60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

A gopher control San Bernardino California needs is from the pocket gopher that is exactly the same as a gopher. A lot of damages is to new plants as they are young, un-established and so it doesn’t take a lot of gnawing for the gopher to destroy or devour it. Lawn can be exceptionally effected by gophers with damage from both eating from the grass plus the dirt pushed on the top and residing on top of the lawn which usually smothers it.

Big trees normally takes biting for a little bit so no worries. Smaller trees could be destroyed by way of gopher immediately because the roots supplying the life for the tree are young. You will see certain limbs of trees or bushes start to die off whenever gophers are destroying them. This is caused by the roots providing life for that section of the plant is damaged or killed by your gopher and no longer giving life for that part of the plant you will be 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 differentiate them from other burrowing rodents like  moles.  They can create one to three mounds a day which is why you want to get rid of gophers immediately on your yard.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is usually done by a professional pest control company with experience with how to kill gophers for your house.  Always check that 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 reasons we need Removal

Gophers consume 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 vegetation because they are young, un-established and it does not} take much for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Turf is also highly impacted by gophers with destruction from both the eating of the turf and the soil pushed on top and sitting on the turf which kills it.

Big trees can take gnawing for a little bit so not to panic.  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 eating it.  This is caused by the roots supplying 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 options that a home owner can use with some success. Burrow Blasting is typically operated by a service dedicated to gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the expense of the equipment.

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 nursery which are not very effective.

Poison baits used by agriculture pest control companies are much higher concentration and effective than what is obtainable 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 flush them to surface 

Flooding can be effective 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 attempt to flood the gopher with a hose in the opening.  The problem is the water typically never fills up the tunnel system and the gopher simply raises his nose above the water line until you begin to think about about the cost of water in San Bernardino and shut it off.

Repellent 

No repellents in San Bernardino 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 control, but these claims have never been proved.   If they really worked to get rid of gophers you would not be reading this site.

Keep 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 give short-term control. At some point 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.
