The poison causes them to search for water, which they don't find in a house.

First time I've ever heard that claim. Where did you hear that? If that were the case wouldn't the poisoned rats/mice above have left the houses?

Yes, there are rodent poisons that are purported to drive the pests to seek water......and jump off the ship to seek it as in Days of Yore and as a result of whatever was used.

i don't have definitive access to an opinion that I trust on this (I'm sure the internet'll throw up something much more worthwhile, mind) but my veterinarian daughter......who's worked in enough emergency clinics and dealt with more than enough companion animal poisoning from the legal and *not so legal* alternatives to the kosher way of getting rid of unwanted critters to be able to give me a worthwhile opinion...... definitely has a take on this, I'm sure.
