Any gopher control Long Beach Ca needs is from the pocket gopher which is exactly the same thing as a gopher. Most damages is to new plants because they’re young, un-established and it would not take a lot gnawing for one gopher to eliminate or feed on it. Lawn is exceptionally impacted by gophers with destruction from both the feeding on of the turf and the earth forced at the top as well as staying on the lawn in which smothers it.

Big trees could take chewing for a little bit so not to worry. Smaller trees may be destroyed by the gopher quickly given that the roots supplying the life for your tree are young. You discover certain branches of trees or bushes begin to die out whenever gophers are harming it. This is a result of the roots supplying life to that section of the plant is impaired or destroyed by the gopher and no longer providing life for that part of the plant you are growing.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are usually plugged like in the picture above. This helps to set them apart from other burrowing rodents like  voles.  They can make 1-3 mounds every day leading to why you want to eradicate gophers immediately on your home.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is usually done by a gopher specialist pest control company with experience with how to remove gophers for your home.  Always make sure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not just a license for structural pest control.

Destruction and why we need Removal

Gophers consume plants, tree roots, flowers and vegetables on your lawn – if it’s a plant they probably will eatwll consume|like} it.  Most damage is to new vegetation because they are young, un-established and it does not} take much for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Lawn is also very effected by gophers with destruction from both the eating of the lawn and the dirt pushed up 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 in a short time because the roots supplying the nutrients to the tree are undeveloped.  You will see certain branches of trees or bushes start to dry out 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 tree you are growing in.

The common control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, poison baiting, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are options that a property owner can use with limited success. Burrow Blasting is usually done by a company serious about gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the cost 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 smoke bombs from the Home Depot which are seldom successful.

Poison baits used by agriculture pest control operators are much higher strength 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 removal of gophers.

Using water to force them to surface 

Flooding can work on farms where the whole crop area 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 in the hole.  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 begin to be concerned about the cost of water in Long Beach and shut it off.

Repellers 

No repellents in Long Beach 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 cost too much. Plus this would at best only provide short-term control. At some point gophers find a way in. 

Above ground planter 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 before filling with soil in your yard.
