60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

A gopher control Temple City Ca needs is from the pocket gopher that is exactly the same as a gopher. A large amount of damages is almost always to new plants since they are immature, un-established plus it will not require a great deal gnawing for that gopher to eliminate or feed on it. Lawn can be seriously effected by gophers with damages from both the feeding on of the lawn plus the soil pushed on top and residing on top of the turf which usually smothers it.

Big trees can take gnawing for a while so don’t worry. Smaller trees might be destroyed by a gopher right away since the roots supplying the life to your tree are young. You discover certain branches of trees or bushes begin to die out as soon as gophers are damaging them. This is a result of the roots giving life for that part of the plant is impaired or destroyed because of the gopher and without any longer supplying life for that part of the plant you’re raising.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are usually stuffed wth dirt like in the picture above. This helps to tell them apart from other burrowing rodents like  voles.  They can make 1-3 mounds per day reason behind the fact of why you want to eliminate gophers immediately on your home.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is commonly done by a gopher specialist pest control company with background in how to get rid of gophers for your yard.  Always ensure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not just a license for structural pest control.

Destruction and reasons we need Removal

Gophers consume 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 young, un-established and it does not} take much for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Turf is also highly effected by gophers with destruction from both the eating of the lawn and the dirt pushed on top and sitting on the grass which smothers it.

Large trees can take gnawing for a while so not to panic.  Smaller trees can be destroyed by a gopher right away because the root system supplying the nutrients to the tree are young.  You will notice certain branches of trees or bushes start to die off when gophers are eating 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 common control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, 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 performed by a service dedicated to gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of the cost of the machine.

Burrow fumigants are very useful but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed pros like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the smoke bombs from the plant 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 to surface 

Flooding can be effective on farms where the entire 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 garden hose in the hole.  The problem is the water usually never fills up the tunnel system and the gopher simply raises his nose above the water line until you begin to think about about the water bill in Temple City and shut it off.

Repellent 

No repellents in Temple City 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 you would not be reading this site.

Keep gophers out of your garden 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 offer short-term control. Eventually gophers find a way in. 

Above ground 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 before filling with soil in your yard.
