60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

Any gopher control North Hollywood Ca needs is from the pocket gopher which is the same thing as a gopher. Most damage will be to new plants simply because they’re young, un-established and it does not require a great deal gnawing for a gopher to eliminate or consume it. Lawn is also seriously impacted by gophers with destruction from both feeding on on the turf plus the soil shoved at the top as well as residing on the turf which smothers it.

Giant trees can take gnawing for a little bit so no worries. Smaller trees could be killed by the gopher right away because roots offering the life for your tree are young. You will quickly realize particular branches of trees or bushes begin to die out when ever gophers are damaging them. This is caused by the roots providing life to that section of the plant is harmed or destroyed by your gopher and no longer giving life to that section of the plant you happen to be growing.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are normally plugged like in the picture above. This helps to tell them apart from other tunneling rodents like  moles.  They can dig 1-3 mounds per day reason behind the fact of why you want to eradicate gophers immediately on your yard.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is typically done by a gopher specialist pest control company with knowledge of how to get rid of gophers for your house.  Always check that they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not only a structural license.

Damage and why we need Removal

Gophers consume 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 plants because they are young, un-established and it does not} take a lot for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Turf is also highly effected by gophers with damage from both the eating of the lawn and the dirt pushed on top and sitting on the grass which kills it.

Large trees can take chewing for a little bit so not to worry.  Smaller trees can be killed by a gopher in a short time because the root system supplying the life to the tree are undeveloped.  You will see certain branches of trees or bushes begin to die off when gophers are damaging 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 nutrients to that part of the tree 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 usually operated by a service dedicated to gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the cost of the blaster.

Burrow fumigants are extremely useful but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed experts like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the flares from the Home Depot 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 technique to use for each situation and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective removal 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 down the opening.  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 begin to be concerned about the water bill in North Hollywood and shut off the water off.

Repellers 

There are no repellents in North Hollywood available at the present time that have been shown 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 no one would be reading this site including you.

Keep gophers out of your garden using physical barriers can be effective for small projects. Any large project, such as placing fencing around the perimeter of your backyard would be cost prohibitive. Plus this would at best only give short-term control. Eventually gophers find a way in. 

Above ground flower 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 before filling with soil in your yard.
