Gopher Control is among our most requested pest removal services at the Bug Guys Pest Control. Although gophers do have a few good points in their favor, such as their ability to keep backyard and garden soil well aerated, there are plenty more reasons why responsible home and property owners call on our professional gopher control service for their prompt removal.


Identifying A Gopher Problem

Are you curious if you have a gopher problem at your Coachella Valley property? You won’t always see a gopher in action, but rest assured they do make their presence known in a few ways. The issue is the holes they leave in the yard. If you have noticed multiple holes popping up, it could be a gopher problem. However, these are often confused with moles as well. Both animals have an elaborate underground network and make several entry points.

There are five species of gophers that call California home. Botta’s pocket gopher is typically the most encountered of the five species, and the ones we handle every day. They range from six to ten inches and spend most of their life underground. Most homeowners won’t see a gopher and will only notice the fresh soil mounds in the yard.

If you are unsure whether or not you have a gopher or mole problem, the Bug Guys Pest Control can answer this question. We know no one wants to live with a vermin problem, and we are here to help.

Why Gophers Are A Problem

The holes made by gophers pose an ongoing danger which can result in a twisted ankle, not only for humans but also for horses and other livestock. Gophers create an elaborate system of underground tunnels which can undermine the trees on your property, even causing tree trunks to collapse. Gophers can also wreak havoc on all the hard work you put into your garden because they love to chew on bark, fruit, vegetables, leaves, roots, and stems. They can make quick work of your landscaping, making it look pretty terrible in no time.

Another good reason to utilize our gopher control services is to eliminate the larger predators that usually find their way onto your property in search of a gopher snack, such as coyotes, weasels, skunks, badgers, foxes, and bobcats. And who needs the time and expense of repairing the telephone cables and water lines that gophers tend to chew on, causing an unwelcome interruption of service. The mounds their tunnels cause can also ruin lawnmower blades. In addition, the presence of gophers invites infestations of other pests, including fleas, ticks, mites, and lice. These pesky creatures can also be carriers of such dangerous diseases as rabies.

What is residential pest control?

Residential pest control refers to the services rendered at single-family dwellings. Our treatments can be done inside or outside the property, or both depending on our customer’s needs. We highly recommend that homeowners use both methods of pest control to ensure their property both inside and out remain free from the common insects found in the Palm Desert area.

Residential pest control can also be used in apartments and condos in addition to homes. With routine spray treatments, you can minimize the risk of infestations from insects, including ants, roaches, and termites. Using chemical pesticides, we go around the perimeter of each room and the property.

How often should you do pest control?
How often you should have pest control treatments will vary. There are two different approaches to pest control. One is a preventative treatment, the other eliminating a present infestation. One time visits are needed when an infestation is active. But routine pest control treatments can be scheduled monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly. These can vary based on customers need and budget. We highly recommend for the best preventative course of action to have bi-monthly visits. However, the pesticides we use should be suitable for up to 90-days. Some customers may find that monthly treatments are best, while others quarterly to be a good fit for their needs and budget.
What are the best methods of pest control?
Professional pest controllers use several methods for eliminating infestations and preventative maintenance. Generally, the top two used are organic solutions and traditional chemical pesticides. While natural pesticides are excellent at deterring insects, over time, the solution can become ineffective. The conventional insecticide is highly effective at getting rid of unwanted pests and keeping properties pest-free.

Organic pesticides, while being eco-friendly, isn’t always the best solution. For those that want a specific solution to pests, chemical pesticides are the best remedy for fast and effective results.

Does a new home need pest control?
Absolutely! No home is ‘safe’ from a pest problem. Insects, spiders, and bugs lurk everywhere. New home constructions are no different than older homes. Many of the factors that contribute to an infestation can also be present in a new home, such as leaving food out. But one area that more modern houses have the edge over older homes are better sealed. In most cases, newer homes won’t have a sealing problem around the windows and doors, which is a common entry point for pests. To protect your property, it is always best to have routine treatments. This can prevent any infestations for the life of your home.
