Moles or gophers I use medium cinch traps.

Use those orange driveway markers/poles behind the trap as there easy to see and to keep them from pushing it out of the hole.

Very very simple to set.

I've used the cinch traps before with good success. The ones I have actually sit in the tunnel, they don't have the large plate like the ones in the video. I've killed more moles with 4 traps than a professional mole removal company with 15 traps on the same property. Part of it is I was on the property every week adjusting them when the other company just set them every couple of weeks.

Correct Gopher or mole I trap the same, nothing very tricky and minimal digging. I also shove mine back into the groud after a kill. They run about $10 a trap. If you have no activity in 24 hours move them. Caught them all with 5 traps checked daily.
Well worth the price as I've used them a lot without issues. I always do hours of research online and this was the best option

Nothing so far. The owners think they are cute, I sure don't. I'm mowing dirt and messing my blades up when I fall in the tunnels. I'm going to talk them into this... I hope.
