Caddyshack...remember Bill Murray


Do you remember this movie, Caddyshack?  The epic battle against gophers... 
What am I talking about?  My hubby is now staging his own epic battle against the gopher(s) that are burrowing around in our garden. The evil little rodent is busy eating the plants by the root and then pulling the plant down his hole to eat the entire thing. The leeks and garlic are nearly all gone, and other plants have also been attacked. What has hubby done to get rid of the gophers?  His main method is to trap, however, it has been several days, and the gopher is still eating new things daily. He had to pull out the arsenal of other stuff that some people use instead of traps....poison bait placed in the underground tunnels. This is the last resort............if only we had a gopher snake to put down the holes.
