The Gophinator gopher trap eliminates the problem of trap shyness in a number of ways.  It employs a powerful torsional type of mechanism which draws the gopher into a pivot point at the front of the trap and applies more than enough power to hold and kill even the largest adults quickly and consistently.  The theory here is that if the gopher is killed on its first encounter with a gopher trap, it never gets the opportunity to learn to avoid traps.

5/5 Best Pocket Gopher Trap Out There, 11/09/2021
Reviewer: Russ
Company: Rusty Extermination
I've tried several traps with limited success, until a neighbor got me onto these. The trick is to buy 2, and hook them together on a 3 foot cable or chain. Dig until you find the tunnel spilt, and set one in each tunnel. I've got a 95%+ catch rate with these. They don't rust and they're easy to set.

Great traps, Love using them and they don't rust if you leave them for a few days.
5/5 Great trap, 05/19/2021
Reviewer: Chris Hickey
Company: The critter Gitters Oregon
One of my favorite gopher traps! I'm trapping over a thousand every year and this is probably my best go to when not using the cinch trap. It is easy to set and not really any wire for the gopher to walk over , I always paint mine a soft brown which really increases the catch rate, I'm excited to use the Magnum model that I just received.
5/5 This trap works, 05/01/2021
Reviewer: Doug melton
This trap got two problem gophers first try, that were evading/escaping normal hardware store traps. The Gophinator has much stronger spring and is much faster, which I think is what got the two escape artists. Note, this trap is more difficult to set because of the stronger spring. I decided to use a twist tie to keep the trigger firmly down when setting the spring, as i didn't want accidentally set the trap off while winding the spring around or moving the trap.. Then just remove the twist tie before placing the trap

Easiest trap to set on the market without firing. Great catch ratio.
5/5 Fantastic product!, 03/26/2021
Reviewer: Liz White
These traps are well-made. Need some hand-strength to set. They work well. Wish they came with a little cable. Something is needed to prevent losing a trap, and it would be nice if they came with a piece of lightweight cable attached.
5/5 5/5 Great product!, 02/06/2021
Reviewer: Roger
Bought six traps to try my first time. Easily set up and caught a mole the same day. Like the design, materials and manufacture quality. Bought 14 of them again recently, hoping to control the problems caused by gophers and moles. The gophers and moles have bothered me for years and can not get rid of them from my lawns even though I have tried many traps and devices.
3/5 Gophinator efficiency, 07/31/2020
Reviewer: Wayne
I bought six Gophinators and two Black Holes traps. Placed all eight traps out. Caught seven pocket moles with the Black Hole and one with the Gophinator. Both are very easy to set. Black Hole traps are about 2X the price of the Gophinator but obviously has higher efficacy in catching moles.

Bought a dozen to start with And try out on 600 acres. Bought another 2 dozen after a couple weeks of using them. Best traps I've used in the past 20 years. High catch rate.

Had them for years, that's why I bought more. I have 1 and a 1/2 acre now so needed more
5/5 Gophinator, 05/29/2020
Reviewer: Britt Hoberg
Best gopher trap out there. I'm already up to 20 gophers. All my neighbors want me to come to their house.
5/5 Go get em!, 05/02/2020
Reviewer: Brit
Caught 6 gophers and counting! We weren’t quite sure what critter (pocket gophers, moles or voles), so we set 3 different types of traps. These were the only ones catching anything and sure enough it was gophers. It’s been working best for us to set two in opposite directions down in a gopher pathway. No bait needed and we attached strings with a little stake and cover with a little dirt and a plastic tub (so our cats don’t stick their hands in a trap) and check after a handful of hours! If they don’t catch something we leave them longer or move them to an area that has fresh dirt moved.

Works beautifully, caught 4 gophers, easy to set and remove gophers.
5/5 Very happy with my Gophinator gopher Trap, 02/10/2020
Reviewer: Karen Gless
Company: homeowner
I just bought 2 Gophinators and 1 moleinator. I already had the black boxes. In the front of my house I have not been successful catching a gopher. I set the black boxes, nothing. The Gophinator came highly recommended by professionals that use them at the Native Plant Society conference I attended. I set the Gophinators in their tunnel (I think I didn't cover them with dirt). The next day there was a lookout hole nearby so the gopher was still free. I put in the Moleinator and got him. With in 2 days I had him, yea! I highly recommend getting both the Gophinator and the Moleinator.

4/5 Best Gopher Trap, 04/26/2019
Reviewer:
Best trap for gophers. Bought 3 traps and caught 3 gophers on first day. Put trap in entrance holes. Used no bait. Set traps out in early morning before they are out for day.
5/5 The best, 04/12/2019
Reviewer: John LaPuma
Easily the best trap for gophers, and durable. Enjoyed receiving the WCS catalog too...lots of thoughtful items for ensnaring pests.
5/5 Tried several; this one works., 03/08/2019
Reviewer: Epoq3
Company: n/a
I've tried a few types of traps. Most are poorly designed or overly complicated. This one has a simple, effective design that works well. There is some skill involved -- you have to find a hole that the gophers travel through; the trap has to be positioned so the gopher cannot easily go around it; and MOST IMPORTANTLY always secure the trap so the gopher doesn't run off with it after being caught (it doesn't kill/immobilize them immediately). I only wish they were lower in cost. They are expensive given the apparent material cost.

Reviewer: Steve Garsino

I'm with Chas when I'm at about 98 % success. We chain the trap to a 18€ by 3/4€ rebar to prevent raptors and large dogs from stealing the trap. Works very well saving return trips saving labor. Also I don't have a poison to report. Thanks for a great design!
5/5 Gophinator is the best, 07/14/2018
Reviewer: Chas
Company: Back Yard Battler
I've tried many brands and styles but this trap is the best on all counts. It's durable, lethal, and resists corrosion. I learned of gophinator from a neighbor, borrowed his traps, and attempted to purchase from the Menlo Park source. After three months the traps haven't arrived, my check hasn't cleared and my query wasn't answered. My order from Wildlife Control Supplies arrived immediately. Most traps of this style are triggered by a plate which releases spring-loaded hooks when disturbed. My major problem with exploiting tunnels is backfilling - the rodent pushes sand or soil, completely filling my excavation and packing it against its cover. The trap closes, triggered by dirt and not the gopher. The gophinator does not use a plate and so dirt can be pushed through it until the gopher itself triggers the trap and is caught. This trap doesn't puncture the gopher, but tightly grabs and asphyxiates it. With a twist of the spring the corpse drops from the trap. There is no unpleasant extraction from barbed hooks. I've found that gophers cut the string or leather cord used to secure the trap. I lost one and now secure them with wire. I suggest a mix of gopher and mole traps for gophers - gophinator for tunnels and moleinator for little pop-up holes.
