Stop lawn damage fast with the #1 selling mole and gopher bait. Sweeney's® Poison-Peanuts act as bait to attract moles and gophers. When ingested, the poison peanuts quickly kill the moles and gophers. The cleverly designed canister features a cone tip that allows users to punch holes in active tunnel surfaces for easy application of the pellets.
Application Tips to Help Win the War on Moles
Prior to treatment, determine which burrows are active by either pressing down a small section of the tunnel or removing a one inch section of the tunnel’s roof. Mark these sections and re-check in 24 to 48 hours. The burrow is considered active if the flattened runway has been raised up or if the roof has been repaired. Only treat active burrows.
After identifying active burrows, carefully punch a hole in the top of active tunnels with pointed end of cone, drop in a teaspoonful of the pellets, and carefully close the hole with sod or stone. Do not collapse the runway again or allow loose soil to cover the bait. After a few days, check the burrows to see if they are still active. If so, repeat treatment.

I put about 5 pellets in each hole and cover it lightly so birds don’t get at the poison. I have used these for years when I have a mole problem.Date published: 2013-09-26Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Amazon Review I've been using this product in tandem with Sweeney's Mole and Gopher Solar Spike S9014, and between them I've been seeing very little indication that chipmunks remain. When they reopen a hole, I pour in some pellets, and repeat as long as they disappear. When they remain, I figure there's nobody home to eat them.Date published: 2013-07-29Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Amazon Review I have read the reviews that state that moles will not eat a grain based food. However, after having a mole run in my yard for about a year, he seems to be gone/dead after using this product. The run is no longer visible and I have not seen any new ones! I had previously tried traps (sprung many times, but no dead mole), due to heavy clay soil.I rate the product 4 stars because I am not sure that this product is what solved my problem, but then again I couldn't guess what else would have, since I wasn't using anything else at the same time.It is cheap, I think it works, so why not try it.Date published: 2013-05-12Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Amazon Review, Great experience Haven't discovered the results yet but every thing else is great. Purchasing, receiving and condition were all above my expectations. I will reuse this company in the future as they have what I need.Date published: 2013-04-29Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Amazon Review Have mixed feelings about using poison, but moles tend to do us in. Try to be careful and put in run and cover so no other animal is tempted. Believe no problem there. Have the current theory that the first time I see a new mole run, if I put some bait in the new run right then, tends to help. In research and talking with others, seems that no matter what done, one mole will be followed by another, so endless struggle. Have the current impression that doctoring a new run is the best result. Feel we all need to remember it is poison and be careful in use. Tried traps and everything else I could find before returning to this product.Date published: 2013-02-22Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Amazon Review, Well, simply it worked What more can I say, dumped this into his hole, aint seen him since. Ground hog, Delaware, gone. Easy to use and inexpensive.I cant say it will work for everyone, but its cheap enough to give it a try.

Hello, A rodent ate the instructions off the Sweeney's Poison Peanuts cone and chewed a hole in the cone next to the cap. The cone is still 2/3 full. Is the poison still active? And what are the instructions for applying the peanuts?This product has a 3 year shelf life. After identifying active burrows, carefully punch a hole in the top of active tunnels with pointed end of cone, drop in a teaspoonful of the pellets, and carefully close the hole with sod or stone.
