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.

Review RateBest trap on the market
My son is good at digging and finding where the tunnel bifurcates to get proper placement of the Black Box. That gives a successful catch almost every time. Sure, sometimes the sneaky animal will back fill. The recent problem we have is lazy foxes. Instead of skillfully catching the pests for us, they dig up the full trap and take off with it (which is why i just ordered more) ! Cute ! I love that these traps can accomplish what i need without using poisons.
Review Ratethese are amazing and i am ordering more.
we are run over with squirrels coming to pecan trees...even when the nuts are still green on the tree....great job. ordering several more as they love the pomegrante .am ordering more.
Review RateA very smart gopher - or so I thought!
I was using everything I could think of to catch the critter digging a hole under my deck. I put out mouse traps, rat traps, and glue boards in front of the hole; but it would just dig another hole beside the traps, etc. What a smart gopher I thought! Finally I put this trap halfway in the newest hole and next morning it was gone and the other traps were disturbed but nothing was there, so I know something happened. I scouted in the tall grass about 50 feet away, and saw something squealing in the grass with the trap still on. It wasn't a gopher, but a huge rat! It was so big that it didn't even fit in the trap, but it was caught enough to disable the thing. My rifle finished the job. I have also caught several gophers since then. Great product!
Review Rateone of the best gopher traps out on the market
I would first like to say that this trap is one of the best traps for gophers out there. I am an owner of a small business that traps gophers. when I first started I tried everything. This Is one of the best gopher traps out there. I like it so much that I bought 12 of these six packs to add to my collection of traps. My gopher trapping company is now ready to go out there and get the gophers.
Review Rategreatworks great and much longer lived than wooden traps
Review RateStill trying
I give a perfect rating for quality and easy of use of this trap. So far I haven't caught 1 gopher. I have gophers from hell. They are smart and just fill the trap with dirt repeatedly. I've tried potato, carrot and broc.. no bait seams to draw them in. I cannot complain about the actual function and sturdiness of the trap. I will continue my attempt. Dynamite is quickly becoming my next option since I've now done more damage digging holes looking for the tunnels.
Review RateGot them
Did the trick and caught the gophers, problem I had to find them first
Great Trap! Been using the pincer type traps in our citrus operation for many decades and these are much better. Easy to set in hole and more efficient catch rate.
Review RateBest gopher trap for me!
This is my absolute favorite gopher trap. It is well constructed. I bought more this year because I needed to add to the ones I bought last year. This model is the easiest for me to set. Some others I cannot set because I don't have the strength but these I can set on the ground and push down to set. I tried another similar one but it was round and difficult to set. The design is perfect. I plan to tell the local stores they need to carry these Victor gopher traps.
Review RateGreat Trap
Best method to get gophers. Best product of this type I have ever had. The sturdiness of the materials the trap is made of separates it from similar traps. Only issue I ever had was dogs or coyotes dragging the trap off when a gopher is caught. Solved that problem by staking the trap down. I strongly recommend this trap.

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.
