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.
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.
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.

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.
Is this poisonous to me?
A shopper on Dec 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would assume this is extremely poisonous to all mammals, at least. You should read the label carefully in that regard. Therefore, it is probably very poisonous for any dogs or livestock that you may have as well. When I use this product, I never leave it out or leave it exposed on top of the ground. I only use it in underground gopher holes.
I live in Goodyear Arizona. What store can I purchase this product from?
Mobabi on Jan 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Mobabi -
I live in El Cajon, CA which has similar though a little cooler weather patterns than Goodyear AZ. I purchased my Gopher Bait 50 from Solutions Pest and Lawn last year On Line, and it has really helped cut down my gopher population infestation! The key is the strychnine. Other chemical baits are not as effective. I highly recommend you go with Solutions for your gopher problems!

can this be use to kill moles?
Marks on Jan 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: As far as I know, yes. I use it for gophers and ground squirrels. My advice would be to walk or flatten the runs and find the active ones that reapear. They are good at smelling so use rubber gloves. Pen a hole and deposet about a tablespoon. Cover the hole. Do not put the dirt back. Do this in several places. You do not want pets to get this stuff. It is very good at what it is for. I like it.
Can it be used safely in orchards?
A shopper on Dec 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I only use it in my lawn and always under the ground. It is highly poisonous. I would not use it near edible plants, because of the risk that the strychnine is absorbed by the plants. I have no certainty that it works on gophers. I have been using the product but gopher activity goes on.

gopher bait 50
So far the activity in my lawn seems to have stopped. Have tried just about every product
available in Ca. with no success.Using a probe that
drops the bait in the tunnel. I've kept after it for
about three weeks adding new bait to areas of
activity and it looks to have worked! Next time I'm buying the five pound package.

Colorado dead Gopher
Had Gopher mounds in back yard. Dug down and placed pellets in burrow, it has now been two weeks and have no new mounds. Based on this I can assume the dirty rat was killed. ( actually a Gopher).

Excellent Product
I've been battling gophers for over 2 years with little success. I tried just about everything I could find and nothing worked. Until I came across Gopher Bait 50 Strychnine. Treated over 20 gopher mounds and haven't seen one since. Product does what it advertises. Highly recommend this product.
