Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tonesmith Works Great, No Messy Traps
This product works quite well at applying bait around the mounds. Although the instructions say not to, I also apply bait in the opening of the mound, as far as possible, not just in various locations around the hole.
To apply in the tunnel around the hole, I start at one point 1-2 feet away from the hole/mound. Next I rotate in a clockwise (or counterclockwise does not matter) until I pierce the ground and the pointed end enters the ground with little resistance. Its easy to tell when you find the tunnel, the baiter just falls down into the tunnel. Once you find it put a couple drops of bait (by turning the lever on top) and your little gopher friends will now pass underground out of sight, no messy body to dispose of or traps to clean.
The products works very well and my neighbors even borrow it when they have an outbreak.
Only con is if your soil is really moist/wet, the baiter end can sometimes clog up, butnit is easy to clean.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tetech Weak handle!
My handle broke quickly. Apply force to center pole rather than handle. The whole time that you leave the switch open lets bait flow continuously unmeasured; so just do 2 quick operations while in tunnel void then secure under latch to close. Put a leaf then sand over the hole; they avoid lighted tunnel areas.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ja89 Does not work.
There is a hole near the bottom of the pole from which poison pellets are supposed to come out. However, this hole gets filled with ground soil when you insert it into the ground right away and then you can no longer turn the handle and nothing comes out of the hole. It is useless and I am returning it to the store. Very disappointed.

Don't waste your time with traps and gas. Use this applicator with good poison and be done with them FAST. I tried the others and spent a fortune.
