  • Martin's Gopher Bait 50 Strychnine
    By Bill Farris on 3/20/2017
    I've used many gopher baits, and repellants over 30 years and this is the best commercially purchased bait I have found. Only product better was acquired from local ag office 25 years ago , but that office has been closed for many years. Martin's, using strychnine, is very effective. I have just about used my 4 pound jug and am about to order another. This must be "the year of the gopher" in my area; they are extremely plentiful.

    Great We have about four acres so we ordered the four pound container. It has been very affective and we have the gopher problem well under control. Our neighbors have seen how well the product works and have asked for information on how to order. Thanks for a great product
