Any gopher control Azusa California needs is from the pocket gopher which is the exact same as a gopher. A lot of harm is to new plants being that they are immature, un-established and it also won’t require a good deal gnawing for a gopher to destroy or eat it. Turf is also highly impacted by gophers with damages from both the consuming from the turf plus the earth forced on the top along with residing on top of the turf which usually smothers it.

Big trees could take nibbling for a little bit so not to worry. Smaller trees can be killed because of a gopher quickly because the roots supplying the life for your tree are immature. You will quickly realize certain limbs of trees or bushes continue to die off whenever gophers are damaging them. This is a result of the roots giving life for that an area of the plant is damaged or killed from the gopher and no longer giving life to that section of the plant you will be growing.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are normally stuffed wth dirt like in the picture above. This helps to set them apart from other burrowing rodents like  ground squirrels.  They can make one to three mounds a day reason behind the fact of why you want to get rid of gophers right away on your home.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is typically done by a qualified pest control company with experience with how to eliminate 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, roots of trees, 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 does 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 turf and the soil pushed up and staying on the turf which kills it.

Big trees can take chewing for a while 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 dry out when gophers are attacking them.  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 methods that a home owner can use with some success. Burrow Blasting is normally done by a service serious about gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of 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 nursery which are seldom successful.

Poison baits used by agriculture pest control professionals are much higher concentration and effective than what is obtainable 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 removal of gophers.

Using water to force them to surface 

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 water holse in the hole.  The problem is the water typically 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 Azusa and shut it off.

Repellers 

There are no repellents in Azusa available at the present time that have been proved to provide good Gopher Removal. 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 no one would be reading this site including you.

Keeping gophers out of your garden using physical barriers can be effective for small projects. 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. 

Raised flower beds can be protected by attaching 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.
