Any gopher control Yorba Linda California needs is from the pocket gopher that is the same thing as a gopher. Most destruction is to new plants simply because they’re young, un-established and it doesn’t take a lot gnawing for the gopher to eliminate or eat it. Turf is highly effected by gophers with damage from both the feeding on from the turf as well as the soil shoved at the top along with residing on top of the lawn which unfortunately smothers it.

Giant trees normally takes gnawing for a little bit so don’t worry. Smaller trees may be killed by the gopher right away given that the roots supplying the life for the tree are immature. You will see distinct branches of trees or bushes start to die off as soon as gophers are destroying them. This is due to the roots providing life to that section of the plant is harmed or destroyed because of the gopher and no longer providing life to that section of the plant that you are growing.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

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 1-3 mounds per day reason behind the fact of why you want to get rid of gophers immediately on your landscape.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is commonly done by a gopher specialist pest control company with knowledge of how to get rid of gophers for your yard.  Always check that 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, roots of trees, ornamental flowers and vegetables on your lawn – if it’s a plant they most likely will eatwll consume|like} it.  Most damage is to new vegetation because they are small, un-established and it doesn’tdoes not} take a lot for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Grass is also very impacted by gophers with destruction from both the eating of the grass 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 nutrients 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 supplying 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 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 done by a service dedicated to 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 smoke bombs from the tools store which are not very effective.

Poison baits available to 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 knowledge of what method to use for each property 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 whole field is flooded and there is nowhere for a gopher to escape.  On your property you are going to attempt to flood the gopher with a garden hose in the opening.  The problem is the water typically never fills up the burrow and the gopher simply raises his head above the water line until you begin to panic about the cost of water in Yorba Linda and shut off the water off.

Repellers 

No repellents in Yorba Linda 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 proved.   If they really worked to get rid of gophers no one would be reading this site including you.

Keeping gophers out of your garden using physical barriers can be effective for small areas. 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. Eventually gophers find a way in. 

Above ground flower beds can be protected by fixing a 1/4 inch galvanized hardware cloth under the bed and securing it to the 2×6 wood frame before filling with soil in your yard.
