Any soft drink, such as Coke or Pepsi that contains carbonated water in it can be used to kill rats. But here the question that arises is, why it could be used to do so? The answer to this question explains that the carbonated water when enters the rats' stomach, it causes a reaction to occur between the carbonated waters and the gasses present in rats' stomach. This reaction turns out to produce carbon dioxide gas in the stomach of the rat.
