CONTROL OF VOLES

Limitations, Restrictions, and Exceptions

VOLES

Use Restrictions: This product may be used to control meadow voles (Microtus pennsylvanicus), pine voles (M. pinetus) and montane voles (M. montanus) around (usually within 15 feet of) homes and industrial, commercial, agricultural and public buildings. Do not use this product within the habitat of threatened or endangered Microtus spp. voles, threatened or endangered Peromyscus spp. mice, or other threatened or endangered rodents.

Do not expose bait on bare ground. Unless children, pets, birds and other wildlife are excluded from the treated areas, all applications for controlling voles must be made in tamper-resistant bait stations. All bait applications must be made by hand. Wear gloves when handling bait or animal carcasses. Do not broadcast bait.

SELECTION OF TREATMENT AREAS: Determine areas near buildings where voles or signs of vole activity (girdling of plants, consumption of bulbs, burrow openings and surface runways) have been seen. These areas generally will be in flower beds or under shrubs, bushes or ground cover.

APPLICATION DIRECTIONS: Open pack and load one ounce of bait into each bait station. Situate bait stations near runways, burrow openings or plants that voles have been damaging. In, and only if, children pets, domestic animals and wildlife reliably are excluded from the treated area, bait may be applied in one-ounce amounts directly into vole runways or burrow openings. Cover treated runways or holes with a shingle or board, or ground vegetation, if present. Check placements daily. Remove any fouled or spoiled bait and replenish if vole activity and interest in bait persist.

Maintain an uninterrupted supply of fresh bait for 15 days or until there no longer are fresh signs of vole activity and feeding on bait. Collect and properly dispose of any carcasses and leftover bait.
