A gopher control Azusa California needs is from the pocket gopher which is exactly the same thing as a gopher. A large amount of harm will be to new plants being that they are young, un-established and so it would not require very much gnawing for one gopher to destroy or devour it. Grass is highly effected by gophers with damages from both feeding on from the lawn and the dirt forced at the top and staying on the turf which in turn smothers it.

Giant trees can take nibbling for a while so no worries. Smaller trees can be destroyed by way of a gopher right away because roots supplying the life to your tree are immature. You discover distinct branches of trees or bushes begin to die off whenever gophers are destroying it. This is due to the roots supplying life for that section of the plant is weakened or killed by your gopher and no longer supplying life to that part of the plant that you are raising.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are normally filled with dirt like in the picture above. This helps to differentiate them from other burrowing rodents like  moles.  They can dig 1-3 mounds a day reason behind the fact of why you want to eradicate gophers immediately on your landscape.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is commonly done by a professional pest control company with experience with how to eradicate gophers for your yard.  Always check that they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not merely a structural license.

Damage and reasons we need Removal

Gophers eat plants, tree roots, ornamental flowers and vegetables on your garden – 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 does not} take much for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Lawn is also highly effected by gophers with damage from both the eating of the turf and the soil pushed on top and staying on the lawn which smothers it.

Big trees can take chewing for a while so not to panic.  Smaller trees can be destroyed by a gopher in a short time because the roots supplying the nutrients to the tree are undeveloped.  You will notice certain branches of trees or bushes start to die off when gophers are damaging it.  This is caused by the roots supplying that part of the plant is damaged or killed by the gopher and no longer supplying life to that part of the plant you are growing in.

The common control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, bait, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are techniques that a home owner can use with limited success. Burrow Blasting is typically performed by a company serious about gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the cost of the equipment.

Burrow fumigants are extremely effective but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed techs like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the flares from the plant store which are seldom successful.

Poison baits used by agriculture pest control professionals are much higher concentration and effective than what is obtainable to a homeowner.  The main reason to hire a gopher expert is the knowledge of what technique to use for each situation and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective removal of gophers.

Using water to wash them out 

Flooding can be effective on farms where the entire crop area is flooded and there is nowhere for a gopher to go.  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 tunnel system and the gopher simply raises his head above the water line until you start to think about about the water bill in Azusa and shut it off.

Repellent 

No repellents in Azusa available at the present time that have been shown to provide good Gopher Extermination. Several plants, such as gopher purge and cantor bean have been said to offer relief, but these claims have never been authenticated.   If they really worked to get rid of gophers you would not be reading this site.

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

Above ground flower beds can be protected by placing 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

Allowable methods 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.
