    Some poisons on the market are being misused for the purposes that they were intended. Dairy fly bait , called Golden Malerin is one of them. This poison is primarily used to kill flies in the dairy farms. It is a neural toxin that shuts down the respritory system of any insect or animal that eats it. Coons, rats, possum, and skunks have been known to be be affected when this poison was mixed with milk or other feeds. Dogs and cats can also be affected if they are given access to this poison. Small animals are not expected to live past 100 yards of the poison dish after ingesting it. Please read the usage on all lables before using any poisons. Whether it be for rats, mice, or flies. Any use other than the intended use could be subject to procecution unless you don't get caught.
