Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

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 make one to three mounds per day which is why you want to eliminate gophers immediately on your yard.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is normally done by a professional pest control company with knowledge of how to eradicate gophers for your yard.  Always check that they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not only a structural license.

Destruction and reasons 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 plants because they are young, un-established and it does not} take much for a gopher to destroy or eat it.  Grass is also very impacted by gophers with damage from both the eating of the grass and the soil pushed on top and staying on the lawn which smothers it.

Mature trees can take gnawing for a while so not to worry.  Smaller trees can be destroyed by a gopher right away because the root system supplying the life to the tree are undeveloped.  You will notice certain branches of trees or bushes begin to dry out when gophers are damaging 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 best control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, baiting, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are methods that a property owner can use with limited success. Burrow Blasting is normally performed by a company serious about gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the cost of the blaster.

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

Poison baits used by agriculture pest control operators 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 be effective on farms where the entire 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 hose down the hole.  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 begin to worry about the water bill in Fullerton and shut off the water off.

Repellers 

No repellents in Fullerton 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 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 provide short-term control. At some point gophers find a way in. 

Above ground 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 before filling with soil in your yard.
