Pocket gopher burrows are normally plugged like in the picture above. This helps to set them apart from other burrowing rodents like  voles.  They can create one to three mounds every day reason behind the fact of why you want to eliminate gophers right away on your yard.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is usually done by a professional pest control company with background in how to kill gophers for your house.  Always ensure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not just a structural license.

Damage and why we need Removal

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

Mature trees can take gnawing for a while so not to worry.  Smaller trees can be killed by a gopher right away because the roots supplying the nutrients to the tree are young.  You will see certain branches of trees or bushes begin to dry out when gophers are damaging 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 life to that part of the plant you are growing in.

The best 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 some success. Burrow Blasting is usually performed by a service serious about gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the expense of the blaster.

Burrow fumigants are extremely useful 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 hardware store which are seldom successful.

Poison baits available to agriculture pest control operators are much higher concentration 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 situation 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 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 down the hole.  The problem is the water typically never fills up the burrow and the gopher simply raises his nose above the water line until you begin to be concerned about the water bill in Montclair and shut it off.

Repellers 

There are no repellents in Montclair available at the present time that have been proved 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 yard 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 give short-term control. At some point gophers find a way in. 

Above ground planter beds can be protected by fixing 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.
