60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

A gopher control Anaheim Hills California needs is from the pocket gopher which is the same as a gopher. The majority damage is almost always to new plants because they’re young, un-established therefore it doesn’t take a great deal gnawing for the gopher to destroy or feed on it. Turf can be highly effected by gophers with damages from both the feeding on from the turf plus the dirt moved at the top along with staying on the turf which will smothers it.

Big trees can take biting for a while so don’t worry. Smaller trees can be killed by way of a gopher promptly because of the roots supplying the life for the tree are young. You discover certain branches of trees or bushes start to die out when gophers are harming them. This is a result of the roots giving life to that portion of the plant is impaired or destroyed from the gopher and no longer giving life to that section 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 tell them apart from other burrowing rodents like  moles.  They can create one to three mounds a day leading to why you want to eliminate gophers right away on your yard.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is commonly done by a qualified pest control company with experience with how to eliminate gophers for your lawn.  Always make sure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not only a license for structural pest control.

Damage and reasons we need Removal

Gophers eat plants, tree roots, ornamental 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 does not} take much for a gopher to destroy or eat it.  Grass is also highly effected by gophers with destruction from both the eating of the grass and the dirt pushed up and sitting on the lawn which kills it.

Mature trees can take chewing for a while so not to panic.  Smaller trees can be killed by a gopher in a short time because the root system supplying the nutrients to the tree are young.  You will see certain branches of trees or bushes begin to die off when gophers are attacking 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, poison, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are methods that a home owner can use with limited success. Burrow Blasting is normally operated by a company serious about gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of the cost of the blaster.

Burrow fumigants are very useful 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 plant store which are seldom successful.

Poison baits used by 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 method to use for each property and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective removal of gophers.

Using water to flush them to surface 

Flooding can work on farms where the whole 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 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 panic about the cost of water in Anaheim Hills and shut it off.

Repellers 

No repellents in Anaheim Hills available at the present time that have been shown to provide good Pest Control Service For Gophers. 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 no one would be reading this site including you.

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. 

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 prior to adding soil in your yard.
