We had an infestation of gophers two years ago. Managed to kill them off with a few cyanide pellets in peanut butter in a little paper pill cup. Stuck it as far down the hole as I could reach. Then cover the hole. During that year, we probably had over 100 holes. For several months, it was an every morning ritual looking for new holes. We had a couple bundles of those marker flags on wires. I'd make a circuit on the Polaris, flagging the new holes. Then go back to the house and prepare the bait cups and go back to the marked holes. The next morning, I'd check the flags and, see if the dirt and rocks were still in the holes. Pull the flags, then search for new ones to flag. Eventually, no new holes appeared. When the Ravens detected the carrion and, started congregating in that area, I knew the cyanide had worked.
