These flies seem to have a direct relation to the gopher, as experiments have shown that the side that they come from is the one occupied at that time by the gopher and hence the place to set the trap. Traps should be visited morning and evening, or oftener. Special Sets Individual gophers will frequently be found that refuse to enter any sort of trap. These gophers are generally old males and are likely to be the ones that do most of the gnawing on fruit trees. When one of these old-timers repeatedly fills the trap with dirt, a special method becomes necessary to catch him. Moles also may be captured in this way. Take a Macabee trap (fig. 3a) and move the treadle forward about an inch and a half, placing the wire which carries the treadle below, instead of above, the two longitudinal wires. Cut off the wire trigger to meet this change (fig. 3b). Then bend the treadle backwards at right angles to its former position (fig. 4) so that it will lie parallel with the trap (fig. 4c), instead of sticking up at right angles and obstructing the runway (as in fig. 4b). Set the trap so that it will spring easily. Put a pinch of loose cotton under the treadle to keep the dirt out, and when the trap has been placed in the run take a stick and cover the whole trap with a thin layer of loose dirt. Another method is to take a recently caught female and rub the reproductive parts on the face of the treadle of the regular Macabee trap. A few drops of urine may be squeezed out during the process, but this only adds to the efficacy of the decoy. If all else fails catch a gopher snake and turn him loose in the run.
