If you have a pocket gopher problem, gophers are not only feeding on the roots of your plants they are stunting the growh of plants and killing them.

How To Apply KAPUT-D POCKET GOPHER BAIT

The product is available in 5-lb, 10-lb, 30-lb pail and a 50-lb bag are available.  After initial treatment, if fresh mounds appear after 2 -3 weeks, repeat treatment. Before use, please read the entire label and follow all use directions and use precautions.

 

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.

WHERE TO USE

HOW TO USE

 

Remember to read the whole label before using including all labeled instructions, precautions, and warnings and make sure to wear the appropriate personal protective equipment recommended on the label (click here to buy personal protective equipment).

 

This product can be used, and should be used, in unison with the Kaput-D Big Boy Gopher Bait Applicator for easier application and to ensure the best possible placement of bait.

 

Before beginning your gopher hunt make sure to identify your mounds as gopher mounds and not as a mole mound. Mole mounds then to be circular and round shaped, whereas gopher mounds tend to be shaped more like a kidney.

 

A gopher mound also tends to be up to a foot tall and a foot to two feet in diameter, and they will also not have surface tunnels. Instead, gopher mounds have lateral tunnels that are plugged with soil to keep intruders out. These tunnels are usually a couple of inches to several feet under the ground.

 

To locate a gopher mound use a long metal probe and go to your nearest raised mound. Move a couple of inches away from the raised mound and probe the ground at a 45-degree angle. Keep probing the ground until you feel no resistance. If when sticking the metal probe the ground beneath gives away easily and your metal probe goes deep underground, you have located the tunnel.

 

There are four application methods when using this product, for detailed instructions for the four applications which include, manual application, teaspoon application, gopher underground bait station application and hand bait applicator application check the label.

 

The first application method is manual. Using a pointed long metal probe, once the gopher mound has been identified, create a small opening by sticking probe around the mound. Once the burrow has been penetrated and a deep opening has been created inside the burrow pull out the metal probe. Insert a funnel into the opening and apply ½  a cup of product into the burrow. After inserting the product remove probe and plug the hole with leaves or grass to prevent light from entering the tunnel or soil from covering the bait. Repeat the treatment if fresh mound appears after 2 to 3 weeks after application.

 

The second application is done using a long-handled teaspoon. Locate a fresh mound and uncover the plug created by the gopher. Carefully deposit ½ a cup of the product as far inside as possible inside the burrow. Close the opening with soil being careful not to cover the bait. Repeat application if fresh mound appears after 2 to 3 weeks.

 

To apply with a hand probe applicator, first, locate a fresh mound. Insert the metal tip of the applicator into the burrow making sure to penetration the soil. You will know you have penetrated the burrow when the soil gives off little resistance and tip penetrates deep underground. Once you have inserted the applicator deep underground open the applicator for 2 to 3 seconds to dispense ½ a cup of product into the burrow. Close the applicator and plug the hole with grass or similar material to close to hole. Repeat application if after 2 to 3 weeks a fresh mound appears.

 

TIP: You can make multiple applications in all the mounds that have formed in your lawn for great effectiveness.

 

CONCLUSION

 

This incredible product, manufactured by Kaput, takes into account years of research to provide an efficient and definitive way to combat gophers.

 

Because this product’s active ingredient is Diphacinone, it will prove superbly deadly to gophers while reducing risk to other wildlife, and if pest or human were to come in contact with it, its antidote of Vitamin K1 is readily available.

 

This incredible product works better than most gopher baits because it can be transported to the nest, where other gophers may be found proving to be one of the most efficient ways to deal with pesky gophers.

Get out and stay out
I live in the mountains of Colorado and have a whole lot of critters running around. Kaput bait helps in keeping them at bay. I use kaput in a bait station and it is an effective way to handle this problem.

Effective on pack rats
I have been using this product for several years (name has changed but still the same) I use it to control pack rats under a remote cabin in NM that has a skirt around the foundation. I am cautious about keeping my dogs away from it and a little worried about the food chain. You need to be persistent with the application of the bait.

Great product , does exactly as indicated . I was impressed with the quality of the applicator and effectiveness of the bait .
Although it took a few weeks to see results , the product worked great and cleared our 3 acres .
Haven’t seen any sign of them in over 3 months !
I applied the product generously ( 4to 6 1/2 turns of the crank , more when a nest was found ) then raked the mound flat so I could easily spot new mounds in the morning .

Kaput is the correct word
Working gophers in soccer and school fields has presented several issues, I do not have in pastures and farm land, here is the Willamette Valley, Oregon. The wheat based product works more consistantly than others I have tried. The product is quite simple to apply with the applicator. The school fields had been ignored for years, and there are empty open fields outside the perimeter. Gopher paradise, with litterly freeway access to the feeding grounds. Before I started using Kaput, I trapped 108gophers in one field segment. Now I use Kaput and traps, depending on the set, with much greater success. For me, it is a proven solution.
