The guidance provides a summary of the information available on rodenticide resistance in both species and aims to promote more effective use of anticoagulants, as well as alternative methods of control. 

The documents were written by Dr Alan Buckle, CRRU Chairman, alongside BPCA member Killgerm Chemicals.

It includes a useful reference table on mutuations and locations, and also the effectiveness of active substances against the various mutations (table below).
