Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are almost always plugged like in the picture above. This helps to set them apart from other tunneling rodents like  ground squirrels.  They can make 1-3 mounds per day reason behind the fact of why you want to eradicate gophers immediately on your yard.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is usually done by a gopher specialist pest control company with experience with how to kill gophers for your lawn.  Always check that they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not merely a structural license.

Damage and why 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 does not} take a lot for a gopher to destroy or eat it.  Lawn is also highly effected by gophers with destruction from both the eating of the grass and the dirt pushed on top and sitting on the grass which smothers it.

Large trees can take chewing for a little bit so not to panic.  Smaller trees can be destroyed 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 begin to die off 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 life to that part of the tree you are growing in.

The best control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, bait, 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 usually performed by a company serious about gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the expense of the machine.

Burrow fumigants are very 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 nursery which are not very effective.

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 experience of what method to use for each property and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective control of gophers.

Using water to flush them to surface 

Flooding can be effective on farms where the whole 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 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 start to worry about the cost of water in Hacienda Heights and shut it off.

Repellers 

No repellents in Hacienda Heights 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 relief, but these claims have never been proved.   If they really worked to get rid of gophers you would not be reading this site.

Keep gophers out of your yard using physical barriers can be effective for small areas. Any large project, such as placing fencing around the perimeter of your backyard would be cost prohibitive. Plus this would at best only offer short-term control. Eventually gophers find a way in. 

Above ground flower beds can be protected by placing 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.
