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.

@Nature
Thats all the admins have been doing is constantly moving this kind of crap to the threads and continually begging folks to follow that one simple rule. I left this particular chain of posts in the chatbox so that the many viewers of SCM could see what we are dealing with. Right now I am going to delete the outstanding posts in the chatbox that break our simple rule.
@Everyone
Going forward, if this continues, the posts will be permanently deleted and the user will be banned from posting in the chatbox. If that user can't be civil in the threads then the next step will be to ban the user from the site for a period of time which includes banning their ability to view the site. This has been going on long enough and I want to make sure that everyone understands that going forward we will be applying this new policy. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

I was a bit surprised that this mask chat was allowed on the chatbox.
If they are moved they should “all” be moved.

I wanted to take this moment to make myself transparent as SCM ALERT can be various people (but is also very automated). This previous post is from me, begging you all, to please keep these arguments/debates to the forum pages and if it is political in nature, please use the Political Discussion Forum. The chatbox was never meant to be a place to argue or debate right and wrong. This is an extremely heated topic and belongs in the forum section of this site. Thank you all!
