Lawn is additionally seriously effected by gophers with damages from both eating of the turf and the earth shoved on the top and staying on top of the grass which often smothers it.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are normally stuffed wth dirt like in the picture above. This helps to set them apart from other burrowing rodents like  ground squirrels.  They can create one to three mounds per day which is why you want to eradicate gophers right away on your home.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is normally done by a gopher specialist pest control company with background in how to eradicate gophers for your yard.  Always make sure 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, 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 small, un-established and it does not} take much for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Turf is also very impacted by gophers with damage from both the eating of the turf and the dirt pushed up and staying on the lawn which smothers it.

Large trees can take chewing 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 see certain branches of trees or bushes start to dry out when gophers are attacking it.  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 nutrients 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 methods that a property owner can use with some success. Burrow Blasting is typically performed by a company dedicated to gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of the expense of the equipment.

Burrow fumigants are very 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 plant store which are not very effective.

Poison baits used by agriculture pest control professionals 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 technique to use for each situation and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective control of gophers.

Using water to flush them to surface 

Flooding can work on farms where the entire crop area is flooded and there is nowhere for a gopher to escape.  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 tunnel system and the gopher simply raises his nose above the water line until you begin to worry about the cost of water in Placentia and shut off the water off.

Repellers 

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

Keeping gophers out of your lawn 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 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 below the bed and securing it to the 2×6 wood frame before filling with soil in your yard.
