I guess that would work. I think I'd just be afraid it would seep into the soil or something. I've never used rat poison for anything, or poison whatsoever, but I would be afraid of the after effects, personally.The rat poison that we buy from the market stall is the black powder. I don't remember exactly the name. What we do is get a bait like a piece of meat but the best is fish because it attracts the rat with its scent. We pour half a teaspoon of the powder on the bait and place it in the garden (the meat is on a piece of clean paper). When not eaten by the rat, we throw it in the garbage can and place another at night. On the 3rd night and the bait remains untouched, that means there are no more pests.
