Will this product kill black-tailed prairie dogs?
Jennifer on Mar 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No this is not labeled for controlling prairie dogs, and is a restricted use product which requires applicator license,
Black-footed Ferret (Mustela nigripes). Do not use this product within 7 kilometers
(4.34 miles) of any prairie dog town to limit risks to the black-footed ferret from exposure
to Zinc Phosphide or destruction of its prey base, unless the colony is an isolated blacktailed
prairie dog town less than 80 acres in size or an isolated white-tailed prairie dog
town less than 200 acres in size, or unless the town had been appropriately surveyed,
using methods acceptable to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and found by the FWS
not to be suitable site for ferret reintroductions.

An effective bait to complete the job
This is a good go-to bait for small rodents. With proper application there is minimal risk of exposing non-targeted animals. I do wish this were offered in a smaller size, that would make this an even better fit for me.
