    Random observations on voles:

    Weather plays a factor, Most are caught on rainy night's

    Glue trap is shit, snap traps all the way

    Work with your neighbours, buy a box of traps and give them some

    The lawn trenches they ate through is damn hard to patch

    Week 1 - 2
    Week 2 - 1
    .
    Week 4 - 1
    .
    Week 6 - 1

    Ending on a positive, nice clean kill last night.

    So did I. Wife did not appreciate. Now I'm trying to trap a fucking gopher. He even got under my basketball net base.

    I flushed him put and its under my damn stairs. Trap is set. Will report back with corpse.

    Trapping a gopher might be even funnier than the squirrel.

    Back when I was a kid, we used to snare gophers by hand with twine. I think that falls outside of acceptable behaviour now.

    We tried on our own for two weeks to get rid of these cocksuckers with baits and traps and still had new holes almost daily so we had a company come out called Lavellan Pest Solutions. He set his own bait and put his own poison through problem areas (under the deck) and we haven't had any new activity a week after he came. He has done a follow up and moved the bait and will be available to us for another 90 days in case we need another solution or more poison placed under our deck.

    It was pricy ($300) but not having these assholes wreak havoc in our back yard was well worth the cost.

    I Have a pocket gopher, I've lost a couple of trees and asparagus patch. I have the gopherhawk but haven't been successful, I talked the pest guy going door to door today and said they're hard to get rid of. I have a puppy and what other options should I consider before calling in the pro's ?

    A pocket gopher? Put a ham wallet outside. While the pocket gopher is trying to stuff itself into the ham wallet, you should be able to take care of it pretty easily.

    Same. I only snared a couple though, I got a .22 when I was around 6, snaring was pretty lame after that.

    .22 is a great thing for a kid. I didn't have one. I think that's why I am the way I am now. Or that's what I tell my therapist.
