Kaput-D Big Boy Gopher Bait Applicator

Kaput-D Big Boy Gopher Bait Applicator

Do you have a gopher problem? Are you experiencing reduced usable acreage due to pocket gophers? If you have a pocket gopher problem, gophers are not only feeding on the roots of your plants they are stuning plant growth and killing plants. Gophers are eating your profits.


Have you been seeking an effective way to place gopher bait underground inside burrows? Years of scientific research and testing have helped Scimetrics provide Kaput pocket gopher bait designed to help solve your problems with less risk to you and to wildlife.


Now applying gopher bait is made easier with Kaput-D Big Boy Gopher Bait Applicators. No special training is required for application. Read the label carefully and follow directions. Simply fill the bait holder and open the lever. The lever opens a door in the tip of the applicator. The bait slides down the tube and into the burrow, it's that simple!


Probe into the ground around the mounds. When the probe hits a tunnel it sinks in with a loss of resistence. To place bait into the burrow, open the lever for 2 to 3 seconds or rotate the lever 2 to 3 times. No matter what method you use, gophers will take most of the bait back to the nest. This will help control invading pocket gophers to take over the tunnels after the current inhabitants are eliminated.


The Kaput system reduces risk to birds and wildlife because it stays underground. You can do tests but be sure to cover any burrow you open. Kaput is a brand you can trust for gopher control. Order it today from us and we will ship it to you for free!

The new bait requires 1/2 cup how much does the tool release?
A shopper on Jun 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I can't tell you an exact amount but it releases an amount based on how far you open the release. I bought a 10 pound bucket of bait and filled up the entire container. I have only refilled the container once and have more than half the bucket left.
How long is the probe? I mean how deep does the applicator go to reach the deeper gopher burrows ?
Michael O on Mar 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It will reach the tunnel. You don't go into the mound, you go around the edge of the mound until the probe goes down easily, that will be the tunnel. Then you try to follow the tunnel to deliver more bait.
How much bait does the hopper hold?
How wide is hopper opening where you pour bait into?
cynthia l on Nov 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Big Boy will hold 3lbs of product and is 4 inches long and 3 inches wide on the hopper.
does this applicator come with bait?
A shopper on Jul 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No. Bait is sold separately.
After depositing the bait, when you remove the probe, do you leave the probe hole open or do you fill it? Just the hole the probe makes?
Bill S on Jul 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You would want to cover the hole up.
Is it made in the USA?
Ben on May 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Kaput-D Big Boy is manufactured in the United States.
How do you know you're in the hole without digging? Did you find this tool effective?
sandy on Jan 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Are you asking how you know if you are in the gopher run?
These holes will be plugged with soil after the gopher is done feeding at a location. Look for fresh, plugged "feeder holes" with grass or other plants chewed or eaten around perimeter of hole.
