Effective pocket gopher management
My yard is a pocket gopher's delight, or at least it was. Now that I have been using JT Eatons gopher bait blocks over the past year I have seen a dramatic decrease in gopher activity. I still have a long way to go but am confident over time that I will be able to effective manage my gopher population.
