pocket gopher, Rodentia Geomyidae – a burrowing
rodent that wreaks havoc to lawns and gardens. Although
rarely seen, a gopher reveals its presence through
the unsightly mounds that not only ruin the appearance
of smooth terrain, but cause damage to orchard and
vegetable crops. These mounds are made from the dirt
loosened by the rodent as it creates tunnels underground.
Gophers do not hibernate; they can be active at any
time of day, all year round and, in prime conditions,
can dig in all weather, even snow.
Macabee Gopher Trap is known to be the most effective
means of gopher control in the Western United States.
Ideal for both the large-scale farmer and the casual
gardener, this unique steel-wire, spring-action trap
gets rid of this harmful, burrowing rodent. It has
been copied, but never equaled. Easy to set, this
trap requires no bait and lasts for an unlimited number
of kills. Safer and proven more effective than gases
or poisons, each trap is inspected, set and adjusted
to ensure operational perfection. The same expert
design used since 1900 shows that Macabee is, indeed,
the “Old Reliable”.
