60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

A gopher control Etiwanda Ca needs is from the pocket gopher that is the exact same as a gopher. Most destruction will be to new plants because they’re young, un-established and so it does not require much gnawing for the gopher to destroy or eat it. Lawn can be highly impacted by gophers with destruction from both feeding on on the lawn and the earth pushed on top along with residing on top of the grass which unfortunately smothers it.

Big trees can take gnawing for a little bit so don’t worry. Smaller trees are generally killed by way of gopher right away because roots supplying the life to your tree are young. You might find particular branches of trees or bushes continue to die off when ever gophers are destroying them. This is due to the roots providing life for that area of the plant is weakened or destroyed by the gopher and without any longer providing 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 filled with dirt like in the picture above. This helps to set them apart from other burrowing rodents like  voles.  They can dig 1-3 mounds a day reason behind the fact of why you want to get rid of gophers immediately on your yard.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is normally done by a professional pest control company with experience with how to remove 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 reasons we need Removal

Gophers eat plants, roots of trees, 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 doesn’tdoes not} take much for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Lawn is also highly impacted by gophers with damage from both the eating of the grass and the soil pushed up and staying on the grass which smothers it.

Big trees can take gnawing for a little bit so not to panic.  Smaller trees can be destroyed by a gopher right away because the roots supplying the life to the tree are undeveloped.  You will see certain branches of trees or bushes start to dry out 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 life to that part of the tree you are growing in.

The best control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, baiting, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are techniques that a property owner can use with limited success. Burrow Blasting is normally done by a company dedicated to gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the expense of the blaster.

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 operators 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 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 go.  On your property you are going to try to flood the gopher with a garden hose in the opening.  The problem is the water usually never fills up the tunnel system and the gopher simply raises his head above the water line until you start to be concerned about the water bill in Etiwanda and shut off the water off.

Repellers 

No repellents in Etiwanda 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 authenticated.   If they really worked to get rid of gophers you would not be reading this site.

Keep gophers out of your yard using physical barriers can be effective for small areas. Any large project, such as placing fencing around the area 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 planter beds can be protected by placing a 1/4 inch galvanized hardware cloth below the bed and securing it to the 2×6 wood frame before filling with soil in your yard.
