or runway at each tree site (10 lbs per acre). Cover each placement with grass
or shingle to avoid exposing nontarget organisms.

10 lbs per acre for Meadow voles (all states except Oregon) and Mountain
voles (Idaho, Oregon, Washington only).
If populations are high, make a
second application 1 - 2 months after the first. The maximum application rate is
40 lbs per acre per year for Pine voles, and 20 lbs per acre per year for Meadow
and Mountain voles. To avoid exposing nontarget organisms, clean up any bait
