Best Gopher Poisons
Gophers, or more technically “pocket gophers”, can create damage on your property ranging from torn up sod to destruction of roots to shrubs and tree (eventually killing them), and even gnawed on tubes or wires. This can not only be frustrating but cost several hundred or even thousands of dollars in loss.
Gopher damage is often confused with the work of moles. However, the difference can be discerned by their dirt mounds and tunnel visibility. Gopher mounds are more oblong and crescent-shaped, whereas molehills are almost always more symmetrical. Gophers do not make visible runs or lines in yards, as moles do. Pocket gophers are only found within the Western Hemisphere but run rampant in the United States. So, we’ve collected the best gopher poisons this year and reviewed each of them.
