Any gopher control Rosemead California needs is from the pocket gopher that is the exact same as a gopher. A large amount of damages will be to new plants because young, un-established and it will not take a whole lot gnawing for a gopher to destroy or consume it. Lawn can be highly effected by gophers with destruction from both feeding on the grass along with the soil shoved at the top as well as residing on top of the lawn which in turn smothers it.

Giant trees can take gnawing for a while so don’t worry. Smaller trees can be killed by a gopher quickly since the roots offering the life to the tree are immature. You will see particular branches of trees or bushes continue to die when gophers are harming them. This is the result of the roots providing life for that area of the plant is impaired or killed by your gopher and no longer providing 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 normally stuffed wth dirt like in the picture above. This helps to differentiate them from other tunneling rodents like  moles.  They can make one to three mounds per day which is why you want to get rid of gophers immediately on your yard.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is typically done by a professional pest control company with background in how to eradicate gophers for your home.  Always ensure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not only a license for structural pest control.

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 probably will eatwll consume|like} it.  Most damage is to new vegetation because they are small, un-established and it does not} take much for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Grass is also highly effected by gophers with damage from both the eating of the lawn and the soil pushed on top and staying on the lawn which kills it.

Mature trees can take chewing for a while so not to worry.  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 begin to die off when gophers are attacking it.  This is caused by the roots supplying that part of the plant is damaged or killed by the gopher and no longer supplying nutrients to that part of the plant you are growing in.

The best 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 home owner can use with some success. Burrow Blasting is usually done by a service dedicated to gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of the cost of the equipment.

Burrow fumigants are extremely effective but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed professionals like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the flares from the nursery 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 technique to use for each situation and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective removal of gophers.

Using water to force them to surface 

Flooding can be effective on farms where the whole field is flooded and there is nowhere for a gopher to escape.  On your property you are going to try to flood the gopher with a water holse in the hole.  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 begin to panic about the cost of water in Rosemead and shut off the water off.

Repellers 

No repellents in Rosemead 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 protection, but these claims have never been authenticated.   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 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 fixing 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.
