APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS:

HAND APPLICATION:

Location of Runways: To locate gopher’s natural runway, probe about 6” to 8” inches from an active mound beginning on the flat side of the horseshoe-shaped depression. Using an iron bar, a strong stick, the probe from a Probe‘ n Funnel kit, a Gopher Bait Applicator bait dispensing probe, or a Gopher Getter Midget bait-dispensing probe, or other suitable implement, probe 8“ to 10” inches below the soil level. Soil resistance on probe will decrease when runway is entered.

APPLICATION DIRECTIONS:

1. GOPHER BAIT APPLICATOR METHOD: Turn hand probe unit upside down to attach or remove bait bottle which screws into the dispenser. The 1-lb. container for Gopher Getter Type 2 Bait by Wilco may be screwed directly into the dispenser. Otherwise, add the amount of bait needed to the bottle that comes with the Gopher Bait Applicator and screw the bottle into the dispenser. Using probe end, probe around mounds to locate runways (see “Locating runways” above.) Lift handle three times to deposit bait in each active runway. Pick up or bury any spilled bait immediately. Makes 2-7 bait sets per burrow system, depending upon the systems apparent length. For best results, this bait must be placed in the gophers’ active runway for four (4) consecutive days or until activity ceases. 

2. HAND PROBE AND FUNNEL METHODS: Enlarge probe hole(if necessary) to accommodate baiting. Use water proof gloves and a scooping device (preferably long-handled) to transfer the bait from container to the bait applicator. Insert one-half cup bait into each active runway through probe opening or through the funnel, if using the Probe’ n Funnel kit. Take care not to spill bait on the surface. Pick up any spilled bait immediately. Makes 2-7 bait sets per burrow system, depending upon the systems apparent length. For best results, this bait must be placed in the gophers’ active runway for four (4) consecutive days or until activity ceases. 

3. GOPHER GETTER MIDGET: Remove cap from built-in bait reservoir and fill with bait. Replace and tighten cap. Using probe, probe around mounds to locate runways. To deposit bait in each active runway, turn crank six full turns, stopping back at the closed position. For best results, this bait must be placed in the gophers’ active runway for four (4) days in a row or until activity ceases.

CLOSING RUNWAYS - After bait has been applied, cover probe opening with sod or dirt. Do not permit dirt to sift in or cover bait.

POST-APPLICATION DIRECTIONS:

Using waterproof gloves, collect and burn (where permitted) or bury all visible dead animals. Dispose of leftover bait according to pesticide disposal on product label.

Note: Read entire label and follow complete directions and use precautions.

    Gopher Getter Gets 'em

    By Dennis on 02/16/2017

    Follow the instructions. They have lots of tunnels. I punched more than one hole for each mound. Don't drop any 'food' on top of the ground. Now they rest in peace.

    POISON DID NOT WORK.

    By Linda on 09/28/2017

    I followed direction. Gophers dugged up more holes. I bought professional scram from do my own $120.00 it solved gopher problem in just one application. Its a big container of gopher poison but it served the purpose. I will have the gardeners apply the scram professional gopher poison quarterly to prevent gophers coming back destroying my front lawn. I called terminex to kill gophers. They charge $70.00 a month will come to kill poison once a month.

    Gopher bait Type 2

    By Ock-ky on 03/19/2018

    Gophers took the baits and we saw they ate them a lot. But still gophers roam around our back yard hills. The poison seems ineffective to gophers at all.

Q
Will rainfall reduce the effectiveness of Wilco Gopher Getter Type 2 Bait applied in tunnels?

It is going to rain next few days. Should I wait till next week (after rain) to apply this poison? If I apply it now and it then rains, will it reduce the effectiveness?

A

Since the Wilco Gopher Getter Type 2 Bait is applied directly in tunnels it would be protected from rain unless it was a heavy downpour that flooded the tunnels.  This bait must be placed in the gophers’ active runway for four (4) consecutive days or until activity ceases so if you would not be able to have a break in the rain to do so, then it would be best to wait until you had 4 clear days.
