Stop Pocket Gophers from invading your yard

Pocket GopherA Pocket Gopher measures 5 to 14 inches in length.  Their color can range from black to light brown and even white.  They have a set of two fur-lined pouches outside of their mouth that are used to carry food.

There are multiple methods of Pocket Gopher control.  One way to accomplish this is to use bait.  A material is injected into the tunnels for the Gophers to eat.  Another method is the use of smoke cartridges.  The cartridges release a deadly gas into the burrow systems.

Pocket Gophers are extremely adapted to under ground living.  They dig networks of tunnels under lawns and gardens.  They can be identified by the horseshoe shaped mounds they create when pushing dirt from the tunnels.  Pocket Gophers are most active in the spring and fall when temperatures are right.

Pocket Gophers can have tunnels that extend over 100 feet.  Having an issue controlling Pocket Gophers?
