Questions & Answers


The photo shows three traps is that correct? It's $43 for three traps or one? Thanks

Asked by Al August 23, 2019

Three for $43,

How many medium size traps come in a kit?

Asked by Tony November 2, 2017

This is for one trap.

Is this safe to have in a yard with kids and dogs?

Asked by Katie April 7, 2017

As a pro trapper... if there are dogs & cats or even kids. I put a clothes basket over the trap.this will keep the dogs out and tell the kids to stay away.

Can I just insert this into a gopher hole (without opening up the hole)?

Asked by Frank September 14, 2015

I don't think so unless it's already a big hole. A Hora Hora works great at opening up the hole a bit. The 3 inch means a 3" hole.

I have 2 large and 1 small trap. Will be buying 2 medium traps soon. After 3 weeks ive killed 14 of them,13 with the large traps and 1 with the small trap. My yard was bad but after 9 i stopped seeing fresh mounds in my yard,so now im fighting the battle in my neighbors yard.will rid my area of them this year. Even got a coworker ordering them now,hes tried all the other tricks but no luck.

Best overall size of trap
I now have quite the collection of medium cinch traps. These tend to fit most holes and I've had quite a lot of success with them. The trick seems to be setting as many traps around the active areas as possible. If your holes get backfilled, try to find where it opens up again or look for fresh gopher dirt piles to set in. I'd rather set 5 in the same area than try my luck with 5 scattered around the property.

Best gopher trap in the world!!!!!
Got two gopher the first night I placed trap. The cinch trap is better that other traps because it worked the first time. No more gophers since. The word is out among the gopher community to stay away from my yard...THE CINCH GOPHER TRAP WAS A CINCH TO SET.
