I live in Northern California (Sonoma County) in an area with excessive gopher and mole populations. The soil is sandy loam. My little terrier is a pretty good hunter, but I think I would need 25 of her living on the property at all times. One challenge is that the orchards and vineyards next-door tend to rototill, which sends more gophers my way; I also fear if someone starts poisoning the gophers, and if my terrier happens upon on of them.
Being that the problem is the solution...anyone have ideas?
Thanks!
