Los Angeles Gopher Control

We Get Rid of Gophers.

Gophers can present a major problem for homeowners in Los Angeles. It is not uncommon for these pests to cause thousands of dollars in damage to landscaping and vegetation. Beyond the damage caused by these pests, they can also cause homeowners enormous amounts of stress.
Pocket Gopher

Pocket Gophers are the most common gophers and can tear up a landscape in no time!

    • Gophers present serious problems for property owners and renters year round not just in certain seasons.
    • They tend to be most severe in the spring and fall and in locations with rich, moist soil.
    • Gophers are vegetarians capable of quick and extensive destruction to roots, seeds, bulbs and other landscape plants
Squirrels and gophers can cause hundreds, even thousands of dollars in property damage. Ground squirrels and gophers burrowing under improvements can create serious problems.

Squirrels and gophers can cause hundreds, even thousands of dollars in property damage. Ground squirrels and gophers burrowing under improvements can create serious problems.

  • Gophers eat approximately 60% of their body weight per day!
  • They favor tree bark, particularly that of stone fruits, and can girdle trees, but they will eat all types of vegetation.
Damage from Gophers include the following:
  • Economic losses in lawn and garden plantings, such as valued roses or other flowers.
  • Destruction of young trees and crops including gardens and saplings.
  • Erosion that may undermine, offset or crack structures such as walkways and in-ground pools. In extreme situations even building foundations can be affected.
Pink Impatiens

As squirrels and gophers burrow, they damage roots, kill plants, and ruin landscapes. Gophers will pull down your prized plant – right by the roots!

  • Psychological stress, knowing that your property is constantly being damaged by out of control gophers. Additionally, wild attempts at self-treatments, leading to severe ground pollution and poisoning of non-target animals can cause additional stress.
With both structural and landscape / agricultural licensing, Hearts Pest Management has been able to bundle effective Los Angeles Gopher Treatment with a variety of home and garden services. We offers a two stage solution, involving a remediation program and warranty for the existing gopher infestation, followed by a maintenance program due to the potential for re-infestation from neighboring yards, canyons or fields. Due to regulatory changes from the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), residential properties, hospital, day care and day care grounds can no longer be treated by ground fumigation, with the exception of athletic fields. In non-residential settings, ground fumigation can occur when treatments are done 100 feet beyond inhabited structures. While this ruling makes treatment more difficult, more time consuming and expensive for both customers and your pest control company, we support this new EPA ruling enacted to further safeguard the public.

See this EPA announcement on the use of aluminum phosphide.

Are Gophers Nuisance Pests?

Gophers are more than nuisance pests. They can cause thousands of dollars in damage to your landscape. Don’t forget that they can also cause serious injury to people and pets. This is particularly problematic for the elderly, children who run and play, heavy individuals and pets. Gopher holes in dry patch need to be treated differently from well irrigated areas. Gopher mounds in dry patches need to be treated carefully so that the dirt does not collapse on the treatment product.   Call Hearts Pest Management, the pest control company that knows how to treat gophers and squirrels, while protecting the ones you love. Don’t let your pet or loved one damage an ankle or have a bad fall due to gopher activity.
