Kaput Mole Gel is a low risk bait with the active ingredient warfarin. Kaput Mole Gel is injected directly into the moles tunnels using the syringe. The syringe is marked on the outside with the exact right amount of dose that should be injected into the burrow each time. Kaput Mole Gel looks like the mole's natural food source (worms and grubs) when injected into the tunnels. Unlike other worm-like baits Kaput Mole Gel cannot be pushed out of the burrow by the mole.
Warfarin, the active ingredient, is anticoagulant that is effective at very low dosages and because of this is considered a low risk bait with very low secondary and environmental toxicity. Kaput Mole Gel should never be applied above ground, but rather only into burrows. If the bait is accidentally ingested by pets or children Vitamin K1 is the antidote and it is readily available.
Determine layout of active burrow systems and locate main runways. Twist dosing ring to set proper dosage. Inject 1/2 oz bait per placement into tunnel, making up to 6 placements per burrow system. Reapply bait every 2-3 days until mole activity ceases.
Yes, when used as directed. Kaput is LESS toxic to non-target animals. An antidote, Vitamin K1 is readily available.
Each tube contains 6 treatments
If unopened and sealed, product will last 2-3 years if kept away from extreme temperatures. Once opened and properly resealed, product should last a year in normal conditions.
Bait must be injected below ground into the mole tunnel
Gel which makes it nearly impossible to eject from the burrow
The presence of moles may be indicated by a network of surface ridges in the turf or by a series of conical mounds of earth pushed up from deep burrows. Conical mounds may betray the location of main underground runways.
Best thing they ever came out with,Alot better than the worms,They shove those back out the hole..I cut up small pieces of cardboard,bend up an edge,put some gel on the cardboard,take long tweezers put down the hole and put into the run as far as you can go,Both sides of the run,leave the hole open,then check it a few hours..When they have filled it in they have hit...But remember there are many more to kill...I go through 5 tubes a season,I live by a woods,there favorite hunting grounds....
I have been trying lots of different products to either deter or kill moles in my yard. I've used the Kaput Mole Gel once in one area, and so far the moles have vanished from that area. So I'd say it's a winner and would recommend it.
I have been using this product for years. Nothing better! BUT, you must know where to put it, how to put it, then leave it alone. This must be in an active run. Push down the run, wait and see if it pops back up. If you miss this step you may very well have put product in a feeding run that the mole may never return to. A nice straight run that is in use, as I said before. take a wooden rod and carefully make a hole in the run. Be sure not to smash it down, or disturb it any more that needed. place the gel as deep as you can. Then cover your hole, again, carefully. If the mole sees light it may not pass by the gel. Follow the steps, I know it seems like a lot of work, but this stuff works when used as I have described here.
How many moles are active my yard that is 100X150?
It is really hard to determine exactly how many moles there are in a yard at any given time. The best way to identify exactly where the moles are coming from and approx. how many would be to speak with your Agricultural Office. Please check out out Mole Control Page.
