Any gopher control Cypress California needs is from the pocket gopher that is exactly the same as a gopher. The majority damage is to new plants being that they are young, un-established plus it would not require much gnawing for one gopher to destroy or consume it. Lawn is likewise highly effected by gophers with damages from both the feeding on the turf and the earth pushed on the top and residing on top of the lawn that smothers it.

Giant trees will take chewing for a while so don’t worry. Smaller trees might be killed by a gopher promptly because of the roots supplying the life for the tree are young. You discover distinct limbs of trees or bushes start to die off as soon as gophers are harming them. This is caused by the roots giving life to that area of the plant is compromised or destroyed by your gopher and no longer providing life to that part of the plant you will be growing.

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  ground squirrels.  They can make 1-3 mounds per day leading to why you want to eliminate gophers immediately on your yard.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is normally done by a gopher specialist pest control company with background in how to get rid of 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 structural license.

Damage and why we need Removal

Gophers eat plants, tree roots, 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 much for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Turf is also highly effected by gophers with damage from both the eating of the turf and the dirt pushed on top and staying on the lawn which kills it.

Large trees can take chewing for a while so not to worry.  Smaller trees can be destroyed by a gopher in a short time because the roots supplying the nutrients to the tree are undeveloped.  You will notice certain branches of trees or bushes start to die off when gophers are damaging 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 most effective control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, poison, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are methods that a property owner can use with some success. Burrow Blasting is typically done by a company serious about gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the cost of the machine.

Burrow fumigants are extremely effective but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed pros like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the smoke bombs from the plant store which are not very effective.

Poison baits used by 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 technique 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 whole field 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 down the hole.  The problem is the water typically never fills up the tunnel system and the gopher simply raises his head above the water line until you begin to worry about the cost of water in Cypress and shut off the water off.

Repellers 

There are no repellents in Cypress 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 control, but these claims have never been authenticated.   If they really worked to get rid of gophers you would not be reading this site.

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 cost too much. 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.
