Any gopher control Orange County Ca . needs is from the pocket gopher that is exactly the same thing as a gopher. Most harm is to new plants as they are immature, un-established and it also would not require a whole lot gnawing for a gopher to eliminate or eat it. Lawn is highly effected by gophers with damage from both consuming from the lawn as well as the dirt pushed at the top in addition to residing on top of the lawn in which smothers it.

Giant trees normally takes biting for a little bit so don’t worry. Smaller trees could be killed by the gopher immediately because roots supplying the life to your tree are young. You might find certain limbs of trees or bushes begin to die off any time gophers are harming it. This is a result of the roots supplying life to that part of the plant is impaired or destroyed because of the gopher and without any longer supplying life for that section of the plant you are raising.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are normally plugged like in the picture above. This helps to tell them apart from other tunneling rodents like  ground squirrels.  They can create one to three mounds per day leading to why you want to eliminate gophers right away on your yard.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is typically done by a gopher specialist pest control company with background in how to kill gophers for your home.  Always ensure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not only a license for structural pest control.

Destruction and reasons we need Removal

Gophers eat plants, tree roots, ornamental flowers and vegetables on your garden – if it’s a plant they probably 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 eat it.  Grass is also very effected by gophers with damage from both the eating of the lawn and the dirt pushed up and sitting on the turf which smothers it.

Big trees can take chewing for a while so not to worry.  Smaller trees can be killed by a gopher right away because the roots supplying the nutrients to the tree are undeveloped.  You will notice certain branches of trees or bushes begin to dry out when gophers are attacking it.  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 nutrients to that part of the tree you are growing in.

The most effective control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, poison, 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 typically performed by a service serious about gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of the cost of the blaster.

Burrow fumigants are very useful 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 tools store which are not very effective.

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 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 force 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 attempt to flood the gopher with a hose 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 begin to panic about the cost of water in Orange County and shut off the water off.

Repellent 

There are no repellents in Orange County 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 you would not be reading this site.

Keeping gophers out of your garden using physical barriers can be effective for small projects. Any large project, such as placing fencing around the area of your backyard would be cost prohibitive. Plus this would at best only give 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 under the bed and securing it to the 2×6 wood frame before filling with soil in your yard.
