60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

A gopher control Placentia Ca . needs is from the pocket gopher which is the same as a gopher. Just about all destruction will be to new plants being that they are young, un-established but it will not take a lot of gnawing for a gopher to destroy or feed on it. Lawn can also be highly effected by gophers with damage from both consuming from the grass and also the earth moved at the top along with residing on top of the grass which smothers it.

Big trees will take eating for a little bit so no worries. Smaller trees are generally destroyed by way of a gopher quickly because roots supplying the life for the tree are young. You discover certain limbs of trees or bushes continue to die out as soon as gophers are damaging it. This is a result of the roots providing life to that portion of the plant is weakened or killed by the gopher and no longer supplying life for that section of the plant that you are growing.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are almost always plugged like in the picture above. This helps to differentiate them from other tunneling rodents like  voles.  They can make 1-3 mounds a day reason behind the fact of why you want to eliminate gophers right away on your home.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is normally done by a gopher specialist pest control company with experience with how to eradicate gophers for your home.  Always check that 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 reasons we need Removal

Gophers consume plants, tree roots, ornamental 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 eat it.  Lawn is also highly effected by gophers with damage from both the eating of the grass and the soil pushed on top and staying on the grass which smothers it.

Big trees can take gnawing for a while so not to worry.  Smaller trees can be destroyed by a gopher in a short time because the roots supplying the life to the tree are young.  You will see certain branches of trees or bushes begin to dry out 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 best control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, baiting, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are methods that a property owner can use with some success. Burrow Blasting is normally done by a company dedicated to gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of the expense of the machine.

Burrow fumigants are very effective but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed professionals like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the smoke bombs from the Home Depot which are seldom successful.

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

Using water to flush them out 

Flooding can work on farms where the whole 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 hose in 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 begin to worry about the cost of water in Placentia and shut off the water off.

Repellers 

No repellents in Placentia 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 yard using physical barriers can be effective for small projects. 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. Eventually 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.
