A Beautiful Way To Start A Day
I cannot over-emphasize the importance of taking immediate action when the first gopher-damage is spotted. I saw damage this morning, found the tunnel, set the trap, and had the bugger dead in less than an hour.
It had dug under this rose:
Gophers find the root systems of roses delicious. Thankfully quick action means this rose still has most of its root system.
Your mild-mannered blogger, who turns into Darth Vader where gophers are concerned.
O what a beautiful morning it is when a gopher dies. Because a rose lives!
