Will Kaput Rat & Mouse Bait kill Prairie dogs?

I have moles and prairie dogs. If I treat to try to control the moles, wouldn't prairie dogs also be attracted to this as a food source and possibly eat it if it is in their feeding area? Or does this product not attract prairie dogs? I only want to get rid of some moles, not the prairie dogs.

Answer:

Kaput Rat & Mouse Bait is not labeled to control moles or prairie dogs.  As it does contain food based ingredients non-target animals can be attracted to the blox, but outside it would only be used tamper-resistant bait stations as directed on the product label. This limits non-target animal access.

Moles would not be attracted to it at all as it is used in stations above ground and they feed on live insects such as earthworms and grubs. Talpirid Mole Bait is the most popular bait for moles themselves. When used directed on the product label, will be applied to areas that will for the most part be inaccessible to non-target animals.
