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.

Going to start taking him on some hikes he seems ready to go, get him into running early. I bought a metal detector-we are going to have some great times together.. I'm 67 today, Have a great Day!

G'morning, why at East Baldwin, at times, it is so much warmer? I have a 1/2 dozen other outdoor temp gauges strategically placed and couple of 1" full opened water bottles, that are shaked if not frozen. We froze yesterday night, winds were from the NE mostly all night.

Highly unlikely QuantumBear. Unless something changes I don't think there will be enough snowmaking hours to have anything ready by this weekend.

Yes Berner! This is the kind of storm that may drop more rain down your way. But everyone should get some decent precipitation!

Benny.....Will this storm bring anything to Lake Arrowhead....I saw your prediction about it being a decent little storm up your way...but we seem to be left out sometimes on the storms....so what do ya think?

I first believed the reason why Autumn seems like the shortest season was due to people celebrating Christmas in November. I then figured that it has to do with the trees passing peak color and the leaves dropping quickly. By Thanksgiving, the trees are almost completely bare and it would make it feel like Autumn is already over. It is past peak here in Lake Arrowhead and it makes me a little sad.
