60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

Any gopher control Corona California needs is from the pocket gopher which is the exact same as a gopher. A lot of harm is almost always to new plants since they are young, un-established plus it doesn’t require a great deal of gnawing for that gopher to destroy or feed on it. Lawn is seriously impacted by gophers with damages from both the feeding of the lawn and also the dirt pushed on top along with staying on the grass which will smothers it.

Big trees will take chewing for a while so no worries. Smaller trees are usually killed by the gopher promptly simply because the roots supplying the life for the tree are immature. You discover particular limbs of trees or bushes begin to die off whenever gophers are harming it. This is a result of the roots issuing life to that portion of the plant is damaged or killed by your gopher and without any longer giving life for 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 stuffed wth dirt like in the picture above. This helps to differentiate them from other tunneling rodents like  voles.  They can make 1-3 mounds every day which is why you want to get rid of gophers right away on your home.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is typically done by a professional pest control company with knowledge of how to eliminate gophers for your yard.  Always check that 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 eat plants, tree roots, flowers and vegetables on your garden – 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.  Lawn is also highly effected by gophers with damage from both the eating of the lawn and the soil pushed up and sitting on the grass which kills it.

Large trees can take chewing for a while so not to panic.  Smaller trees can be destroyed by a gopher right away because the roots supplying the nutrients to the tree are undeveloped.  You will notice certain branches of trees or bushes start to die off when gophers are attacking 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 best control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, poison, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are options that a home owner can use with some success. Burrow Blasting is normally performed by a service serious about gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of the expense of the machine.

Burrow fumigants are extremely 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 Home Depot which are seldom successful.

Poison baits available to agriculture pest control companies 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 situation and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective removal of gophers.

Using water to wash them out 

Flooding can work 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 water holse down the hole.  The problem is the water typically never fills up the burrow and the gopher simply raises his nose above the water line until you start to panic about the water bill in Corona and shut it off.

Repellers 

No repellents in Corona 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 proved.   If they really worked to get rid of gophers you would not be reading this site.

Keeping gophers out of your garden using physical barriers can be effective for small projects. Any large project, such as placing fencing around the area of your backyard would cost too much. Plus this would at best only offer short-term control. At some point gophers find a way in. 

Above ground planter beds can be protected by attaching 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.
