When you see gopher holes popping up in your yard, you'll want to have one of these on hand. The Victor Black Box Gopher Trap effectively kills gophers without the use of chemicals or poisons. The chocker loop-style trap features weather-resistant plastic and galvanized steel construction for superior strength and durability. Additionally, each trap is easy to use thanks to its EASY-SET design. The trap come fully assembled and with illustrated operating instructions on setting and placement. As the most effective gopher trap on the market, you can rest assured that your yard is safe from the damaging effects of gophers. Gopher trapping can be done at any time of year, but generally is easiest and most effective during Spring and Fall. Once gopher activity is detected it is important to move quickly as pregnant females can be caught before giving birth to her family. Traps are most effective when properly placed in the gopher tunnel to snare the unsuspecting gopher in the spring-triggered loop. The hole should be covered up with dirt so that it appears as if the trap is part of the runway. When used correctly, traps produce a catch within 48 hours. It is best to move the trap to another location in the runway if you do not catch a gopher in this timeframe.

Questions & Answers

Can you catch moles with this trap or only gophers?

Asked by: IamaVirus
We currently don't have a mole problem. Email Victor and ask a professional.

What do I use for bate for a gopper?

Asked by: AM427
No bait necessary. You just need to find one of the main tunnels that the gophers use, dig it out enough to place the unit in the path.

Can you catch multiple gophers/moles in one box at one time? Or do you need to remove before catching another?

Asked by: sickofgohpers
You can only catch one at at time. For gophers, there should only be 1 gopher per tunnel area. They area solitary creatures. You will need to remove the dead gopher before you re--cock the trap and set it up in another tunnel system.

BlackBox Gopher Trap is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 115.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Black Box Gopher trap worked on the first try, first night. Gone one large Gopher which I don't think would have fit in the smaller traps. First I basically rubbed the dirt from the access hole I dug all over the Trap until it smelled like dirt to me. Remember you need space above the trap for the spring wire to pop up. Try not to set the trap until it is in the hole, if you bump the trap when placing it in the whole it can easily go off. I used a 3/4 inch slice from a 1 1/4 inch diameter cucumber for bait (the one in the picture was green). I flexed the wire trigger a little open and skewered the cucumber slice on to it. Then slid it around on the wire until it was on the top vertical section of the trigger wire. The extra weight on the trigger makes it more sensitive so be careful setting it. This also made it impossible for the Gopher to get to the bait without entering the trap and made the bait impossible to move without setting the trigger off. This is a very strong spring trap which deals the death blow quickly and cleanly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from TORTURED - Gopher Caught By FOOT Only. I get that this trap “caught” the gopher I was after but it’s supposed to be a HUMANE trap. I’ve used the Black Box before and it usually works as an immediate kill trap but I had no idea that a gopher could trip it without going fully in. I’m not sure what happened this time but the gopher I just caught suffered immensely before dying (i.e. before I had to drown it). Good job Victor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Have tried everything and this did the job I have tried sonic spikes, gassers and various repellents- it didn't work. Poison was not an option due to our dogs. The black box has a very easy trap to set up, but make sure you follow directions, find a tunnel they use to travel and you will catch your gopher(s). I tried placing the trap at an opening I dug up, but they just filled in the trap's entrance with dirt, but if you find a travel tunnel and use two traps (facing opposite ways) you will catch the gopher(s). I have caught two since early-May, with the first one being minutes from the time I set the unit up correctly. Pros- Will solve your gopher problem Cons- Probably the hardest way to control your gopher issue (I live in sandy soil so it is a little bit more of a challenge to locate the tunnels (without collapse), more pricier (twice the price) than other traps (but easier to install), The box is rather bulky compared to other traps but the gopher cannot run away with it (you don't need to tie it down like other gopher traps I've seen)..

I paid a guy to get the gopher and he used one of these. Said they're the best but it didn't help and he never came back. So I bought one and tried to use it but I'm a single female and wasn't able to spring the trap so I returned it.

This thing is lethal!I noticed mounds in my back yard early Saturday morning, fond the path/tunnel, followed the instructions, and by 2pm that afternoon, I had a mole, a good size one at that, in the trap. Cleared the trap, and left it in the hole for 3 more days, and nothing.
