Any gopher control Baldwin Park Ca . needs is from the pocket gopher that is exactly the same thing as a gopher. Almost all damage is almost always to new plants being that they are immature, un-established therefore it will not take a whole lot gnawing for the gopher to eliminate or eat it. Grass is also seriously impacted by gophers with destruction from both consuming from the lawn as well as the dirt forced at the top in addition to residing on top of the grass in which smothers it.

Big trees normally takes biting for a while so don’t worry. Smaller trees can be destroyed by a gopher promptly since the roots supplying the life to the tree are immature. You might find certain limbs of trees or bushes start to die off when ever gophers are destroying them. This is due to the roots giving life for that section of the plant is compromised or killed by the gopher and without any longer giving life to that section of the plant you happen to 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 tell them apart from other tunneling rodents like  moles.  They can create 1-3 mounds a day leading to why you want to get rid of gophers right away on your landscape.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is commonly done by a professional pest control company with background in 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 just a structural license.

Destruction and why we need Removal

Gophers consume plants, tree roots, ornamental flowers and vegetables on your lawn – 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 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 chewing for a little bit so not to worry.  Smaller trees can be destroyed by a gopher right away because the roots supplying the nutrients to the tree are young.  You will see certain branches of trees or bushes begin to dry out when gophers are eating them.  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 life to that part of the plant 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 options that a home owner can use with limited success. Burrow Blasting is normally done by a company dedicated to gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the cost of the equipment.

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 Home Depot which are not very effective.

Poison baits available to agriculture pest control companies are much higher strength and effective than what is available to a homeowner.  The main reason to hire a gopher expert is the knowledge of what technique to use for each situation 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 escape.  On your property you are going to attempt to flood the gopher with a hose in the opening.  The problem is the water usually never fills up the burrow and the gopher simply raises his head above the water line until you begin to think about about the cost of water in Baldwin Park and shut off the water off.

Repellers 

There are no repellents in Baldwin Park 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 you would not be reading this site.

Keeping 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 give short-term control. At some point gophers find a way in. 

Raised flower 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.
