Almost all damage is almost always to new plants because immature, un-established therefore it does not require a good deal gnawing for the gopher to destroy or devour it. Lawn is additionally exceptionally impacted by gophers with damages from both the feeding on of the grass and also the earth shoved on top along with staying on top of the lawn which smothers it.

Giant trees could take biting for a little bit so no worries. Smaller trees can be destroyed by way of gopher immediately since the roots offering the life for your tree are immature.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are almost always plugged like in the picture above. This helps to tell them apart from other tunneling rodents like  moles.  They can make 1-3 mounds per day which is why you want to remove gophers immediately on your landscape.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is normally done by a professional pest control company with experience with how to remove gophers for your house.  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.

Damage 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 plants because they are young, un-established and it doesn’tdoes not} take a lot for a gopher to destroy or eat it.  Turf is also very effected by gophers with damage from both the eating of the turf and the dirt pushed on top and sitting on the lawn which smothers it.

Large trees can take gnawing for a little bit so not to worry.  Smaller trees can be killed by a gopher right away because the roots 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 supplying that part of the plant is damaged or killed by the gopher and no longer supplying life to that part of the plant you are growing in.

The most effective control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, baiting, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are techniques that a home owner can use with limited success. Burrow Blasting is usually operated by a company serious about gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the cost of the equipment.

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

Poison baits used by agriculture pest control professionals 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 technique to use for each property and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective control of gophers.

Using water to flush them out 

Flooding can work on farms where the whole 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 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 think about about the cost of water in Artesia and shut off the water off.

Repellent 

No repellents in Artesia available at the present time that have been proved to provide good Pest Control Service For Gophers. Several plants, such as gopher purge and cantor bean have been said to offer protection, but these claims have never been proved.   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 perimeter of your backyard would cost too much. Plus this would at best only give short-term control. Eventually gophers find a way in. 

Above ground planter beds can be protected by placing 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.
