Any gopher control Long Beach California needs is from the pocket gopher that is the same as a gopher. Most damage is almost always to new plants since they are immature, un-established therefore it won’t require much gnawing for one gopher to destroy or feed on it. Turf is likewise seriously impacted by gophers with damage from both eating on the grass along with the soil pushed on the top as well as residing on the grass which usually smothers it.

Big trees normally takes eating for a little bit so don’t worry. Smaller trees could be destroyed by way of a gopher promptly because the roots offering the life to the tree are young. You will quickly realize particular branches of trees or bushes begin to die any time gophers are harming them. This is due to the roots issuing life to that part of the plant is impaired or killed by the gopher and no longer supplying life for that part of the plant you happen to be growing.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are usually filled with dirt like in the picture above. This helps to differentiate them from other tunneling rodents like  moles.  They can make 1-3 mounds every day reason behind the fact of why you want to get rid of gophers right away 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 yard.  Always check that they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not just a structural license.

Destruction and reasons 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 young, un-established and it does not} take much for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Turf is also highly impacted by gophers with damage 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 little bit so not to panic.  Smaller trees can be killed by a gopher in a short time because the roots supplying the life to the tree are young.  You will see certain branches of trees or bushes begin to dry out when gophers are attacking 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, poison, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are options that a home owner can use with some success. Burrow Blasting is normally performed by a company serious about gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the expense of the blaster.

Burrow fumigants are extremely effective but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed technicians like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the smoke bombs from the Home Depot which are not very effective.

Poison baits available to agriculture pest control companies are much higher strength and effective than what is available to a homeowner.  The main reason to hire a gopher expert is the experience of what technique to use for each property and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective control of gophers.

Using water to flush them to surface 

Flooding can work on farms where the entire crop area 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 water holse down 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 panic about the water bill in Long Beach and shut off the water off.

Repellent 

No repellents in Long Beach 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 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 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. At some point gophers find a way in. 

Raised flower 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 before filling with soil in your yard.
