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.

will this deter / kill voles?This product is designed to kill moles and gophers only. It is not recommended for voles.Date published: 2016-06-01
How long do I wait for the chemical to break down and is safe for dogs to go out in the yard?When the product becomes wet, it will begin to disintegrate like dog food. The product will decompose 2-3 weeks after it has been applied.Date published: 2016-09-18
how large is this cone and how many moles will it killThe cone is 3 inches wide by 10.2 inches tall and holds 6 ounces. We apologize that we would not be able to give an estimate of how many moles would be killed by the contents of one cone.Date published: 2016-03-01
I used these before reading the directions and we have a dog. How long will they be harmful to animals once they are put into the ground ? Do they dissolve or lose their ability to harm animals ? thanks -The poison peanuts will typically decompose within 2-3 weeks of treatment.Date published: 2015-12-01
Will Poison Peanuts attract and harm other animals, like squirrels?To prevent squirrels from being attracted to this product, we recommend only placing the pellets in mole or gopher tunnels. They should not be placed above the ground.Date published: 2015-11-10
Will Poison pellets work for killing voles. I am not able to locate any active burrows but i see them scurrying around. What do you advise. TimThe Poison Peanuts are only recommended for use against moles and gophers. We would not recommend using them to eliminate voles. This product should be placed below ground in active mole and gopher runs.Date published: 2015-10-23
In the past, I have bought these poison pellets in jars which I then use to fill up my cone. Do you no longer sell this product in bulk form?At this time, our Sweeney’s® Mole & Gopher Poison Peanuts are available only in the 6 oz. cones.Date published: 2015-10-17
how long will the bait last in the ground. I have dogs and did not think about this till after I put the pellots in the tunnels. Pellots are below the ground but now worried the dogs might dig up the tunnels.
- All About
Moles are helpful in that they remove damaging insects and grubs from lawns and gardens. Unfortunately, however, their burrowing habits can destroy grass, gardens and flower beds and tear up tree roots.
Gophers excavate soil from their tunnels, creating large, horseshoe-shaped mounds. Gopher mounds are typically larger than Mole hills with the entrance hole at an angle to the ground surface.
