60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

A gopher control Anaheim California needs is from the pocket gopher that is the exact same as a gopher. A large amount of destruction is to new plants since they are young, un-established plus it will not require very much gnawing for that gopher to eliminate or devour it. Grass is additionally exceptionally effected by gophers with destruction from both eating on the grass and also the dirt shoved on top as well as staying on the lawn that smothers it.

Giant trees could take biting for a little bit so not to worry. Smaller trees can be killed by way of a gopher right away simply because the roots supplying the life to the tree are immature. You might find particular limbs of trees or bushes begin to die out when ever gophers are damaging it. This is due to the roots issuing life for that area of the plant is harmed or destroyed from the gopher and without any longer providing life for that section of the plant you might be growing.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are usually stuffed wth dirt like in the picture above. This helps to differentiate them from other burrowing rodents like  moles.  They can create one to three mounds every day which is why you want to remove gophers immediately on your home.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is typically done by a qualified pest control company with background in how to kill gophers for your home.  Always check that they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not just a structural license.

Damage and why we need Removal

Gophers eat plants, roots of trees, flowers and vegetables on your yard – 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 doesn’tdoes not} take much for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Grass is also highly effected by gophers with destruction from both the eating of the turf and the soil pushed on top and sitting on the lawn which kills it.

Large 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 roots supplying the nutrients to the tree are young.  You will notice certain branches of trees or bushes start to die off when gophers are damaging 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 nutrients to that part of the plant 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 limited success. Burrow Blasting is usually performed by a company serious about gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of the cost of the machine.

Burrow fumigants are extremely useful but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed experts like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the smoke bombs from the Lowes which are not very effective.

Poison baits used by agriculture pest control companies 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 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 typically never fills up the tunnel system and the gopher simply raises his head above the water line until you begin to think about about the water bill in Anaheim and shut it off.

Repellers 

No repellents in Anaheim available at the present time that have been proved to provide good Gopher Service. Several plants, such as gopher purge and cantor bean have been said to offer control, but these claims have never been authenticated.   If they really worked to get rid of gophers you would not be reading this site.

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

Raised flower beds can be protected by attaching 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.

Calif DFG position
