Neogen Ramik Ground Squirrel Bait is an ideal solution to squirrels that destroy ornamental plants and trees. It is specially formulated to control California Ground Squirrels because it contains a first generation active ingredient Diphacinone which effectively targets ground squirrels and other rodents. This powerful rodenticide has food processing technology that makes the bait palatable and attractive. It remains effective, sweet, and fresh, attracting squirrels even after long exposure. Its no wax nugget formulation makes the bait weather-resistant and long-lasting. Highly suggested to use within 100 feet of a man-made structure and it does not require an operator license to apply. Packaged in a 4-lb. resealable pouch.
Place and secure tamper-resistant bait stations near active burrows or in other locations where the activity of California ground squirrels is evident. Secure stations at intervals of 20 to 75 feet in areas that are infested by California ground squirrels
