A gopher control Pasadena Ca needs is from the pocket gopher which is exactly the same thing as a gopher. The majority damages is almost always to new plants because young, un-established but it won’t take a good deal gnawing for one gopher to destroy or devour it. Grass is also highly effected by gophers with damage from both feeding of the grass along with the dirt shoved on top as well as staying on top of the lawn which usually smothers it.

Giant trees normally takes nibbling for a while so no worries. Smaller trees could be destroyed by the gopher quickly because the roots supplying the life for the tree are young. You will see distinct branches of trees or bushes begin to die when ever gophers are harming it. This is caused by the roots issuing life to that part of the plant is damaged or killed by your gopher and without any longer providing life to that part of the plant you are raising.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are normally stuffed wth dirt like in the picture above. This helps to differentiate them from other burrowing rodents like  moles.  They can make one to three mounds a day reason behind the fact of why you want to remove gophers immediately on your home.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is typically done by a professional pest control company with background in how to remove gophers for your lawn.  Always make sure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not just a structural license.

Damage and reasons we need Removal

Gophers eat 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 plants because they are young, un-established and it doesn’tdoes not} take a lot for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Grass is also highly impacted by gophers with destruction from both the eating of the turf and the soil pushed on top and staying on the lawn which smothers it.

Large 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 root system supplying the life to the tree are undeveloped.  You will notice certain branches of trees or bushes begin to dry out when gophers are damaging them.  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 most effective control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, poison baiting, 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 normally performed by a company serious about gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the expense of the machine.

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 nursery which are seldom successful.

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

Using water to flush them out 

Flooding can work on farms where the entire crop area 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 hole.  The problem is the water typically never fills up the burrow and the gopher simply raises his head above the water line until you start to think about about the water bill in Pasadena and shut it off.


No repellents in Pasadena 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 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 yard using physical barriers can be effective for small projects. Any large project, such as placing fencing around the area of your backyard would cost too much. Plus this would at best only provide short-term control. At some point gophers find a way in. 

Raised planter beds can be protected by placing 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.
