ATV Gopher Killer
"I use the exhaust from an ATV engine to kill gophers in their tunnels. I've got a system that includes a couple tools to make the job easy," says Layman Morrison, Camp Verde, Ariz.
"I use a 2-ft. long T-handled probe to find the tunnel and dig a hole into it with a digger pipe that's got serrated, sharpened teeth and a side opening to remove the dirt. Then I slip an adaptor over the exhaust pipe on the ATV and push the gas pipe down into the tunnel.
"The average mound takes about 3 min. time to gas. Old ones with long tunnels take longer but I usually try to get the gopher as soon as a new mound shows up. The carbon monoxide kills all the gophers in a run, young and all. I use my ATV because it's easy to get from one mound to another."
