How do we get rid of gophers?

We have many recommendations, including some very interesting suggestions from listeners.

We recommend:

• Gopher Traps

• Gas Cartridges

• Gopher Poisoned Pellets

Ultra Sonic Vibrating Stakes (Gopher Gitters)

Gopher Spurge: Euphorbia lathyris


• The Pickle Jar Solution: Fill up a one gallon pickle jar with water (click here to purchase gallon pickle jars), then put a filled pickle jar in the middle of the garden. Then place filled pickle jar in your garden, about every 12 feet. When gophers burrow, the jars vibrate and make the gophers think they are coming to a river bed and they will go somewhere else!
