Pocket gophers are destructive diggers that can be a nightmare for property owners. They use their sharp claws and teeth to excavate underground tunnels and burrows, which can quickly lead to extreme lawn damage. Pocket gophers get their name from the fur-lined cheek pouches that they use to transport food to their burrows.

Pocket gophers thrive in a variety of environments and a range of altitudes. Because they are fossorial and live underground, they prefer moist, porous soils with good drainage. Plenty of vegetation is also favored, as gophers eat plants and use them for structure and protection.

Within their home ranges, gophers dig extensive burrow systems. These systems are equipped with travel runs, drainage tunnels and chambers for living, eating and excreting waste.

Gophers are one of the common species of wildlife that we are called upon to control. Gophers can be found living in at lawns and landscapes and Gophers also take up residence under porches and patios. Gophers create tunnels underground and “push up” the dirt that is excavated and deposit it on the surface of your lawn or landscape. Gophers commonly eat the roots of plants and shrubs.

Gopher control and removal should be initiated as soon as the animal has been discovered living in this area as Gophers will chew the roots from plants, trees and shrubs thus effectively killing them. Expensive landscaping can be ruined quickly by this very small animal. They are often called by their first name, the Pocket Gopher.

Gopher control and removal should only be attempted by people who understand the behavior of this animal. AAAC Wildlife Removal is your local professional that can get rid of your Gopher.
