60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

A gopher control El Sereno Ca needs is from the pocket gopher which is exactly the same thing as a gopher. The majority destruction is almost always to new plants as they are young, un-established therefore it would not require a whole lot gnawing for the gopher to destroy or eat it. Turf can also be seriously effected by gophers with damages from both the eating from the lawn and the soil pushed on top in addition to staying on top of the grass which will smothers it.

Big trees takes gnawing for a little bit so not to worry. Smaller trees can be destroyed by way of a gopher right away considering that the roots offering the life to the tree are young. You will see distinct limbs of trees or bushes begin to die off any time gophers are harming them. This is the result of the roots supplying life to that section of the plant is damaged or killed by your gopher and without any longer giving life for that section 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 filled with dirt like in the picture above. This helps to tell them apart from other burrowing rodents like  moles.  They can dig 1-3 mounds every day leading to why you want to remove gophers right away on your home.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is usually done by a qualified pest control company with knowledge of how to remove gophers for your house.  Always check that they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not only a structural license.

Destruction and reasons we need Removal

Gophers consume plants, roots of trees, ornamental flowers and vegetables on your yard – if it’s a plant they probably 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 consume it.  Lawn is also very effected by gophers with damage from both the eating of the grass and the dirt pushed up and staying on the grass which smothers it.

Large trees can take chewing for a while so not to panic.  Smaller trees can be killed by a gopher right away because the roots supplying the nutrients to the tree are young.  You will see certain branches of trees or bushes start to die off when gophers are eating it.  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 options that a property owner can use with some success. Burrow Blasting is typically performed by a service dedicated to gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the expense of the equipment.

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

Poison baits used by agriculture pest control professionals are much higher concentration and effective than what is available 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 removal of gophers.

Using water to wash them to surface 

Flooding can work on farms where the whole crop area is flooded and there is nowhere for a gopher to go.  On your property you are going to attempt to flood the gopher with a hose in 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 start to think about about the water bill in El Sereno and shut off the water off.

Repellers 

There are no repellents in El Sereno available at the present time that have been proved 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 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 area of your backyard would be cost prohibitive. Plus this would at best only provide short-term control. At some point gophers find a way in. 

Above ground 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 prior to adding soil in your yard.
