    @ nijagists, I advise you to advertise this product, D-Con. It is very good. It attracts rats and they come out from everywhere they may be hiding in the house. People dont have to kill them. Just put the poison food (like sand block) parallel to the walls in the house. They will eat and tired. Within a week, you will smell dead rats everywhere.

    Just assume I am lying but try it. You will appreciate it. D-con comes with disposable and reusable cases. Disposable ones come ready made (with poison food inside. Reusable can be refilled. The problem is that rats in Nigeria are big so they wont fit neither reusable nor ready-made. The best thing to do is to buy quantity of D-Cons not in containers. They are like cubes (square, rectangular and hexagonal shapes). With cases, rat enters the case and eat bcus they are small ones in the West. But in Africa it is better to just put the poison food(D-con) on the floor (caution children) and rat will eat them. In less than 2 weeks, you will smell dead rats everywhere.

    D-con is water resistant. It is good for indoors and outdoors. Rats must come out wherever they are and eat. Very effect. I guess you should try it first if you have rats problems and then recommend it to marketers.

    After you see the result, abeg, i need my 5% :}

    The poison prescribed by the senator can harm human being as well, the best solution is to recommend that every household should have at least one CAT pet depending on the size of their domain. Our house in the village is very large with all manners of antiquated loads some bought before I was born, and then there no single rat because of the presence of cats. Federal Ministry of Health pls take note!
