How Do You Get Rid of Gophers?

Many experts and professionals deem pocket gopher traps to be one of the more effective forms of gopher control and ways to get rid of gophers.

Instrumental to the art of gopher trapping, however, is to first understand the biology and behavior of these creatures.

Understanding gopher behavior helps property owners improve their efficiency in using gopher traps. You become enabled to more accurately develop strategies on how to trap gophers.

Gopher Biology and Behavior

The pocket gopher is active throughout the year and is a herbivore. As herbivores, a gopher’s standard diet includes a wide variety of vegetation, but generally herbaceous plants, roots, shrubs and trees.

In many yards it is often common for these ground creatures to completely destroy the roots and the fleshy portions of plants encountered while tunneling.

Hence, if you are trying to determine where to find gophers in your lawn, you should typically first start in areas of dense vegetation.

Why Gopher Traps are Effective?

Gophers unlike yard moles do not leave behind visible surface tunnels. However, gophers too create vast networks of underground tunnels and often their feeding tunnels lay only about five inches below the ground. As gophers often use networks of feeding tunnels as tools for acquiring food, the burrowing herbivores are often compelled to keep such tunnels open.

This very fact is the basic for Gopher traps and is what makes the gopher trap most effective!

To be effective, the trap must be set to catch the gopher underground. The goal is to trap (kill) the gopher when it travels through or attempts to plug one of its tunnels.
