60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

A gopher control Hawaiaan Gardens Ca . needs is from the pocket gopher that is the exact same as a gopher. Almost all damage will be to new plants since they are young, un-established and so it will not require a good deal gnawing for one gopher to destroy or devour it. Turf is seriously effected by gophers with damage from both the eating from the lawn and the earth forced on the top along with staying on the grass in which smothers it.

Big trees can take biting for a little bit so don’t worry. Smaller trees are usually killed because of a gopher immediately simply because the roots offering the life to your tree are young. You might find particular branches of trees or bushes begin to die when ever gophers are harming them. This is caused by the roots providing life for that an area of the plant is harmed or destroyed because of the gopher and no longer supplying life for that section of the plant you are raising.

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 tunneling rodents like  voles.  They can make one to three mounds a day leading to why you want to remove gophers immediately on your landscape.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is typically done by a professional pest control company with background in how to remove gophers for your house.  Always make sure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not just a license for structural pest control.

Damage and why we need Removal

Gophers consume plants, roots of trees, ornamental flowers and vegetables on your lawn – 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 much for a gopher to destroy or eat it.  Grass is also highly impacted by gophers with damage from both the eating of the lawn and the dirt pushed up and staying on the turf which smothers it.

Mature trees can take chewing for a while so not to panic.  Smaller trees can be destroyed 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 start to dry out when gophers are eating it.  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, poison, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are options that a property owner can use with limited success. Burrow Blasting is normally operated by a company dedicated to gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of the cost of the blaster.

Burrow fumigants are extremely effective 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 Home Depot which are not very effective.

Poison baits available to agriculture pest control companies 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 control of gophers.

Using water to force them to surface 

Flooding can be effective on farms where the entire field is flooded and there is nowhere for a gopher to escape.  On your property you are going to try to flood the gopher with a water holse in the opening.  The problem is the water typically never fills up the burrow and the gopher simply raises his nose above the water line until you start to think about about the water bill in Hawaiaan Gardens and shut it off.

Repellers 

No repellents in Hawaiaan Gardens 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 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 cost too much. 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.
