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.

It is my observation that the ability of the trigger wire to twist sideways reduces its sensitivity. Changing the design of the trigger wire so that any movement would set the trap off would make it work more efficiently.Date published: 2016-02-23Rated 5 out of 5 by Hunterbean from Much better than the traps I used as a kid! I have caught both pocket gophers and moles in these. Work awesome!Date published: 2015-12-15Rated 5 out of 5 by Grumpa from Black box gopher traps I trap gophers & Moles in north Florida professionally now for over 5 years, I been using a Chinch design Trap I find this black box traps is great for Horse pastures .where there isn't a horse getting hurt if the horse step's on.the trap I find that some gophers make a large hole with tunnels going in different directions since this trap goes down 3 inches and is flash with the ground and doesn't 7 to 9 inches sticking out of the ground., no lost time with buried traps. once the gopher is in the trap there is no escaping the trap. It a good trap for Harry home owner. if your Moles are lager. more the 5 inches long this trap will work.Date published: 2015-12-14Rated 5 out of 5 by Jayakumar from Great product - it works very well!

I used to pay my lawn guy $120.00 for 30 day guarantee. Got tired of that. Then one day, I was talking to a neighbor down the street about the gophers. He said, get this trap called the black box. Think I paid $16.00. Bang, I've trapped 12 gophers so far. Sometimes within 30 minutes. Great product! I wish I would have known about it earlier.Date published: 2015-04-16Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Greatest Gopher Trap Ever Invented 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.

This is the best trap ever!!!!!!!! You will not be disappointed.Date published: 2014-04-25Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Idaho Pocket Gophers I raise alfalpha which means lots of gophers. This spring I have caught 21 gophers in two weeks, and when I say caught I mean killed. Without exception this trap kills every gopher it catches, none of that tethering nonesense as with the tunnel traps. Big enough for any gopher, I caught one that was 12" overall length.Date published: 2014-04-23

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.
