When you see gopher holes popping up in your yard, you'll want to have one of these on hand. The Victor® Gopher Trap effectively kills gophers without the use of chemicals or poisons. The trap features a powder coated exterior for rust resistance and galvanized steel construction for superior strength and durability. The trap’s narrow design allows for easy insertion into gopher tunnels and keeps moving parts completely below the surface, safely away from children and pets.
Additionally, each trap is equipped with an “O” ring to stake the trap easily into the ground and prevent run offs. Traps come fully assembled and with illustrated operating instructions on setting and placement. As the most reliable gopher trap on the market, you can rest assured that your yard is safe from the damaging effects of gophers.
Gopher trapping can be done at any time of year, but generally is easiest and most effective during Spring & Fall. Once gopher activity is detected it is important to move quickly as pregnant females can be caught before giving birth to her family. Traps are most effective when placed in the gopher tunnel and with 2 traps back to back. The hole should be covered up with dirt so that it appears as if the trap is part of the runway.
When used correctly, traps produce a catch within 48 hours. It is best to move the trap to another location in the runway if you do not catch a gopher in this timeframe.

Reviewer: S. J. Jensen "DogHasDay"
I'm thrilled with this product. Tried flooding the tunnels several times and then several smoke-bombs to suck the oxygen out of the tunnels. The score was Gophers 14 wins and me with Zero wins... and my plants kept getting destroyed. Purchased two of these traps, set them in the tunnels and did not close-in the tunnels... left them wide open as this attracts the gophers to come plug them back up. Checked on the two traps the next day and each trap had a dead gopher in them. Finally a win for myself and my plants. Now I'm asking neighbors if I can help them with their gophers! These traps make it too easy!

We have used these traps for several years. I have got them from antique stores at first, then found this web site. These are the only way to go. Directions to set them come with it and are simple to set. This is the best Gopher trap!!!!!
First Gopher Down, Only Took Two DaysMay 12, 2011
We have been battling a gopher in our yard for the past year. We tried the granule spread, poison peanuts, flooding, smoke bomb-things, but nothing seemed to work. We bought two Victor Easy set traps; followed the instructions and yesterday afternoon were dancing over the dead carcass of our gopher nemesis. It works if you follow the directions. Great product, but hopefully I don't have to use it again.
30 years of successJuly 04, 2010
My family used this trap for nearly thirty years with a 98-99% success rate. A couple months ago it disappeared after setting it in a hole (cat probably). I tried the other model and could not catch a single gopher. So after wasting my money one the "quick set" model I've ordered the one that has always worked #0615

Impossible to set trapNovember 07, 2010
Reviewer: Dragonfly Guy
I bought this trap with high hopes. When I recieved it I attempted to set it. The directions left something out or it just doesn't work. I contacted Victor via email but they did not respond. After a couple months, trying to set it a few times more, it continued to not be able to be set so I threw it out.Bad product. No support. Don't buy it.
