Firstly the law has changed for those who use aluminium phosphides. It now requires you to have a certificate to buy and apply Phostoxin or Talunex, if your wanting to control your rabbits, rats and moles.
Also if you have had previous training with metallic phosphides, unfortunately only the new Level 2 Award is now recognised, therefore you may need to re train.

For this reason distributors are asking to see evidence of training. Consequently if you wish to continue using this product, training and achieving a recognised qualification is certainly the only way forward.

As a result the unit covers the following areas:

  •  understanding and complying with the legislation.
  •  safety requirements and codes of practice.
  •  the relevance of product label information.
  •  how to store and transport aluminium phosphides safely.
  •  managing and disposing of aluminium phosphides legally.
  • keeping records.
  • assess the environmental factors relating to an application.
  • operate aluminium phosphide application equipment safely.
  • knowledge of risk areas and fumigation zones.
