60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

Any gopher control Chino Ca . needs is from the pocket gopher that is the same as a gopher. Almost all destruction will be to new plants because they are young, un-established but it would not take a whole lot gnawing for one gopher to eliminate or feed on it. Lawn is also seriously impacted by gophers with destruction from both the consuming on the turf as well as the soil shoved at the top and residing on top of the grass which will smothers it.

Big trees normally takes gnawing for a little bit so no worries. Smaller trees could very well be destroyed by a gopher quickly considering that the roots offering the life to the tree are immature. You will quickly realize particular branches of trees or bushes begin to die off when ever gophers are damaging it. This is the result of the roots issuing life for that part of the plant is damaged or killed from the gopher and without any longer providing life for that part 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 almost always stuffed wth dirt like in the picture above. This helps to tell them apart from other burrowing rodents like  moles.  They can dig 1-3 mounds a day reason behind the fact of why you want to remove gophers right away on your home.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is usually done by a professional pest control company with background in how to eradicate gophers for your lawn.  Always make sure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not only a structural license.

Damage and why we need Removal

Gophers consume plants, tree roots, 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 a lot for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Lawn is also highly effected by gophers with damage from both the eating of the lawn and the soil pushed on top and sitting on the turf which smothers it.

Large trees can take chewing for a while so not to worry.  Smaller trees can be killed by a gopher in a short time because the roots supplying the life to the tree are young.  You will notice certain branches of trees or bushes start to die off when gophers are attacking it.  This is caused by the roots supplying that part of the plant is damaged or killed by the gopher and no longer supplying life to that part of the tree 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 methods that a property owner can use with some success. Burrow Blasting is typically performed by a service serious about gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of the cost of the machine.

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

Poison baits used by agriculture pest control companies 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 technique to use for each property and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective control of gophers.

Using water to wash them out 

Flooding can work on farms where the whole 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 opening.  The problem is the water usually never fills up the burrow and the gopher simply raises his nose above the water line until you begin to think about about the cost of water in Chino and shut off the water off.

Repellent 

There are no repellents in Chino 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 proved.   If they really worked to get rid of gophers no one would be reading this site including you.

Keeping gophers out of your yard 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 offer short-term control. At some point gophers find a way in. 

Above ground planter 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 before filling with soil in your yard.

Calif DFG position
