Although gophers look cute from a distance, their damage to your yard can be frustrating. After all, these rodents create networks of tunnel systems to protect themselves and collect food. If you’re dealing with a gopher infestation on your property, don’t touch it. These pests spend most of their lives underground and away from humans so they may bite if they are frightened. The best way to deal with them is to contact a professional. Eden Advanced Pest Technologies uses cutting-edge technology to target gopher problems. We’ll take care of your gopher problem quickly and effectively!
Signs of Gophers
While gophers, moles, and voles all burrow, they’re all entirely different animals. Before treating the pest, it’s important to identify which you’re dealing with. Gophers, for one, are the largest of the three and cause the most damage. Their holes will leave behind fan-shaped mounds of dirt whereas mole mounds appear circular and have a plug in the middle.
Risks of Gophers
When gophers find their way onto properties, they aren’t intentionally trying to cause harm. They simply want to find a home and eat. However, they can become a problem. Gophers are very territorial and can create large burrow systems that exceed 2,000 square feet. These tunnels can eventually cause parts of your yard to cave in, leading to falling hazards.
Because gophers are strictly vegetarians, they will also wreak havoc on your grass, plants, and other vegetation. And while it’s rare for gophers to spread rabies, you should be aware that these pests can still spread the viral infection.
Gopher tunnels are usually at least 6” underground with a burrow that’s several feet deeper. This is why it’s best to contact a pest control company if you have gophers on your property. At Eden Advanced Pest Technologies, we use an industry-leading device to remove gophers. It’s called the “Gopher X”.
This low-hazard device pushes heated smoke and carbon monoxide through the animals tunnels for about 3 minutes, ultimately causing asphyxiation.
The Gopher X doesn’t use poisons that can kill or harm other animals, pets or produce. Nor does it disrupt your land.
