Talpirid Mole Bait

Talpirid Mole Bait has repeatedly proven effective in killing moles quickly and long term. Talpirid Mole Bait is our number one seller for mole control and is not matched as a mole bait.

Researchers put Talpirid's bait performance to the test throughout the United States, examining its effectiveness on various moles species, different soil types and baiting conditions and it has been top rated.

Why Talpirid Mole Bait Is Top Rated - It Mimics Earthworms

Talpirid Mole Bait is a mole bait designed, developed, and scientifically proven to kill moles. After much research and development, Bell Labs has manufactured Talpirid Mole Bait to closely resemble the earthworm (the mole's preferred food source). Talpird Mole Bait is also the only mole bait on the market that has submitted tests to the EPA with laboratory efficacy tests on moles.

Ready to use Talpirid Mole Bait has a unique size, shape, and feel that mimic a mole's natural food source, the earthworm, and its active ingredient capitalizes on a mole's physiology. In field and laboratory tests, Talpirid Mole Bait has achieved outstanding acceptance and control.

  • One Talpirid worm contains a lethal dose and can kill in 24 hours.
  • One box of Talpirid contains 20 worms, enough for two typical treatments (sufficient bait to kill several moles).
  • Application Guideline

Additional Information

Pro Tips Talpirid Mole Bait is a great mole killer if you put it in the right place (where the moles are traveling).

Another alternative is to repel them. Check out Molemax. When using Molemax, we recommend using gloves. Not using gloves may contaminate the bait with a human scent.

Moles only

This revolutionary mole bait mimics the mole's natural food,the earthworm. Plus it contains special enhancers that attract moles.

It is not designed for gophers or voles

Active Ingredient (s) Bromethalin 0.025%
For Use :

Outdoors and underground.

Make a hole in the top of the runway with a rod lightly larger than the diameter of the bait. Drop one worm into the runway, using the rod to push any exposed bait completely into the runway. Carefully reseal the runway with a small amount of dirt to exclude light.

Repeat bait application every 5 to 10 feet of each active subsurface runway.

Application:

Bait Active Runways

Make a hole in the top of the runway with a rod lightly larger than the diameter of the bait. Drop one worm into the runway, using the rod to push any exposed bait completely into the runway. Carefully reseal the runway with a small amount of dirt to exclude light. Repeat bait application every 5 to 10 feet of each active subsurface runway.

Selection of Treatment Areas

Establish Initial Activity:

Use your finger, small wooden dowel, or a narrow rod to puncture a hole in the top of subsurface runways. Be careful not to crush runways. Mark opened runways and revisit them 48 to 72 hours later. Runways that have had holes resealed within 72 hours should be baited.

The presence of moles may be indicated by a network of subsurface runways in the turf or by a series of conical mounds of earth pushed up from deep burrows. Subsurface runways are indicated by raised ridges of vegetation and soil caused by moles foraging for food just below the soil surface. These runways are especially noticeable when the grass above them turns yellow. Conical mounds may be indicative of the location of deeper main underground runways.

Conical Mounds:

Moles construct deeper tunnels that are not visible from the surface. These deep tunnels systems are often marked by a series of conical mounds (piles of dirt) 4 to 12 inches high formed when dirt is pushed to the surface when moles construct these tunnels. To locate deep tunnels, push a probe, such as a broom handle, into the soil between mounds. When the probe enters a tunnel, the resistance on the probe will decrease rapidly. Mark opened tunnels and revisit them 48 to 72 hours later. Runways that have had holes resealed within 72 hours should be baited.

Deep Tunnels

To bait deep tunnels, drop one Talpirid worm through the probe hole, using the probe to push the bait completely into the tunnel. Cover the hole with a piece of sod, a small rock or a piece of newspaper to allow for visual inspection. Repeat bait application every 5 to 10 feet of each active deep tunnel and within 5 feet of each active conical mound. Check for the effects of treatment 5 to 7 days after bait application using the same procedure for determining tunnel location. Return 48 to 72 hours later and retreat all active tunnel systems

Yield 1 Talpirid box (20 worms) is enough for two typical treatments Bait in unopened sealed box will last up to 1 year in controlled environment. Once opened, use within 15 days.
Mixture|Application Make a hole in the top of the runway with a rod lightly larger than the diameter of the bait. Drop one worm into the runway, using the rod to push any exposed bait completely into the runway.

More Instructions

DETERMINING BAITING RESULTS:

Five (5) to 7 days after bait application, check for mole activity using the same procedure for determining initial activity. Return 48 to 72 hours later and retreat all active runs.

If Talpirid doesn't seem to work, consider:

1. Are you using gloves when applying the bait?
Not using gloves may contaminate the bait with a human scent.

2. Are you applying product before or after a heavy rain?
Rain and humidity can break down the bait faster than normal conditions.

3. Is a chemical insecticide or fertilizer being applied to the lawn?
Chemicals that are applied before or after (within a few days) of applying Talpirid can affect the bait by contamination. Hence, the chemical gets on the bait by seeping through the tunnels.

4. Are you following the three-step process on the package?

5. Are you baiting properly once you find the main active run?
If you bait without ever doing a test to find the active tunnel(s), than the bait may never be encountered and eaten by moles. You can test for an active tunnel by following the steps outlined on the package instructions.

Great product
This is a very effective product BUT in order to truly get rid of a mole problem, you have to get rid of the food source in your yard ... grubs and earthworms. I used a product on the lawn ALONG WITH talpirid and was able to successfully solve the problem, but talpirid alone didn't do it.

Works great!
Tallprid & doyourownpestcontrol.com were recommended by a pest control technician. I've been using this product for several years, now. Nothing prevents these critters from coming to your yard, but when they arrive, Talprid will kill them, and it's easy to use.

Armed to kill the monster moles
The moles in our yard this year were terrible. I had tried another product and the moles just laughed at me and continued their mission of destroying my gardens and yard! I thought the moles would meet their demise during the cold winter. Upon researching, I found this is when the moles dig deeper and propagate. Thinking how many I would have come next sprng, I decided I needed to get serious about ridding my gardens and yard of moles. Along with the article telling the habits of the moles, there was an ad for Talprid. I sent in an order, and when they arrived a friend helped me place a tray of the worms in trails. Some of the worms we divided in half to further our mission. In less than 24 hours, we knew the worms were working...thanks to Talprid Mole Control worms!

I have been using the worms all summer. I have probably gone through (inserted into the tunnles) 6 packs or 60 worms and have not been able to stop the moles yet. Not sure what else to do.

Great Product
I have been using Talpirid for eight years and depend on the quality to kill off those pesky moles. I live in a heavily wooded area. The moles come out of the forest and dig in my yard. Usually the worst attacks come after a rain and the ground is soft in the spring or fall. After I don't find any active runs I use my garden hose to destroy the former tunnels. The product is the fastest acting of all the other products I have tried.

Mole abatement
Last year was the last straw, as my beautifully manicured yard , which attracted many earthworms, became a motocross track for many families of moles and their close neighbors, the voles.

Had tried everything from smoking, flooding, salting, poisoning, chewing gumming, rock salting, tabasco-ing, trapping, them out. Hired a few dogs and cats, with a mere modicum of success.
Still the yard suffered as did the flower gardens.

The rat traps /peanut butter/covered with flower pots, set next to the holes worked for a brief spell, but the track kept expanding.

Lamenting my malaise to an owner of a landscape company, she recommended the Talpirid Mole Bait. After placing in the active surrounds, realized AMAZING (immediate) results. The motocross track is closed. Thanks for a great product.

Seems to be working
I live South of Ft. Smith, Ar., and we have plenty of moles here. I have tried traps of different kinds with not much luck. I tried the Talpirid Mole Bait which is fast and easy to apply. I have not seen any new hills, and after a few days, I flattened out the hills where I put the bait and they are not re-using them. So far, this looks like the answer to my mole problem.

Seems to be the best choice...
Last summer I used a few boxes of the The Giant Destroyer super gassers. These worked better than anything I had been using over the past years...everything seemed to work for awhile but the moles always come back...and the Super Gassers held them off better than the rest...Then Fall comes. I switch to Talpirid Mole Bait - Worms. Much easier. Just drop half a worm in a couple of main holes of each burrow and that's it. I'm on my third 20-pack and now when they come back they go away real quick. I call that a good sign. Right now, I'm putting my money on Talpirid Mole Worm Baits. They are easier to use and they seem to be doing a better job than anything else I have tried.

good product
I used to use traps, but my sprinkling system guy, who works for a neighboring city and golf course installing systems, said they use Talpirid and got me to use this product. I also cut the worms in half, as others do, and that seems to be sufficient. I have had pretty good luck and have no activity for a while after baiting ....though it is a never ending battle, as new moles move into the same tunnels...and the cycle starts all over again.
The price on this site is much better than in local stores and the service/shipment was excellent and fast. So I am ordering again....

Second time buyer because of good results
I purchased this product two years ago and used it at my home in southern Ohio and also in Michigan and had very good results. Late this past fall the moles returned at my Ohio home and went wild just before the deep freeze. So I stocked in January to prepare for the first thaw to go on the attack!

Still struggling with moles
In the past two years I have used five packages of Talprid, 100 worms, as directed, and I still have moles throughout most of my lawn. I tamp down the grass, wait until I see it lifted again, insert a worm, the next day or two the grass is lifted again. There is a golf course bordering my property that sprays for moles and they seem to keep coming from there. Nothing seems to work here in Hilton Head, SC where it seldom freezes moles into hibernation.

***************
DIY Response: Sorry to hear you're having problems eliminating the moles. I suspect the neighboring golf course is furnishing you with a steady stream of new moles. You may have a tougher time eliminating them than the average home owner because of the surrounding environment. You are probably killing some moles, but others are quickly replacing them. In addition, the sandy soils found in the coastal Carolinas can cause the mole tunnels to collapse after baiting them. Tunnel collapse will cover the bait with sand and makes the bait less attractive to the moles. You may want to supplement the Talpirid Bait with some mole traps ( http://store.doyourownpestcontrol.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=mole+traps ) which are quite effective in sandy and loamy soils.

Great product
This product arrived before the estimated arrival date. We have been using it in our yard and it appears to be working. We cut the worms in half and place them in the mole tunnels. They are easy to use and hopefully in time will take care of our problem, along with the Bonide MoleMax mole repellent.

This stuff (Talpirid) Works
This was my second year of battling moles (they won last year). And, all sorts of other critters showed up. IT WAS AWFUL. Lived here 23 years... 1st time ever squirrels showed up too and ripped my chimney flashing off, tore up soffit, etc., etc. $867 work of repairs. (got in my house- awful!!) This year, thanks to Talpirid the moles are dead and no other critters. Only my beautiful red cardinals, blue jays, etc. flying about. I wrote Bell Laboratories an email thanking them and asking them to PLEASE never take this off the market. Their reply: "Thank you for your email and comments on Talpirid. The plan is to market this item for a long time to come." P.S. I cut 'em in half like another person said. Put them in the top level tunnels and even found the subterranean tunnels (amazing!).

It really works!
After paying for a pest control company to handle my problem, I saw that they give up on traps and finally used bait. Now, when I have a problem, I use Talpirid, spending a few extra dollars for an overkill dosage and the problem goes away. With a large lot adjacent to the woods, I find that the Talpirid helps me keep my sanity.

Review by KS / (Posted on 10/15/2012)
Worth the price!
I have a super mole. The kind that can dig through heavy clay nightly, leave huge mounds, and kill every last stem of grass over the runs. My lawn looks like an impact zone after trying pellet bait, castor oil, smoke bombs, flooding, sonic spikes, letting my dog dig, and anything else anyone recommended.
I dropped the bait last night, just before dusk. I only used three "worms" and as of this morning, there is NO activity. I wish I had known about this product in the beginning as I would have saved about $100 in treatments that seemed to attract the mole rather than repel it.
I highly recommend this product! Just drop it on the other side of the fence and check your yard daily for dead moles if you have pets.
The only down side is that I'll never eat another gummy worm in my life but it's a small price to pay for a beautiful lawn.
