This is a bit of comic relief, but I suppose may be an effective method for those looking for an answer to a gopher problem. I have fallen into unexpected holes in the past, so I know what a pest gophers can be. This looks like fun and a bit dangerous if you are ignorant of how to properly use it.
I would imagine if you build your container home on some pier posts at the edge of a river bank or some other precarious setting, you wouldn’t want a gopher to burrow into the dirt holding up your foundation! Or even if you are fully sustaining yourself or your family with homegrown vegetables, you wouldn’t want to starve because of the freeloading burrowers, this is your answer! No chemicals or poisons. A little steep in price, but it all depends what your alternatives are. Get one of these and have a blast… literally!
