  • Zinc phosphide (Zn3P2) is an inorganic chemical compound.
  • Zinc phosphide is an inorganic compound with typically a dark grey crystalline appearance.
  • Zinc phosphide is a gray black powder and it has an odor similar to that of garlic.
  • Zinc phosphide (Zn3P2) is a heavy, finely ground, crystalline gray-black powder that is practically insoluble in water and alcohol.
  • Zinc phosphide also known as trizinc diphosphide.
  • It was first synthesized in 1740 and was first used as a rodenticide in 1911-12 by the Italians.
  • Zinc phosphide is commercially available as bait pellets, granules, dust, and tracking powder.
  • Zinc phosphide is an inorganic compound that combines phosphorus with zinc.
  • Zinc phosphide is used for rodent control on crops including grapes, sugarcane, artichoke, sugar beet, alfalfa, barley, berries, oats,
    sugar maple, wheat, corn, and hay.
  • It is also used on grasses such as home lawns, rangeland, and golf courses.
  • Zinc phosphide targets household rodent pests, such as mice and rats, in addition to field rodents including voles, ground squirrels,
    pocket gophers, prairie dogs, and jack rabbits.
  • It is also uses as a tracking powder for the control of house mice.
  • It is used on crop areas and on non-crop areas including lawns, golf courses, highway medians, and areas adjacent to wetlands.
  • Zinc phosphide is only used as a rodenticide. It is made into bait that will attract the pest, such as gophers, ground squirrels, or field
  • There are over 80 products containing zinc phosphide registered for use in the United States.
  • Zinc phosphide is used as a rodenticide throughout the world, but it has only recently been registered for use in Australia.
  • Zinc phosphide has been registered for use in pesticide products in the United States since 1947.
  • Currently, zinc phosphide is the only toxicant registered in bait formulations for controlling prairie dogs.
  • Zinc phosphide-treated oats has been registered as a rodenticide for control of black-tailed prairie dogs for decades.
  • Common rodenticide use for woodrat control includes Prozap, zinc phosphide (ZP) and anticoagulant rodenticides.
  • ZP is an acute (non-anticoagulant) toxicant that rapidly kills rodents after they ingest a single, lethal dose.
  • Zinc phosphide is a cheap and acute rodenticide but has have limited value in rodent control due to its garlic-like smell and bitter taste.
  • Zinc phosphide is typically added to rodent baits in amount of around 0.75-2%.
  • More recently, zinc phosphide formulation and application rates have been developed for use in prairie dog control.
  • Zinc phosphide (2%) baits are the only rodenticide baits registered for in-field use in Florida sugarcane.
  • The baits have to contain sufficient amount of zinc phosphide in sufficiently attractive food in order to kill rodents in a single serving; a sublethal dose may cause aversion towards zinc-phosphide baits encountered by surviving rodents in the future.
  • Zinc phosphide is used to control populations of a variety of commensal and field rodents.
  • It has been used as a rodenticide since the early 1940's and is presently still being used.
  • Much of the early development work of zinc phosphide based rodenticides was conducted in the United States.
  • One of its current uses employs application as a grain bait or pellet at the time of planting to reduce agricultural losses by field rodents.
