Talpirid BAIT

This is the popular Talpirid Mole Bait.  We also sell the Talpirid Mole TRAP.

Talpirid mole bait is one of the most effective mole control products available today. It is the first and only mole bait designed, developed and scientifically proven to kill moles. One Talprid mole bait 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).

It is HIGHLY recommended that you use disposable gloves to handle and place the Talpirid worms so you do not contaminate them with your scent or other contaminants on gloves that you may already have. 




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.

APPLICATION DIRECTIONS

SUBSURFACE 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.

  1. 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.
  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 that the package instructions/brochure indicate?
  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.

    5 of 5 stars  Talprid mole bait
    By Ken in Alamo California on 06/05/2017

    This product, while, not inexpensive, appears to be quite effective in elimination of mole activity in grass and adjacent unplanted areas. Bait at least every 5-10 feet within and along the raised mole runs. Use rebar or a dowel to punch through the surface into the mole run. I always wear gloves to avoid the contaminating the bait with human scent.

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 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.

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.

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.

QWhat would you recommend for mole control application in front yard grass?
I was thinking of using Lesco Bandit insecticide .5% active.

A

We do not sell Lesco brand products, however insecticides aren't useful unless you are treating for grubs or another Mole food source. We would recommend to use Talpirid Bait to use directly into active Mole tunnels. Read our Mole Treatment Guide for further information.

QCan you cut the Talpirid Bait worms?

A

The 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.

QWhat methods and/tools do I need to effectively use Tapilrid?
I had a professional treat my yard for moles using Tapilrid. He used a rod to puncture the tunnel and then to insert the worms. Is there a special shape to the end of the rod?

ATalpirid Mole Bait is one of our best sellers for mole control in your lawn. It is a worm shaped mole bait that mimics the mole's natural food. To achieve maximum effect, Talpirid Mole Bait should only be placed in areas used habitually by moles for feeding.  There is no specific shape of rod end if needed to puncture. Try to leave the area undisturbed as possible. 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. 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.
