Any gopher control Cypress Ca needs is from the pocket gopher that is exactly the same as a gopher. Just about all damage will be to new plants because young, un-established plus it does not take a whole lot gnawing for a gopher to eliminate or eat it. Lawn is highly effected by gophers with damages from both consuming of the lawn as well as the soil moved on top as well as residing on top of the turf which often smothers it.

Giant trees normally takes nibbling for a while so not to worry. Smaller trees could be destroyed by the gopher promptly because roots offering the life for the tree are immature. You will quickly realize particular branches of trees or bushes start to die when ever gophers are destroying them. This is the result of the roots supplying life to that area of the plant is harmed or killed by the gopher and without any longer supplying life to that section of the plant you are raising.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are almost always filled with dirt like in the picture above. This helps to set them apart from other tunneling rodents like  ground squirrels.  They can dig 1-3 mounds per day which is why you want to eradicate gophers right away on your yard.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is normally done by a qualified pest control company with experience with how to kill gophers for your house.  Always make sure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not just a license for structural pest control.

Destruction and reasons we need Removal

Gophers consume plants, roots of trees, ornamental flowers and vegetables on your yard – if it’s a plant they most likely will eatwll consume|like} it.  Most damage is to new vegetation because they are small, un-established and it does not} take a lot for a gopher to destroy or eat it.  Grass is also highly effected by gophers with destruction from both the eating of the grass and the dirt pushed up and staying on the turf which smothers it.

Large trees can take chewing for a while so not to panic.  Smaller trees can be killed by a gopher in a short time because the roots supplying the life to the tree are undeveloped.  You will notice certain branches of trees or bushes begin to die off when gophers are eating them.  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 common control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, poison baiting, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are methods that a property owner can use with limited success. Burrow Blasting is usually performed by a service dedicated to gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the expense of the equipment.

Burrow fumigants are extremely useful but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed technicians like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the smoke bombs from the plant store which are not very effective.

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

Using water to wash them to surface 

Flooding can be effective on farms where the whole crop area 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 water holse in the opening.  The problem is the water usually never fills up the tunnel system and the gopher simply raises his head above the water line until you start to panic about the cost of water in Cypress and shut off the water off.

Repellers 

There are no repellents in Cypress 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 control, but these claims have never been proved.   If they really worked to get rid of gophers you would not be reading this site.

Keeping gophers out of your lawn using physical barriers can be effective for small projects. Any large project, such as placing fencing around the area of your backyard would be cost prohibitive. Plus this would at best only provide short-term control. At some point gophers find a way in. 

Raised planter beds can be protected by placing a 1/4 inch galvanized hardware cloth under the bed and securing it to the 2×6 wood frame before filling with soil in your yard.

Calif DFG position 

 When gophers are causing damage to you Cypress property, they are allowed to be controled by any legal means. 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 registered for gophers on the product label and follow the instructions carefully.
