I've used this a number of times and I feel it seems like a hit or miss. I have four bait stations distributed properly in a very small area and the varmints seem to avoid them because I check if they've eaten what's inside.
That being said, maybe they ate just enough because in the past few days I haven't seen them... Is it the heat or did they meet their demise?! I will listen for their chirp sound and if I don't hear it we will know their fate!
bought a canister at tractor supply yesterday and put some pellets around the burrows. they are eating this stuff up as fast as I can replace it. however, we'll monitor the the squirrel activity to see if it really puts an end to the squirrel problem.
This year Wilco has increased the size of the pellets, do not know if that affected the squirrels inability to get back to their burrows to die, making it necessary to pick up and dispose of the dead ones. Or perhaps the formula changed?
After having a ground squirrel problem for years they were just about to take over my property. You could look out the front window toward the barn any morning and see dozens of the little buggers running all over the place. I have tried to fill in their burrows but they just dig them out again. I got serious and put out three bait containers in one area and kept them full for a week. After that they seems to stop eating the bait so I would move to a new location. Lots of bait going into those three containers. About 28 pounds so far and I have lots of property to cover yet. The population is going down. That's GOOD!
