Do gophers usually die in or out of the tunnel?
Sharon I on Aug 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have found a mixed blend. So far I have only found 5 corpses of striped gophers on my farm. I surmise that some crawl out of the hole and die there. Others just die down there hole. I know this much; I had about 25 to 30 striped gophers and for the past 3 weeks I have seen none and found none. Believe me, I have been hunting for the little bastards. I should remind you that the reason I only found 5 bodies is because I also have a pair of coyote's and a weasel running around. They might be eating the dead gophers. Yes, the coyote's and weasel are doing just fine.
Where do the gophers usually die?
Sharon I on Aug 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: pretty easy answer , I use a tool to place the bait into the gopher burrow and I have probably terminated a 15 to 20 gophers without ever seeing a gopher. They die in the burrow , this prevent gophers from causing problems with other wildlife or pets although I do have concerns about dogs that might smell and dig up the dead gopher.
Is this an organic product?
Michael D on Aug 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Strychnine is a poisonous molecule from plants. As is the case with many substances from nature, the plants’ poisonous properties were known for centuries, long before chemists uncovered any active ingredients. Strychnine itself was discovered in 1818. Chemists classify strychnine as an alkaloid, a nitrogen-atom containing, naturally occurring compound. That puts strychnine in the same group as morphine, caffeine, nicotine, cocaine, and other molecules too numerous to mention.
Does this product work for ground squirrels also?
A shopper on Sep 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have not tried Gopher Bait 50 on ground squirrels. It might work but the texture and smell is different from squirrel bait. Wilco squirrel bait is pellets of crushed plant greens. Looks and smells like alfalfa that squirrels like. Bait 50 is small seeds, not the favorite food squirrels that would likely get lost in the dirt. The strychnine is powerful so might be worth a try.
Can your product be used in accordance with the label for use inside a green house?
A shopper on Sep 4, 2017

Just a good product
I will have to admit that I had a few concerns about using this product but using the proper tool to deposit the bait in the gopher's tunnel worked much better than expected. Had a bad gopher problem but after about two weeks all evidence of gophers are gone. Following directions prevented any problems with pets making contact with the bait.

The killing spree~~bait does work
This bait does work but you have to stay on top of the mounds as they appear in your yard. My aim is to finally chase them all over to the neighbors yard.

An excellent poison.
I am completely impressed with the product and will most certainly purchase more. I have been handing some out to farmers near my farm. Never did ask them if they where satisfied. The first time I used it; at about 1300 hours and around 1800 hours I had found 2 dead gophers. I haven't seen a kill count like this since my days in Vietnam. U.S. MARINE CORPS---Vietnam December 1968 to September 1970. You have created a positive killing product. Thank you.

End of gopher problem
I had a terrible problem with pocket gophers. Tried another well known product, but the "peanuts" were kicked out of the tunnels and the gophers continued to dine on anything in their path. Last summer I tried strychnine bait. It took a lot of work to treat all the mounds which showed up every morning, but this year there haven't been any new mounds at all until just this week when there were three of them which most likely were from the same gopher. I treated them immediately and have seen no new activity.
