    Description

    Immediate and long-term effects of 3 rodenticide treatments on nontarget invertebrates were evaluated on prairie dog colonies. Immediate impacts indicated zinc phosphide reduced ants, strychnine alone reduced wolf spiders, and prebaited strychnine had no impacts. Long-term changes showed increases in wolf spiders and ground beetles and densities were contributed to biotic and abiotic habitat alterations due to lack of prairie dog activities. Among comparisons for efficacy, zinc phosphide was more efficacious at immediately reducing ant densities than either strychnine treatment; long term impacts for insects in general were minimal.
