A large amount of damage is to new plants since they’re immature, un-established and it also doesn’t take a good deal gnawing for one gopher to destroy or consume it. Turf is additionally seriously impacted by gophers with damage from both feeding on on the grass and also the soil forced at the top as well as staying on top of the lawn which smothers it.

Damage and why we need Removal
Gophers consume plants, roots of trees, flowers and vegetables on your garden – 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 a lot for a gopher to destroy or consume it.

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 some success. Burrow Blasting is typically performed by a service serious about gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the cost of the blaster.
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 smoke bombs from the Home Depot which are seldom successful.
Poison baits used by agriculture pest control professionals 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 method to use for each property and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective control of gophers.
Using water to force them to surface
Flooding can work on farms where the entire crop area is flooded and there is nowhere for a gopher to escape. On your property you are going to try to flood the gopher with a garden hose down 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 begin to think about about the cost of water in La Puente and shut off the water off.

If they really worked to get rid of gophers no one would be reading this site including you.
Keep gophers out of your garden using physical barriers can be effective for small projects. Any large project, such as placing fencing around the area of your backyard would be cost prohibitive. Plus this would at best only provide short-term control. At some point gophers find a way in.
