      • HAND BAITING: For voles, place teaspoonful quantities (4 grams) of bait, either on surface trails or at the mouth of holes leading to underground burrow systems.  Cover bait artificially (e.g., mats, boards) or by pulling overhanging grass over bait.  Allow bait to fall through to the ground surface but do not apply bait to bare ground.  Do not place bait in heaps or piles.

      • BAIT STATIONS: Place bait in tamper-resistance bait stations if children, pets, or nontarget mammals or birds may access the bait.
  • POCKET GOPHERS
    • Product: ZP AG Pellets & Short Pellets
      • USE RESTRICTIONS: For control of plains pocket gophers (Geomys bursarius), southeastern pocket gophers (G. pinetis), yellow-faced pocket gophers (Pappogeomys castanops) and pocket gophers (Thomomys spp.) in non-residential lawns, ornamentals, golf courses, and parks. Bait must be applied directly into pocket gopher's underground burrow systems or into underground tunnels created by burrow-builder machines. Do not apply bait above ground.

      • HAND BAITING: Follow the directions indicated below to locate and treat pocket gophers’ burrow systems.
        Locating Underground Runways: Use a specially designed gopher probe, a metal rod, a strong smooth stick, or other suitable implement to probe the ground 10 to 15 inches away from fan-shaped gopher mounds. Begin probing on the flat side of the fan. When the main runway has been entered, the probe will drop about 2 inches due to decreased resistance from soil.
        Applying Bait to Runways: Using a long-handled spoon or mechanical probe, drop one teaspoon (4 grams) of bait into the main runway at each baited point. Cover the opening with sod, a rock, or soil to exclude light. Take care not to cover bait with soil. Depending upon mound density, make two to five bait placements per burrow system. Recover and bury all spilled bait. Applied in this manner, one pound of bait will treat one to eight acres, depending upon the number of pocket gopher burrow systems present.

      • BURROW BUILDER: Follow manufacturer’s instructions for the type of equipment used. Calibrate equipment to drop a teaspoon quantity (4 grams) of bait at 4-5 foot intervals in the artificial burrow made by the machine. Apply at a rate of 2-3 lbs. of bait per acre (0.04 – 06 lb ai/A). Pick up and disposal of all spilled bait according to “Pesticide Disposal” instructions.

  • Product: ZP AG Oats & Squirrel Oats
    • USE RESTRICTIONS: For control of meadow voles, prairie voles, pine voles, California voles, long-tailed voles, Oregon voles, mountain voles and Townsend's voles (Microtus spp.), Columbian ground squirrels (Spermophilus columbianus), Richardson's ground squirrels (S. richardsonii), thirteen-lined ground squirrels (S. tridecemlineatus), and California ground squirrels (S. beecheyi) in lawns, ornamentals, golf courses, parks, and nurseries.  Bait must not be applied on roads, over water or where plants are grown for food or feed.

    • PREBAITING:  Prebait by placing one teaspoon (4 grams) of untreated steamed crimped oats around each active burrow opening or in each active runway 2 or 3 days prior to using ZP AG Oats to enhance acceptance by ground squirrels or voles.

    • HAND BAITING: Place 4 grams (one teaspoon) of bait around each active burrow opening or in each active runway.  Allow bait to fall through to the ground surface but do not apply bait to bare ground.  Do not place bait in heaps or piles.

    • PREBAITING: Prebaiting with 6 lbs. of untreated steamed crimped oats per acre one or two days prior to using ZP AG Oats is likely to enhance bait acceptance by California ground squirrels.

    • BAITING: Treat only once during treatment period.  Broadcast bait in a 10-15 foot swath along right-of-way, using hand or ground-driven dispensing devices not to exceed 6 lbs. per acre.  Bait may be applied only to the canal right-of-way between the base of the levee and adjacent properties.  The canal and levee may not be treated.  Dispose of excess bait from application equipment by burial.

Around Agricultural and Industrial Structures

  • Product: ZP AG Oats & Squirrel Oats
    • USE RESTRICTIONS:  This product may be used to control meadow voles (Microtus pennsylvanicus), prairie voles (M. ochrogaster), California voles (M. californicus), mountain voles (M. montanus), and pine voles (M. pinetis) around (within 15 feet of) agricultural, commercial and industrial buildings.  Do not apply bait inside of structures.

      Bait must be placed in tamper-resistant bait stations.  These stations must be resistant to destruction by dogs and by children under 6 years of age and must be used in a manner that prevents such children from reaching into bait compartments and obtaining bait.  If bait can be shaken from stations when they are lifted, units must be secured or otherwise immobilized.  Even stronger bait stations are needed in areas open to hoofed livestock, raccoons, bears or other potentially destructive animals, or in areas prone to vandalism.

    • SELECTION OF TREATMENT AREAS:  Determine where voles will most likely find and consume the bait.  Look for runways near buildings as well as signs of vole activity oriented toward the structures.

    • PREBAITING:  Prebaiting with untreated steamed crimped oats may improve acceptance of this product and encourage voles to enter bait stations.  Apply a teaspoon amount (4 grams) of prebait to each bait station at least 2 days before the scheduled application of ZP AG Oats.  Check bait stations for evidence of prebait consumption.  Delay use of treated bait until more than half of the prebait offered has been consumed.  Remove remaining prebait from bait stations before loading them with toxic bait.

    • BAITING:  Apply a teaspoon (4 grams) of bait in each bait station.  Space bait stations at intervals of 8-12 feet in infested areas.  Maintain bait in stations for 3 days.  Extend the baiting period only if there is continued evidence of feeding from the stations by voles.

Airports

  • Product: ZP AG Oats & Squirrel Oats
    • USE RESTRICTIONS:  This product may be used at airports to control meadow voles (Microtus pennsylvanicus), prairie voles (M. ochrogaster), California voles (M. californicus), mountain voles (M. montanus), pine voles (M. pinetis), and white-footed mice (Peromyscus leucopus).  Do not apply bait to bare ground.  Do not apply bait by air.

    • PREBAITING:  Prebaiting with untreated steamed crimped oats may improve acceptance of  this product.  Apply prebait at the same rate and using the same procedures that are to be used for applying the toxic bait.  Apply prebait 2 or 3 days before the scheduled application of ZP AG Oats.

    • HAND BAITING: Place a teaspoon (4 grams) of bait in surface runways or at the mouths of holes leading to underground burrow systems. 

    • GROUND-BROADCAST BAITING: Broadcast bait evenly by hand, by cyclone seeder, or by mechanical spreader mounted on a tractor or 4-wheel drive all-terrain vehicle (ATV). Wear rubber gloves during hand-broadcast operations.  Apply treated bait at rates from 6 to 10 lbs. per acre.  Do not broadcast bait on any area at an airport more than once per year.
