There's a new thing going on up here and folks swear that if you stick some good old fashioned pink bubble gum or juicy fruit gum down the holes it will cause their intestines to gum up and the little devils expire without any harmful poisons. I can't say if it works or not cause I haven't used it. The method will not work on longhorn calves.
I know there's a lot of guys using the gum theory in areas near me that are saturated with gophers and they seem to figure it works but I can't say. Our ag office recomends it as a less offensive method than poison. I've found that the little demons seem to settle in areas where the grass is quite short, overgrazing or drought usually bring them on in greater numbers. There's always a certain population but it seems that short grass areas brings on an increase in their numbers.
