The Crittergetter is not your typical gopher control product. It applies an unconventional approach involving the use of engine exhaust from a car, truck, tractor, mower, ATV, or nearly any other type of combustion engine. "Sometimes you need to think outside the box" States Chris Klimen the Crittergetter creator, "these critters live inside of a burrow. That burrow is a confined space. The Crittergetter fills that confined space with a toxic gas that puts those pests to sleep, painlessly and permanently."
The Crittergetter is the only proactive gopher control product available. When applied properly, the burrow system of the gopher is no match for the Crittergetter because its use of high pressure exhaust makes it singularly capable of reaching the farthest reaches of any burrow. Nearly every other product on the market relies on an action from the gopher to be effective; the Crittergetter takes the action to these merciless pests. Use the Crittergetter for your gopher control needs and "bring the business" to your gophers, before your gophers give the business to you.
Not a gopher? Have other critter issues in addition to gophers? Not a problem. The Crittergetter is the lone product available where it dosen´t matter what type of critter you need to get rid of... the results are always the same; the Crittergetter turns the entire burrow into a toxic environment, regardless of the critter type.
Our use of engine exhaust for gopher extermination is not a new idea. Savvy Farmers and Landowners throughout the U.S. have been successfully using engine exhaust and a far from perfected, inefficient mish-mash of incompatible parts, as an abatement technique for decades. The Crittergetter simply provides a properly constructed tool, made of the appropriately sized parts, to efficiently and effectively use this technique in one easy to use kit.
We have two versions of the Crittergetter: The Original and The Homeowner. The Original Crittergetter hose is constructed of very heavy gage 3-Ply Polyester Yarns, is tough enough to be driven over by a car on a rocky surface without being damaged, and was created with the intent of withstanding continuous vigorous use. For those who do not require the industrial strength and durability of the Original, we have the Homeowner Crittergetter. By forming a union between the Original Crittergetter hose and our lightweight plastic hose we can offer a product that is better suited to the lawn and garden user.
