I got asked why nitrogen isnt used to cull mice instead of Co2 and i cant answer it :s

So i was just wondering if anyone knows why you cant use it ( nitrogen i mean ) or if you can.

I got asked on another forum by the way.

i think so, isnt that the one where you have to lay the stuff under substrate so it doesnt burn the animal - its said to be a lot riskier to people without experience.?

I think Nitrogen is just not recommended for amateur use - you have to store and transport it properly in a polystyrene container, you have to move it above using tongs, goggles and gloves, and if you're using it to cull animals you have to build a chamber in two parts so that the animal can't get to the nitrogen block but the gas can get to the animal. I don't think the actual method of killing is much different though.
