Destruction and reasons we need Removal
Gophers eat plants, tree roots, flowers and vegetables on your garden – 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 consume it. Grass is also very impacted by gophers with damage from both the eating of the turf and the dirt pushed on top and sitting on the lawn which kills 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 nutrients to the tree are young. You will see certain branches of trees or bushes begin to dry out when gophers are damaging 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 plant you are growing in.
The common control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, poison, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are options that a home 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) due to the cost of the blaster.
Burrow fumigants are very 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 Lowes which are not very effective.
Poison baits used by agriculture pest control operators are much higher concentration and effective than what is obtainable to a homeowner. The main reason to hire a gopher expert is the experience of what technique to use for each situation 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 entire crop area 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 garden hose down the hole. The problem is the water typically never fills up the tunnel system and the gopher simply raises his head above the water line until you start to panic about the cost of water in La Palma and shut off the water off.
There are no repellents in La Palma 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 relief, but these claims have never been proved. 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 be cost prohibitive. Plus this would at best only provide short-term control. Eventually gophers find a way in.
Raised flower 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 prior to adding soil in your yard.
