60-day Guarantee Gopher / Mole Service

A gopher control Yorba Linda California needs is from the pocket gopher that is exactly the same thing as a gopher. Just about all harm will be to new plants since they are immature, un-established and it doesn’t take much gnawing for a gopher to eliminate or consume it. Lawn can also be seriously effected by gophers with damages from both feeding on the turf along with the earth shoved at the top as well as residing on top of the turf which smothers it.

Giant trees will take nibbling for a while so no worries. Smaller trees might be killed by way of a gopher promptly given that the roots supplying the life to your tree are young. You will quickly realize particular limbs of trees or bushes start to die out any time gophers are damaging them. This is caused by the roots providing life to that section of the plant is impaired or destroyed by the gopher and no longer supplying life to that part of the plant that you are raising.

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 tunneling rodents like  moles.  They can dig one to three mounds per day leading to why you want to remove gophers immediately on your landscape.  Gopher removal (not gofer removal ) is usually done by a qualified pest control company with experience with how to get rid of gophers for your yard.  Always check that they have an agriculture pest control license as required by California state law in and not just a license for structural pest control.

Destruction and reasons we need Removal

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

Mature trees can take gnawing for a while so not to worry.  Smaller trees can be killed by a gopher right away because the root system supplying the nutrients to the tree are young.  You will see certain branches of trees or bushes begin to dry out when gophers are attacking them.  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 life to that part of the plant 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 techniques that a property owner can use with some success. Burrow Blasting is normally performed by a service serious about gophers (we have a Varmint Getter for burrow blasting) due to the cost of the machine.

Burrow fumigants are very effective but are restricted materials in, only available to and used by licensed techs like us. Burrow fumigants are not the same as the smoke bombs from the Lowes which are not very effective.

Poison baits used by agriculture pest control operators 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 removal of gophers.

Using water to wash them to surface 

Flooding can be effective 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 hose down 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 begin to panic about the water bill in Yorba Linda and shut off the water off.

Repellers 

No repellents in Yorba Linda 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 authenticated.   If they really worked to get rid of gophers no one would be reading this site including you.

Keeping gophers out of your yard using physical barriers can be effective for small areas. Any large project, such as placing fencing around the perimeter of your backyard would cost too much. 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.
