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.

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

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.

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!

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.
