Any gopher control Cerritos Ca . needs is from the pocket gopher which is exactly the same as a gopher. A lot of damage will be to new plants being that they are immature, un-established and it also would not take much gnawing for the gopher to destroy or feed on it. Lawn can also be highly effected by gophers with damages from both the eating from the turf plus the soil shoved at the top as well as residing on top of the turf which often smothers it.

Giant trees will take nibbling for a little bit so don’t worry. Smaller trees could be killed because of a gopher quickly because the roots supplying the life to your tree are immature. You discover distinct limbs of trees or bushes start to die off when ever gophers are harming them. This is caused by the roots providing life to that section of the plant is compromised or destroyed from the gopher and no longer supplying life to that part of the plant you happen to be raising.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are normally plugged like in the picture above. This helps to set them apart from other tunneling rodents like  ground squirrels.  They can make one to three mounds per day leading to why you want to get rid of gophers immediately on your home.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is commonly done by a gopher specialist pest control company with experience with how to get rid of gophers for your yard.  Always ensure 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, ornamental flowers and vegetables on your yard – 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 a lot for a gopher to destroy or eat it.  Turf 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.

Big trees can take gnawing for a little bit 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 begin to dry out when gophers are damaging 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 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 techniques that a property owner can use with some success. Burrow Blasting is normally done by a service serious about gophers (we use 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 experts like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the flares from the plant store which are not very effective.

Poison baits used by agriculture pest control professionals are much higher concentration and effective than what is available to a homeowner.  The main reason to hire a gopher expert is the experience of what method to use for each situation and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective control of gophers.

Using water to wash them to surface 

Flooding can be effective on farms where the entire crop area is flooded and there is nowhere for a gopher to go.  On your property you are going to attempt to flood the gopher with a garden hose in the opening.  The problem is the water usually never fills up the tunnel system and the gopher simply raises his head above the water line until you start to panic about the cost of water in Cerritos and shut it off.

Repellent 

There are no repellents in Cerritos 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 you would not be reading this site.

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 give short-term control. At some point gophers find a way in. 

Raised planter beds can be protected by fixing 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.
