Gophers are known for causing damage to residential and commercial landscape, lawns and gardens. Additionally gophers can cause damage to sidewalks, pavers and driveways because how their tunnels weaken the surfaces. Gophers create dirt mounds, holes and they kill plants. Gophers can also damage irrigation, utility lines and drip systems.
In order to prevent continual damage to your property, gophers need to be controled quickly and effectively. Gophers often create tunnels to adjacent properties, so it is likely that your neighbor has been visited by the gophers doing damage on your property. Even when your property has removed the gophers, your neighboring property still has them, new gopherswill eventually move into your property.
The way to identify a gopher from a mole is to look at the mounds. Gophers create a dirt mound in the shape of a fan moving outward from the center of the hole. Moles also leave similar looking mounds sometimes pushing up a lot of dirt making it hard for inexperienced homeowners to tell the difference between gophers and moles. One obvious sign of moles is their lifted ridges left behind as they travel through your yard.
Gophers are herbivores so they eat plants. If your plants are damaged or disappearing, a possible cause is you have a gopher. Gophers can make tunnels up to 200 yards in a year and move more than 2 tons of soil. It is now time to call Rodent Guys the best gopher exterminator.
Rodent Guys specialize in gopher exterminating using the most effective and safe methods on the market. Yes, we are the best gopher exterminators in Southern California. We licensed by the state of California to use restricted materials, as well as registered with the different counties to engage in pest control for hire.
In areas allowed for gopher eradication we use a chemical called Fumitoxin. It is a restricted material that is in a pellet form but when mixed with moisture dissolves and turns into phosphine gas. This gas will travel throughout the tunnel system, killing the gopher in the tunnel system. The chemical usually takes a few hours to activate and within about 48-72 hours the whole process is done. The gas will only work in a sealed tunnel system so there is no danger of harming humans or other animals. There is no after kill, which protects other animals that might eat the gopher if by chance it should come out of the tunnel system. Some customers ask about fumitoxin being organic or natural. Any product including soap and water is considered to be a pesticide when it is used to kill or control a pest. Again,there is no harmful residual of fumitoxin in the soil after 48-72 hours so this makes it as close to natural and organic as possible. Our treatment with fumitoxin is basically an underground fumigation with no harmful residues. This is the same product used to treat grain in silos used in cereal and various foods we eat every day.
Our initial gopher exterminator service consists of coming out to the site and treating all gopher activity and knocking down mounds. In addition to our initial service, we may recommend a monthly service. This helps to ensure that we treat and get rid of any new gopher activity before it has a chance to destroy the landscape. In these service visits, we are scheduled to come out and walk the entire property and treat any activity. This is all included in the price of the monthly service.
In areas where we are not allowed to treat with Fumitoxin we use strychnine 1.8% (restricted materail - must have license to buy/use) or lethal traps. Rodent Guys has many approaches depending on the soil conditions, terrain, budget and type of pest. We are Southen California's best gopher exterminators. Gopher extermination should be handled by a pro and we are the ones to call.
