Any gopher control Anaheim Hills California needs is from the pocket gopher that is the same as a gopher. Just about all damage is to new plants simply because they’re immature, un-established and it would not require a lot of gnawing for one gopher to eliminate or feed on it. Turf can be seriously effected by gophers with damages from both the feeding of the turf plus the soil pushed at the top as well as residing on top of the turf in which smothers it.

Big trees usually takes biting for a little bit so don’t worry. Smaller trees could be destroyed because of a gopher right away because the roots supplying the life for your tree are young. You will see certain branches of trees or bushes begin to die as soon as gophers are harming them. This is caused by the roots providing life for that part of the plant is harmed or destroyed by the gopher and without any longer supplying life for that part of the plant you might be raising.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are usually stuffed wth dirt like in the picture above. This helps to tell them apart from other burrowing rodents like  voles.  They can dig one to three mounds every day leading to why you want to remove gophers right away on your landscape.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is commonly done by a gopher specialist pest control company with experience with how to eradicate gophers for your house.  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 why 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 plants because they are small, un-established and it does not} take a lot for a gopher to destroy or eat it.  Grass is also very effected by gophers with damage from both the eating of the lawn and the soil pushed up and staying on the turf which smothers it.

Large trees can take gnawing for a little bit so not to panic.  Smaller trees can be destroyed by a gopher in a short time because the root system supplying the nutrients to the tree are young.  You will see certain branches of trees or bushes start 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 life to that part of the tree 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 techniques that a home owner can use with limited success. Burrow Blasting is normally done by a company serious about gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of the expense of the machine.

Burrow fumigants are extremely 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 companies 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 removal of gophers.

Using water to force them out 

Flooding can be effective on farms where the entire crop area is flooded and there is nowhere for a gopher to go.  On your property you are going to try to flood the gopher with a water holse down the hole.  The problem is the water usually never fills up the burrow and the gopher simply raises his head above the water line until you begin to worry about the cost of water in Anaheim Hills and shut it off.

Repellent 

There are no repellents in Anaheim Hills available at the present time that have been shown to provide good Gopher Pest Control Service. 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 no one would be reading this site including you.

Keeping gophers out of your lawn 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. At some point gophers find a way in. 

Raised 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 before filling with soil in your yard.
