60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

Any gopher control Rancho Cucamonga Ca . needs is from the pocket gopher which is exactly the same as a gopher. A large amount of harm is almost always to new plants being that they are young, un-established and it also won’t require a great deal of gnawing for one gopher to eliminate or feed on it. Turf is exceptionally effected by gophers with destruction from both the eating on the lawn plus the dirt moved on the top as well as staying on the grass which unfortunately smothers it.

Big trees can take eating for a little bit so not to worry. Smaller trees can be destroyed by a gopher right away considering that the roots supplying the life for your tree are immature. You will quickly realize certain limbs of trees or bushes continue to die when gophers are destroying it. This is caused by the roots issuing life for that area of the plant is compromised or killed from the gopher and no longer giving life for that section of the plant you are growing.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are almost always stuffed wth dirt like in the picture above. This helps to tell them apart from other burrowing rodents like  moles.  They can make 1-3 mounds every day reason behind the fact of why you want to eliminate gophers immediately on your home.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is usually done by a professional pest control company with experience with how to eradicate gophers for your house.  Always ensure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not only a structural license.

Damage and reasons we need Removal

Gophers eat plants, tree roots, 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 doesn’tdoes not} take a lot for a gopher to destroy or eat it.  Grass is also very impacted by gophers with destruction from both the eating of the lawn and the soil pushed up and staying on the turf which kills it.

Mature trees can take gnawing for a while so not to panic.  Smaller trees can be destroyed by a gopher right away because the root system supplying the nutrients to the tree are young.  You will see 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 common control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, bait, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are methods that a property owner can use with limited success. Burrow Blasting is usually operated by a service dedicated to gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the cost of the machine.

Burrow fumigants are extremely effective 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 Lowes which are not very effective.

Poison baits available to agriculture pest control professionals are much higher concentration 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 property and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective control of gophers.

Using water to wash 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 try 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 start to panic about the water bill in Rancho Cucamonga and shut it off.

Repellent 

No repellents in Rancho Cucamonga 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 protection, 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 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 provide short-term control. At some point gophers find a way in. 

Above ground planter beds can be protected by placing 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.
