To be used exclusively for the control of pocket gophers by manual application of bait below ground.
Note: See environmental hazards below with regard to pets.
APPLICATION DIRECTIONS FOR POCKET GOPHERS. Apply bait to control pocket gophers using one of the two methods outlined below:
Plug Removal Baiting: Burrowing pocket gophers (Thomomys spp. and Geomys spp.) throw out low, fan-shaped mounds on either side of their underground tunnel. These lateral tunnels coming to the surface are on the flat side of the fan and are plugged with soil. Using a long-handled spoon, carefully remove the plug. Insert one teaspoon of bait as far down as possible. Reclose opening, being careful not to cover bait with soil.
Main Runway Baiting: To locate main runways, probe about 6 to 8 inches away from mounds by use of an iron bar, a strong stick, or other suitable implement. Resistance on probe will drop suddenly and probe will fall about two inches when main runway is entered. Carefully enlarge the opening to accommodate insertion of the bait. Insert one teaspoon of bait into each active tunnel. Carefully close the hole with a stone, sod, or soil. Take care not to cover bait with soil.
ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS. This product is extremely toxic to birds, fish and other wildlife. Wildlife feeding on treated bait may be killed. Dogs, cats, and other predatory and scavenging mammals and birds might be poisoned if they feed upon animals that have eaten this bait. Do not apply directly to water.
