My dad started selling these traps in the 1950s. They originally were a treated wood but eventually they would get chewed on by gophers (revenge motivated), stolen by fox, or decayed by weather (forgotten for months). They sold for $3 each or so much a case. In our area a bounty was paid for the tail (today its at $3 each). I had at one time 12 traps and made some good money trapping gophers. Over the years, I've trapped hundreds of the little bastxxs. Why the hatred? Pocket gophers will eat your garden alive, drop 8' Norway pines, ruin your lawn and destroy underground electric wires. What's worse, if you let them be, the fox and badgers will come in to get them and then you'll see what real dirt moving and destruction means. A war zone!

This new plastic version works as well and doesn't get damaged by weather but costs significantly more than other open trap types. However, they work better than any other trap I've used as they are easy to set, no wounded gophers (never seen a live one yet)and will get the gopher 4 out of 5 times. That said, here's some observations:

1. To find a gopher run, take a pointed steel rod (I have one with a cross handle on the top and a stepping bar on one side toward the bottom). Go around the outside of the latest gopher mound inserting the rod 6-12" into the ground and about 12" apart. When the rod "falls" through the ground after initial insertion, you've found the tunnel. Take a square head spade and dig a square hole , flat bottom, with the tunnel at either or both ends. (Use two traps or seal one tunnel if your in the middle of a run). Butt the set trap up tight against the tunnel. Lightly cover the top of the trap with dirt (grass over the tiny gaps where the metal parts enter the trap, then dirt).

Have had serious gopher problems for YEARS. Most effective up to this point have been (for me) the "smoke bombs". those cost about $7 for 4 of them, and for them to be successful I needed to locate about 10 or so holes, make sure they did follow a tunnel and them bomb them all at one time. It was somewhat effective, and with no bodies to account for you never really knew.

THESE TRAPS HOWEVER: WORK GREAT

Ive never liked traps because theyd say something like "find the main gopher tunnel, and then place it in there...etc" And Id think "ya right, point ONE out to me and Id be GLAD to do just that..."

Ive killed 4 gophers so far using these traps. Two yesterday, and one so far today (=3 dead gophers) and one a couple days ago...

What I have found effective SO FAR (still getting the "hang of it") is to EITHER:

1) find an OPEN HOLE and use a stick and "TRY TO" determine which direction it leads, and THEN dig an opening in that direction about 1-2 feet AWAY from its opening large enough to put TWO of these traps inside it BACK TO BACK. THEN (set the traps) put them inside, cover up ALL the holes so NO LIGHT PASSES INTO the tunnel. And WAIT - come back in an hour Im sure MOST LIKELY you got one! no kidding, see my uploaded pictures.

Ive gotten 1 this way

2) IF YOU FIND A HOLE THAT IS CLOSED / PLUGGED **AND** THE DIRT PLUGGING IT IS "POWDERY" (is literally the consistency of powder) THEN (most likely) a gopher is INSIDE THAT TUNNEL.

In THIS SCENARIO put ONE TRAP facing INTO the tunnel, cover up all holes so NO LIGHT can enter. Come back in about an hour, or the next day (for me 1 hour is suffice) AND *ALMOST CERTAIN* YOU CAUGHT ONE!

I usually do not write reviews on Amazon (or anywhere else for that matter), but I really have to make an exception in this case because of how well this device works. It is rare for any device to work exactly as expected, but the Victor Blackbox Gopher Trap works above and beyond any expectations that I had for it. I do not work for the Victor company, and I have no financial stake in the sales of their products. I am simply an exasperated homeowner who got fed up wih gophers tearing up his property and decided to give this device a try.

I had used poison pellets, smoke bombs, water hose, and those silly sonic devices... nothing worked and those gophers were probably laughing at me. With the Blackbox, it's nearly a sure thing. Also, you actually get to see the results with a dead gopher right in front of you, unlike smoke bombs and poison which are always a guessing game as to whether or not they actually did their job.

Within 2 day of getting this product, I had already caught 3 gophers. One of those gophers was caught less than 1 hour after I set the trap. Free lunch on my property is now officially over.

The key to the effectiveness of this trap is to find a freshly dug up gopher mound.

My sure kill method:

1) Find a freshly dug up gopher mound.
2) Dig out the mound until you find the tunnel.
3) Place the activated trap flush with the entrance of the tunnel, with the small round hole (on one side of the trap) facing outward.
4) Cover up the gaps at the top, sides and bottom of the trap with dirt so that it looks like the tunnel extends into the Blackbox, but make sure the opening to the trap is unobstructed from inside their tunnel.
