Works Every Time
By Carol in Post Falls, ID on 06/21/2011
This is the only product that has completely rid my flower beds, yard and farm property of voles and gophers. I tried pepper, water and other suggestions but I just kept finding holes. Not with this product! They are gone! I have used this Hi-Yield under another name that is no longer offered. I thought I was out of luck until I found Hi-Yield. It is the same as the product that I've used for about 6 years. Every spring I "doctor" (by just dropping a little scoop into the hole) the new holes, cover them up and never get any more. Safe for pets too!

Gophers Like IT!
By T in Solvang, CA on 06/17/2011
I was hesitant about the successful use of the product because of its only 2% active ingredient content and its stinky, chemical smell. But it is great, so far. I have quit flooding holes and used a funnel to aid insertion into the run. I strongly recommend the product, and will order more next spring as I do not know what the shelf life is.

Strong claims and weak results
By Wallace in Powell, OH on 07/19/2011
Ineffective at best for vole removal. There must be better choices available.

Works on groundhogs of any size
By Bob in Morrisville, PA on 08/08/2011
My garden is thriving again. With groundhogs, you need to put this stuff where they can trip over it. The odor of the product is offensive to me, but they gobble it up. I didn't use the scoop that comes in the bottle. I'm quessing four to six big guys per bottle. This is the first time I've used the product. $3-$4 per pest is a good deal in my book.

Did Great Job of Eliminating Mole Problem
By Frank in Canal Winchester, Ohio on 11/15/2011
I used a non-lethal method to get rid of a minor mole problem several years ago. Unfortunately, this time I had pervasive problem which required me to find another solution. I followed the directions carefully and did some test holes in suspected active tunnels (there were so many of them this time). In as few as 3 hours, the moles had repaired some of the holes. I waited the 24 hours recommended to make sure I had identified all the active tunnels. I carefully created a hole in roof of the active tunnels and placed the Bait in the tunnel. I covered each newly created hole with a small rock. I also placed a small flag marker (like those used by utility companies to mark underground utilities) to make it easier for me to relocate the holes I had dug. After several days, I retested the tunnels by checking to see if any moles remained and repaired any holes I made in the roof of the tunnels and it appears my efforts, and this product, were successful. I do recommend placing flags to mark the test holes. Made it a lot easier to relocate them and inspect them to determine the active tunnels and then later to test to see if the bait had worked properly.

Jury still Out
By Scott in Sudbury, MA on 09/30/2011
I have a terrible vole problem on my lawn. It started several years ago. I first started tackling it with conventional mice traps. It worked with peanut butter catching 30+ voles a year. For whatever reason, the population has flourished. I have tried other poisons but wanted a fast way to get the population down. I set up some feeding stations as recommended on the web using PVC pipe. HOWEVER, they do not appear to be eating these pellets. I will update my review in the spring as I will be setting up more feeding stations for the winter. I am hoping as food supply goes down they will eat the pellets.

Hi-Yield Bait for Voles
By Bps in Yakima, WA on 11/08/2011
I have been plagued with voles for the past couple of years. I got this product, placed it in the high traffic holes as directed and have not seen a single vole or any evidence of their presence since the day after placing the product. Last year in the same areas I caught over 100 voles in traps. I have not seen ONE since beginning to use this product. I use it in areas where my dog has no access and feel safe doing so. Great product.

Hi-Yield Mole and Gopher Bait
By Ray in Bozeman, MT on 10/16/2011
I really don't know if the Hi-Yield bait works on voles yet. There is no evidence that they ate the bait but I will have to wait and see if the bait is killing the little varmints.

QWill mole and gopher pellets fit in a gopher applicator tool?
Can I apply this product through a gopher applicator tool? Are the pellets small enough to fall down a 1/2" pipe?
AThe pellets inside would the Hi-Yield Mole and Gopher Bait are small enough to fit down a 1/2 tube with no problems.
QDoes Hi-Yield Mole and Gopher Bait kill voles?
ZP Rodent Bait, which specifically mentioned voles, was discontinued. This replacement doesn't mention voles. I need something to control the hordes of voles in my backyard and don't want to spend a fortune on an ineffective pesticide. I have no time to lose since the voles become more numerous by the day.
AHi-Yield Mole and Gopher Bait is not labeled for voles (also known as field mice). This of course doesn't mean it wouldn't kill them, it means that this product was not intended for this use. The reason for this is most likely because Hi-Yield Mole and Gopher Bait is intended for use underground or in covered areas only and voles tend to only have very shallow, open burrows or runway paths that are exposed. Voles can be tough to control during times when they are having a population explosion like you have described. You can place baits such as Fastrac Blox or Final Blox in tamper resistant bait stations directly into the voles runways. Traditional wooden mouse snap traps also can do a pretty good job in eliminating these pests. Please take a few minutes to read over the Vole Control article for more hints and tips for successfully controlling the vole population on your property.
QDoes the Hi-Yield Mole and Gopher Bait work for mice?
AAlthough the Hi-Yield Zinc Phosphide will kill a mouse if it eats is, the product is not labeled for mice or rodents and therefore we cannot recommend it is a treatment method. However, we do carry a full line of other rodent baits that are specifically for mice and rats.

QDoes Hi-Yield Mole and Gopher Bait have to be put in each individual hole in the lawn?
AHi-Yield Mole and Gopher Bait should be placed in active burrows or tunnels depending on which animal you are trying to eliminate. Please take a few moments to review the Hi-Yield Mole and Gopher Bait product label for tips on finding the active burrows or tunnels and for application directions.
QCan I use Hi-Yield Mole and Gopher Bait (Zinc Phosphide) on property with a septic tank and well?
AAlthough Hi-Yield Mole and Gopher Bait is unlikely to leach into the soil and move into a well, you should still use caution and avoid using Hi-Yield Mole and Gopher Bait closer than 15 feet to the well.
