What is Gopher Scram?

“A Green Solution to Gopher Damage”

Gopher Scram is a blend of castor and other natural oils in granular form, which is sprinkled on the ground and then watered to activate the repellent. Gopher Scram contains only natural and organic products and is fully biodegradable. It can be used in organic gardens and is also safe for use around children and pets. Gopher Scram is unique in its two-pronged approach to driving gophers away quickly, using Bad Taste and Strong Smell.

Bad Taste

Castor oil is a vegetable oil that is well known for its effectiveness at driving away gophers and moles. Gopher Scram uses castor oil in higher concentrations than most repellents for greater effectiveness. The castor oil is activated by watering or by rainfall. The water draws the oil into the soil where it coats grass roots, sedges and other edible garden plants. When a gopher eats these things, they taste bad and they are uncomfortable to digest. Gophers will quickly seek other areas for their burrowing activity where the vegetation is more palatable and agreeable.

Strong Smell

While most gopher repellents stick to the one active ingredient of castor oil, America’s Finest™ brand of repellents always use multiple repelling methods in each granular formula. In this case, Gopher Scram contains other natural oils that introduce strong, unpleasant odors in the soil and in their tunnels. This combined approach to driving gophers away has been proven to work quickly and effectively.

Two Convenient Sizes

Gopher Scram comes in two sizes. Our 3½ pound shaker container will protect up to 2,100 square feet (about 1 pound for every 600 square feet)! Our 10 pound bag will cover up to 6,000 square feet. It comes with a scoop for spreading, but if you prefer to use a spreader, we provide a handy “Spreader Settings” guide for the most commonly owned rotary spreaders. It is recommended that you apply Gopher Scram twice. Once, when you first notice gopher activity, and then again in two weeks to assure that the gophers have left the area.
