I actually have a Black Box trap...never caught a thing with it

If you make a complete seal around the entrance by packing dirt around it, it works great. If there is any light or air seeping in, including the holes where trap bar passes through the top of the box, the gopher will be spooked and not enter the trap. The only hole that should be exposed is the one at the far end of the trap. That will lure the bugger in. One last thing, it's also important to use gloves to set the trap, since your scent will make them wary.

My fastest catch with these black box traps was literally 2 minutes. It wasn't uncommon to catch one in an hour or less.

I read a lot of gardening magazines and the method people say is most successful is using Juicy Fruit gum, onlu JF works). Take a stick out of the foil wrapper, give it a few twists and put it down the hole. I've heard many good reports on this, crazy as is sounds, so it is sure worth a try. Don't chew it first, buy yourself another pack. lol!

It sounded like a good idea. Tried it. I don't think BB gophers like chewing gum. The neighbors do though.

No good deed goes unpunished.

Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either. Just pretty much leave me alone.

I agree on the box traps. Done correctly, they're darn near 100% successful. Trick is tiny little pinhole for light. Not that I care, but death is not necessarily swift. Just don't want any complaints about "You didn't tell me it would be gruesome!" Hey, they're vermin.
