Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are almost always filled with dirt like in the picture above. This helps to tell them apart from other tunneling rodents like  voles.  They can create one to three mounds every day leading to why you want to eradicate gophers immediately on your landscape.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is typically done by a qualified pest control company with knowledge of how to get rid of gophers for your lawn.  Always make sure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not only a license for structural pest control.

Destruction and reasons we need Removal

Gophers eat plants, roots of trees, flowers and vegetables on your garden – if it’s a plant they probably will eatwll consume|like} it.  Most damage is to new plants because they are small, un-established and it doesn’tdoes not} take a lot for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Grass is also very effected by gophers with destruction from both the eating of the lawn and the soil pushed on top and staying on the grass which kills it.

Large trees can take gnawing for a little bit so not to panic.  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 start to dry out 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 tree you are growing in.

The common control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, baiting, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are options that a home owner can use with limited success. Burrow Blasting is normally operated by a service dedicated to gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of the expense of the blaster.

Burrow fumigants are extremely useful 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 nursery which are seldom successful.

Poison baits used by 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 knowledge 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 work on farms where the whole field is flooded and there is nowhere for a gopher to escape.  On your property you are going to try to flood the gopher with a water holse down the opening.  The problem is the water usually never fills up the tunnel system and the gopher simply raises his nose above the water line until you begin to think about about the water bill in Fontana and shut it off.

Repellers 

No repellents in Fontana 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 control, 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.

Keeping gophers out of your garden using physical barriers can be effective for small areas. Any large project, such as placing fencing around the area 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. 

Raised flower beds can be protected by fixing a 1/4 inch galvanized hardware cloth below the bed and securing it to the 2×6 wood frame before filling with soil in your yard.
