Any gopher control Cypress California needs is from the pocket gopher which is the same thing as a gopher. Just about all damages is almost always to new plants since they are young, un-established and it does not require very much gnawing for one gopher to destroy or consume it. Grass is also highly impacted by gophers with damage from both consuming of the turf and also the earth forced on top along with staying on the lawn which will smothers it.

Giant trees will take gnawing for a little bit so no worries. Smaller trees can be killed by way of gopher promptly given that the roots supplying the life for the tree are immature. You might find certain limbs of trees or bushes begin to die off as soon as gophers are damaging them. This is the result of the roots supplying life for that an area of the plant is damaged or destroyed by your gopher and without any longer giving life for that section of the plant you’re growing.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are usually filled with dirt like in the picture above. This helps to set them apart from other burrowing rodents like  ground squirrels.  They can dig one to three mounds a day which is why you want to eradicate gophers right away on your home.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is commonly done by a professional pest control company with experience with how to kill gophers for your house.  Always ensure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not merely a structural license.

Damage and why we need Removal

Gophers consume plants, roots of trees, ornamental 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 eat it.  Grass is also highly effected by gophers with destruction from both the eating of the lawn and the dirt pushed on top and sitting on the lawn which smothers it.

Mature trees can take chewing for a little bit so not to worry.  Smaller trees can be killed by a gopher right away because the roots supplying the nutrients to the tree are undeveloped.  You will see certain branches of trees or bushes begin to die off when gophers are eating 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 plant you are growing in.

The best 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 limited success. Burrow Blasting is typically done by a service dedicated to gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the expense of the blaster.

Burrow fumigants are very useful but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed professionals 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 professionals are much higher concentration 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 removal of gophers.

Using water to wash 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 in 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 start to panic about the water bill in Cypress and shut off the water off.

Repellers 

No repellents in Cypress 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 protection, 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 projects. 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. At some point gophers find a way in. 

Raised planter beds can be protected by attaching a 1/4 inch galvanized hardware cloth below the bed and securing it to the 2×6 wood frame prior to adding soil in your yard.
