60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

Any gopher control Brea California needs is from the pocket gopher that is exactly the same as a gopher. Most destruction will be to new plants because they are immature, un-established and it also does not take a whole lot gnawing for that gopher to eliminate or feed on it. Lawn is seriously impacted by gophers with destruction from both the feeding from the turf and also the dirt moved on the top and staying on top of the turf in which smothers it.

Big trees could take eating for a little bit so not to worry. Smaller trees may be destroyed by way of gopher promptly simply because the roots supplying the life for your tree are young. You might find distinct limbs of trees or bushes begin to die off as soon as gophers are destroying them. This is the result of the roots issuing life for that portion of the plant is damaged or killed by the gopher and without any longer supplying life for that part 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 plugged 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 every day reason behind the fact of why you want to remove gophers immediately on your landscape.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is commonly done by a professional pest control company with background in how to eliminate gophers for your house.  Always make sure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not merely a license for structural pest control.

Destruction and reasons we need Removal

Gophers consume plants, tree roots, flowers and vegetables on your yard – 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.  Turf is also highly impacted by gophers with damage from both the eating of the turf and the dirt pushed up and staying on the grass which smothers it.

Large trees can take gnawing for a while so not to panic.  Smaller trees can be killed by a gopher right away because the root system supplying the nutrients to the tree are undeveloped.  You will notice certain branches of trees or bushes begin to die off when gophers are damaging them.  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 property owner can use with some success. Burrow Blasting is normally operated by a company serious about gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the expense of the blaster.

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 flares from the hardware store which are seldom successful.

Poison baits used by agriculture pest control operators are much higher concentration and effective than what is available to a homeowner.  The main reason to hire a gopher expert is the experience of what method to use for each situation and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective control of gophers.

Using water to flush them out 

Flooding can work on farms where the whole field 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 down the opening.  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 start to worry about the water bill in Brea and shut off the water off.

Repellent 

No repellents in Brea available at the present time that have been shown to provide good Gopher Service. Several plants, such as gopher purge and cantor bean have been said to offer relief, but these claims have never been authenticated.   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 area 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. 

Above ground planter 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.
