DIRECTIONS FOR POCKET GOPHERS. Apply bait to control
pocket gophers using one of the two methods outlined below:
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.
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.
