Product Overview

Wilco Ground Squirrel Bait is a bait which ground squirrels find irresistible and highly palatable. The large size pellets encourage squirrels to consume it immediately rather than store it. The ingredients consist of cracked corn, cottonseed mean, corn meal, and almonds. The active ingredient is Diphacinone, which reduces the possibility of secondary or non-target poisoning. Bait should always be used with tamper-resistant bait stations. No pre-baiting is required.

  • Apply the bait in a secured, tamper-resistant bait station. These stations must be resistant to destruction by dogs and by children under six years of age, and must be constructed and used in ways which prevent such children from reaching into bait compartments and obtaining bait. Stations must be secured so that they cannot be overturned by young children, pets or winds. Stations used in areas open to livestock and/or non-target wildlife must be secured so that the units cannot be readily overturned by any non-target animals that have access to them.
  • Dispose the bait container and unused, spoiled and unconsumed bait as specified on label.

    Love it!

    By Lori on 07/20/2016

    I've had the best luck dropping the pellets directly into the squirrel holes vs using the bait box. The pellets are eaten by the next day and I stop seeing the squirrels, until about 2 weeks later, when the next batch hatches, then I just bait the holes again. Definitely knocked down our squirrel population!

    Wilco Ground Squirrel Bait

    By Linda on 06/02/2016

    This does not work!! The squirrels have turned their noses to the bait and haven't taken any pellets. It is advertised to be "irresistible" to the squirrels but it's not.

    The ONLY thing that works for us

    By Lori on 05/31/2017

    This bait is the only thing that the ground squirrels in our area will eat. We have over 120 olive trees and the squirrels burrow everywhere in the roots of the trees. I fill up my trap at least once a week when the warm weather starts.

    Wilco Ground Squirrl Bait

    By Michael on 06/02/2017

    The Ground Squirrls have not eaten any of the Wilco Ground Squirrl Bait and will not even go into the Bate trap. I tried different locations. This was a big waist of money for me.

Q
Do you sell dcq products for ground squirrel eradication in bulk to the general public?

I live just outside San Diego, CA and have a 10 acre vineyard. We are having a major infestation of ground squirrels now. I need to put down several bait stations and need to buy it in bulk. I am looking to purchase about 50# of squirrel bait/poison to put in my bait stations made of 4" pvc.

A

We do no sell DCQ products, however we do sell Wilco Ground Squirrel Bait that can be shipped to California. Also please take a look at the Wilco Ground Squirrel Bait Station to get an idea of how large the holes are. They recommend that you fill these up with the bait. That would give you an idea of how much bait is in the container as well.
