Nice job! :) As an FYI, remember most of the time you can get free 24/7 medical advice with rodenticides by calling the medical information line on the box of the product. :)

And remember with the new EPA mandates (2011), there will be less and less ACR (anticoagulant rodenticides) on the market - will be bromethalin and cholecalciferol instead!
