We get rid of gophers in Los Gatos, CA every week; and here is why you should consider a gopher control program if you see gopher holes in your lawn.
In Los Gatos we see many lawns and sports fields that have suffered gopher damage. These old gopher tunnels have sunken over time, creating a maze of ankle-twisting depressions that are very hard to see after the lawn has been mowed. Smith’s Pest Management, your bay area gopher guy suggest we get rid of gophers in your lawns and sports fields for the safety of children and adults.
See the video on why it is important to get rid of gophers.
As you can see, without a gopher control program, these lawns have become infested with gophers and moles. There are countless depressions that a soccer player could break an ankle in.
The best way to get rid of gophers in a Los Gatos sports field is with traps. The process of gopher trapping eliminates the need for poison, and is safe to the players because the traps are deep underground. When we are performing gopher control on sports fields, the lawns can continue to be used because the players will never contact our gopher traps. We come check the traps for gophers or moles in Los Gatos, CA after a just few days and remove the dead pests leaving your lawn gopher-free.
The gopher tunnels and gopher holes should be filled in and flattened by your maintenance crew and grass seed should be planted to restore the safety and beauty of your lawn after all the gophers are gone. If you have moles in your Los Gatos, CA garden, the process is very similar. We use underground mole traps without the need for poison.
