Remove the protective liner from the inside of the shaker cap, and then apply 1 pound per 500 sq. ft. Lightly watering in the granules after application speeds up the release of material and its penetration into the soil, or you can choose to simply wait for the next rainfall. After application, mole, vole and gopher activity may increase, as they leave the treated area. Reapply if you see new activity in mounds and tunnels.
After placing bulb in hole, apply one (1) tablespoon of product into the hole, making sure granules surround the bulb, then backfill with soil.When planting ornamental flowers and shrubs such as; Roses, Azaleas, Rhododendrons, Mums, etc., apply two (2) tablespoons to the bottom of the planting hole and three (3) to four (4) tablespoons to the soil mix before back filling.
I had, key word, "had" tremendous vole problem. They were eating the root ball from some shrubs and other greenery. I had about 15have only 2. Weather they are dying or leaving I don't know and really don't care as long as they are gone.
I have gophers in my front and backyards. MoleMax works for me. I understand it can be a bit expensive to use since you have to keep reapplying it after three months under dry conditions and more often if raining heavily. So for California, it works quite well. While living here for 34 years, I have never had such active gophers as lately - due, we understand, to construction in a nearby vacant field. MoleMax is great because it is safe with with pets and children.
I've used MoleMax for a couple of years now. I live on a golf course where voles are plentiful. MM worked great in ridding my yard of pesky voles and keeping them at bay. The voles were eating and destroying various landscape plants, including juniper shrubs (like candy) and trumpet vines and an occassional burrow track in the lawn. I can purchase MM directly from Home Depot for roughly same price, but prefer the convenience of buying in bulk, especially without added shipping charges.
It has been more than a month. This product did not change the situation at all. The moles destroyed all my Lily bulbs and are more active now after two weeks of rain off and on. They are making tunnels all over my lawn.
