Talpirid Mole Bait

This is the popular Talpirid Mole Bait.  We also sell the Talpirid Mole TRAP.

Talpirid Mole Bait is one of the most effective mole control products available today. It is the first and only mole bait designed, developed and scientifically proven to kill moles. One Talprid Mole Bait worm contains a lethal dose and can kill in 24 hours. One box of Talpirid contains 20 worms, enough for two typical treatments (sufficient bait to kill several moles).

It is HIGHLY recommended that you use disposable gloves to handle and place the Talpirid worms so you do not contaminate them with your scent or other contaminants on gloves that you may already have.

How-to Videos




TALPIRID, (Talprid) developed by Bell Laboratories, Inc., is the first and only mole bait designed, developed and scientifically proven to kill moles.

Talpirid is Proven Effective

Talpirid's active ingredient capitalizes on a mole's physiology. In both field and laboratory tests, Talpirid achieved outstanding acceptance and control. One Talpirid mole bait worm contains a lethal dose and can kill in 24 hours.

Talpirid mole bait mimics a Mole's Natural Food Source

Talpirid's size, shape and feel let moles consume the bait in the same manner as its primary food source, the earthworm. Special enhancers in Talpirid ensure immediate attraction and excellent product acceptance.

Talpirid is Ready-To-Use

TALPIRID mole bait comes in a convenient tray of 10 worms which release freely from the tray, ready for immediate placement. The Talpirid worm trays are individually sealed in a bag for ultimate freshness and maximum shelf life.

SELECTION OF TREATMENT AREAS:

The presence of moles may be indicated by a network of subsurface runways in the turf or by a series of conical mounds of earth pushed up from deep burrows. Subsurface runways are indicated by raised ridges of vegetation and soil caused by moles foraging for food just below the soil surface. These runways are especially noticeable when the grass above them turns yellow. Conical mounds may be indicative of the location of deeper main underground runways.

APPLICATION DIRECTIONS

Subsurface Runways:

TALPIRID has been specially designed to mimic the natural food sources of the mole. To achieve maximum effect, TALPIRID should only be placed in areas used habitually by moles for feeding.

Establishing Initial Activity:

Use your finger, small wooden dowel or a narrow rod to puncture a hole in the top of subsurface runways. Be careful not to crush runways. Mark opened runways and revisit them 48 to 72 hours later. Runways that have had holes resealed within 72 hours should be baited.

Baiting Active Runways:

Make a hole in the top of the runway with a rod lightly larger than the diameter of the bait. Drop one worm into the runway, using the rod to push any exposed bait completely into the runway. Carefully reseal the runway with a small amount of dirt to exclude light. Repeat bait application every 5 to 10 feet of each active subsurface runway.

Determining Baiting Results:

Five (5) to 7 days after bait application, check for mole activity using the same procedure for determining initial activity. Return 48 to 72 hours later and retreat all active runs.

If Talpirid doesn't seem to work:

Here are five things to consider.

  1. Are you using gloves when applying the bait?   Disposable rubber or Nitrile gloves are best. Not using gloves may contaminate the bait with a human scent.
  2. Are you applying product before or after a heavy rain?   Rain and humidity can break down the bait faster than normal conditions.
  3. Is a chemical insecticide or fertilizer being applied to the lawn?   Chemicals that are applied before or after (within a few days) of applying talpirid can affect the bait by contamination. Hence, the chemical gets on the bait by seeping through the tunnels.
  4. Are you following the three step process that the package instructions/brochure indicate?
  5. Are you baiting properly once you find the main active run?   If you bait without ever doing a test to find the active tunnel(s), than the bait may never be encountered and eaten by moles.  You can test for an active tunnel by following the steps outlined on the package instructions.

  • 5 of 5 stars  Traps Don't Work???? TRY THIS!!!!
    By Ray in Munford, Tn on 07/07/2018

    I've been fighting moles for 20+ years without a lot of success. Yes, I've used traps but, only a few. And yes, one of them was the Talpirid Trap. I have only scratched the surface of my problem using this method. Traps do work sometimes but are very conditional in their use. If you want something that works, try the BAIT. It's close to 100% more effective than a trap and, it's 100% easier than a trap. Now, for those who gave this one or two stars...... Obviously, something is wrong if it's not working for you. Make sure you don't allow your "scent" to get on the bait or the mound or anything. If possible, don't touch anything with your bare hands. Just be patient and make sure it's an active tunnel. Don't get in a big hurry to drop a worm in the hole without first making sure. It's a tad pricey but, hey, it works!!!! I swear this works so good I'm buying stock in the company.

    5 of 5 stars  It worked!
    By Todd in Crittenden, KY on 06/15/2018

    My current dogs are not mole trackers like my old ones. The moles have been having a field day the last few years. I have tried the Big Box hardware stores version of this and never had success. I have tried their "Peanuts" without success. I tried the old school spring traps and the new plastic ones without success. About a week and a half ago I put one package of these Talpirid "worms" in the tunnels. I used latex gloves and a regular small branch to poke holes in the tunnels and cover the holes back up by laying a larger dirt clod over the hole. A few days ago, one of my dogs started digging about 6 inches down. He pulled out a very large dead mole. I guess he sensed it decaying. SUCCESS!! I have not seen any new activity since then. I assume their may be more dead underground unless this large guy was doing all of the damage by himself.

    4 of 5 stars  So far, so good!
    By Ron in 06831 on 05/04/2018

    It's only been a couple of weeks but this looks to be a big success. The key is to bait an active tunnel. Put a small dime-sized hole in a tunnel exposing it to light. If the mole quickly seals the hole in a few hours, bait that tunnel! Be patient. It takes a couple of days for them to die from the poison, and several more days to visually recognize any result but after two weeks the tunnels seem to be fading away.

    Started using a few years ago after we paid a service $400+ to get rid of moles. The rep left a partial pack with us. Googled the brand and the cost convinced me I could do it a lot cheaper. (since I watched the way he did it). Moles are back. Just waiting for some warmer weather. I'm a senior and do not like the cold

    By John in Plantsville on 11/17/2017

    To date, after two applications, talpirid worms appear to be working. Mole tunnels are a nuisance and have been multiplying while I reviewed options and cost. Need a couple more weeks to better determine value. So far I am happy.

QIs Talpirid safe for pets?
I have cats which love to catch moles.

A

Talpirid Mole Bait, when used directed on the product label, will be applied to areas that will for the most part be inaccessible to non-target animals. In most cases, moles that consume the bait will die under ground in their tunnels eliminating the worry that cats or other predatory animals will eat the carcass. Most well fed pets such as cats do not consume dead animals that they find, instead they tend to "play" with it. An animal the size of a cat would have to consume many dead moles for there to be any concern of secondary poisoning.

QHow many worms per tunnel; or sq ft, etc., is applied? I don't
I have no idea of how many worms to order.

AYou will need to bait every 5 to 10 feet of each active subsurface runway. With Mole bait the amount of tunnels will be what determines how much bait you will require. Most folks need about 10-20 worms per treatment depending on the number of tunnels/moles present. Each box of Talprid comes with 20 worms.

QWhat is the best season to treat for moles using Talpirid?
Now that we are closing on on fall, is it worth the expense to try to rid my yard now or better to wait till spring?

AMoles do not hibernate during the winter and you may find a lot of damage to your yard if you put off eliminating them now while they are still active. We recommend getting rid of moles whenever you see activity on your property.

QIs use of bromethalin safe to use for gopher/mole control near or in a vegetable garden
Is it carcinogenic? What is it's half life? Is it taken up into the plant, will it contaminate the soil and food from garden?

ABromethalin is the active ingredient in many rodent control products. Without knowing the specific product you are requesting information on we can only give you general answers. Bromethalin does not move through the soil and is not taken up systemically into plants. Bromethalin products cannot be used in a vegetable garden but instead should be used around the outside perimeter of the garden for mole/gopher control. Talpirid is the only Bromethalin product that we carry that is labeled for mole control and it will only last for about 14 days when used as directed on the product label.

QHow do I get rid of moles in my yard?
I seem to have a mole problem (plenty of bumped up lawn in the yard). How do I truly get rid of these guys? I just need them gone ASAP. Do you have specific traps I can use? What really gets rid of these guys?

A

There are many different ways to treat for moles. One of the more effective means of mole control is using Talpirid Bait. One Talprid mole bait worm contains a lethal dose and can kill in 24 hours. 

When you have mold activity in your yard it can in part be due to a plentiful food supply. Moles will feed on grubs, worms and other similar insects living in your turf. Many people in conjunction with using products designed to either trap, kill, or repel moles, will use a product like Dylox to kill the grubs and insects the moles are feeding on. By removing their food source it helps deter them from your yard. For full information on how to eradicate moles from your residence, see our section on Mole Control.

QWhat do I do if my dog got ahold of one of the Talpirid BAIT?
My dog dug into one of the tunnels and had one of the worms in her mouth, I pulled it out but now I'm wandering if it could've hurt her? She didn't digest it but it was on her mouth. Just want to make sure she'll be ok

A

Talpirid BAIT can harm or kill a dog if they have ingested enough of them.  If the one was not ingested she should be ok but you should always contact your vet for the best advice on what to look for and if any issues come up.

QHow many milligrams of Bromethalin in each Talpirid BAIT worm? I have a 50-lb. dog. Is it safe to use this product?

A

Each Talpirid BAIT worm weighs 5 grams and contains .025% Bromethalin.  A 50 lb. dog would have to eat multiple worms in order to ingest a fatal dose.  That being said, we do recommend preventing pets from digging the worms up and only using the worms in active runways so the moles are more likely to get it then a pet.

QCan Talpirid BAIT harm other wildlife?
i have wild bunnies in my yard. will the mole worms kill them if they eat it? will it affect all the ground around where it is placed?

A

Talpirid BAIT is to be put into the burrows where the moles are traveling and not just applied to above ground areas.  This application will prevent poisioning of other wild life animals including the bunnies in your yard.  However, there is no guarentee that it wont harm the bunnies if they were to go into the burrows and eat the worms.  Be cautious of where you apply the bait.  The Talpirid BAIT will not harm the surrounding ground where they are applied.  Please follow the product label for proper application and handling of this bait.
