One of the more dreaded things about having a yard to call your own is the abundance of rodents and pests that decide they like your yard too. Some of these pests can range from snakes, spiders, rats, and of course, gophers. Gophers may look super cute, minus their teeth, but they can cause huge issues when it comes to your yard. Gophers love to dig in yards that have beautiful vegetation as well as dirt that is easy for them to dig through. If you have both of those, you pretty much have the perfect environment for gophers, which is good for them, but bad for you. Gophers can dig up to 10-30 different holes in less than a month. With this cute and destructive rodent, when they are digging, if they find something that looks delicious, they’ll eat it. If they come across something they can’t eat, they will chew right through it. This can include sprinkler lines, phone and cable cords, and whatever else is resting beneath the surface of your yard.
Are you looking for a humane way to get rid of your gopher problem?
Lucky for you, we came across this method which was posted by YouTuber weimer62000. He decided to make a video showing the best way to catch a gopher that’s been digging holes in your yard. Honestly when I first saw what he was doing, I was really confused and had no idea what was going to happen. But in this short video, he does something that’s seems almost impossible. If you have a gopher problem, you’ll want to watch this.
I am so impressed at how quickly and easily this humane gopher trap worked. In less than a minute, he set up the trap and had a gopher trapped inside of the gallon jug. You can keep your yard looking beautiful, while humanely catching a rodent that is set on destroying all of your hard work. Before releasing the gopher back into the wild, make sure you check with your local animal control center to see where they should be released and what the exact laws are for your area.
