A gopher control Riverside County California needs is from the pocket gopher that is the exact same as a gopher. A lot of destruction is to new plants since they’re young, un-established and it does not take very much gnawing for a gopher to eliminate or consume it. Lawn is seriously effected by gophers with damages from both the consuming on the turf as well as the earth moved at the top and residing on top of the turf which usually smothers it.

Giant trees will take eating for a while so not to worry. Smaller trees may be destroyed by way of gopher right away because the roots supplying the life for the tree are immature. You discover distinct branches of trees or bushes start to die out when ever gophers are harming it.

Gopher Control in Los Angeles, CA

Gopher mounds with exit hole

Gopher Mound

Pocket gopher burrows are almost always stuffed wth dirt like in the picture above. This helps to differentiate them from other burrowing rodents like  ground squirrels.  They can dig one to three mounds a day reason behind the fact of why you want to get rid of gophers immediately on your yard.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is commonly done by a professional pest control company with background in how to kill gophers for your yard.  Always ensure they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not just a license for structural pest control.

Damage and why we need Removal

Gophers eat plants, roots of trees, ornamental flowers and vegetables on your lawn – if it’s a plant they most likely will eatwll consume|like} it.  Most damage is to new vegetation because they are small, un-established and it doesn’tdoes not} take much for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Grass is also very effected by gophers with damage from both the eating of the turf and the soil pushed on top and staying on the lawn which smothers it.

Big trees can take chewing 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 see 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 common control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, baiting, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are options that a property owner can use with some success. Burrow Blasting is typically operated by a service dedicated to gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of the cost 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 concentration 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 property and proper placement of fumigants and or bait for effective removal of gophers.

Using water to force them out 

Flooding can work on farms where the whole field 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 water holse down the hole.  The problem is the water usually never fills up the burrow and the gopher simply raises his head above the water line until you begin to worry about the cost of water in Riverside County and shut it off.

Repellent 

There are no repellents in Riverside County 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 control, but these claims have never been authenticated.   If they really worked to get rid of gophers no one would be reading this site including you.

Keeping gophers out of your garden using physical barriers can be effective for small areas. Any large project, such as placing fencing around the area of your backyard would cost too much. Plus this would at best only provide 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.
