Ok, so last week I saw a suspicious mound on the ditch bank, but there is always something interesting out there. I didn't do anything about it. First mistake. A couple of days later I saw another further down and STILL I didn't act because, well I don't know why. Live and let live attitude? Anyway, on day three, I told my partner and after some discussion, we decided to put the hose down one of the tunnels. First we dug into the mound to find a tunnel and found one! I decided to also run the ditch water just in case the little monster was at a higher level (figuratively and literally). So with the water soaking the soil from underneath, the area was boggy. Next day, OMG....the tunnel was filled with dirt! I haven't seen any NEW mounds but...long story, short question, WHAT to do about Gophers? We are on 1/3 acre. Oh, and while you are at it, how do they appear out of nowhere? I''ve checked around the area and there are no mounds in any of our neighbors areas and no mounds further down the ditch. Amazing.
