    Use correctly!

    By Dale on 10/07/2015

    This is a poison laced rice that gophers can consume easily. You must identify the gopher's mound, carefully dig down until you locate the path, put approx 3 healthy spoonfulls into the open hole and then carefully replace the dirt without disturbing the bait. I have used this product for several years now and eliminated hundreds of gophers with it. It is the best on the market! I know because I have tried them all!

    Big Acres

    By Stephen on 12/19/2016

    I have an ongoing problem with pocket gophers, voles and field mice. I wipe them out and a few months later they start migrating back from the other sides of my property. They even reinvade using old tunnel networks. Kaput-D works and when you get the 50 lb. bulk bags it is the cheapest cure. The injector T handle is a must. I very rarely see any dead critters above ground. My yard is 15 acres and I am prepared with my 4th bulk bag form DMOPC.com for next season.

    Gophers gone

    By Joe on 01/13/2017

    This is the first thing I have found to help control gophers. I tested an area last fall to see if it worked. It did! I was very pleased and will be using it again as soon as the snow is gone!

    Cheaper In Bulk

    By Stephen on 08/24/2016

    I have used this product with good results over the past 4 yrs. I could't find the other supplier when I ran out of bait last fall. I missed early spring treatment of my 15 acre yard. I planted 13 big spruce and pine trees this spring and lost 4 of the blue spruce to gophers and ground squirrels undercutting the root balls. A sad pain to loose 7 ft. trees and a big money loss too. Mos of the other suppliers were selling small buckets of Kaput-D at a big price. I liked the DMOPC site which gave good info. I'm hitting those dirty rats hard with this bait and expect results to show soon. Just a few leftover rodents can cause heck on a yard quickly. And the gophers and ground squirrels can migrate 200-300 meters in a few months.

    Works good

    By Guillermo on 02/17/2016

    Took care of gophers a few days after application. The bait are small seeds which makes it easy to drop into borrows through a small hole and with a funnel (I made one with paper)
