About Moles and Mole Bait
Moles are insectivores that prefer
solitude except during mating season and actively forage year round in their below ground tunnel systems. They
execute similar daily patterns for accumulation of energy derived from soft-bodied insects, worms, and vegetative
Moles may be distinguished from meadow voles, gophers, and shrews by their naked, pointed nose that extends well
in front of the mouth. Small eyes and ears are concealed by fur. Their spade like forefeet are wider than they
are long. Discharged mounded soil and heaved runways are indicators of this pest's presence.
Mole Patrol is a ready to use pelleted bait designed specifically to be accepted
by moles. This highly palatable bait has unique attractants proven effective for the mole, notorious for its very
cautious eating manner of what it eats, especially baits.
Directions Are Easy To Follow
Brief but descriptive instructions that will not challenge or confuse the end user.
A Control Agent That Answers The Call
RCO Mole Patrol blends Chlorophacinone™,
a historically sound toxicant (anti-coagulant) that has performed well in field and structural baiting applications
for many years. The pellet is stabilized with Sustane™
for extended shelf life. The product of choice in commercial baiting projects as well as homeowner use.
Studies Support The Claim
Studies have shown single feeding control. Generally, it's used in a multi-feed format by the homeowner or professional.

Baiting Throughout Year
Moles readily accept the pelleted bait throughout the year, even more readily during the winter months because
of limited insect and worm populations available in the upper soil profile. Moles do not go dormant, as do certain
Safety and Palatability Improve The Bait Value
Enhanced palatability produces second generation anticoagulant results. Vitamin K-l is the effective antidote
in the event of accidental consumption.
RCO Inc. a Company Born Out Field Experience
RCO has its roots going back to the Mid 40's in research and development
of working baits for Agriculture and Specialty markets in the Western United States.
This product may be used only in lawns, golf courses and other turf areas to control eastern moles
(Scalopus aquatios) star-nosed moles (Condylura cristata), or (Scapanus app.) moles that occur in the Western US. This bait
must be applied under ground and must be applied manually. This product contains a slow-acting poison. Several
treatments may be necessary to control mole infestations.
Subsurface runways are detected as raised ridges of vegetation and soil caused by moles foraging just below
the soil surface. These ridges are especially noticeable when grass on top of them yellows. Apply bait to each
active runway identified. Using a 1/2-inch diameter dowel or metal rod (or other suitable implement) make a small
opening in the top of the runway.
Conical Mounds and Deep Tunnels
Moles may also construct deeper tunnel systems 4-5 inches below the ground surface. Such deeper tunnel systems
are betrayed by the presence of conical mounds. Resistance on the probe decreases abruptly once the tunnel is entered.
To bait deeper tunnels, probe until a tunnel is located. Enlarge the probe hole as needed to accommodate the passage
