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.

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.
Review RateWELL BUILT & LASTS LIKE IT SHOULD !I HAVE PURCHASED THESE TRAPS FOR YEARS. MANY MAKERS OF THIS TYPE OF TRAP AND MANY BRANDS HAVE BEEN MADE TO BREAK BECAUSE OF A PLASTIC PART ON THE PADDLE. JUNK. NO PLASTIC TO WEAR OUT ON THIS VICTOR MODEL. A COYOTE WILL STEAL THE TRAP SO HE CAN EAT THE GOPHER AND I MIGHT FIND IT IN THE FIELD BEHIND MY HOUSE. SOMETIMES A YEAR LATER. STILL OPERATIONAL. GREAT WORK GUYS !
Review RateGreat new gopher trapsI like these traps, better than the old wooden type, very solid build, should last a long time. Have more spring tension than the older ones. Also can wash them and ready to use again
Review RateGood trapI 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 it
Review Rategot my first gopher the first daygreat 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.

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.
