Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are almost always stuffed wth dirt like in the picture above. This helps to set them apart from other burrowing rodents like  ground squirrels.  They can create one to three mounds a day reason behind the fact of why you want to eliminate gophers right away on your landscape.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is usually done by a gopher specialist pest control company with knowledge of how to remove gophers for your lawn.  Always ensure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not merely a license for structural pest control.

Damage and reasons we need Removal

Gophers consume plants, tree roots, ornamental flowers and vegetables on your lawn – if it’s a plant they probably will eatwll consume|like} it.  Most damage is to new plants because they are young, un-established and it does not} take a lot for a gopher to destroy or eat it.  Lawn is also highly impacted by gophers with destruction from both the eating of the turf and the dirt pushed up and sitting on the turf which kills it.

Mature trees can take gnawing for a while 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 undeveloped.  You will see certain branches of trees or bushes begin to die off when gophers are eating it.  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 nutrients to that part of the tree you are growing in.

The best control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, baiting, 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 usually done by a service serious about gophers (we use 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 experts like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the flares from the plant store which are not very effective.

Poison baits used by agriculture pest control operators 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 method 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 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 water holse 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 worry about the cost of water in North Hollywood and shut it off.

Repellent 

There are no repellents in North Hollywood 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 authenticated.   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 perimeter of your backyard would be cost prohibitive. Plus this would at best only provide short-term control. Eventually gophers find a way in. 

Raised flower beds can be protected by placing 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.
