Zinc Phosphide (ZP) has become the preferred rodenticide for broad acre mice control. The standard formulation for Zinc Phosphide Mouse Bait is 25g Zn3P2/kg which equates to 1 mg of ZP per grain of wheat bait. This formulation means a single grain provides the lethal dose to an adult mouse. New double strength Zinc Phosphide Mouse Bait is now also available at the formulation 50g Zn3P2/kg called “Last Supper Supreme 50”. Zinc Phosphide is considered an S7 chemical and therefore a current ChemCert licence must be held to purchase the product.
During the period of 2010-14 farmers throughout the South Australian grain regions were experiencing an increased need to control mice to prevent significant crop losses. At this point, there was only a single registered manufacturer of Zinc Phosphide (ZP) mouse bait and AG Schilling & Co farming operation was facing a mouse control cost of $16-24/ha in bait alone. In an attempt to reduce the cost to our farming operation, and surrounding neighbours, in 2014 AG Schilling & Co become a registered manufacture of ZP mice bait for Wilchem Pty Ltd under the Last Supper Zinc Phosphide (Broadacre) Mouse Bait label. As one of the 4 farmer managed operations established in 2014, we were able to offer surrounding farmers a registered mice control option at a cost of less than one third of the other commercially available products at the time.
From the humble beginnings of a converted grain feed mixer with production capacity of 10t per day in 2014, Their Last Supper Pty Ltd (trading entity for mouse bait at AG Schilling & Co) has since invested heavily in improving its product and production capacity. This investment saw the commission of fully automated batching plant in February 2018. The new plant has seen production capacity grow from 10t/day to >30t/day and deliver a highly consistent product to customers through a just in time system ordering system.
All wheat used in the manufacturing of our ZP bait is processed through our on site cleaning plant prior to treatment allowing us to maintain completed traceability of from the production of the grain through to the dispatch of the completed bait. Quality Assurance checks are completed through the process and reports can be issued upon request by clients.
Last Supper Mouse Bait is available in two formulation options which are standard 25g Zn3P2/kg and double strength 50g Zn3P2/kg called Last Supper Supreme 50. They are available as:
From 2014 through to today, un-sterilised wheat based ZP mouse bait is still our top selling product. Made from locally grown wheat cleaned on site to the highest levels of purity, un-sterilised ZP mouse bait offers all farmers a cheap, effective, register broadacre mice control option.
In 2018, we were able to offer clients for the first time, Sterilised wheat based ZP mouse bait. Our sterilised product once again is made from locally sourced wheat which is cleaned on site and then sent off site to undergo sterilisation before returning to complete the manufacturing process. For farmers concerned about contamination of their seed crops from spreading un-sterilised wheat grain, our Sterilised ZP bait offers them an economically viable, effective, registered mice control option without compromising crop purity.
We are excited to now offer our clients Last Supper Supreme 50 which at a formulation of 50g Zn3P2/kg is double strength compared to the standard product range. Launched in 2021 after research by CSIRO showed benefits of a higher concentration.
We understand farmer operations come in all shapes and sizes and therefore we happy to offer our clients 2 pack sizes of 150kg sealed drums and 500kg plastic line bulk bags and we do not have a minimum required order.
Last Supper Zinc Phosphide (broadacre) Mouse Bait is available unsterilised, sterilised and pellet with the standard 25g Zn3P2/kg formulation and double strength option of 50g Zn3P2/kg called Last Supper Supreme 50.
