Thanks, KT, good to know it's available (if I want to spend $3220 on gopher removal). I'm looking forward to the larger version, the Neighborator.

Murph, where are those pictures? And would you explain how the bookmark options at the bottom of the postings work?

 Burrowing animals a problem

If you look directly under each persons avatar there is a little icon of a camera and the word "pics" in light blue. Clicking on that will take you to the persons profile, their pictures are at the bottom of that page.

The link function allows you to insert the URL for something you (like Kenny did) are referring to in a post. As an example, you are asking about one of my pictures that I mentioned. By inserting the URL of it, I can insert a smaller copy of it into this post as below, and if you click on it it will take you to the full-sized image directly.

To do that all I did was copy & paste the URL link to it into the box "Picture / Image URL" in the posting form.

Best of luck.

Ken, was it you or Iowa fun who had problems with gophers?

auerbach, understand.

It does not seem it would be hard to come up with your own set up giving you the same results. The method to provide the spark would be where I stumbel but would want to be further away that the guy in the video. Maybe the striker from a grill? Also, how much gas is safe in yard a few feet from house?

We have gophers and ground squirrels but I don't worry about them. No finished landscape to screw up Smile

Now, the bats in the attic are another story... but I wouldn't want to try that rodenator thing in the attic Wink yeah right

The problem is that you need to inject the propane already mixed into the correct ratio of fuel to air to obtain the proper (stoichiometric) mixture that it will ignite properly and burn completely.

If you have too much air or fuel it won't do much at all.

In my case the solution is already well mixed (scrambled?) and very much a self-igniting and self-inserting solution. Laughing out loud

I had a squirrel who decide the attic was a good place to over-winter one year. I put one of the dogs up the access ladder while the 'little lady' stood watch outside to see it if it came out the hole in the gable end it had chewed. It did.

She said it did a flat-out sprint right out the hole (~26' up) and into a swan dive. He did not walk away from that landing! He was DOA. Wink yeah right

Best of luck.

Not sure which would be worse but how about Rap Music playing in the attic? It was only a few years ago I learned bats can create a real health problem being in the attic. I seldom see them. Even put up a bat house and still no bats.

Murf, a few years ago I pulled a dozen squirrels out of the attic using live traps. Two adults (momma and poppa) and ten babies. I found where those were coming from and plugged the holes with copper wool.

Now the bats... Years ago they were roosting in a small gap between the gutter and fascia boards. I chased them out with a hose, cleaned up the mess, stuffed copper wool to block them off, and erected a 24 foot high bat house a hundred feet from the main house. Five years later, the bat house is empty and bats are in the attic. We have lights in all areas of the attic so I turned them all on, but the bats didn't blink. So I'm calling a pro. Apparently they have these little gizmos that will home in on their radar at dusk so they can find out where they are coming and going. This will be interesting to watch.
