Being destructive diggers, Pocket Gophers can be terrifying for house owners. With the help of their sharp claws and teeth, they dig underground tunnels and burrows which can cause severe damage to your home. Pocket gophers derive their name from the fur-lined cheek pouches which they use for carrying food to their burrows.

Pocket gophers can live in diverse environments and a range of heights. As they are fossorial and reside underground, they mostly prefer moist, porous soils with good drainage. Sufficient vegetation is also favorable for them as they consume plants and use them for protection and structure.

Within their dwelling, gophers dig burrow systems on a large scale. These systems are well equipped for travel runs, drainage tunnels and chambers for a living, eating and excreting waste.

We are called to control Gophers which are one of the most common species of wildlife. They can be found residing in the lawns, landscapes and they also make homes under the porches and patios. Gophers create underground tunnels and throw out the dirt by digging and placing it on your lawn or landscape. Most commonly Gophers eat roots of the plants and shrubs.

Gopher control and elimination should be executed as soon as the animal has been found residing in this area as Gophers will chew down the roots of the plants, trees, and shrubs thereby killing them. Expensive landscaping can be destroyed instantly by this animal. Often they are being called by their first name “ the Pocket Gopher”.
