60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

Any gopher control San Bernardino County Ca needs is from the pocket gopher which is the exact same as a gopher. Almost all harm is to new plants since they’re immature, un-established plus it does not require a lot of gnawing for the gopher to destroy or consume it. Turf is also exceptionally effected by gophers with damage from both the feeding of the turf along with the earth shoved on the top and residing on the grass which unfortunately smothers it.

Giant trees takes biting for a little bit so don’t worry. Smaller trees can be destroyed by way of gopher right away considering that the roots supplying the life for your tree are young. You might find particular limbs of trees or bushes continue to die out any time gophers are destroying them. This is the result of the roots supplying life to that area of the plant is impaired or destroyed by the gopher and no longer providing life to that part of the plant that you are growing.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are usually filled with dirt like in the picture above. This helps to tell them apart from other burrowing rodents like  ground squirrels.  They can make 1-3 mounds per day which is why you want to eliminate gophers immediately on your landscape.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is normally done by a professional pest control company with experience with how to eradicate gophers for your house.  Always make sure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not merely a license for structural pest control.

Destruction and why we need Removal

Gophers consume plants, roots of trees, ornamental flowers and vegetables on your yard – 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 grass and the dirt pushed on top and staying on the grass which kills it.

Big trees can take gnawing for a little bit so not to panic.  Smaller trees can be killed by a gopher right away because the roots supplying the life to the tree are young.  You will notice certain branches of trees or bushes begin to die off when gophers are eating 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, 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 use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the expense of the equipment.

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

Poison baits used by agriculture pest control companies are much higher strength and effective than what is obtainable 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 removal of gophers.

Using water to wash them to surface 

Flooding can be effective on farms where the entire crop area is flooded and there is nowhere for a gopher to go.  On your property you are going to try to flood the gopher with a garden hose in the hole.  The problem is the water typically never fills up the burrow and the gopher simply raises his head above the water line until you begin to think about about the cost of water in San Bernardino County and shut it off.

Repellers 

There are no repellents in San Bernardino County 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 authenticated.   If they really worked to get rid of gophers no one would be reading this site including you.

Keep gophers out of your lawn 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 provide short-term control. At some point gophers find a way in. 

Above ground flower beds can be protected by placing 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.
