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.
Will this product kill gophers?
Keith E on Apr 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, this product is targeting moles and has attractants for moles. If the gopher feeds on it it would die but they would not be attracted to the worms
What time of year can I use talprid?
A shopper on Jan 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Any time of year. Best to use it as soon as you see activity. This is the only thing that has ever worked for me. Don't bother with the stuff you see in stores.
Does this work on voles too?
A shopper on Jul 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have had moles, voles & shrews. This is the only thing that has ever worked on any of them. I tried the stuff from Home Depot and it doesn't work. Neither did the poison smoke bomb. I also tried 2 different kind of traps. This is the only thing that worked.
I found out about this stuff through a professional pest controller. They charge $125 just to stick these worms in the active tunnels.
What is the difference between 7150 and 1052 mole bait by bell and howell?
A shopper on Mar 11, 2018

what is the weight of each worm
Rich on Jun 4, 2017

Is this safe for pets?
Irene D on Sep 1, 2018

Where can I buy in the Davenport Iowa area?
A shopper on Apr 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We would not have a location in that state but we do offer free shipping for the order.
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
BEST ANSWER: ACTIVE INGREDIENT:
Bromethalin (CAS #63333-35-7) is the active ingredient in Talpirid Mole Bait

Robert on Nov 3, 2016
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

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

This stuff works.
A pest control guy recommended this product to rid my yard of moles. My search showed Solutions Pest & Lawn had the best price and good ratings, so I ordered a pack of 20 worms. Shipping was fast with good followup by the seller and they provided excellent details as to how to use this product. Follow the instructions and be patient. The moles will find the bait. I placed five worms and have dispatched two different moles so far. Yes, it is pricey, but it does work and Solutions is a good seller.

Wonderful product
Works great. I had a yard full of mole runs last year. Destroyed most of my lawn. My bug man recommended Talpirid. This spring as soon as I saw Even one feeding run, I planted worms. I would check every day in their favorite spots. Success. I have seen no new damage in over a month.

Asheville NC
We were invaded by moles last fall. Our new lawn service used Talpirid starting this spring, and it appears to be working. We have a wooded lot, so mole invasion continues, but the odds are now in our favor. I bought Talpirid to use in my flower beds. Yes, it melted in shipping, but I easily and very quickly reformed them in my oven at 170 degrees. Remember to use plastic gloves when breaking up the pieces and line your cookie sheet with aluminum foil.

Not sure how long since you put the Talpirid Mole Worms out, but it does take time for mortality.
