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 tunneling rodents like  moles.  They can dig one to three mounds a day which is why you want to eradicate gophers right away on your home.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is commonly done by a qualified pest control company with background in how to eradicate gophers for your yard.  Always make sure 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 eat 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 doesn’tdoes not} take a lot for a gopher to destroy or eat it.  Lawn is also highly impacted by gophers with damage from both the eating of the turf and the soil pushed on top and sitting on the lawn which smothers it.

Big trees can take chewing for a little bit so not to worry.  Smaller trees can be destroyed by a gopher in a short time because the roots supplying the life to the tree are young.  You will notice certain branches of trees or bushes start to die off when gophers are eating them.  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 nutrients to that part of the tree you are growing in.

The common control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, bait, 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 performed by a company serious about gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of the expense of the blaster.

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 flares from the tools store which are not very effective.

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 experience of what method to use for each situation 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 hose down the hole.  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 be concerned about the water bill in San Bernardino and shut it off.

Repellent 

There are no repellents in San Bernardino 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 control, but these claims have never been authenticated.   If they really worked to get rid of gophers no one would be reading this site including you.

Keep gophers out of your lawn using physical barriers can be effective for small areas. 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. At some point gophers find a way in. 

Raised flower beds can be protected by attaching 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.
