60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

Any gopher control Fullerton Ca needs is from the pocket gopher that is the same as a gopher. Almost all harm is almost always to new plants since they are young, un-established and so it would not take a great deal gnawing for that gopher to eliminate or eat it. Lawn is also exceptionally effected by gophers with damages from both the feeding from the grass and also the dirt pushed on the top in addition to residing on top of the turf which in turn smothers it.

Big trees could take gnawing for a little bit so don’t worry. Smaller trees can be killed by way of gopher immediately considering that the roots offering the life for the tree are immature. You will quickly realize distinct branches of trees or bushes continue to die out when gophers are harming them. This is due to the roots issuing life for that section of the plant is weakened or killed from the gopher and without any longer providing life for that part of the plant you’re 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 1-3 mounds per day leading to why you want to remove gophers immediately on your landscape.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is typically done by a gopher specialist pest control company with experience with how to remove gophers for your yard.  Always make sure 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, roots of trees, flowers and vegetables on your garden – if it’s a plant they most likely will eatwll consume|like} it.  Most damage is to new plants because they are young, un-established and it does not} take much for a gopher to destroy or eat it.  Lawn is also very impacted by gophers with damage from both the eating of the grass and the dirt pushed on top and staying on the lawn which smothers 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 life to the tree are undeveloped.  You will notice certain branches of trees or bushes start to die off when gophers are damaging 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 common control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, poison baiting, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are options that a home owner can use with some success. Burrow Blasting is usually operated by a service dedicated to gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of the cost of the equipment.

Burrow fumigants are very effective but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed technicians like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the flares from the tools store which are seldom successful.

Poison baits available to agriculture pest control operators are much higher strength and effective than what is obtainable to a homeowner.  The main reason to hire a gopher expert is the experience of what method to use for each property 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 entire crop area 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 in 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 be concerned about the cost of water in Fullerton and shut it off.

Repellent 

No repellents in Fullerton available at the present time that have been shown 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.

Keep gophers out of your garden using physical barriers can be effective for small areas. Any large project, such as placing fencing around the area of your backyard would cost too much. Plus this would at best only provide short-term control. Eventually gophers find a way in. 

Raised flower beds can be protected by fixing a 1/4 inch galvanized hardware cloth below the bed and securing it to the 2×6 wood frame before filling with soil in your yard.
