Re: A Gopher in Your Garden

I was so upset by the Gophers last season I thought of many things. I did buy those sound sticks that beep and do not work at all. The gophers burrow right up to them and check them out. This year I dug up all 15 of my beds and put down Hardware cloth. ( also changed the whole garden to drip at the same time) My other thought was to build an owl house but decided to get chickens this year so discarded that idea. My last idea if the hardware cloth does not work is I will get a few Gopher snakes and lead them down the fresh gopher wholes. Provided Gopher snakes don't bite people. (I have little kids). For now I will see how the hardware cloth goes and get back to this post in August. Cross your fingers....
