60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

Any gopher control Pacoima Ca . needs is from the pocket gopher that is the same as a gopher. Just about all harm is almost always to new plants since they are young, un-established but it doesn’t take a whole lot gnawing for a gopher to eliminate or consume it. Turf can be exceptionally impacted by gophers with destruction from both feeding on on the grass and also the earth shoved on top as well as staying on the turf which often smothers it.

Giant trees usually takes nibbling for a little bit so don’t worry. Smaller trees are generally destroyed by way of gopher right away simply because the roots offering the life for your tree are immature. You might find particular limbs of trees or bushes start to die off when ever gophers are harming them. This is due to the roots issuing life to that portion of the plant is harmed or killed from the gopher and without any longer providing life for that part of the plant you will be raising.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are usually stuffed wth dirt like in the picture above. This helps to differentiate them from other tunneling rodents like  voles.  They can dig 1-3 mounds per day leading to why you want to remove gophers immediately on your landscape.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is normally done by a qualified pest control company with experience with how to remove gophers for your house.  Always ensure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not merely a structural license.

Destruction and why we need Removal

Gophers consume plants, tree roots, 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 young, un-established and it doesn’tdoes not} take a lot for a gopher to destroy or eat it.  Turf is also highly effected by gophers with damage from both the eating of the lawn and the soil pushed up and staying on the lawn which smothers it.

Big 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 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 plant 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 options 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 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 smoke bombs from the Lowes which are not very effective.

Poison baits available to agriculture pest control companies are much higher strength and effective than what is available 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 work 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 garden hose in the opening.  The problem is the water usually never fills up the burrow and the gopher simply raises his nose above the water line until you start to think about about the cost of water in Pacoima and shut off the water off.

Repellent 

There are no repellents in Pacoima 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 garden using physical barriers can be effective for small projects. Any large project, such as placing fencing around the area of your backyard would be cost prohibitive. Plus this would at best only give short-term control. Eventually gophers find a way in. 

Above ground planter 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.
