Getting rid of gophers?


How do I get rid of gophers in my yard?. It seems to me that they are all over the place, front yard and back yard. I have a dog and children, therefore I am not inclining towards any poison that may affect my pet or children.

Thanks

raise the greens fee?
change the tee-off times?

or simply google GOPHER control if the problem is small and furry.....

it's a dirty job, but.... lol

hey wrangler, maybe they could import some gophers to tear up the greens and then the golfers will just go away?

This is true, but then you'd have an even bigger problem when Bill Murray shows up to care for the greens. But that is a Cinderella story...

Possibly not, but DM already gave good advice in post #4; do a seach on 'gopher control', he/she will get about 300,000 hits.

Haa!! I just realized what I wrote. Yes, I am refering to gophers, not golfers. LOL At least I think that is what is making the wholes in my backyard. One neighbor told me that they have had these in the past

Call Bill Murry. BTW, Did you mean *golfers* or *gofers*? If you meant golfers, I would put in lots of sand traps.

Dropping Juicy Fruit gum down the holes may work.....it works for moles. The eat it, get constipated, and die.

I may give this a try. It sounds simple enough.

cinchtraps.com

or

traplineproducts.com

I ordered both kinds and they both work great. I've had them for a week and have already caught 3 gophers.

Garden hose/baseball bat/dog.

It seems my folks built a house right in the middle of gofer heaven when we were kids.

It took a couple of years to clean them out.
