60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

Any gopher control Loma Linda Ca needs is from the pocket gopher which is the exact same as a gopher. Most destruction is to new plants because they’re immature, un-established and it also won’t take very much gnawing for one gopher to eliminate or consume it. Lawn can also be exceptionally impacted by gophers with damages from both the consuming of the lawn and the soil pushed on top in addition to residing on the turf which usually smothers it.

Giant trees takes eating for a while so don’t worry. Smaller trees are generally destroyed by the gopher immediately since the roots supplying the life to your tree are young. You will see distinct limbs of trees or bushes start to die as soon as gophers are destroying it. This is due to the roots giving life to that section of the plant is impaired or destroyed by the gopher and no longer providing life to 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 filled with dirt like in the picture above. This helps to differentiate them from other tunneling rodents like  moles.  They can make one to three mounds per day reason behind the fact of why you want to eradicate gophers immediately on your landscape.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is commonly done by a qualified pest control company with knowledge of 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 reasons we need Removal

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

Big trees can take gnawing for a little bit so not to worry.  Smaller trees can be killed by a gopher right away because the root system supplying the life to the tree are undeveloped.  You will notice certain branches of trees or bushes begin to dry out when gophers are attacking it.  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 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 techniques that a property owner can use with some success. Burrow Blasting is typically done by a service dedicated to gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the cost of the equipment.

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

Poison baits available to 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 control of gophers.

Using water to wash them to surface 

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 garden hose down the hole.  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 worry about the water bill in Loma Linda and shut off the water off.

Repellent 

There are no repellents in Loma Linda 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 authenticated.   If they really worked to get rid of gophers you would not be reading this site.

Keeping gophers out of your lawn 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 offer short-term control. Eventually gophers find a way in. 

Raised 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.
