GOPHER TRAPPING — Will you tell me through the magazine how to kill and trap gophers in quantities?
I cannot tell you any method of killing gophers in quantities, and I am not sure that you really mean pocket gophers, as there are several species of ground squirrels that are called gophers. The pocket gopher is easily trapped by setting either a small steel trap or one of various gopher traps now made, in the burrow. The special traps are no doubt best. You can also poison them by placing a few crystals of strychnine in a raisin, and placing these poisoned raisins in the burrows, near where the gopher has been working last. The U. S. Department of Agriculture, Washington, D. C., issues a pamphlet telling all about pocket gophers and how destroy them. It is known as Circular 52. No doubt your, own government sends out such literature.
