomach acids and gases for relief. In the days before Alka Seltzer, Tums, Immodium and whatever, you simply spooned some baking soda in water and when it bubbled, it was 'bottoms up!' If you don't already have stomach gas, it can create some, especially in the different kinds of digestive systems in animals which can't break the wind for relief. And yes, Munty, it is rather painful for them.

Just remembered - instead of baking soda, some people leave fresh soda pop (with fizz) for the beasties to drink and it acts exactly the same - kaboom! Yuk!

Won't this harm the birdies if they eat some of the bicarb as i heard they literally explode if eat anything with bicarb in?
