What has changed when purchasing rodenticide?

On 1st January 2018, new legislation was introduced regarding the use of rodenticides. The legislation restricts the pack size that non-professional users can purchase. Non-professional users are classed as those who have not undergone relevant training or are not part of an approved farm assurance scheme.
