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 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.

Can you pour the bait down the burrow hole? I have multiple holes at the edge of my home.
A shopper on Apr 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not sure I only tried with bait stations seem to work pretty well that way since they can take turns getting to bait I think if you put bait into hole others won't have opportunity to get to the bait be cause I believe they have there own entrances and exits that they use even tho it may be a big burrows
How do I keep my cat away from getting into bait in platform traps?
Linnell B on Feb 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I made my own bait stations out of 5" pvc pipe (T-shape). You can also buy them but they are very easy to make. You pour the bait down the T's longest leg which keeps the bait at the center of the pipe. Depending on the size of your rodent, you could also use a smaller PVC pipe so that a cat couldn't fit if it decided it wanted to venture into the bait trap. A few sprinkles of bait are likely to make their way outside of the bait station onto the ground, but if you're careful when you pour it in to keep it in the center, I did not find that the rodents spread or left any outside of the bait station. We have a dog and she left the stations alone and didn't care about the bait. If your cat likes tight places it probably isn't a good idea to use it and the bait stations. But if not, although there is always a chance, I doubt the cat would even care for the bait as it is a treated grain, generally unattractive to cats? It was a huge success to rid us of hole digging squirrels and I'll treat with it again this spring. Hope this helps!

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.

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.

Ground Squirrel Control
I could count 20+ ground squirrels every morning. New holes were popping up every day and the little ones were starting to come out. They were starting to get into my backyard. I ordered the Kaput and they ate it like candy. At the end of the 7th day the count was barely there. I have already recommended it to all my neighbors. If you have growing squirrel problems then this is a must.

Seems to be helping with my problem
My property backs up to an undeveloped hill, and I know there is an endless supply of ground squirrels out there! This year, the damage to my landscape vegetation became intolerable, so I moved up from "repel" to "bait" to control the situation. There does seem to be a reduction of activity on my property as judging from fewer new holes and less damage to my vegetation. I don't know if there are any actual deaths being caused by the bait, but it disappears from the bait stations every day or so - they seem to prefer it to my vegetation at any rate!

Good product.
One application and the ground squirrel population is noticeably down. I will continue through the summer and hopefully we will see even more improvement. I don't think I will ever get rid of them entirely, however, the bait seems to be keeping the situation under control.

I would definitely recommend this product. It is the most effective squirrel bait that I have found (this is my second 25 lb tub). And, relative to other high quality baits, it is very cost effective. Ed
