    How do you handle working with Talpirid when there are pets in the household?

    Read the label... there's directions on there for that.

    I was also told that a dog would have to consume a good number of the worms to have an effect (talporid sales guy) but I would rather be safe than sorry.

    Thanks for the help Jason. I don't have it yet and I can't seem to find any info online about using it around pets. I want to make sure it's safe to use around our small 15lb dog before I buy it. Any suggestions on where to buy it?

    You can buy it at lesco. It goes in the ground so I would not worry about in less your dog is know to eat worms.
