I gas them out with propane, I run a hose down a hole attached to a 20 lb propane bottle and let the gas out very slowly. Propane is heavier than air and it will seep down in to the area's where they bear children and live. Does not take long for them to suffocate.

CanyonMan, those look like targets to me.

LOL.. They are! Long slinky targets. Trust me, we kill everyone of them we see. If your NOT a rattler, your safe out here. If you are, you expire! haha.

This. I’ve had luck with smoke bomb things made for rodents.

are u sure those are not caused by those grub eating moles?

I had moles, and the best cure was to kill the grubs with diazinon granules. They left when there was no food. And when that became hard to find, I tried all sorts of traps, and in the end, the most effective was a sand wedge. Just thump on where the tunnel was moving and extract the dead vermin.

No gophers, but plenty of moles. If I blew up my yard, it would not look much more torn up than it is now. And, yes, I've considered it.

I don't think that's gopher damage. Looks more like moles. Maybe armadillos.

My "GO TO" for gophers is to open up a fresh hole, insert a burning "road flare", close it back up and let the gases do the work for you.

We don’t get many moles here. Too cold. We get little pocket gophers and voles. I saw it last night. It’s another vole. I hate voles. They seem harder to trap. Gophers walk right over the trap to plug the hole I cut into the tunnel. Voles plug the tunnel and go another way.

If all else fails I’ll just rototill the whole thing. I’m redoing that part of the yard next year anyway.
