MILWAUKEE (May 17, 2023) — Liphatech Inc., a leading manufacturer of soft bait, block and pellet rodenticides and distributor of Aegis® bait stations and IGI Carbon Dioxide™ (CO₂) Powered by Liphatech, is announcing the availability of its acute rodenticide,TakeDown II®, in a mini block.

TakeDown II mini blocks with the active ingredient bromethalin obtain results faster than anticoagulant rodenticides. As an acute rodenticide, TakeDown II is effective in fighting anticoagulant-resistant rodent populations and for controlling heavy infestations, especially those in commercial settings. TakeDown II is available in soft bait – and now mini blocks.

“The addition of TakeDown II mini blocks to Liphatech’s overall rodenticide family gives PMPs another choice. TakeDown II mini blocks offer the same great benefits as TakeDown II soft bait, providing PMPs options for what works best for their individual customers amidst the harder challenges,” said Matthew Titshaw, structural pest control business manager at Liphatech.

Specifically, TakeDown II can be used to target Norway rats, roof rats and house mice indoors or outdoors. Its 14g mini blocks are designed with rodent gnawing edges and a center hole for securing the bait on vertical or horizontal rods in bait stations. According to the label, a lethal dose may be consumed in one night’s feeding, but it may take two or more days for the first dead rodents to appear.

TakeDown II mini blocks, along with Liphatech’s entire mini block portfolio, are available to PMPs working in structural pest control management via authorized distributors. For state registration information or questions about Liphatech products and services, visit
