How To Get Rid Of Mr. Gopher - No More Caddyshack Dancing




We had a problem with Gophers building condos in the backyard. I am one that won't use chemicals. My Aunt told me about getting the wires with the flags on them that the contractors use and stick them in each hole. The vibration will scare away the gophers. It worked. Now, to keep them away you need to take the flags and put them around the parameter of the yard. This will keep them away. We have had no more problems with Mr. Gopher do his dances or condos building. emoticon emoticon

  • I wonder if this would work to keep the gophers from raiding my garden containers. Last year one ate all my zucchini blossoms and upended the pot. - by MILPAM3
  • I wonder if this will work for moles as well? I don't have a problem myself but will keep the tip to pass on to others. emoticon - by GREENWELLIES
