I HATE rodents!
As a rather stiff and elderly gardener, I hate digging the holes necessary to trap moles and gophers with cinch traps. I've tried Mole Max with little result. Any other suggestions for discouraging moles and gophers in my garden? I just lost a lovely little Roma tomato just as it was beginning to bloom because something chewed through it's taproot! Thanks for your advice.

I'm sorry to say traps are the most effective way to control your pest.
