A gopher control Cypress Ca . needs is from the pocket gopher which is exactly the same as a gopher. Just about all destruction is almost always to new plants because young, un-established and it also doesn’t require a whole lot gnawing for that gopher to destroy or eat it. Turf is also exceptionally effected by gophers with destruction from both the eating from the grass and also the dirt forced on top and residing on top of the lawn which smothers it.

Giant trees will take gnawing for a little bit so no worries. Smaller trees may be killed by a gopher quickly simply because the roots offering the life to the tree are immature. You will see distinct limbs of trees or bushes begin to die off as soon as gophers are damaging it. This is due to the roots providing life to that part of the plant is compromised or destroyed by the gopher and no longer providing life to that section of the plant you are raising.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are normally filled with dirt like in the picture above. This helps to set them apart from other tunneling rodents like  moles.  They can make one to three mounds per day which is why you want to eradicate gophers immediately on your home.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is typically done by a gopher specialist pest control company with knowledge of how to eradicate gophers for your home.  Always check that they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not just a structural license.

Damage and reasons we need Removal

Gophers eat plants, roots of trees, ornamental flowers and vegetables on your lawn – if it’s a plant they probably 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 consume it.  Lawn is also very effected by gophers with damage from both the eating of the grass and the dirt pushed up and staying on the grass which smothers it.

Mature trees can take gnawing for a little bit so not to panic.  Smaller trees can be killed by a gopher in a short time because the root system supplying the life to the tree are undeveloped.  You will notice certain branches of trees or bushes start 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 tree you are growing in.

The common control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, poison baiting, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are methods that a property owner can use with some success. Burrow Blasting is typically done by a service serious about gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the expense of the blaster.

Burrow fumigants are extremely effective but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed experts 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 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 method to use for each property and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective removal of gophers.

Using water to force 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 attempt to flood the gopher with a hose in the opening.  The problem is the water typically never fills up the tunnel system and the gopher simply raises his head above the water line until you start to be concerned about the water bill in Cypress and shut it off.

Repellent 

There are no repellents in Cypress 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 perimeter of your backyard would be cost prohibitive. Plus this would at best only provide short-term control. At some point gophers find a way in. 

Above ground flower 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.
