Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are almost always plugged like in the picture above. This helps to differentiate them from other tunneling rodents like  moles.  They can dig one to three mounds a day reason behind the fact of why you want to eliminate gophers right away on your home.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is usually done by a professional pest control company with background in how to eliminate gophers for your house.  Always check that 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 why we need Removal

Gophers consume plants, tree roots, ornamental flowers and vegetables on your yard – if it’s a plant they probably will eatwll consume|like} it.  Most damage is to new vegetation because they are young, un-established and it doesn’tdoes not} take a lot for a gopher to destroy or eat it.  Grass is also highly effected by gophers with destruction from both the eating of the lawn and the dirt pushed up and staying on the lawn which smothers it.

Big trees can take gnawing for a little bit so not to worry.  Smaller trees can be killed by a gopher in a short time because the roots supplying the life to the tree are undeveloped.  You will see certain branches of trees or bushes start to die off when gophers are attacking it.  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 home owner can use with limited success. Burrow Blasting is typically operated by a service serious about gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of the expense of the equipment.

Burrow fumigants are extremely effective but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed pros like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the flares from the hardware store which are not very effective.

Poison baits available to agriculture pest control operators are much higher concentration 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 situation and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective removal of gophers.

Using water to flush them out 

Flooding can work 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 water holse in the opening.  The problem is the water typically 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 cost of water in La Crescenta and shut it off.

Repellers 

No repellents in La Crescenta 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 no one would be reading this site including you.

Keep 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 offer short-term control. Eventually gophers find a way in. 

Raised planter 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.
