Any gopher control Rosemead Ca . needs is from the pocket gopher that is exactly the same as a gopher. A large amount of destruction is to new plants because immature, un-established and it won’t take very much gnawing for one gopher to destroy or feed on it. Turf is likewise exceptionally effected by gophers with damages from both the feeding on from the lawn and also the earth shoved on top as well as staying on top of the turf which in turn smothers it.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are usually plugged like in the picture above. This helps to tell them apart from other tunneling rodents like  moles.  They can make 1-3 mounds a day which is why you want to get rid of gophers right away on your home.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is typically done by a gopher specialist pest control company with background in how to get rid of gophers for your home.  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.

Damage and why we need Removal

Gophers consume plants, roots of trees, 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 vegetation because they are small, un-established and it doesn’tdoes not} take much for a gopher to destroy or eat it.  Lawn is also very effected by gophers with destruction from both the eating of the turf and the soil pushed up and staying on the lawn which smothers it.

Large trees can take chewing for a while so not to worry.  Smaller trees can be killed by a gopher in a short time because the roots supplying the life to the tree are young.  You will see certain branches of trees or bushes begin to die off when gophers are eating them.  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 best control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, poison, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are techniques that a home owner can use with limited success. Burrow Blasting is normally done by a company serious about gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the cost of the machine.

Burrow fumigants are very useful but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed professionals like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the flares from the tools store which are not very effective.

Poison baits available to agriculture pest control professionals 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 situation and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective removal of gophers.

Using water to flush them out 

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 try to flood the gopher with a water holse down the hole.  The problem is the water typically never fills up the burrow and the gopher simply raises his nose above the water line until you start to panic about the cost of water in Rosemead and shut it off.

Repellent 

There are no repellents in Rosemead available at the present time that have been proved to provide good Gopher Pest Control. Several plants, such as gopher purge and cantor bean have been said to offer relief, but these claims have never been proved.   If they really worked to get rid of gophers you would not be reading this site.

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 be cost prohibitive. Plus this would at best only give 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 below the bed and securing it to the 2×6 wood frame prior to adding soil in your yard.
