A gopher control Cypress California needs is from the pocket gopher which is the exact same as a gopher. Just about all damages is almost always to new plants simply because they’re immature, un-established and so it does not require a lot gnawing for the gopher to destroy or feed on it. Turf is also seriously impacted by gophers with destruction from both the feeding of the grass and also the earth forced on top as well as residing on top of the lawn which usually smothers it.

Big trees will take nibbling for a while so no worries. Smaller trees are generally killed by the gopher right away considering that the roots supplying the life for your tree are young. You discover particular branches of trees or bushes begin to die any time gophers are destroying them. This is caused by the roots supplying life to that portion of the plant is harmed or destroyed by your gopher and without any longer giving life for that part of the plant you happen to be 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 tell them apart from other tunneling rodents like  ground squirrels.  They can create 1-3 mounds a day which is why you want to eradicate gophers immediately on your home.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is normally done by a professional pest control company with experience with how to kill gophers for your lawn.  Always make sure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not merely a structural license.

Damage and why we need Removal

Gophers consume plants, roots of trees, ornamental 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 small, un-established and it does not} take much for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Grass is also very effected by gophers with damage from both the eating of the lawn and the dirt pushed up and staying on the turf which kills it.

Big trees can take gnawing for a little bit so not to worry.  Smaller trees can be destroyed by a gopher in a short time because the root system supplying the life to the tree are young.  You will see certain branches of trees or bushes begin to die off 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 tree you are growing in.

The common control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, poison, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are options that a property owner can use with limited success. Burrow Blasting is normally operated by a service dedicated to gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of the cost of the blaster.

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 smoke bombs from the hardware store which are seldom successful.

Poison baits available to agriculture pest control professionals 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 technique to use for each situation and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective control of gophers.

Using water to force them out 

Flooding can work on farms where the whole field is flooded and there is nowhere for a gopher to go.  On your property you are going to attempt to flood the gopher with a garden hose in the opening.  The problem is the water usually never fills up the burrow and the gopher simply raises his nose above the water line until you start to panic about the cost of water in Cypress and shut it off.

Repellent 

No repellents in Cypress available at the present time that have been shown to provide good Gopher Exterminator. 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.

Keep 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 attaching a 1/4 inch galvanized hardware cloth under the bed and securing it to the 2×6 wood frame prior to adding soil in your yard.
