Gopher Removal in Los Angeles & Surrounding Areas

Gophers are small rat-like animals that live their entire life underground; with the exception of occasionally poking their heads out of the tunnel opening. They are extremely annoying and can cause thousands of dollars in damage to lawns and landscapes. They burrow tunnels and push the dirt to the surface to create large mounds. Gophers are looking for roots of plants and grass to eat. On occasion, they will encounter your underground sprinkler system and chew on the pipes creating flooding that may undermine the ground around your home.

Gophers have an average lifespan of three years and reproduce two to three times per year. When gophers abandon their tunnel system for whatever reason, other gophers will take advantage of the newly available space and take over the tunnel system. After all, it’s easier and less work to take over an existing tunnel system than digging a new one.
