Gopher Control is among our most requested pest removal services at the Bug Guys Pest Control. Although gophers do have a few good points in their favor, such as their ability to keep backyard and garden soil well aerated, there are plenty more reasons why responsible home and property owners call on our professional gopher control service for their prompt removal.


Identifying A Gopher Problem

Are you curious if you have a gopher problem at your Coachella Valley property? You won’t always see a gopher in action, but rest assured they do make their presence known in a few ways. The issue is the holes they leave in the yard. If you have noticed multiple holes popping up, it could be a gopher problem. However, these are often confused with moles as well. Both animals have an elaborate underground network and make several entry points.

There are five species of gophers that call California home. Botta’s pocket gopher is typically the most encountered of the five species, and the ones we handle every day. They range from six to ten inches and spend most of their life underground. Most homeowners won’t see a gopher and will only notice the fresh soil mounds in the yard.

If you are unsure whether or not you have a gopher or mole problem, the Bug Guys Pest Control can answer this question. We know no one wants to live with a vermin problem, and we are here to help.

Why Gophers Are A Problem

The holes made by gophers pose an ongoing danger which can result in a twisted ankle, not only for humans but also for horses and other livestock. Gophers create an elaborate system of underground tunnels which can undermine the trees on your property, even causing tree trunks to collapse. Gophers can also wreak havoc on all the hard work you put into your garden because they love to chew on bark, fruit, vegetables, leaves, roots, and stems. They can make quick work of your landscaping, making it look pretty terrible in no time.

Another good reason to utilize our gopher control services is to eliminate the larger predators that usually find their way onto your property in search of a gopher snack, such as coyotes, weasels, skunks, badgers, foxes, and bobcats. And who needs the time and expense of repairing the telephone cables and water lines that gophers tend to chew on, causing an unwelcome interruption of service. The mounds their tunnels cause can also ruin lawnmower blades. In addition, the presence of gophers invites infestations of other pests, including fleas, ticks, mites, and lice. These pesky creatures can also be carriers of such dangerous diseases as rabies.

What attracts gophers to your yard?
Does your lawn look fantastic? Most yards that are well kept and look nice are excellent attractants for gophers. This is because the ecosystem of your yard is flourishing. This means that there are more available food sources for the gophers. They will rapidly reproduce and soon create tunnels under throughout the entire yard. Those that have gardens are more susceptible to gophers and moles.
Are gophers aggressive?
Most individuals don’t see gophers. What you will see is the mounds in the yard they leave behind as they are burrowing. If you happen to corner a gopher, they will bite. However, they will mainly do so when they feel threatened. Because their human interaction is limited, it is unlikely you will come across one. If you identify mounds in your yard, contact Bug Guys Pest Control for a safe removal service.
How do you get rid of gophers humanely?
At Bug Guys Pest Control, we believe in dealing with pests, including gophers in a humane manner. We use live animal trappings to catch gophers and then release them into the wild, off your property. Gophers are great for the ecosystem, and while they can be destructive to your yard, they do play a significant role in the system. Animal trapping is cost-effective and less labor-intensive.
