TALPIRID, (Talprid) developed by Bell Laboratories, Inc., is the first and only mole bait designed, developed and scientifically proven to kill moles.
Talpirid is Proven Effective Talpirid's active ingredient capitalizes on a mole's physiology. In both field and laboratory tests, Talpirid achieved outstanding acceptance and control. One Talpirid mole bait worm contains a lethal dose and can kill in 24 hours.
Talpirid mole bait mimics a Mole's Natural Food Source
Talpirid's size, shape and feel let moles consume the bait in the same manner as its primary food source, the earthworm. Special enhancers in Talpirid ensure immediate attraction and excellent product acceptance.
Talpirid is Ready-To-Use
TALPIRID mole bait comes in a convenient tray of 10 worms which release freely from the tray, ready for immediate placement. The Talpirid worm trays are individually sealed in a bag for ultimate freshness and maximum shelf life.
SELECTION OF TREATMENT AREAS:
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.
TALPIRID has been specially designed to mimic the natural food sources of the mole. To achieve maximum effect, TALPIRID should only be placed in areas used habitually by moles for feeding.
ESTABLISHING 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.
BAITING 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.
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:
Here are five things to consider.
- Are you using gloves when applying the bait? Disposable rubber or Nitrile gloves are best. Not using gloves may contaminate the bait with a human scent.
- Are you applying product before or after a heavy rain? Rain and humidity can break down the bait faster than normal conditions.
- 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.
- Are you following the three step process that the package instructions/brochure indicate?
- 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.

I have used Talpirid for a while now and it does what other products cannot do. Trapping moles (hit and miss) scaring moles (they will be back) with Talpirid they ARE GONE FOR GOOD!

I purchased Talpirid bait because it was referred to me by a friend. He said, "It is fail-proof". It was simple to use and after "planting" the bait, in just three days...I found the mole, dead, in my window-well. What a relief! It was totally destroying my yard. Thank goodness for Talpirid!

Great way to get rid of moles
By Terry in Maryland on 08/18/2010
My neighbors will tell you that I have tried everything for moles. These baits work better than the traps, home remedies, and even the tomcat works. If you want to get rid of the moles, spend the money and get these worms.

THIS REALLY WORKS
By Djt in St. Louis, MO on 05/06/2010
Do not try smokes bombs, poison peanuts or any other gimmick. The ONLY two things that work are traps and this. A couple of yrs. ago I used an in ground trap and caught one, but my yard is so big, I need more weapons :-) Within 2 days of putting 2 baits in two tunnels, NO MORE TUNNELS. You know what that means? This product worked!

East Texas Moles
By Jay in Longview,TX. on 03/13/2010
Used the product for the first time, and I'm going on one week without activity, weather has changed 2 or 3 times and still no moles. It is the best remedy for any mole problem by far. Tried trapping, gassing, have just placed sonic mole chasers in yard. Will begin Dylox & Merit treatment shortly for the grubs they want for food.

Wow I just love Talpirid Mole Bait! It works as promised! The moles are dead and no more tunnels in my lawn! It took only 3 days to rid them and so far after 2 weeks I still have 15 worms left. The instructions are clear and this was so easy to do. I love it .... do you have anything for turkeys?

QIs Talpirid safe for pets? I have cats which love to catch moles.
ATalpirid, when used directed on the product label, will be applied to areas that will for the most part be inaccessible to non-target animals. In most cases, moles that consume the bait will die under ground in their tunnels eliminating the worry that cats or other predatory animals will eat the carcass. Most well fed pets such as cats do not consume dead animals that they find, instead they tend to "play" with it. An animal the size of a cat would have to consume many dead moles for there to be any concern of secondary poisoning.

QHow many worms per tunnel; or sq ft, etc., is applied? I don't
I have no idea of how many worms to order.
AYou will need to bait every 5 to 10 feet of each active subsurface runway. With Mole bait the amount of tunnels will be what determines how much bait you will require. Most folks need about 10-20 worms per treatment depending on the number of tunnels/moles present. Each box of Talprid comes with 20 worms.

QWhat is the best season to treat for moles using Talpirid?
Now that we are closing on on fall, is it worth the expense to try to rid my yard now or better to wait till spring?
AMoles do not hibernate during the winter and you may find a lot of damage to your yard if you put off eliminating them now while they are still active. We recommend getting rid of moles whenever you see activity on your property.
QWhat is the shelf life of Talpirid Mole Bait?
AThe manufacturer of Talpirid says that it will last over a year on the shelf if the tray has not been opened. Once the tray is opened and the worms are exposed to air, they will not last over about 45 days.
QIs use of bromethalin safe to use for gopher/mole control near or in a vegetable garden
Is it carcinogenic? What is it's half life? Is it taken up into the plant, will it contaminate the soil and food from garden?
ABromethalin is the active ingredient in many rodent control products. Without knowing the specific product you are requesting information on we can only give you general answers. Bromethalin does not move through the soil and is not taken up systemically into plants. Bromethalin products cannot be used in a vegetable garden but instead should be used around the outside perimeter of the garden for mole/gopher control. Talpirid is the only Bromethalin product that we carry that is labeled for mole control and it will only last for about 14 days when used as directed on the product label.

QHow long will Talpirid BAIT stay in the soil.

QIs there an antidote if my dog eats a Talpirid worm?
AThere is not an antidote for the Talpirid Mole Bait.

QHow do I get rid of and keep moles out of my yard?
Just ready to lay 7000 sq ft of new floratam st Augustine sod in Ormond Beach , Fl. Noticed mole tunnels beginning to develop over last few weeks. Need to get rid if them, and then keep them out.
A There are many different ways to treat for moles. Please check out our Mole Control Page. One of the more effective means of mole control is using Talpirid Bait. One Talprid mole bait worm contains a lethal dose and can kill in 24 hours. When you have mold activity in your yard it can in part be due to a plentiful food supply. Moles will feed on grubs, worms and other similar insects living in your turf. Many people in conjunction with using products designed to either trap, kill, or repel moles, will use a product like Dylox to kill the grubs and insects the moles are feeding on. By removing their food source it helps deter them from your yard. For full information on how to eradicate moles from your residence, see our section on Mole Control.

QMoles in the winter? In Connecticut! Bought some Talpirid, will it work?
Piles of dirt scattered in areas! Weird for this time of year?
ATalpirid Bait should not be applied or stored in exreme temperatures. You will want to observe the areas of dirt that appears to be the active tunnel. You then can apply the Talpirid Bait with gloved hands into active areas. Per the manufacturer, '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 wihin 72 hours should be baited.

QHow do I get the Talpirid bait out of the tray?
ATo remove the Talpirid bait from the bait tray you want to wear gloves and simply peel the bait worm up. Then you want to drop the bait in the burrow/tunnel.

QI'm not sure if I have moles or voles. How do I treat?
I have 2 dogs and there is bunnies that live around my yard . I need something that is safe for them to be around . My neighbor has moles,voles . I think they came from his yard .
AThere are different ways you can treat moles vs voles. We recommend to first pin down if indeed this rodent is either a mole or vole. Please see our Vole control page and Mole Control Page once the rodent has been determined we can make an accurate recommendation for you.

QCan you cut the Talpirid worms in half or pieces to get more coverage ?
This is my camp up in the Laural Highlands of Penna. I go here about 0nce per month in the winter it has been a very mild winter and these mole runs are everywhere when I go up . Last fall it started and bent the blade on my mower on mole mound. I need to get rid of these things by spring. Its all woods around the house. Should I get a case of this stuff or what ?
AThe Talpirid Mole Bait is meant to be used whole. We do not recommend cutting the worms into pieces because you may wind up cutting the bait into pieces that are not large enough to deliver a fatal dose of the poison to the moles. As long as the tunnels are active and you are following the Talpirid product label instructions you should have success getting rid of the moles with this product.

QWet conditions in the rain forest with Talpirid Mole Bait?
How effective will it be in very wet conditions? Fall is upon us and we live in Eastern Washington.
ATalpirid BAIT will remain effective, even in rainy conditions for at least 30 days. Also, this product should be placed in the ground in an active run so it should not be exposed to direct moisture from rain.
QHow do I determine how many Talpirid worms I may need?
AThis will depend entirely on how many moles you have on your property. Most customers with a light-medium infestation start with one Talpirid BAIT box, customers with a heavy infestation usually purchase two boxes.
QCan I use Talpirid Bait to get rid of voles?
Today I stood and watched as the 3rd replacement tomato got pulled into the ground. They don't seem to be falling for the mousetraps I have set up. It's a desperate situation.
ATalpirid mole bait is not labeled for the treatment of voles. However, we do sell a product that is very popular for vole control called ZP rodent bait. Many of our customers purchase this product and place it in the runs or down the entry holes.
