Pocket gopher burrows are normally stuffed wth dirt like in the picture above. This helps to differentiate them from other tunneling rodents like  moles.  They can make one to three mounds per day leading to why you want to get rid of gophers right away on your landscape.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is typically done by a qualified pest control company with experience with how to eradicate gophers for your house.  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 why we need Removal

Gophers consume plants, tree roots, ornamental flowers and vegetables on your yard – if it’s a plant they most likely will eatwll consume|like} it.  Most damage is to new plants because they are small, un-established and it does not} take much for a gopher to destroy or eat it.  Grass is also very impacted by gophers with destruction from both the eating of the turf and the soil pushed on top and sitting on the grass which smothers it.

Big trees can take chewing for a little bit so not to worry.  Smaller trees can be destroyed by a gopher right away because the root system supplying the nutrients to the tree are young.  You will see certain branches of trees or bushes begin to dry out when gophers are attacking 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 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 methods that a home owner can use with limited success. Burrow Blasting is usually done by a service dedicated to gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of the cost of the equipment.

Burrow fumigants are very effective 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 Lowes which are seldom successful.

Poison baits used by agriculture pest control companies are much higher strength and effective than what is obtainable 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 out 

Flooding can work on farms where the whole 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 hose down the opening.  The problem is the water typically 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 Bellflower and shut it off.

Repellent 

No repellents in Bellflower available at the present time that have been shown to provide good Gopher Pest Control. 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 garden using physical barriers can be effective for small projects. Any large project, such as placing fencing around the perimeter of your backyard would cost too much. Plus this would at best only give short-term control. Eventually gophers find a way in. 

Above ground flower 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.
