CRRU (Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use)

As a distributor of many forms of professional and amateur use rodenticide PestFix actively supports and promotes the Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use to its customer base. PestFix is a registered CRRU supporter.

The CRRU aims to protect wildlife while promoting and providing effective rodent control through the responsible use of rodenticides.

For further details on CRRU see:

We ask that ALL of our customers, whether you are an amateur user or professional user to follow the CRRU Code at ALL times

The rodenticide industry, acting as a whole, has recognised the need to address the concerns surrounding the responsible use of rodenticides and the need to ensure that rodenticides are used correctly and in ways that will minimise the exposure of wildlife. The industry has therefore initiated the Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use (CRRU)

Key to the campaign is a code of good practice for the responsible use of rodenticides in rural areas. This stresses the need to adhere to the following good practice. It has adopted the logo ‘Think Wildlife’ to build recognition of the code and the overall campaign aims.

Always have a planned approach

Always record quantity of bait used and where it is placed

Always use enough baiting points

This will restrict the duration of exposure of non-target animals to a minimum.

Always collect and dispose of rodent bodies

Never leave bait exposed to non-target animals and birds

Never fail to inspect bait regularly

Never leave bait down at the end of the treatment

This code, as well as other useful CRRU guidance documents are available for download in PDF format via our resource centre by clicking here.

The Issues Research over many years has highlighted two main areas of concern with regard to the use of rodenticides and wildlife.

Firstly, the remains of individual birds collected are sometimes suspected to have died as a result of the irresponsible or incorrect use of plant protection products and biocides. The scope of this is monitored and reported through a variety of schemes. One of these is the Wildlife Incident Investigation Scheme (WIIS) run by the Chemicals Regulation Directorate (CRD) and Science and Advice for Scottish Agriculture (SASA) in the UK.

In Ireland, the RAPTOR Protocol involving three government agencies (the National Parks and Wildlife Service, the Regional Veterinary Laboratories of the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, and the State Laboratory) has been developed to provide for the investigation of injuries and mortalities in birds of prey.
