Any gopher control Burbank California needs is from the pocket gopher which is the same thing as a gopher. A lot of damages will be to new plants because they’re immature, un-established and so it does not require a lot gnawing for one gopher to destroy or consume it. Turf is likewise seriously impacted by gophers with destruction from both the consuming of the turf along with the soil pushed at the top as well as staying on the grass which will smothers it.

Giant trees will take gnawing for a little bit so no worries. Smaller trees could very well be killed by way of gopher promptly simply because the roots supplying the life for your tree are young. You might find distinct limbs of trees or bushes begin to die as soon as gophers are destroying them. This is a result of the roots giving life to that section of the plant is damaged or killed because of the gopher and no longer giving life for that section of the plant you’re raising.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are almost always stuffed wth dirt like in the picture above. This helps to differentiate them from other burrowing rodents like  voles.  They can make 1-3 mounds a day leading to why you want to eradicate gophers immediately on your yard.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is commonly done by a gopher specialist pest control company with background in how to eliminate gophers for your home.  Always check that 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 consume plants, roots of trees, ornamental flowers and vegetables on your garden – if it’s a plant they most likely will eatwll consume|like} it.  Most damage is to new plants because they are young, un-established and it does not} take a lot for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Grass is also very impacted by gophers with damage from both the eating of the turf and the soil pushed up and sitting on the turf which smothers it.

Big trees can take gnawing for a while 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 notice certain branches of trees or bushes begin 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 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 service dedicated to gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the expense of the machine.

Burrow fumigants are very useful but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed technicians like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the smoke bombs from the nursery which are seldom successful.

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 experience of what technique 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 be effective on farms where the whole crop area 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 typically never fills up the burrow and the gopher simply raises his head above the water line until you begin to worry about the water bill in Burbank and shut it off.

Repellent 

No repellents in Burbank 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 authenticated.   If they really worked to get rid of gophers no one would be reading this site including you.

Keep gophers out of your garden 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. At some point gophers find a way in. 

Raised flower 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.
