A gopher control Hawaiaan Gardens California needs is from the pocket gopher that is exactly the same thing as a gopher. Almost all damage will be to new plants since they are immature, un-established and it does not require a great deal gnawing for that gopher to eliminate or consume it. Turf is also seriously effected by gophers with damage from both eating from the turf as well as the dirt moved at the top and residing on the lawn which often smothers it.

Big trees normally takes eating for a little bit so don’t worry. Smaller trees might be killed because of a gopher quickly because of the roots supplying the life to the tree are immature. You discover particular limbs of trees or bushes start to die off any time gophers are harming them. This is due to the roots issuing life to that section of the plant is weakened or destroyed by the gopher and no longer supplying life to that section of the plant you are growing.

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 tell them apart from other tunneling rodents like  voles.  They can create 1-3 mounds per day which is why you want to eradicate gophers right away on your yard.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is commonly done by a gopher specialist pest control company with knowledge of how to remove 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.

Damage and why we need Removal

Gophers eat plants, roots of trees, 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 vegetation because they are young, un-established and it doesn’tdoes not} take much for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Lawn is also very effected by gophers with destruction from both the eating of the lawn and the dirt pushed up and sitting on the turf which kills it.

Mature trees can take gnawing for a while so not to worry.  Smaller trees can be destroyed by a gopher in a short time because the root system supplying the nutrients to the tree are young.  You will notice certain branches of trees or bushes begin to dry out when gophers are damaging 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 life to that part of the plant 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 techniques that a home owner can use with limited success. Burrow Blasting is typically done by a company dedicated to gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the expense of the machine.

Burrow fumigants are extremely effective but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed experts like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the smoke bombs from the Lowes which are seldom successful.

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 situation and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective control of gophers.

Using water to wash them out 

Flooding can work 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 water holse in the hole.  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 begin to worry about the cost of water in Hawaiaan Gardens and shut it off.

Repellent 

There are no repellents in Hawaiaan Gardens 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 no one would be reading this site including you.

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

Above ground flower beds can be protected by attaching 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.
