60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

A gopher control Yorba Linda California needs is from the pocket gopher which is the same thing as a gopher. Just about all damage will be to new plants as they are immature, un-established and it would not require a great deal gnawing for that gopher to destroy or feed on it. Grass is likewise seriously effected by gophers with destruction from both the consuming on the turf and the soil shoved on the top along with staying on top of the lawn which often smothers it.

Big trees will take eating for a little bit so don’t worry. Smaller trees could very well be killed by the gopher promptly because the roots supplying the life for the tree are immature. You might find particular branches of trees or bushes continue to die off as soon as gophers are harming them. This is caused by the roots supplying life for that portion of the plant is compromised or killed because of the gopher and without any longer giving life for that section of the plant you’re growing.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are almost always plugged like in the picture above. This helps to tell them apart from other tunneling rodents like  ground squirrels.  They can make 1-3 mounds a day reason behind the fact of why you want to get rid of gophers immediately on your home.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is usually done by a qualified pest control company with background in how to eliminate gophers for your yard.  Always check that 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 reasons 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 small, un-established and it doesn’tdoes not} take much for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Lawn is also highly effected by gophers with destruction from both the eating of the lawn and the dirt pushed on top and staying on the grass which smothers it.

Mature 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 root system supplying the life to the tree are young.  You will see certain branches of trees or bushes begin to die off 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 nutrients to that part of the tree you are growing in.

The most effective 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 some success. Burrow Blasting is typically operated by a service serious about gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the expense of the machine.

Burrow fumigants are extremely useful but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed techs like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the flares from the plant store which are seldom successful.

Poison baits used by agriculture pest control professionals are much higher strength and effective than what is obtainable to a homeowner.  The main reason to hire a gopher expert is the knowledge of what method 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 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 garden hose in the hole.  The problem is the water typically never fills up the burrow and the gopher simply raises his head above the water line until you start to panic about the water bill in Yorba Linda and shut it off.

Repellers 

There are no repellents in Yorba Linda 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 control, but these claims have never been proved.   If they really worked to get rid of gophers you would not be reading this site.

Keep gophers out of your yard 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 give short-term control. Eventually gophers find a way in. 

Above ground planter 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 prior to adding soil in your yard.
