    Got Gophers, No Mounds

    I have a customer that is having a gopher problem, but does not have any of the typical "horseshoe" mounds. She only has "feeding holes" made by the gopher in the grass area. Is there a proper way to treat these or to find the main run? I am using a "gopher getter jr." probe with strychnine bait.

    Show Me The Body

    From time to time I attempt to catch gophers from a customer's property and go through the process of trying to open the lateral and follow it to the runway in order to set my traps. It can be very difficult to do sometimes, due to the type of soil, moisture, landscaping features, etc. I position the trap in the most likely spot, cover the hole, then check back the next day, and often for sever...

    The Stability of Strychnine

    I have been treating for gophers using a rodenticide with strychnine. I was wondering how long strychnine remains toxic in the soil. I would like to till up the soil and plant a garden. My concerns are if I bring the bait back to the topsoil will the active ingredient still be toxic? I was also wondering if the plants would systemically take in the pesticide and make them unsafe to eat. I have ...

    Go Fer The Gopher

    I have very little experience in pocket gophers but did a job last week for a lady where I tried using "giant destroyers" - a sulfur bomb, and I used 4 in 4 different holes. She called today and said she picked up some traps because the sulfur bombs didn't work. She had them trapped within the day. Question is, after using the sulfur bombs how can I tell if I got them or not? Would trapping wit...

    Boppin' In The Burrows

    I've been using fumitoxin for gopher control. It states that the product can not be applied closer than 15 feet from an occupied home. An AG inspector said I can not use this product if the burrow leads to the house even though the application is MORE than 15 feet away. My question is: since they have a 15 feet application limit does this mean the gas can only travel 15 feet and no more, and i...

    A Gopher Aftermath

    A friend had pocket gophers in his yard. They disappeared on their own two years ago. Now the homeowner is experiencing a lot of dirt caving in around his home. Small pockets of dirt, most about the size of a softball, cave in as it's walked on. My best guess is that the tunnels that the gophers made are collapsing because the gophers are not there to maintain them any more. Does this sound pla...
