60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

A gopher control Sun Valley Ca . needs is from the pocket gopher that is exactly the same as a gopher. A lot of destruction will be to new plants since they’re young, un-established plus it won’t require a lot gnawing for that gopher to destroy or consume it. Turf can be exceptionally impacted by gophers with destruction from both the feeding on the grass plus the earth pushed at the top as well as residing on the turf which smothers it.

Giant trees takes eating for a while so don’t worry. Smaller trees could very well be killed by way of gopher right away since the roots supplying the life to the tree are young. You will see distinct limbs of trees or bushes begin to die off when ever gophers are harming them. This is due to the roots giving life for that area of the plant is impaired or killed by the gopher and without any longer supplying life for that section of the plant you’re growing.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are usually plugged like in the picture above. This helps to differentiate them from other burrowing rodents like  moles.  They can make 1-3 mounds a day which is why you want to remove gophers right away on your home.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is commonly done by a gopher specialist pest control company with experience with how to remove gophers for your home.  Always make sure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not just a license for structural pest control.

Destruction and why we need Removal

Gophers consume plants, roots of trees, flowers and vegetables on your lawn – 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 doesn’tdoes not} take much for a gopher to destroy or eat it.  Turf is also very effected by gophers with destruction from both the eating of the lawn and the soil pushed on top and staying on the grass which kills it.

Big trees can take chewing for a while so not to worry.  Smaller trees can be killed by a gopher in a short time because the roots supplying the life to the tree are undeveloped.  You will see certain branches of trees or bushes begin to dry out 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 plant you are growing in.

The most effective control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, poison baiting, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are techniques that a home owner can use with some success. Burrow Blasting is usually operated by a service dedicated to gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the expense of the machine.

Burrow fumigants are extremely effective but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed technicians like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the flares from the Lowes which are not very effective.

Poison baits available to 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 method to use for each situation and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective control of gophers.

Using water to force them out 

Flooding can work on farms where the entire field 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 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 start to be concerned about the water bill in Sun Valley and shut it off.

Repellent 

There are no repellents in Sun Valley 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 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 areas. Any large project, such as placing fencing around the area of your backyard would cost too much. Plus this would at best only provide 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.
