60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

A gopher control Azusa California needs is from the pocket gopher that is exactly the same as a gopher. A large amount of harm is almost always to new plants because they’re young, un-established plus it doesn’t take a great deal of gnawing for one gopher to eliminate or devour it. Lawn is additionally seriously effected by gophers with destruction from both eating of the grass plus the dirt forced on top along with staying on the lawn which unfortunately smothers it.

Giant trees will take chewing for a little bit so don’t worry. Smaller trees are usually killed by way of gopher quickly since the roots offering the life for the tree are young. You might find distinct branches of trees or bushes start to die out as soon as gophers are damaging them. This is caused by the roots giving life for that part of the plant is compromised or killed by the gopher and no longer supplying life to that section of the plant that you are raising.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are usually filled with dirt like in the picture above. This helps to set them apart from other burrowing rodents like  moles.  They can dig 1-3 mounds every day leading to why you want to get rid of gophers right away on your yard.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is commonly done by a qualified pest control company with background in how to eradicate gophers for your house.  Always ensure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not only a structural license.

Destruction and reasons we need Removal

Gophers eat plants, roots of trees, ornamental flowers and vegetables on your lawn – if it’s a plant they most likely will eatwll consume|like} it.  Most damage is to new plants because they are small, un-established and it doesn’tdoes not} take much for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Grass is also very effected by gophers with destruction from both the eating of the grass and the soil pushed on top and sitting on the grass which kills it.

Mature trees can take gnawing for a little bit so not to worry.  Smaller trees can be destroyed by a gopher right away because the root system supplying the life to the tree are young.  You will see certain branches of trees or bushes start to die off when gophers are eating it.  This is caused by the roots giving life to that part of the plant is damaged or killed by the gopher and no longer supplying nutrients to that part of the tree you are growing in.

The best control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, poison, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are options that a home owner can use with limited success. Burrow Blasting is usually done by a service dedicated to gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of the expense of the machine.

Burrow fumigants are very effective but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed pros like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the flares from the tools store which are not very effective.

Poison baits available to agriculture pest control companies are much higher strength and effective than what is obtainable to a homeowner.  The main reason to hire a gopher expert is the experience of what method to use for each property and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective control of gophers.

Using water to wash them to surface 

Flooding can be effective on farms where the entire field is flooded and there is nowhere for a gopher to escape.  On your property you are going to attempt to flood the gopher with a garden hose in the opening.  The problem is the water typically never fills up the burrow and the gopher simply raises his nose above the water line until you start to worry about the water bill in Azusa and shut off the water off.

Repellers 

No repellents in Azusa available at the present time that have been shown to provide good Gopher Control. Several plants, such as gopher purge and cantor bean have been said to offer protection, but these claims have never been proved.   If they really worked to get rid of gophers no one would be reading this site including you.

Keep gophers out of your garden using physical barriers can be effective for small areas. Any large project, such as placing fencing around the area of your backyard would cost too much. Plus this would at best only provide short-term control. Eventually gophers find a way in. 

Raised flower beds can be protected by attaching a 1/4 inch galvanized hardware cloth below the bed and securing it to the 2×6 wood frame prior to adding soil in your yard.

Calif DFG position 

 When gophers are causing damage to you Azusa property, they are allowed to be controled by all allowable method. Allowable ways can include gopher traps and poison bait placed by the owner or tenant of the property. Any poison bait used to kill gophers must be labeld for gophers on the product label and follow the instructions carefully.
