I had heard that Malathion could also be used to run off gophers, squirrels and other small creatures that can damage yards, is this true? Will this product kill grass?
Hi-Yield 55% Malathion Insect Spray is for outdoor home garden use for insectides only and is not labeled for use on lawns. We have not heard of it being used as you described for mammals and cannot recommend for this as that is an off label usage. Trapping is usually the control method used for gopher and squirrel control. Please take a few moments to read over our articles on these 2 pests Gophers How to get Rid of Squirrels
