60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

A gopher control Mira Loma California needs is from the pocket gopher that is the exact same as a gopher. Almost all damage is almost always to new plants because they are immature, un-established and so it would not take a lot gnawing for a gopher to eliminate or eat it. Turf can be exceptionally impacted by gophers with destruction from both feeding on the turf and also the earth moved on top and residing on top of the turf which often smothers it.

Big trees usually takes chewing for a while so no worries. Smaller trees can be destroyed because of a gopher promptly given that the roots offering the life for your tree are young. You will quickly realize distinct branches of trees or bushes continue to die out as soon as gophers are damaging it. This is due to the roots supplying life to that part of the plant is weakened or destroyed because of the gopher and without any longer providing life to that part of the plant you will 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 tunneling rodents like  ground squirrels.  They can dig 1-3 mounds per day which is why you want to eliminate gophers right away on your landscape.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is normally done by a qualified pest control company with background in how to eliminate gophers for your house.  Always make sure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not merely a structural license.

Damage and reasons we need Removal

Gophers eat 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 vegetation because they are young, un-established and it doesn’tdoes not} take much for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Turf is also highly impacted by gophers with damage from both the eating of the lawn and the soil pushed on top and sitting on the turf which kills it.

Large trees can take gnawing 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 undeveloped.  You will notice certain branches of trees or bushes start to die off when gophers are attacking 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 plant you are growing in.

The best control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, bait, 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 usually performed by a company dedicated to gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the cost of the equipment.

Burrow fumigants are very effective but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed professionals like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the smoke bombs from the nursery which are not very effective.

Poison baits used by 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 experience of what method 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 work on farms where the entire crop area is flooded and there is nowhere for a gopher to escape.  On your property you are going to try to flood the gopher with a water holse down the hole.  The problem is the water usually 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 Mira Loma and shut it off.

Repellers 

There are no repellents in Mira Loma 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 proved.   If they really worked to get rid of gophers no one would be reading this site including you.

Keep 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. 

Above ground planter beds can be protected by placing 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.
