I've been having a problem with gophers destroying my garden for two years. I thought I had it solved by disking very deep several times but the sob's are back. My dog tries to dig them out but that just destroys more of the garden.

I need a tested method of killing these bastards.

Yes I use poison. My dog digs the hole out and I drop in poison pellets, lightly cover it over and the gopher eats the stuff up.

i agree, your likely talking about pocket gophers. skim the mound away until you see the hole. pour poisoned corn in the hole and cover up again. also hook up a hose over your exhaust on your car. put the free end in the hole and run the engine for a while. ive tried to drown them but that dont work so good. their is also a type of trap that is long and slim that fits in the hole that works good also. they are presistant little bastards. just be more presistant.  also their is a fun device called a rodentator  that will give you a laugh a minute but really is the best of them all for getting rid of them. go to you tube and look at it. it pumps a mixture of propane and oxygen into the tunnel and then you push a button and it is ignited  and they are burned alive as well a blown to bits. works on anything that digs holes and lives in the tunnels. if you use your own cutting torch set up be careful when you set it off, use a long stick with a flame on the end of it.  dont be standing over a tunnel, or you will  be doing a fancy dance.
