Two Santa Cruz bobcat deaths linked to rat poison
The Cinch Gopher and mole trap is what makes easy gopher and mole trapping possible. There is no other trap on the market as effective! Be sure to buy original Cinch traps made in the USA. The copies made in China do not have the same action or quality nor do they support our economy. The kits I sell have everything you need to be a successful gopher or mole trapper. If you are not successful I will coach you by phone until you are. I train individuals, city and county maintenance workers, farm and vineyard workers, landscapers anyone who needs to control gophers and moles without poisons!

Purchased a dozen of your traps and am very pleased!! In the last month we have trapped over 20 gophers, it’s really starting to make a noticeable difference, we will finally have a nice lawn this summer. We had tried peppermint oil, instant mashed potatoes, hot peppers and nothing worked. Had to be concerned about our dogs and cats. This is the trick!! Thanks, Joy from Malibu, CA
The last time I gave an update was a year ago. Since then I have continued
to do my best to control the gopher problem in my 1.5 acre yard. My
neighbors and passers by have commented on how wonderful my yard looks.
This always leads to a discussion about your traps and ultimately, me giving
them your web address. I know for certain that they have purchased your
traps and done wonders controlling their gopher invasion. Well today,
3/10/12, I reached another milestone. My 200th unlucky critter! Thanks
again from Oceanside, CA.! - Rick Orlando
Hi: I called yesterday to order some wires that I lost off one of your traps, and thanks for saying that you would mail me a couple…..But, I have to tell you that last week I caught 5 gophers in one day. Two within 15 minutes apart. I am so pleased with the cinch trap that I am now expanding my area outside of the garden and yard and into the orchard…I am anxiously awaiting more catches.

CO2 Gas Injector
The Gophers Limited CO2 gas injector is extremely effective for eliminating gophers and moles in flat areas like sod lawns, ball fields, green spaces and any area that is firm enough to trap the CO2 gas in a burrow system. We have used this device for gophers, moles and ground squirrels with success. The injector consists of a quality CO2 regulator, 25' of a special hose that resists stiffening while in use as the CO2 is a very cold gas as it expands from its liquid form. A shut off valve and a specially ported wand make applications easy. We open burrows with our Hori Hori knife, insert the wand, cover with soil to contain the gas and allow 30 seconds to a minute of flow at 5-10 lbs. Tank not included. We often use 5 LB tanks for hard to reach area and 10 lb tanks from a truck or tractor.
