Detailed Information

Updated: Oct. 15, 2023, 1:09 p.m. By Rafiki Pest Control LTD.®

When rats or mice invade your home, they can live for up to 2 years or more! During this time, they must chew or gnaw on just about anything in their presence, from fabric, vegetables, fruits, plastic, paper, furniture, and even aluminum!  

Even worse, these invasive creatures also chew on electrical wiring, causing house fires, deaths, and millions of dollars worth of structural damages every year! 

Unfortunately, rodents are also carriers of more than 35 diseases which they spread directly to humans through bites, scratches, feces, urine, saliva, and contaminated food. 

Why Do Rats And Mice Gnaw On Objects?

Rodents must gnaw on the objects within your house for survival. That's because their incisors don't have roots, and hence, they never stop growing! If rodents don't constantly gnaw on objects, the incisors will become too big for them to feed, and eventually, they'll grow into their brains!

Rats and mice are more dangerous than you can imagine. These pesky pests are known for reproducing rapidly, and a small infestation will quickly go from being unnoticeable to colonizing your entire home! 

According to pest experts, some rat species have developed resistance to conventional rat poisons, making it very challenging for homeowners to get rid of rats on their own. 

While a rodent infestation is better off left to pest professionals, we have prepared a list of the best poisons to kill rats and mice, as researched and approved by our professional exterminators. 

Celphos is ranked high among the most effective rats, and mice poison in Kenya. This powerful insecticide effectively kills even the most stubborn rodent species in storages, homes, packaged foods, and raw grains. It is a globally registered fumigant for use against numerous types of field rodents and storage insects like larger/lesser grain borers, grain weevils, and beetles. 

Active Ingredient 

Aluminum Phosphide (57%w/w)

The Correct Application Of Celphos 

  • Identify all rodent activity areas in homes, storages, and commodities like whole cereals, seed grains, millets, rice bran, flour, and more. 
  • A Celphos tin comes with 333 tablets, each weighing 3g. Once exposed to air, the tablet slowly decomposes while releasing a phosphine gas that instantly kills rodents and other pests. 
  • Consider using three tablets in every 2 cubic meters and leave the treatment for 7-10 days. Ensure that the treated commodities or warehouses are completely airtight for the best results. 
  • The phosphine gas released by Celphos is insoluble in water, oils, and fats and it will dissipate entirely from the treated area/commodity upon aeration. 

Rat-Kill Pellets

Rat Kill Pellets is a  powerful rat and mouse poison. It is specially formulated to kill even the most resistant rodent species in public areas, offices, and large/small apartments. 

Active Ingredient 

Warfarin 0.05%- rodents stand no chance of survival as warfarin interferes with the production of vitamin K in rodent bodies, resulting in excessive bleeding and eventual death. 

The Correct Application Of Rat-Kill Pellets 

  • Thoroughly inspect your home, office, market area, or hospital to identify possible rodent activity areas. Consider places along walls, vegetation, and rat holes. 
  • Rat kill pellets are ready to use and require no preparation. All you need to do is place a small amount of the pellets about 20-40 feet apart in the infested areas. 
  • In case the infestation is severe, set the pellets at closer proximity for the best results. 


Fuko-Kill is a highly effective and fast-acting poison against rodents. This rodenticide is the most effective rat and mouse poison that kills and controls field and storage mice, moles, and house rats. 

Active Ingredient 

Zinc Phosphide 10%

The Correct Application Method Of Fuko-Kill 

  • Scoop an appropriate amount of the rodenticide paste and smear on foodstuff like groundnuts, smoked meat, or bread. 
  • Strategically place the poisoned foodstuff in a hidden area (out of children's and pets' reach), most preferably rodent activity areas or pathways. 
  • Rats and mice will die within 8-24 hours after consumption, so keep an eye out for dead rodents. 

Baraki Pellets 

Baraki is rated one of the most effective rats, and mice poison on the market right now. This anticoagulant bait pellet effectively eradicates a broad range of rodents, including resistant species in public areas, homes, lawns, and gardens. Note that this rodent poison is formulated to kill and mummify; hence you can't detect the foul smell of dead rats. 

Active Ingredient 

Difethialone 0.0025% w/w

The Correct Application Method Of Baraki Pellets 

  • Before applying any rat and mouse treatment, you must first inspect your home thoroughly to identify all rodent hiding spots. 
  • Place the bait/pellets near rodent activity or nesting areas like holes along walls, corners, and rat tracks. 
  • Baraki pellets are designed to kill rodents slowly while ensuring chances zero of bait shyness to eliminate the entire colony. 

Detia Gas EX Tablets

Detia Gas EX Tablets are the best rats and mice poison if you're looking to eliminate rodents and outdoor vertebrates. These highly effective tablets also exterminate a wide variety of storage pests. 

The tablets are designed to release a strong phosphine gas immediately upon exposure to air. The gas penetrates the rodent's body and interrupts its respiration, resulting in its instantaneous death. 

Active Ingredients

56-57% aluminum phosphide, 43-44% inert components. 

The Correct Application Of Detia Gas EX Tablets 

  • Begin with a thorough inspection to identify rodent hiding spots. 
  • Each Detia Gas EX comes with 333 round tablets that you can easily station them by hand on all suitable areas like ships, silos, warehouses, and storage containers. 
  • The tablets are relatively small, allowing for strategic stationing so that the phosphine gas released causes maximum extermination of the rodents.
