Rozol Pocket Gopher Bait – Burrow Builder Formula

Rozol® Pocket Gopher Bait (PGB) Burrow Builder Formula, when applied through a mechanical burrow builder, provides effective and economical control. Control is via preventative and curative bait applications in and around irrigated alfalfa fields, orchards and groves.

It is labeled for use through tractor-mounted, burrow-builder equipment that creates artificial burrows and places the bait below ground in those artificial tunnels. The label also permits hand baiting.

Rozol PGB Burrow Builder Formula applied as preventative perimeter treatments around crop borders, offers the advantage of intercepting gophers before they reach the interior of the field and cause damage. Burrow builder equipment can be used at speeds of 5-10 mph, allowing landowners to treat large acreages more quickly than other methods such as trapping or fumigants.

Burrow Building

Burrow Builder Formula is labeled for use with tractor-mounted burrow builders such as the Verminator. Burrow building is a preventative perimeter treatment where artificial burrows are created and bait is placed below ground, intercepting gophers before they enter crop fields. 

Burrow building equipment allows landowners to treat large acreages more quickly with rodenticide bait than doing it by hand.
