ZP TRACKING POWDER is a single-dose, acute rodenticide containing the active ingredient, 10% Zinc Phosphide, that is used to control house mice. When the mouse ingests it, ZP TRACKING POWDER liberates toxic phosphine gas on contact with dilute acids in the rodent's stomach. This kills the mouse in a matter of hours. Zinc Phosphide is not stored in muscle or other tissues of poisoned animals, so there is there is no true secondary poisoning.
ZP TRACKING POWDER is a stable formulation with a shelf life of approximately three years. Tracking powder contains a toxicant mixed with special carriers that adhere to the rodent's paws and fur. It is ingested when the rodent grooms. Tracking powder is insoluble in water which prolongs the effects of the powder. This makes it ideal for tough jobs.
Tracking powder is good to use under controlled conditions when bait acceptance is poor. Apply just teaspoon amounts in bait stations, by gnawed openings, in corners and concealed places, along walls, in spaces between floors and walls, or in locations where house mice or their signs have been observed. Do not use tracking powder in drafty locations where it could become air borne or where it could contaminate food or surfaces that come in contact with food. Bell's tracking powders are restricted-use pesticides.
