The loss of astrocyte function induced by sodium fluoroacetate
, a selective metabolic inhibitor of astrocytes, reduces LTP in the hippocampus and impairs learning and memory in adult rats but can be rescued by D-serine supplementation .
Shafi and Khokhar (1986) used grain baits of sodium fluoroacetate
(1080) in sugarcane fields and obtained 80-100% reduction in wild boar population.
and fluorocitrate: Mechanism of action.
In addition, the pharmacological blockade by fluoroacetate
(FAC) of the glial metabolism or physiological decrease by dehydration of the astrocytic coverage of the synapses onto magnocellular neurons in the hypothalamic neurosecretory system suppressed the increase in synaptic strength.
and zinc phosphide intoxications are potentially fatal.

(1080) a humane poison?' Animal Welfare 16: 449-458.
One method would employ rodenticides such as sodium fluoroacetate
, fluorcacetamide, zinc phosphide, norbormide, arsenious oxide, oe alpha-chloralose; however, it seemed that the rats had a built-in instinct against anything strange to them, "something called neophobia--new object avoidance" (Herbert 1989b: 128) which could make it difficult for the creatures to accept any new food put anywhere as baits especially if they could feel some ill-effects, in which case they would not touch it again.
By 2012 the programme had laid 150,000 baits - steel boxes of sodium fluoroacetate
