Product: ZP AG Pellets & Short Pellets

  • USE RESTRICTIONS: For control of meadow voles, long-tailed voles, California voles, Oregon voles, mountain voles, Townsend’s voles (Microtus spp.) and Richardson’s ground squirrels (Spermophilus richardsonii) in growing-season and preplant applications in wheat. Do not apply this product to wheat within 50 days of harvest. This use is restricted to Montana, Idaho, Oregon and the state of Washington.  Do not graze animals in treated areas.

  • PREBAITING (Mandatory):   Prebait with a 50/50 mixture of ground corn and wheat to enhance bait acceptance by Richardson’s ground squirrels.  Apply the prebait mixture at 6 lbs per acre 2-3 days prior to using ZP AG Pellets.

  • BROADCAST BAITING: This product may be broadcast by air or ground-driven dispensing devices.  Apply bait at a rate of up to 6 lbs. per acre (0.12 lb. ai/A) per acre.  Make only one application per year if Richardson’s ground squirrels are being targeted.  If voles are being targeted, a second application may be made within 25 days.  The maximum application rate per year is 12 lbs. per acre (0.24 lb. ai/A) per acre.

Product: ZP AG Oats & Squirrel Oats

  • USE RESTRICTIONS: For control of meadow voles, long-tailed voles, California voles, Oregon voles, mountain voles, Townsend’s voles (Microtus spp.) and Richardson’s ground squirrels (Spermophilus richardsonii) in growing-season and preplant applications in wheat. Do not apply this product to wheat within 50 days of harvest. This use is restricted to Montana, Idaho, Oregon and the state of Washington.

  • PREBAITING:  When bait is used to control Richardson’s ground squirrels, prebaiting with untreated steam crimped oats at a rate of 6 lbs. per acre 2-3 days before ZP AG Oats is applied is likely to enhance acceptance of the toxic bait.

  • BROADCAST BAITING: This product may be broadcast by air or ground-driven dispensing devices.  Apply bait at a rate of up to 6 lbs. (0.12 lb. active ingredient) per acre.  Make only one application per year if Richardson’s ground squirrels are being targeted.  If voles are being targeted, a second application may be made within 25 days.  The maximum application rate per year is 12 lbs. (0.24 lb. active ingredient) per acre.
