Application

Baiting: Manually scatter 1/2 cup of bait (approximately 2 1/2 ounces or 70 grams) on ground or in modified bait stations (inverted "T" with "elbows" or platform station) near each burrow opening being used by California ground squirrels (See more information in Endangered Species Considerations). The area around each burrow over which bait is distributed may be no larger than 50 square feet (e.g. a circular area no more than 8 feet in diameter). Re-apply bait to the same area at intervals of 2 to 3 days for a total of 3 to 4 applications, if ground squirrels remain active and continue to consume bait. A continuous supply of bait is needed for 6 to 12 days to ensure that all squirrels present have opportunity to feed on bait for at least 5 consecutive days. Do not exceed the maximum application rate of 1/2 cup per burrow for 4 applications.

Use Restrictions: This product may only be used to control California ground squirrels (Spermophilus Beechey) around buildings (including areas such as yards and flower gardens) in secured, tamper-resistant bait stations. The insecticide in this product may act systemically to aid in the reduction of fleas that infest California ground squirrels. The types of fleas that might be controlled include, but are not necessarily limited to, Oropsylla montana and Hoplopsyllus anomalus. Use only for the sites, pests and applilcation methods described on the label. Do not broadcast this product.

Baiting: Secure bait stations at locations where they will be readily accessible to California ground squirrels, preferably near active burrows. Secure stations 20 to 100 feet apart, depending upon density of the population. Wear waterproof gloves and use a long handled scooping device to transfer bait from the container to the station. Use 2 to 4 pounds of bait per station. Check bait stations frequently to insure that an uninterrupted supply of bait is always available for at least 15 days, or until there no longer are any signs of feeding.

Will Kaput ground squirrel bait work on Georgia ground squirrels?
A shopper on Nov 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It should. Build a bait station and keep it filled for a few weeks. Should work on tree squirrels, too. I have a macadamia nut grove and it reduced the population.
How long after digestion does it take to work?
Ron on Jul 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: My understanding is that it does not kill them with a single serving. You first start filling your bait station with actual grain and then a week later add the Kaput and refill as long as it is being eaten. We had some large dens with increasing activity and then after this protocol we have no more ground squirrels. It took about 1 1/2-2 weeks from start to finish.
i understand this product is for ground squirrels but hypothetically if a gray or fox squirrel were to consume this would it work effectively?......hypothetically
holland on Feb 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: For what it's worth, it's legal to poison fox squirrels in California. They are viewed as an invasive pest here. Not sure if it's legal to use the poison for a pest not described on the label though and the law in other states may differ, especially in the east where they are native.

David on Nov 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Really depends, the Kaput Ground Squirrel Bait would be toxic if ingested in the correct amounts to your animal, Most dogs would probably show some interest in the small granular bait. Best to follow application recommendations on the product label.

It works
Squirrels have been digging holes in our yard and beginning to do damage. They have burrowed underground and come out of our stone retaining walls, bringing with them in their exit lots of back fill from the walls. I made my own bait stations with 3-5" black PVC pipe and have left them by the holes. The squirrels (ours are a larger variety of squirrel) and they gobble it up and take it back to their hideouts. I've seen a noticable difference in the squirrel population and any new holes. So relieved to find an alternative that works. They outsmarted the Squirrel-n-ator cages and stopped coming; and I caught birds instead of squirrels in my Conabear traps. Definitely recommend--it is effective, not messy, and other than refilling and/or moving the bait stations, does not create more work for you (assuming the squirrils have died in their holes). They take the treated seed back into their holes and it is a gift that keeps on giving. Using the bait stations keeps it out of reach from our med-large size dog, who happens to be a picky eater anyway, and is rarely outside.

Kaput, a work in progress
Started using Kaput ground squirrel bait (in bait feeders) a couple of months back. My property backs up to an open property so I had a quite a number of them in the area. When they started to dig under my house I started the battle. Over the last 3 weeks I've seen a huge in reduction to the number of squirrels and they have not gotten under the house again (yet). They are still eating the bait but much more slowly. I have not seen any dead ones yet but I believe the bait is working as expected.

It Works
I would recommend this product especially in CA. My house was built in 1979 and I was told I had to use pest control (over a thousand dollars a year). According to Ca law, you can use this product if your house is as old as mine. My neighbors love me because I get rid of their pests for free. It takes awhile and then the ground squirrels are gone. It really works. Be sure you make a bait trap; ask company how. I love this product and it works on other rodents as well.
