60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

Any gopher control Upland Ca needs is from the pocket gopher that is the exact same as a gopher. The majority damages is almost always to new plants because they are young, un-established and it also will not require a great deal of gnawing for the gopher to eliminate or feed on it. Lawn can be seriously effected by gophers with damage from both the consuming of the grass as well as the dirt pushed on top as well as staying on top of the turf which will smothers it.

Giant trees could take gnawing for a while so don’t worry. Smaller trees are usually destroyed by the gopher quickly because of the roots supplying the life to your tree are immature. You discover distinct limbs of trees or bushes begin to die when gophers are destroying them. This is the result of the roots giving life for that area of the plant is impaired or killed because of the gopher and no longer giving life to that part of the plant you’re raising.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are normally filled with dirt like in the picture above. This helps to tell them apart from other burrowing rodents like  moles.  They can make 1-3 mounds a day leading to why you want to get rid of gophers immediately on your home.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is usually done by a qualified pest control company with experience with how to eradicate gophers for your yard.  Always ensure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not merely a structural license.

Damage and why we need Removal

Gophers eat plants, tree roots, 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 small, un-established and it doesn’tdoes not} take much for a gopher to destroy or eat it.  Turf is also very impacted by gophers with destruction from both the eating of the lawn and the soil pushed on top and sitting on the lawn which smothers it.

Mature trees can take gnawing for a while so not to worry.  Smaller trees can be killed by a gopher right away because the root system supplying the nutrients to the tree are young.  You will see certain branches of trees or bushes start to die off when gophers are eating 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 nutrients to that part of the plant you are growing in.

The common control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, bait, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are options that a property owner can use with limited success. Burrow Blasting is usually done by a service serious about gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the expense of the blaster.

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 available to agriculture pest control professionals 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 out 

Flooding can be effective 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 down the opening.  The problem is the water usually never fills up the burrow and the gopher simply raises his head above the water line until you start to worry about the cost of water in Upland and shut it off.

Repellers 

There are no repellents in Upland 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 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 yard using physical barriers can be effective for small projects. Any large project, such as placing fencing around the area of your backyard would be cost prohibitive. Plus this would at best only give 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.
