60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

A gopher control Hawaiaan Gardens California needs is from the pocket gopher which is exactly the same thing as a gopher. A large amount of destruction is to new plants as they are immature, un-established and it also will not require a lot of gnawing for a gopher to eliminate or eat it. Turf is also highly impacted by gophers with destruction from both the feeding on the grass and also the dirt shoved on the top and staying on the grass which in turn smothers it.

Giant trees can take gnawing for a little bit so not to worry. Smaller trees are usually killed by a gopher immediately since the roots offering the life to the tree are immature. You will quickly realize certain limbs of trees or bushes start to die off as soon as gophers are harming it. This is due to the roots giving life to that an area of the plant is compromised or killed from the gopher and without any longer supplying life for that part of the plant you’re raising.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are usually plugged like in the picture above. This helps to set them apart from other burrowing rodents like  ground squirrels.  They can make one to three mounds per day reason behind the fact of why you want to eradicate gophers immediately on your yard.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is typically done by a professional pest control company with experience with 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 only a license for structural pest control.

Damage and why we need Removal

Gophers consume plants, roots of trees, ornamental flowers and vegetables on your garden – if it’s a plant they most likely will eatwll consume|like} it.  Most damage is to new vegetation because they are young, un-established and it doesn’tdoes not} take much for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Lawn is also very impacted by gophers with damage from both the eating of the lawn and the soil pushed on top and sitting on the grass which kills it.

Mature 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 root system 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 it.  This is caused by the roots supplying 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 most effective control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, bait, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are options that a home owner can use with some success. Burrow Blasting is normally done by a service serious about gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the expense of the equipment.

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 plant store which are not very effective.

Poison baits available to agriculture pest control companies are much higher strength and effective than what is obtainable 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 flush them to surface 

Flooding can work on farms where the entire 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 water holse in the opening.  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 start to panic about the water bill in Hawaiaan Gardens and shut it off.

Repellers 

No repellents in Hawaiaan Gardens 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.

Keep gophers out of your yard using physical barriers can be effective for small projects. 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. 

Above ground flower beds can be protected by fixing 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.
