For Use :
Bait may only be applied at the use sites and by the application methods listed on the label.
Bait must be applied directly into pocket gopher burrow systems.
Do not apply this product above the ground surface.
Do not apply this product by use of mechanical burrow machines or any other type of mechanical application equipment, including mechanized probes.
Do not broadcast bait.
Place bait in main runways: To locate main runways, probe 12-18 inches from the surface mound on the side which is flattened or depressed using a burrow probe or smooth metal rod. When resistance on probe suddenly decreases, probe is in the main runway. Open the runway with the probe, a spade or shovel. Place one Bait Block into each opening of the runway and cover the opening securely to exclude light. Do not permit the loose soil to cover bait.
Place baits at two or three locations in each main burrow (runway) system. A pocket gopher will normally travel to all portions of its burrow system within ten a few days. As some gophers may die above ground, check the area periodically for 10-15 days after treatment. Bury or incinerate (if permitted locally) any dead animals found.
Follow-Up: Wearing waterproof gloves, collect and dispose of dead, exposed animals. Dispose of leftover bait in accordance with disposal instructions on the label. If reinfestation does occur, repeat treatment.
If pocket gopher activity persists 2 weeks after treatment, bait burrow the second time.
