Mountain pocket gophers (Thomomys talpoides) and plains pocket gophers (Geomys bursarius) are a problem to rangelands in Colorado. A new chlorophacinone (50 ppm) pelleted bait was applied to active burrow systems by hand baiting. Efficacy on the Geomys plot was 100%, while 94.73% of the Thomomys were controlled with the product.
