HOW TO USE THE GIANT DESTROYER:
1. Find main runway and clear one opening for easy cartridge insertion. Make sure all other openings are sealed.
2. Insert fuse firmly into cartridge and making sure to leave two inches of fuse exposed.
3. Light fuse and insert cartridge into runway opening. Minimum fuse burning time: 5 seconds.
4. When cartridge begins to smoke, cover opening completely with dirt.
5. USE ONLY INSIDE BURROW, NEVER INSIDE OF BUILDING
Locate the main runway, look for fresh conical mounds of dirt. Select the freshest of these, remove plug and dig in direction of main runway. If lateral to the mound is plugged, either dig past the plug or probe ground around the plug to locate main runway. Main runway will be found when probe meets little or no resistance. When runway is found, prepare an opening into runway large enough so that cartridge can be inserted easily. Collect sufficient dirt and other material for closing hole. Light fuse and insert cartridge into hole fuse-end -first. Cover cartridge quickly, but take care not to smother it with dirt. Quickly close any holes where gas escapes. If your excavations have divided main runway into sections, treat each portion.
Locate fan-shaped mounds with signs of recent gopher activity. Find the horseshoe-shaped depression on one side of the mound. To locate the main runway, probe ground 15-18 inches from mound on the same side as the depression. The main runway has been located when ground friction on the probe has been released. Dig down to main runway, taking care not to block it off with dirt. Create an opening large enough for easy insertion of the cartridge. Collect enough dirt and other material to close opening. Light fuse and insert fuse-end-first. Immediately cover opening, taking care not to smother cartridge with loose dirt. Cover any openings where gasses escape. Treat all active mounds.
Locate all burrow entrances. Select one for use and close all other entrances with rock and dirt. Light fuse and insert cartridge fuse-end-first. Cover with rock and dirt, being careful not to smother cartridge with dirt. Consult state game laws before using this product for woodchuck control.
Use only where burrows are isolated from homes,barns, and all other man-made stuctures. DO NOT USE inside buildings or anywhere where gasses could enter buildings. Collect plenty of dirt and other materials for closing burrow openings. Treat each burrow opening by lighting fuse and inserting cartridge fuse-end-first into the hole.(make sure hole is large enough for easy insertion before lighting fuse.) Cover hole immediately,taking care not to smother cartridge with loose dirt. Immediately cover all other openings from which gas escapes. Proceed to next closest burrow and treat as above.

Locate all entrances to den. Do not treat dens under inhabited structures or buildings where toxic gasses could reach humans, pets,or domestic animals including livestock. Openings to den should be large enough to permit easy insertion of cartridge. Close any openings to den other than the one to be treated. Collect material for closing treated opening. Dirt, sod,and a large rock may serve this purpose. Light fuse and insert cartridge fuse-end-first. Close opening, being careful not to cover cartridge with dirt. Close any previously undetected openings where gas escapes.
