1. Choose a fresh mound. If you're not sure, look for the mound with the loose dirt (not caked down)
2. Probe around the mound, looking for the hole. I used a old steak knife when a more formal "probe" wasn't around. You'll know you hit the hole when it goes in nice and smooth.
3. Save your sod! Cut out a piece with some determined and precise stabs with your shovel.
4. Place your trap. Not sure which direction the gopher will come from? I'm not either. I'll use two of these suckers on either sides of the hole, back to back. But if you just have 1, direct your trap towards the source of the infestation.
5. Seal dirt around not just the death-opening of the trap, but sprinkle it so that everything is covered except for the hole in the back.
6. Wait for the little bugger to get curious at why his hole is open. Job done.
For extra pro tips, try to camouflage these traps so that people walking by won't see them. Because with how well these traps work, these are hot goods. True story, your traps may be stolen. Too bad they don't have a secondary trap for would-be thieves!
I was watching as the dirt was being moved up thru that new hole and I stabbed at the ground with my shovel and went about 8 inches deep where I thought the pesky critter was, since then the gopher activity has subsided. Did I scare the living crap out of him or did I actually slice him in half?
I filled in the area and I'm patiently waiting for his return.
In the back yard I noticed some new activity, as I was watching, dirt was being pushed up, I was excited, I got the trap and set it and put some dirt around the area. Then for a few days I waited, on the second or third morning I look at the trap and it was sprung. The mother of all gophers, It was a big rodent with fangs down to here, he musta weighed a half pound.
This trap works, just gotta be tricky and patient.
Put a small amount of dirt on the bottom inside of the trap.
I live in Colorado and we have pocket gophers.
Here is what I do.
Find a freshly covered hole, or a pile of fresh loose dirt. Or just let the dog find a hole with a fresh scent.
Bury the front of the trap so their is no light coming through the sides only the back.
Wait 2 days. Check the trap.
You usually will either have a gopher or the gopher will have filled the trap with dirt.
It it is filled with dirt, this just means you are in the right area. I have found that it is best to have the back end of the trap elevated a little bit.
If the trap is full of dirt simply empty it rebait it and reset it.
No more gophers near my fruit trees or vegetable garden. I live on 3+ acres and have 5 traps that I keep active. It is June and so far I have caught 4 this year. They killed an apple tree on my property which I took as an act of war. This is my weapon of choice.
