LEXINGTON, Ky., April 5, 2017 — Neogen is pleased to introduce Ramik® Ground Squirrel Bait, a new unrestricted rodenticide specifically labeled to control California Ground Squirrels.

Neogen’s new rodenticide combines superior palatability and weatherability of the nuggets with the proven active ingredient diphacinone. Ramik Ground Squirrel Bait does not require a license or permit for purchase or use.

“California Ground Squirrels can be a nuisance in areas of human activity, as we have greatly reduced the number of their natural predators, including rattlesnakes and foxes. Property owners trying to keep rattlesnakes off their property are unknowingly creating a sanctuary for ground squirrels, and endangering their ornamental plants and trees,” said Neogen’s Stacy Dixon. “Our nugget bait system uses food processing technology to produce unusually palatable and highly-attractive bait that retains freshness, sweetness and effectiveness in a long-lasting nugget form. Nuggets are hot extruded so they are weather-resistant without the wax.”

Ramik Ground Squirrel Bait is packaged in convenient 4-pound resealable bags. Contact Neogen for a complete list of applications and use directions or visit for a full specimen label and SDS.

Neogen’s complete line of rodenticides also includes Havoc® brodifacoum-based products, Di-Kill® difenacoum-based products, Cykill™ bromethalin-based products, Ramik® diphacinone-based products, and Prozap® zinc phosphide products. Neogen rodenticides are available in a variety of formats, including blocks, bars, pellets, place packs and meal bait.

Neogen Corporation (Nasdaq: NEOG) develops and markets products dedicated to food and animal safety. Neogen’s Animal Safety Division markets a complete line of diagnostics, veterinary instruments, veterinary pharmaceuticals, nutritional supplements, disinfectants, and rodenticides.
