Re: gophers

I tried all that in Santa Barbara. For me trapping was very easy but the are rodents and screw like hell. Solution, move to Hawaii. We don't have gophers. No I just need to deal with the mongoose.

Re: help! Is this Bunchy Top Virus???

I agree with Gabe. Good luck contacting Andy at Aloha Tropicals. He takes your money and then disappears! A few of us have had no response from him in the past.
