Living in area between new construction, and open space has meant an ongoing and unending siege of gophers. Have tried many other repellant brands; noisemakers, water, garlic, traps, and baits. Nothing worked for more than one treatment as gophers would learn to avoid. After much discouragement, I found these repellant granuals at domyownpest.com. Product was delivered promptly, and to my surprise it has greatly discouraged damage from gophers. It's been about 3 weeks, still no new damage in treated areas! (They moved to area in yard where I neglected to apply).
Only reason I gave review 4 stars and not five is because this does nothing to reduce/kill existing populations of gophers, only "discourages" them by smell/taste. But this repellent has worked the best of others I've ever tried. Went from 20-80 new mounds a week to only 2-3. That's a vast improvement in my book. If you're trying to totally eliminate gophers, you'll need to use traps or bait. (I however have new had much luck with those as smart gophers learn to foul traps with dirt rendering them useless; and become a bit shy).
I recommend this product highly, even though it doesn't kill the gophers. Probably the best choice if you have kids or pets. As always read label for directions/limitations.
