When you see gopher holes popping up in your yard, you'll want to have one of these on hand. The Victor® Black Box Gopher Trap effectively kills gophers without the use of chemicals or poisons. The chocker loop-style trap features weather-resistant plastic and galvanized steel construction for superior strength and durability.
Additionally, each trap is easy to use thanks to its EASY-SET® design. The trap come fully assembled and with illustrated operating instructions on setting and placement. As the most effective 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 properly placed in the gopher tunnel to snare the unsuspecting gopher in the spring-triggered loop. 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.

After many attempts and years of attempts to keep gophers out of my 10 acre horse pasture in Oklahoma without success with many different types of traps, poisons and other remedies. I have succeed in about two months with this trap. Very easy to use and you don't have to want long before you catch the gopher after setting the Victor Blackbox. Thanks,

Tried poison, macabre traps, water flooding and other tricks. This trap is the best. You can also reuse the trap since there is no piercing of the trap like the macabre trap. The secret for me is to find fresh dug holes, make an opening so that light and air goes in. Set the trap, cover all around except the little hole on top. Put some grass into the hole to entice the gropher. Few hours later - gopher caught and gone!
