Need gopher removal in Orange County?
Let us help you out. Gophers are burrowing rodents that get their name from the fur-lined, external cheek pouches, or pockets, they use for carrying food and nesting materials. Gophers are well equipped for a digging, tunneling lifestyle. Their powerfully built forequarters, large-clawed front paws, fine, short fur that doesn’t cake in wet soils. Their small eyes and ears and highly sensitive facial whiskers assist with moving about in the dark. A gopher’s lips are also unusually adapted for their lifestyle. They can close them behind their four large incisor teeth to keep dirt out of their mouths when using their teeth for digging.
Gophers and Gardens
Gophers often invade yards and gardens. They feed on many garden crops, ornamental plants, vines, shrubs, and trees. A single gopher moving down a garden row can inflict considerable damage in a very short time. Gophers can also gnaw and damage plastic water lines and lawn sprinkler systems. Their tunnels can divert and carry off irrigation water, which leads to soil erosion.
- If you suspect a gopher in your backyard in Orange County, call a professional as soon as possible.
- Gopher families are territorial. Their average territory is approximately 40×40 to 50×50 square feet, which equates to about a 20-foot radius.
- Gophers are very active 365 days a year. Most of their feeding consists of plant parts below ground.
- The two most common diseases gophers carry are rabies and monkeypox. It’s better to assume gophers have rabies and have them removed professionally than try to remove them on your own and possibly expose you and your family to disease.
