Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are usually plugged like in the picture above. This helps to tell them apart from other tunneling rodents like  voles.  They can make one to three mounds a day reason behind the fact of why you want to eliminate gophers right away on your landscape.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is normally done by a professional pest control company with knowledge of how to remove gophers for your lawn.  Always check that they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not merely a license for structural pest control.

Destruction and reasons 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 plants because they are small, un-established and it does not} take a lot for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Turf is also very impacted by gophers with damage from both the eating of the turf and the soil pushed on top and sitting on the lawn which smothers it.

Big trees can take chewing for a little bit so not to panic.  Smaller trees can be killed by a gopher right away because the root system supplying the nutrients to the tree are young.  You will notice certain branches of trees or bushes start to die off when gophers are attacking 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 common control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, baiting, 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 usually done by a company dedicated to gophers (we use 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 Lowes which are seldom successful.

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 knowledge of what technique to use for each property and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective control of gophers.

Using water to force them out 

Flooding can work on farms where the whole field 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 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 be concerned about the cost of water in Irwindale and shut off the water off.

Repellers 

There are no repellents in Irwindale 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 relief, 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.

Keeping gophers out of your garden using physical barriers can be effective for small areas. Any large project, such as placing fencing around the perimeter of your backyard would be cost prohibitive. Plus this would at best only provide short-term control. Eventually gophers find a way in. 

Raised flower beds can be protected by fixing 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.
