Hello, I live on 5 acres in Pleasant Hill and the gophers have invaded! I hired a company last year to trap and they caught about 4 (not very successful), but since then they have multiplied. I can't use poison because of wildlife (hawks, kestrels, owls, maybe foxes) on or near my property. What are your recommendations? Thank you, Sandra
Hopefully you are talking about Pocket Gophers and not Moles... :
This is a link to an excellent Extension bulletin on pocket gopher control:
If you have any questions on this please give me a call.
