Following a relatively wet season, vs. years of drought, we are now experiencing a gopher invasion (the Carlsbad area is offering $6 bounty, with just the tail being sufficient proof).
Anyway, I'm gonna gas them critters with Foz exhaust from one tailpipe, via a 2-½" flex hose stuffed into a burrow, while plugging the other exhaust pipe. Assuming running at idle for about 10-20 minutes, does anyone know if I might be killing the Foz vs. the gophers?
BTW, I've already tried drowning, ammonia, bleach (or both, to produce deadly gas), all to no effect. I now have renewed respect for the survival talent of gophers, but gopher traps will be the last resort.
BTW#2: we're on 3 acres, and have lived with gophers and other critters for many years, but this particular invasion is only a few feet from the house, near cable, water, and electrical lines.
