DescriptionSodium fluoroacetate (compound "1080") and, to a lesser extent, red lead and zinc phosphide, have been suggested for use as rodent repellents in direct seeding. On the basis of a small test in 1950 on the Stanislaus Experimental Forest in California, none of these chemicals appears effective as repellents even though all three are effective as poisons.
