Gophers are one of the three rodents that can do damage to your Waldorf, MD yard. Gophers, moles, and voles are all known for their digging and tunneling. Gophers are the worst of the three. They can destroy a yard and garden in a very short amount of time.
To fully remove gophers from your yard, you need to contact Barefoot Pest Control. Our expert technicians can help walk you through the proper gopher removal steps. After we are finished, you will never have to deal with gopher damage again.
Before you learn how to stop a gopher infestation, you need to be able to identify them. Gophers, moles, and voles are often mistaken for one another. They do, however, have some very unique characteristics.
Gophers, unlike moles and voles, can see. Their eyes will adjust to light and they will occasionally come above ground to hunt for food. Gopher's teeth are quite large, and they protrude from the gopher's mouth. A gopher's fur will be brown. They often have a white patch of fur on their chest.
Gophers are very distinctive because of their size. They will grow from six to thirteen inches in length. They can weigh up to around 2.2 lbs.
There are several different species of gopher. Most of the larger species of gopher will live from one to three years. Pocket gophers are much smaller. They live five years on average.
All gophers, no matter the species, are herbivores. They eat plant material. It is their diet that most likely led them to your Waldorf yard. Gophers will eat all plants, vegetables, fruit, and even the roots of trees.
If you have a large yard or, even better, garden, then you will attract gophers. These rodents are also looking for shelter and water. Yard with water sources, such as ponds, lakes, or rivers, will attract gophers. Gophers live in dirt mounds. So, if you have a protected area, plenty of food, and a water source, you can easily have a gopher problem.
It is very important to remove gophers from your yard. They cause two main types of damage. The first is structural. Gopher tunnels are typically far under the ground. You will not be able to see them from the surface. But, they will undermine the integrity of your ground. If you don't want to have small cave-ins in your yard, you need to remove the gophers.
Also, gophers eat plant roots as they tunnel. They are experts at killing most of the vegetation in your yard. They will even eat the roots of trees, which will kill those as well. To keep your yard looking nice and your plants alive, the gophers have to go.
Gophers can be very hard to completely remove from a yard. They need to be trapped and released far away so that they do not find their way back to their burrows. For gopher extermination, contact Barefoot Pest Control.
