It always amuses me that the gopher sounds more like Flipper than a gopher.

It's a little known fact that the gopher did voice-over work on the Flipper series before he got his big break in Caddyshack

If argon was cheaper you'd be able to use it to flood out the burrows, it will fill from the bottom. Pure nitrogen might do the job. CO2 causes a response so dry ice wouldn't work to suffocate the little bastards.

I saw Caddyshack on TV and he clearly said everyone was going to get "paid", not laid.

I remember in college some guys, I'm pretty sure they were drunk, poured gasoline down a gopher hole in an attempt to burn it out. As you probably know this didn't end well, but it was funny watching the conclusion.

So, what IS the Farkispherian opinion on dealing with gophers?

Never had them before, but do now in newly purchased old house.

Seems they are crazy hard to get rid of and can chew through lots of beloved horticulture.

Gopher hole?

1. drop three smoke bombs down hole
2. quickly pour several gallons of wet cement down hole
3. watch for gophers leaving other holes
4. repeat

How to really get rid of a gopher as told to me many years ago by a wise Japanese gardner.

1. Get one of those wire spring gopher traps that really will kill the beast.
2. Attach a wire from the trap frame to a wooden stake - around 6" long or so. The wire should be around 3 feet long.
3. Wet the ground around the hole a bit and shove the loaded trap into the hole so the top of the trap is a few inches below ground level.
4. Take some Lemon tree leaves and shove them down the hole to the trap but be careful you do not spring the trap.
5. Pound the stake into the ground - this will prevent trap loss if the gopher is not completely dead and tries to take the trap underground.
6. Check back every day for disturbances around the hole. If they have occured, remove the trap with gopher attached.
7. Repeat the above steps till you knock off his entire family.

Why Lemon leaves? I don't know but it works as I have proven it from experience.

Oh, and please, no Baby Ruth bars in the pool.

Anyone else around here remember gopher service protocol for pulling up documents on the Intertubes? Dogpile? Archie - Veronica and Jughead? I used to write a lot of tcp/ip based apps for a telephone company using Berkley sockets back in the day. HTML was still in the 0.xx stage, the only graphical browser was Mosaic, and Bill Gates was still officially ignoring that Internet thingee the UNIX guys were raving about.

Except he was trying to get rid of squirrels. Do Milwaukee squirrels live in holes? All the squirrels I've ever seen have lived in trees.

Oh yeah, fond memories...those of us hamstrung with Windows (3.1!) had to fight with stuff like Netmanage Chameleon to even get ONTO the intertubes. As I recall, TU Delft had quite a collection of these things called "jpegs" that you could grab via gopher, but they were in multiple parts that had to be concatenated and reassembled (think uudecode). But worth the effort at the time.

This man gave me a good idea. I think I'll fire up some grass too.
