My Grandfather (a "real" farmer, not like myself) used to run the exhaust from his tractor tailpipe into the gopher holes to gas them and he said it worked well. Now, I see there are several variations of this concept for sale online, most at ridicules prices.The simple (least expensive) ones use a small engine motor with a heat resistant hose that runs into the gopher tunnels. The most expensive variations (several thousand dollars) use larger motors and compress the exhaust to inject into the gopher tunnels. If I have the time and can find an old small engine around here that still runs, I will consider building a "simple" version. Although, I don't envision me having the time. Maybe, if I had a tractor, I would rig up a hose from the exhaust to stick in the gopher tunnel. What could possibly go wrong?
