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.

Have more spring tension than the older ones. Also can wash them and ready to use againDate published: 2016-11-21Rated 4 out of 5 by gopher catcher from Good trap I ordered the gopher trap about a month ago and so far I have caught 7 gophers in all. My only complaint is you have to find their tunnel before you can catch them and I have to dig up the yard to find it. It works well once you find the tunnel. I'm glad to have it, I just don't like digging up the yard to get to itDate published: 2016-11-14Rated 5 out of 5 by Jmac from got my first gopher the first day great product, after learning how to find the gopher tunnel and setting the trap, the rest was so easy. easy trap to set and discard. My only regret is I should have ordered more.Date published: 2016-11-09Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Best Gopher trap ever!!!

They are very easy to use and they work like magic!!Date published: 2016-10-24Rated 5 out of 5 by Lhall from Excellent product and helpful staff The black box gopher trap is the absolute best mole ( yes I said mole) trap you can find. Worked with two days. I had a little trouble placing my order on my own so I called the customer service line and the help was above and beyond what I would have expected. A little wait on the line was well worth the service provided. Thank you.Date published: 2016-09-05Rated 5 out of 5 by Chewy from Gophers Back in the early to mid 50's my brother and I trapped gophers as a way to make extra spending money. The county paid .25 per tail and my dad paid us .10 per tail. We used the red wooden Victor box traps. When gophers started coming up in my yard I found the black boxes and it was like old home. They are great if used right.Date published: 2016-09-04Rated 5 out of 5 by Montana Tom from Gopher Killers Got 6 of these traps to cover 20 acres of gopher management. They work great by killing the varmit not like spring traps that grab a leg. I added a chain to anchor the trap as our hawks fly off with gopher and trap if not anchored.Date published: 2016-06-27Rated 5 out of 5 by Louis from Works great I bought these a few weeks ago after spending $100's on every other gopher killer and deterrent on the market. Within 2 days I had 6 gophers and haven't had one mound since. They are so easy to use and effective!!!Date published: 2016-06-08

How difficult are they to set? Do you have to dig out the hole to set it?These traps are easy to use with their Easy-Set® design. A hole would be dug into the tunnel so the trap can be placed in line with the tunnel.Date published: 2016-09-27
I have tried other types of gopher traps and have this fear of setting it off & hurting myself. Is it easy for women to set, and can I hurt myself?I am a female as well and have tried several different gopher traps and find this one to be the safest and easiest to set. I have also had the most luck trapping with this brand.Date published: 2016-06-18

The quantity of the Blackbox Gopher Traps is a bit confusing -- are there 3 traps in a single box for $29.94 or just one? If you indicate "1" in the quantity section of the order form, does that mean 1 box or one trap?
I'm having problem with chipmunks in my crawl space on the House what is the best way to get rid of them ?
How do you remove the gopher from the trap, and is it dead immediately or does it linger. I sure don't want to remove a live gopher and have to kill it.

Gophers excavate soil from their tunnels, creating large, horseshoe-shaped mounds. Gopher mounds are typically larger than Mole hills with the entrance hole at an angle to the ground surface.
