When you see gopher holes popping up in your yard, you'll want to have one of these on hand. The Victor® Easy Set® Gopher Trap effectively kills gophers without the use of chemicals or poisons. The trap features galvanized steel construction for superior strength and durability. The trap’s narrow design with short base allows for easy insertion into gopher tunnels and keeps moving parts completely below the surface, safely away from children and pets.
Victor® Easy Set ® Gopher Traps are easy to use and 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.
This economical twin-pack contains 2 traps per pack for a total of 4 traps.

If you can locate the gopher tunnel these traps will catch them........finding the tunnel is what takes most of your time.
My favorite trapJanuary 01, 2014
I have been trapping gophers on 120 acres of sandy land pastures for more than 40 years and have used several types of gopher traps. The Victor Easy Set gopher trap is by far the best gopher trap I have ever used. Not only is it easy to set but it is highly effective and very economical compared to other traps I have used. I absolutely love this trap and would recommend it to anyone needing to control gophers.
Effective trapDecember 02, 2012
An old style design, pretty much a copy of Macabee traps. These were sold individually for about $8 at Ace Hardware in my area, the popular big stores didn't have them. Did a little research on the internet on how to find the tunnels to set them. Within 24 hours, a gopher was caught. They are reusable, so I set them in a different spot in my yard that may be infested. RESPONSE FROM VICTOR PEST DECEMBER 03, 2012 Dear Mark, Thank you for your online review!

good trapsAugust 19, 2012
My Dad started trapping pocket gophers 45 years ago with 8 #0615 Victor traps. In seven years he trapped over 800 of the pesky things from a ten acre patch. One trap was lost, one trap was loaned out and never returned, and I wore another out. That left me with 5 of "the old green traps". I bought four of these easy sets to replenish my trap supply. I like this model for the bigger tunnels and still use the #0615 for small tunnels.

Have used Victor gopher & mole traps my entire life. They are easy to use and work great. I have taught "novice trappers", ladies, & others how to use these with instant success.
Highly recommend vs. Sweeny trapOctober 08, 2010
First time trapping, local hardware store had Sweeny traps. Purchased a set and was unable to set. Returned them and bought pair of Victor - NO problem setting. Set at 10am - had gopher in trap at 2pm. BUT just FYI I purchased a pair at Farm and Fleet for $7.99.
