Pocket gopher burrows are usually plugged like in the picture above. This helps to tell them apart from other tunneling rodents like  moles.  They can create 1-3 mounds every day reason behind the fact of why you want to eradicate gophers immediately on your yard.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is commonly done by a qualified pest control company with experience with how to remove gophers for your home.  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.

Damage and reasons we need Removal

Gophers consume plants, roots of trees, flowers and vegetables on your lawn – 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 doesn’tdoes not} take much for a gopher to destroy or consume it.  Lawn is also very impacted by gophers with damage from both the eating of the turf and the dirt pushed on top and staying on the lawn which kills it.

Large trees can take chewing for a while 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 young.  You will notice certain branches of trees or bushes begin to dry out when gophers are damaging 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 most effective control methods for gopher extermination are burrow fumigants, poison, burrow blasting, Tunnel Fill, and trapping. Trapping, Tunnel Fill and baiting are options that a home owner can use with limited success. Burrow Blasting is normally performed by a service dedicated to gophers (we use a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) because of the cost of the equipment.

Burrow fumigants are extremely useful 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 Home Depot which are seldom successful.

Poison baits used by agriculture pest control professionals are much higher strength and effective than what is available 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 control of gophers.

Using water to wash them to surface 

Flooding can work on farms where the entire 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 garden hose down the hole.  The problem is the water typically never fills up the tunnel system and the gopher simply raises his head above the water line until you begin to worry about the cost of water in Rowland Heights and shut off the water off.

Repellers 

There are no repellents in Rowland 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 control, but these claims have never been authenticated.   If they really worked to get rid of gophers you would not be reading this site.

Keeping 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. 

Raised flower 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 prior to adding soil in your yard.
