Destruction and reasons we need Removal
Gophers consume plants, tree roots, flowers and vegetables on your yard – if it’s a plant they probably will eatwll consume|like} it. Most damage is to new vegetation because they are young, un-established and it does not} take much for a gopher to destroy or eat it.

Big trees can take chewing for a while so not to worry. Smaller trees can be destroyed by a gopher right away because the roots supplying the life to the tree are young.

The best control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, baiting, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are methods that a property owner can use with some success. Burrow Blasting is typically operated by a service dedicated to gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the cost of the machine.
Burrow fumigants are extremely useful but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed pros like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the flares from the Lowes which are seldom successful.
Poison baits used by agriculture pest control companies 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 method to use for each situation and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective removal of gophers.
Using water to force them out
Flooding can be effective on farms where the entire field is flooded and there is nowhere for a gopher to go. On your property you are going to try 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 cost of water in Tujunga and shut off the water off.
No repellents in Tujunga 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 protection, but these claims have never been authenticated. 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 perimeter of your backyard would cost too much. Plus this would at best only give short-term control. Eventually gophers find a way in.
Above ground planter beds can be protected by attaching 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.
