Control The Mole With Talpirid Mole Bait


mole in holeThere’s nothing more frustrating than investing valuable time and money on taking care of your lawn or purchasing some greenery to practice your golf swing only to have it be ransacked by intruders like the irritating mole. While moles do bring some benefits through their underground habits like aerating the soil and reducing grubs, for homeowners they do more harm than good through their digging and tunnel making.


Contrary to popular belief, Moles aren’t rodents but are actually mammals which feed primarily upon insects. Another misconception is that moles can live on your lawn. Mole actually live in the wood and merely just visit lawns of homeowners from time to time using a well-established underground tunnelling system. The main damage done by moles to lawns are when they dig and crawl out of surface tunnels, which are holes they create to come out from underground. This can be a nightmare to those who keep a well-maintained and groomed lawn.


Controlling moles has been a difficult challenge for homeowners and landscapers to overcome. Chemicals and repellents have been known to be ineffective and because of the mobile nature of the mole, it is something the mole can easily maneuver around and evade. Moles are expert diggers, so if you try to stomp their mole hills down, they’ll just re-dig and cause an even greater mess. But after careful study of the moles habits, tendencies and behaviors, there is an effective solution that can work and Solutions Pest and Lawn carries the answer in the form of: Talpirid Mole Bait

How Talpirid Mole Bait Works

Baiting moles in the past was ineffective because moles would catch on to attempts to poison them with baits that were not palatable to them. But with Talpirid mole bait, moles would not be able to resist because the pesticide are molded into the shape and look of moles favorite food. It even tastes like a worm.  Talpirid mole bait is designed, developed and scientifically proven to kill moles, tricking moles into believing their eating their regular diet. The bait worm contains a lethal dose and each box contains 20 worms, enough to kill a whole family of moles.


How To Apply


Before applying Talpirid Mole Bait, it would be best to first observe the ideal treatment area which should typically be where you have seen the most mole activity. This is usually indicated by any surface holes or dirt mounds that have been made the the moles. These usually look like cones due to the dirt that had been pushed up from the burrowing moles.


Another good treatment area may be found through observing a possible network of subsurface runways in the turf. Subsurface runways are indicated by raised ridges of plantlife and soil caused by moles foraging for food just below the surface of the soil. These runways can be especially noticeable when the grass above them has turned yellow.

  • Start by making a hole in the top of the runway with a rod slightly larger than the diameter of the bait. Drop one worm into the runway, using the rod to push any exposed bait completely into the runway.

  • It should be noted that you wear disposable gloves when you handle and place the Talpirid worms so they are not contaminated by your scent.

  • Carefully reseal the runway with a small amount of dirt to exclude light. Repeat bait application every 5 to 10 feet of each active subsurface runway.

  • After applying the bait worms, wait about 5 to 7 days to check for mole activity. If necessary reapply with the rest of the worms following the same procedure.


It’s just that simple. If for some reason the baiting procedure does not work or get rid of the moles, it could be possible that the procedure was not followed properly, or the weather conditions may have affected the treatment and broke down the bait (especially if it had rained before or after application). There could also be a chance that you baited in a place where mole activity and mole runs aren’t carried out so the moles never come into contact with the bait.


So are you ready to give it a try and rid yourself of your mole problem for good? Order Talpirid Mole Bait from Solutions today!

How many worm do you place in hole?
Deborah L on Jan 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You will want to place one worm of Talpirid in the active runs that are located. MAIN UNDERGROUND TUNNELS AND CONICAL MOUNDS: Moles construct deeper tunnels
that are not visible from the surface. These deep tunnels systems are often marked by a series of conical
mounds (piles of dirt) 4 to 12 inches high formed when dirt is pushed to the surface when moles construct
these tunnels. To locate deep tunnels, push a probe, such as a broom handle, into the soil between
mounds. When the probe enters a tunnel, the resistance on the probe will decrease rapidly. Mark opened
tunnels and revisit them 48 to 72 hours later. Runways that have had holes resealed within 72 hours
should be baited.
To bait deep tunnels, drop one TALPIRID worm through the probe hole, using the probe to push the bait
completely into the tunnel. Cover the hole with a piece of sod, a small rock or a piece of newspaper to
allow for visual inspection. Repeat bait application every 5 to 10 feet of each active deep tunnel and
within 5 feet of each active conical mound. Check for the effects of treatment 5 to 7 days after bait
application using the same procedure for determining tunnel location. Return 48 to 72 hours later and
retreat all active tunnel systems.
Harmful to pets?
A shopper on Oct 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm not an expert but I will say since the talparid worms are buried in the tunnel, approx. 1" below ground level the pet would have to dig up the worms. Plus the Talparid worms mimic earth worms. I have never heard of pets digging up the lawn to eat earthworms. I have an outdoor dog & I have used approx. 80-100 worms each year for the last 7-8 years with no issues. I have a horrible mole problem but Talparid absolutely works. The tunnels become inactive within 24 hours after an application without fail. Hope this helps.
What time of year can I use talprid?
A shopper on Jan 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Begin use as soon as you see evidence of a trail underneath the ground. I make a hole at either end of the trail.
What is the difference between 7150 and 1052 mole bait by bell and howell?
A shopper on Mar 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Never used anything but talpirid because it works! Drop a worm in a tunnel and the mole stops moving
what is the weight of each worm
Rich on Jun 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, I do not see anywhere that the size of the worms is listed on the box.


Manufacture website, size not listed.
My Talpirid worms have melted what do I need to do? Will they still work?
James on Jun 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The worms will still be good to use. They have a low melting point and will start to melt when temperatures reach 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Once they have melted you can guide the liquid back into the tray and place in a cooler with ice. This will allow the worms to go back into the jello like state they were before.
where can I find the expiration date on the label of the Talpirid box?
bosco on Apr 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Bosco, the manufacture date should be inkjetted on the box somewhere. They do not have an expiration date as pesticides will not expire if kept in a cool dry area.
What is this product made from?
John on Mar 22, 2017
Bromethalin (CAS #63333-35-7) is the active ingredient in Talpirid Mole Bait

BEST ANSWER: Talpirid Mole Bait can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a year,
What threat does this pose to pets if dug up and ingested?
Ashley on Oct 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Talpirid Mole Bait should be placed in live runs, after you inspect them the night before and wait for them to close the hole back up. Worm should be eaten rather quickly and pose not risk to the animal.
Is Talpirid the best product to use for moles?
Jerry on Oct 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Talpirid Mole bait is the newest technology in mole control and is very effective when used according to instructions.
Do moles come back every year? Can I put out Talpirid bait for preventative?
Keith on Oct 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, moles can come back year after year if not taken care of properly by all the neighbors.

Talpirid Mole Bait should be use only when you are seeing them in active runs. We do have a mole repellent, called mole scram.

Was impressed with the Talpirid as it took care of Mr. Mole and didn't take long. Great product.
Product is extremely easy to use and effective. Had several runs in my yard but after putting the bait out, have not seen another run.

Traps Worked First
It may have worked at some point, but I used the talpirid mole bait at same time as mole pro traps and the traps caught the vermin within 12 hours.

Response from Solutions Stores
The worms are really the best on the planet for controlling moles, but it does take time to kill them after ingestion because it is a poison. glad the traps work for immediate removal.

It always works...
I use Talpirid for one simple reason, it works, every time. Trap type mechanisms only work sometimes, and are rarely successful in my experience. Follow the instructions on the Talpirid box and your moles will soon be exterminated. =Ken / Carmel ,Indiana

Great stuff
Talpirid is the best mole killer I have used in the many years I have been pestered by the little critters. Easy and painless to use and very effective.
July 5, 2017
Works great if used properly
Several keys to getting good results: gloves must be worn to prevent your scent off the bait, or mole will not eat the bait. Secondly, only active tunnels should be treated, so go out and stomp down old tunnels and immediately treat new tunnels as they are seen. Also, use proper technique for placing worms with a stick to find tunnel, gloves on at all times, and push bait down into tunnel with stick, then lightly close the hole.
Tried everything, this is the only thing that works, but you still have to treat as new moles find your yard.
