60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

A gopher control Diamond Bar California needs is from the pocket gopher which is exactly the same as a gopher. The majority damage is to new plants since they’re young, un-established and it also does not require a great deal of gnawing for the gopher to eliminate or devour it. Grass is also exceptionally effected by gophers with damage from both the feeding on on the turf along with the dirt pushed on top in addition to residing on top of the lawn which in turn smothers it.

Giant trees will take nibbling for a while so don’t worry. Smaller trees are usually destroyed by the gopher quickly because the roots offering the life for the tree are immature. You will see distinct branches of trees or bushes continue to die off whenever gophers are destroying it. This is a result of the roots providing life for that portion of the plant is harmed or killed by the gopher and no longer giving life for that section of the plant you will 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 set them apart from other burrowing rodents like  moles.  They can make 1-3 mounds a day which is why you want to get rid of gophers immediately on your landscape.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is typically done by a professional pest control company with background in how to eradicate gophers for your lawn.  Always ensure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not just a license for structural pest control.

Destruction and why we need Removal

Gophers consume plants, tree roots, ornamental flowers and vegetables on your garden – if it’s a plant they most likely will eatwll consume|like} it.  Most damage is to new vegetation because they are small, un-established and it doesn’tdoes not} take a lot for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Lawn is also very effected by gophers with destruction from both the eating of the turf and the dirt pushed on top and staying on the grass which smothers it.

Mature trees can take chewing for a while so not to worry.  Smaller trees can be destroyed by a gopher in a short time because the root system supplying the life to the tree are undeveloped.  You will notice certain branches of trees or bushes begin to die off when gophers are attacking 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 life to that part of the plant you are growing in.

The common control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, baiting, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are techniques that a property owner can use with some success. Burrow Blasting is typically operated by a company dedicated to gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of the expense of the blaster.

Burrow fumigants are extremely effective 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 nursery which are not very effective.

Poison baits available to agriculture pest control operators 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 situation and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective removal of gophers.

Using water to flush them out 

Flooding can work on farms where the entire 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 water holse down the hole.  The problem is the water usually never fills up the burrow and the gopher simply raises his nose above the water line until you start to think about about the cost of water in Diamond Bar and shut it off.

Repellent 

No repellents in Diamond Bar 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.

Keeping gophers out of your garden using physical barriers can be effective for small areas. Any large project, such as placing fencing around the perimeter of your backyard would cost too much. Plus this would at best only offer short-term control. At some point gophers find a way in. 

Above ground 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 before filling with soil in your yard.
