Gopher Control, Trapping & Removal Services
We can rid you of Gopher problems safely and efficiently
Gophers are small burrowing rodents native to many parts of North and Central America. These creatures have cheek pouches where they can store nuts and other vegetation in their mouths. Unlike similar rodents, gophers do not hibernate during the winter, meaning that they are active all year wrong. Gophers create their homes inside burrows in the ground that consist of a series of tunnels. These tunnels can be used for storing food or moving from one place to another.
A gopher burrow is identified by the large mound of dirt that sits above the tunnel. If you have come across one of these burrows on your property, you may have an issue with gophers.

On average, pocket gophers are small creatures that weigh about half a pound and reach around 7 inches lengthwise. They are mostly brown in color and have typical rodent characteristics like small, beady eyes, tails, and protruding incisors. Gophers also have claws, which are curved and used for digging extensive tunnel systems, while their cheek pouches allow them to hoard food.
Gophers rarely leave their burrows to find food, although they do surface occasionally to eat plant bulbs, nuts, and fruits. The rodents typically prefer roots and pieces of plants that are accessible from underground, targeting crops like beets, turnips, and carrots.
Pocket gophers can live most anywhere soil is soft and easily excavated, and species are found in each region of North America. Even areas with seasonally cold climates support populations of gophers, as they adapt and burrow through snow. Gophers are rarely seen above ground. If sighted outside their tunnels, they are generally seeking food or digging new pathways. They rarely venture more than a few feet from the nearest tunnel entry.
