Product Overview

Pocket gophers and moles are voracious and feed on any type of vegetation found underground. They destroy food trees by gnawing away the roots, and they also ravage tuber and bulb gardens. Placing poison bait directly in the gophers tunnel with a minimum of disturbance is the most effective method of control. Pocket gophers and moles are active year-round, but the best time for baiting is in late winter and early spring when the soil softens, just before the pocket gophers reproduce and have young.

  • Injects poison underground directly into tunnels
  • Keeps poison away from children and pets
  • Eliminates handling the bait and most messy spills
  • Improved larger barrel accommodates most common baits

Customer Questions & Answers

How do I get it to work

How do I get the rod into the ground without the dirt clogging up the hole from which the poison pellets are supposed to be deposited into the gopher tunnel?
Asked by: Chris
Rotate the handle (top of the bait hopper). This will close the opening. When you locate the tunnel, inset the closed tube until it goes through the top of the tunnel. Turn that same handle one time. that will open the hole you are seeing now and let a dose of poison bait out into the tunnel.then remove the applicator from the ground.

Should the applicator break up the pellets?

The pellets seem to be crushed from falling thru the applicator pole. Are they supposed to gently fall thru the pipe without the applicator crushing them? Or is it ok to have most of the pellets get broken up into tiny bits and pieces? Is the applicator working right?

Gopher Bait Applicator is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from 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 5 out of 5 by from this is what you need to RID your lawn! 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.
