Love Apple doesn't fool around when it comes to gopher control. We only use the best. And the best farmer for the job is Thomas Wittman. He is our go-to gopher expert and will be teaching our gardening students this essential skill.
Thomas started his gopher career as an organic farmer in 1982. He trapped gophers daily for over twenty years and founded a non-toxic, wildlife damage control company, Gophers Limited. He has been a consultant and lecturer on rodent problems since 1991.
Thomas gives an intensive 4-hour workshop on eliminating not only gophers from your garden, but moles and voles as well. His business has had great success training farmers and gardeners on how to control these destructive pests without the use of poisons.
The seminar will consist of a morning trap setting session, a Power Point lecture on basic problem-animal biology focusing on behaviors and mannerisms that lead to effective trapping or control. The lecture will also include attracting predators, using sprays and drenches, different fencing and barrier options, various organically-approved pyrotechnic processes and several trapping methods. After the lecture, the group returns to the trapping site set up earlier and traps are checked, reset and new areas are set to demonstrate proper trapping techniques.
