Do not place in areas accessible to children and pets. Only apply the bait underground. Collect and bury all dead animals found above the ground. Do not apply this product by use of a mechanical burrow builder. Specific directions for moles: (Scalopus Aquaticus): The presence of moles may be indicated by a network of surface ridges in the turf, by a series of conical mounds of earth pushed up from deep burrows or by damage to bulbs. Surface Ridges: Prior to treatment, determine which burrows are active according to one of the following two methods. Either press down a small section of the tunnel or remove a one inch section of the tunnel's roof. Mark these sections and recheck in 24 hours, The burrow is considered active if the flattened runway has been raised up or if the roof has been repaired. Only treat active burrows. Carefully punch a hole in the top of active tunnels with pointed end of can, drop a teaspoonful and carefully close the hole with sod or stone. Do not collapse the runway again or allow loose soil to cover the bait. After a few days check to see if the burrows are still active according to one of the two methods described above. If so, repeat treatment. Conical mounds: Remove center plug from the conical mounds with the aid of a long-handled spoon and drop a teaspoonful amount of Sweeney's Poison Peanuts into the underground tunnel. Close opening with rock or sod. Do not allow loose dirt to cover bait. Specific directions for pocket gophers: Burrowing pocket gophers (Thomomys spp. and Geomys spp.) throw out low fan shaped mounds on either side of their underground tunnel. These lateral tunnels coming to the surface are on the flat side of the fan and are plugged with soil. With a long -handled spoon carefully remove the plug. Insert a teaspoonful amount as far down as possible. Reclose opening being careful not to cover bait with soil.
