Gophers are a serious problem for anyone who values their property’s agriculture, landscaping, and plant growth. Although gophers seem cute and harmless, anyone who has ever had gophers present and active on their property finds them otherwise. Here at Smith’s Pest Management, we offer effective and reliable services to manage gopher activity on your property year-round.

Damage Gophers Cause

By nature, gophers are herbivores, meaning they seek out and eat roots, trees, shrubs, grass, and other plants. This can be a major problem if you have agriculture or gardens around your home or business. On top of this, gophers are pests that prefer to remain underground as much as possible. They do this by digging complex tunnel systems beneath yards and across properties. These tunnel systems can ruin lawns and damage driveways leaving home and business owners with sometimes tens of thousands of dollars worth of damage after just one summer of gopher activity.

Why It Can Be Difficult To Prevent & Exclude Gophers

Without the proper knowledge of gophers habits and exclusion techniques to trap and remove gophers, keeping gophers away from trees, shrubs, and other landscape can be a difficult task. In addition, the use of store-bought chemicals can pose a threat to more than just gophers, especially if used improperly. For this reason, it will always be wiser and yield better results to hire a gopher trapping professional who uses non-toxic and effective solutions.
