KAPUT GROUND SQUIRREL BAIT FOR GROUND SQUIRREL CONTROL

 

Did you know that 20 ground squirrels can eat as much as one grazing sheep, or that 200 squirrels can eat as much as 1,000 pounds of foraging and grazing land?

 

In California alone, ground squirrels cause $30 to $50 million per year in agricultural and land damage. These pests often portrayed as easy-going and amicable can destroy your field crops and injury your beneficial and ornamental trees by gnawing on their bark, and cause irreparable damage to your yard and home garden.

 

Not to mention the damage they can cause if they get indoors, inside your property, where insulation, cables, electrical wiring, and everything they can get their teeth on will be in danger. But that’s not all, squirrels can bring along with them fleas that also carry potential diseases with them and often turn to other hosts, which end up being your pets and loved ones.

 

At Solutions Pest and Lawn, we believe that when dealing with a pest infestation of any kind, it’s often better to treat the infestation with a variety of methods that can drive away your pests and kill them for good.

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.
Will this product work on other than California ground squirrels?
A shopper on May 23, 2018

Can it kill Florida squirrells?
nydia w on Jul 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: That I do no know. I do know that the California ground squirrels eat it up. I presume it kills them if I keep them fed until they die in the ground. It is one of three methods I use to control the varmints: poison, live trap, and snap-trap. Kaput has an informative site.
will this product kill rabbits? If not, what can I use to kill rabbits besides a gun?
A shopper on Jul 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is the best product I have found for killing Ground Squirrels and Rabbit's.
Will it kill owls that eat poisoned squirrels?
A shopper on Jun 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It shouldn't. The killing agent in this product is not a "poison" as most people think. The ingredient is cumadin, which is a blood thinner like people take. The cumadin is mixed with the oats and has to be consumed by the rodent over the course of several days. They theory is the animal will continue to consume the product over a week or so and then their blood will eventually reach the point of hemorrhaging internally. In addition, when the squirrels reach this point they have remained in their burrows. Even if an owl consumed the entire dead squirrel, I don't believe it would reach levels of cumadin to kill it. Therefore, it is considered "safe" in terms of no second kill ingredients as if a traditional poision was consumed and remaining in the dead animal.
Will this kill gophers also?
Judie on Jul 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have only used the Kaput Ground Squirrel Bait in bait stations where only the squirrels could eat it. If the gophers would eat it and you could get it into the holes in sufficient quantity it probably would work.
Will this bait also eleminate tree squirrels?
A shopper on Mar 28, 2018

Will it work for Chipmunks?
Herb R on Jul 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No idea. No chipmunks here.
Is it safe around my dog and cat?
A shopper on May 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, you will need to keep this out of reach of your pets, this is poison.

We recommend using the bait stations for squirrels to keep your pets safe and not waste bait.

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.
Will kaput kill other species birds etc?
Ruben on Aug 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This product does have the potential to harm non-intended animal species and birds if they are to consume it. Place products carefully in areas where only squirrels can get to it.
I know I HAVE SOME ANIMAL IN MY ATTIIC I CAN HEAR IT EATTING SOUNDS LIKE BONES. AND I NEEDA SOULUTION?
Denise on Aug 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You may have to do a little inspection to see what type of animal it is so you can have a more focused treatment option when it comes to products. From your direction it may be a rodent so a combination of traps and rodent bait (such as Eratication) could be a good start to treat your attic and eliminate the problem.

Patty H on Aug 3, 2018

Very effective for California ground squirrels
We had an acre orchard on the Central Coast suddenly overrun over the last 2 years with ground squirrels. We followed the directions and they disappeared completely. But we understand we need to destroy their habitat now and probably do some maintenance feeding over time to keep new squirrels from entering the orchard.

Pretty Good Stuff
I was stunned, shocked and amazed at how well this stuff worked for a non-restricted use pesticide. Here in CA we can't use anything much that's effective, so I kept my expectations pretty low. I'm happy and satisfied--they ate all I had, so I ordered more but for now (for now) there's no more squirrels invading and infesting camp. And I'm ready for 'em next time. Five Stars.

Too Soon To Really Rate
I originally purchased the 5 pound bag. The squirrels do not come out every day, but do eat it when out. They pretty much only nibble a little at a time. Eventually they eat all that I put out. I have been using it over a week now, but they keep appearing and eating. They always go back in their holes so there is no way to determine if some got killed and there are many more squirrels in the family or colony, or whatever the grouping is called. I just purchased the 25 pound bag and will continue to feed. I may never kill them all so it would be difficult to determine how many was killed.
