The process of action is by blockage of the stomach since when ingested by the rodent, a film is formed adhering to the walls of the stomach that after several days of ingestion, increases in thickness until it produces the occlusion of the stomach. The rodent is unable to excrete or vomit the product, so it is unable to eliminate it, resulting in death within 5 to 15 days. Three to four grams of product are sufficient for mice and five to eight grams for rats.”
