If moles are causing havoc on your lawn, Talpirid Mole Bait can help.

Talpirid mole bait is the first and only bait designed and developed to effectively eliminate moles without the use of traps.

Talpirid mole bait looks like worms, one of the main food sources of moles. The product arrives ready to use for easy baiting.

Moles may create sub-surface tunnels in lawns, indicated by mounds of earth and ridges in gardens and vegetation. When the tunnels are beneath grass, the grass will usually turn yellow or brown. These tunnels are also referred to as active runways.

If you see mole activity in your lawn, you must first determine which tunnels are currently being used before baiting. Take a wooden rod or your finger and poke holes in the tops of mole tunnels, spacing the holes 5 to 7 feet apart. Mark these holes with lawn flags if needed.

After 48 hours, return to the mole tunnels and see which holes have been filled in with dirt. Holes that have been filled in indicate active tunnels.

Once you have established which tunnels are active it is time to bait. While wearing gloves, make holes 5 to 10 feet apart along active tunnels using a rod. Place 1 bait worm in each hole and cover the holes with dirt. Make sure the bait worm is completely submerged into the tunnel and the hole is completely covered with dirt and does not allow light into the tunnel. 

Some moles make tunnels deep below the surface of the lawn, only indicated by random piles of dirt around the lawn. For these deep tunnels, use a large rod or broom handle to make holes in the large piles of dirt that arise in the lawn, 1 hole per dirt pile. After 2 or 3 days, return to the dirt piles and see which have been recovered. The dirt piles that have been recovered indicate active tunnels deep beneath the surface of the lawn.

Bait each active dirt pile, using 1 Talpirid mole bait worm per pile. Again, cover the holes made for baiting with dirt so as not to allow light into the dirt pile. 

For both sub-surface tunnels and deep tunnels, it is important that you use gloves when baiting so as not to confuse moles with your own personal scent. Your scent to cause moles to avoid the bait, rendering the bait ineffective.

Return to your bait sites 5 to 7 days after baiting and make holes with rods along sub-surface tunnels and in large dirt piles, just as you did to determine which tunnels were active. After 2 to 3 days, check to see if any of the holes have been covered with dirt. If they have, that means there are still active moles. Retreat with more Talpirid mole bait worms.
If the holes have not been recovered in dirt, you can safely assume that the baiting treatment has worked.

Make sure to read the full product label carefully to safely and effectively use Talpirid Mole Bait.
