How much do you put in each hole?

Asked by: Judy F
You should insert 1 teaspoon of bait into active gopher runways. That is enough to kill at least 1 Gopher.

How long is pellet active after inserting in tunnel?

Asked by: dragnlady
The pellets should be active underground for several days. Motomco Gopher Killer should eliminate gophers that consume the bait within a few days of placement but factors such as high gopher populations, new gophers entering the treated area, or even weather may create a need for repeated applications. If, after three to four days of the initial application, gopher activity is still seen in the same area, a second (and possibly a third) application may be necessary. Additionally, heavy rain or very wet soil can cause the bait to degrade in effectiveness. As above, if gopher activity is still observed after a heavy rainfall, a reapplication may be needed.

Doesn't this chemical activate with water? And turn to deadly gas?

Asked by: EZ Gopher Killer
Yes, it can. When zinc phopshide pellets come in contact with moisture, they release phosphine gas, which is the mode of action that makes the effective in killing pocket gophers. For this reason, the product label specifically requires that the product only be used in manual, below ground applications in underground burrows outdoors. As with any pest control bait, the buyer has the responsibility to use the product according to label directions, which are regulated by federal law.

Is there a risk of secondary poisoning?

Asked by: TCooley
Very little testing has been done to determine potential harm from other animals consuming a rodent that has died from eating a rodenticide. However, in the case of the Gopher Killer product, the active ingredient Zinc Phosphide does not build up in the tissue of Pocket Gophers, so the risk of secondary poisoning is very low. We are not aware of any reported incident of adverse affects or reactions in non-target animals such as pets from eating an animal that died from consuming a bait made with zinc phosphide.
