Carriemiller1213 from Ca writes,

Gophers, will this get rid of them without harming??

Hello; I am trying to humanely rid my yard of a gopher. I don't want to kill him, just make him leave. A friend told me to use this product He stated they hate it and will leave Can you please tell me if this is correct and safe??


Hi-Yield 38-Plus Insect Control - 38% Permethrin is an insecticide. This will not be effective for gophers. We would recommend using a repellent, such as Holy Moley Organic Mole Repellent. It is labeled for gophers, as well as various other burrowing animals. This concentrated formula repels animals through taste and smell by granules with castor oil as the active ingredient. Holy Moley can be applied with a standard broadcast spreader and is effective for up to six weeks.
