Basic kit for $60.00. Save $8 if purchased separately. Everything you need to do your own trapping in one handy kit. This kit contains 2 small traps, 2 medium traps, neon pink flags to mark your traps, 18-inch digging tool, designed to open tunnels for both moles and gopnhes, and the DVD "Straightforward Gopher and Mole Control without the Poisons." Forget those traps that require digging down to the main burrow. The GopherGoner trap is set from the surface, the easy way. Additional traps can be ordered for larger properties.
Our 98-minute professionally produced instructional DVD providing on site demonstrations of Gregg and I successfully trapping gophers and moles filmed at 4 locations. Let us show you the best place to set the traps, how to set the Gopher Goner trap correctly and many other tips from the professionals. You will see us in action trapping in private residences and also commercially in parks and vineyards. This DVD is a must for anyone who wants to learn a system of control for gophers and moles quickly and effectively.
The 18-inch digging tool is without a doubt the best tool for opening gopher tunnels and preparing for trap placement. Warning: if you dig out the tunnel larger than the jaws of the trap, the gopher will circumvent the trap and you will miss him. The GopherGoner™ Digging Tool is proportioned to open gopher tunnels to the correct diameter. Use the Digging Tool to probe the tunnel for forks. The Digging Tool can be used with any type of trap, but we highly recommend using our GopherGoner™ trap.
The small trap is the preferred trap for the Eastern Mole and Star Nosed Mole species that inhabit the eastern USA and Midwest, as well as the Broadfooted Mole in California and the Coast Mole in Oregon and Washington. GG1, the small trap, is the preferred trap for use on European moles found in the UK and throughout continental Europe. Also, if you trap juvenile gophers on a regular basis, you should consider using GG1, the small trap, as they are very effective on small gophers, and they fit just right in the small tunnels, eliminating the need for extra digging. *Note that some trappers from Ohio, Michigan and Canada have reported better success with GG2, the medium size trap since those geographic regions seem to have relatively large moles.
The medium trap is what we use 95% of the time trapping in Northern California. It is effective on all 7 North American pocket gophers species, and is your best choice for trapping adult gophers throughout the USA, Canada, Mexico, Central and South America.
