APPLICATION DIRECTIONS FOR POCKET GOPHERS
Apply bait to control pocket gophers using one of the two methods outlined below:
PLUG REMOVAL BAITING:
Burrowing pocket gophers (thomomys spp. and Geomys spp.) throw out low, fan shaped mounds on either side of their underground tunnel. These lateral tunnels coming to the surface are on the flat side of the fan and are plugged with soil. Using a long-handled spoon, carefully remove the plug. Insert one teaspoon of bait as far down as possible. Reclose opening, being careful not to cover bait with soil.
MAIN RUNWAY BAITING: To locate main runways, probe about 6 to 8 inches away from mounds by use of an iron bar, a strong stick, or other suitable implement. Resistance on probe will drop suddenly and probe will fall about two inches when main runway is entered. Carefully enlarge the opening to accomodate insertion of the bait. Insert one teaspoon of bait into each active tunnel. Carefully close the hole with a stone, sod, or soil. Take care not to cover bait with soil.
FOLLOW UP Wearing waterproof gloves, collect and dispose of all dead, exposed animals and of leftover bait in accordance with disposal instructions. Use detergent and hot water to wash spoons. Do not use spoons for mixing, holding or transferring food or feed. If reinfesation does occur, repeat treatment
